We live in a very social world. Wherever you look, social media surrounds us. Every day, we’re bombarded with messages to connect on social networks. This is not going to change anytime soon.
Needless to say, companies around the globe are using social media to engage with their potential customers and ultimately make more money. So why shouldn’t you do the same?
I’m going to be honest with you – I was never really a social media guy. I knew the basics, I knew the potential, but I never really put a ton of effort into social media and took the whole thing seriously.
Now I know that was a big mistake, and social media is going to becoming increasingly important from here on out. So I decided to go for it.
Turns out it wasn’t quite as scary as I thought. 🙂
Still, I was no expert. Not even close. Though with the right knowledge, I knew 2015 could be the year I finally tapped into the potential of social media.
When I heard Joy Healey had released her new eBook, “From Social Media Beginner To Expert In 33 Days”, I knew it was a book I had wanted to read.
For those who don’t already know Joy, she is a blogger and internet marketer who shares valuable information that will help you build your business. Her site covers a large variety of blogging and business topics, and if you haven’t checked it out already you should do so ASAP because her content is top-notch.
Anyway, to the book itself: there’s a lot of great info in here that any blogger can benefit from. It doesn’t matter if your blog is on marketing or underwater basket weaving, a thorough knowledge of social media is going to help you make more sales.
However, having an understanding of the networks is not enough. You have to know which networks are actually worth being active on, and then know how to utilize those networks for maximum effect. You have to create posts that really connect with your followers, which is why Joy dedicated two entire chapters towards structuring your posts for maximum engagement.
A lot of other important topics are covered as well, such as automation and finding images to share.
It should come as no surprise that images play a huge part in social media success. Not only are they far more likely to be seen while your target audience is browsing, but they also can be seen by entirely new people.
This is especially true with Facebook. If you own a fanpage and post an update with an image, anybody that likes or comments on that image will have the image pushed to their newsfeeds for all of their friends to see. This allows you to reach an entirely new audience, bringing in new fans for free. This is one reason why Facebook pages tend to grow exponentionally.
As far as automation goes, there’s a lot of great tools mentioned (both free and paid) that will help you automate your posting on a few different networks. Over the long-term, automating will save you hundreds of hours of time. That’s pretty cool!
But the real question is…
Is It Worth Buying?
Unless you already consider yourself a social media expert, I think there’s something for everybody to gain by purchasing Joy’s book. I personally felt the chapter on automation alone was well worth the cost to me, because the knowledge I gained from reading that chapter alone is bound to save me a ton of time in the future.
I’ll be honest here – this book is a perfect intro for beginners looking to gain a thorough amount of knowledge on social media. Even if you already know a bit, there’s still a lot of new info I’m sure you can benefit from. I’ve been on these networks for years and a lot of information in this book was completely new to me.
Plus, the book comes with a 23-page bonus eBook called “5 Steps To Big Online Profits” as well as access to a private 600+ member group which discusses and covers all aspects of social media.
Really, this book is a steal at only $10. Think about it – only one sale will make back the price of this book, and then some. If you actually take the knowledge contained in this book and put it to use, you’re certain to make money. I’ll say it again – social media is more important than ever, and you’ve got to be a part of it if you’re a business owner.
And I don’t know about you, but if I can pay $10 for knowledge that will make me way more money in the long run, I’d be a fool not to make the investment.
