Our guide to navigating social media for beginners can help whether you are looking to join your very first social media site or want to try showcasing your business on a new platform.

Why Social Media?

Using social media sites to represent your brand is a great way to engage with customers, both new and prospective. Nearly one out of every four people worldwide are connecting with each other using social media, so you definitely want to make sure you are getting in on the conversations.

How to Get Started

The social media beginners guide provides you with insight into:

  • The different platforms to try (yes, you can go beyond Facebook and Twitter!)
  • How to connect with people once you’re there
  • What content gets the best response
  • How great you’ll feel once you’ve established your presence and started to create a buzz around your business!

Plus, there’s a bonus section on using LinkedIn to reach out to other professionals and how to make sure they can find you as well.

The guide begins with a foreword by Scott Stratten, president of UnMarketing and one of Forbes.com’s top 5 social media influencers worldwide. Find out what Scott learned when he decided to give Twitter a 30-day intensive trial, and what it took for him to finally “get” social media.

    hey Guys

    that’s a good guide to help beginners get results with their social media campaigns

    I recommend they stick with it, even if in the beginning results are low or non existent. What counts in business is to persevere and learn from your own mistakes, isn’t it?

    Thanks, John! That is great advice. It definitely can take some time to get the results that you want, but with a little work you’ll really start to see great things happening. And if you find, over time, that you’re not getting a lot from one site you can always try your hand at another one!

    Love the guide. I have a forum and i consider “it” as my social media strategy – but i also use Facebook and Twitter, but don’t maximize it to its fullest potential. Thanks for the guide.
