Ebook: Beginner’s Guide to Social Media

Thursday, 4 December 2008 — by

The Beginners Guide to Social Media ebook cover graphicThe Beginners Guide to Social Media: an introduction to social media from a business perspective, is my new and free social media ebook, ready to download right now

Running a business and struggling to understand what social media is? Or perhaps you know someone who would like to know more about the very basics of social media?

Hopefully, the title is pretty self-explanatory, but if not, here’s some more information:

“My eBook, The Beginner’s Guide to Social Media is your introduction to social media for businesses. This 35 page illustrated eBook is packed with advice and years of practical social media know-how and hard-earned business experience.”

Here’s just some of the many benefits of understanding social media for businesses:

In addition to the ebook, there’s a blog, which I hope will become a good place to share all of the simple social media hints & tips I come across during my travels.

Right now, there’s three articles, discussing how to make the best of Google Alerts, Google Trends, and a discussion detailing the benefits of having a business blog.

Why business people and why beginners?

There’s a huge cloud of uncertainty when it comes to social media in the broader business community. A lot of business people either don’t understand what it is, what to do with it, what it can do, or whether social media is a threat or a benefit to their business.

When it comes to business, social media can have a dramatic impact, both positively and negatively. So it’s as well that business people understand social media and know how and when to apply social media to their business strategies, marketing campaigns, brand / reputation management exercises et cetera.

There are tons of things being said about social media, but most of it appears to be making the assumption that you know what social media is. For many business people, this really isn’t the case.

So I’ve written The Beginners Guide to Social Media: an introduction to social media from a business perspective, as a total ground-up introduction to social media.

This isn’t just some re-worked PowerPoint or Word file?

No, this is a professionally composed book, prepared using QuarkXpress (a high-end pre-press publishing application), complete with linked index, illustrations / graphics, chapters and linked references to various other articles of my own.

All, I might add, done by yours truly!

I love it.

I think its a good clear introduction to the basics of social media. All marketing managers not already engaging in social media marketing should read this.

The Holy Sanctified Instructional Manual for us ignorant social media fools. Highly recommended read – two thumbs up (if only I had a third thumb). . .
