Everything you need to know about marketing yourself in social media May 10 2012
By Mark Soroka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For anyone who has read any of Shiv Singh or Stephanie Diamond's phenomenal books, you are in for a treat with "Social Media Marketing for Dummies." It clearly instructs beginners how to harness the power of social media to get their message out to their target audiences. But this book also includes a wealth of information that will benefit even the most experienced Internet marketers. You'll learn how to choose the right social media platforms for your message, how to create social media campaigns, how to find your voice, and much more. For those who are visual learners, you'll appreciate numerous screen shots of actual social media sites. I first read through the book to get a feel of the concepts that were presented. Now I'm going to carefully reread the book and think how I will apply these invaluable concepts to my own social media marketing. For another great book about Internet marketing, be sure to read Stephanie Diamond's "Web Marketing for Small Businesses." In the short time this book has been out, it's already a classic. Using both of these books, you'll be light years ahead of your competition.
