Social media marketing is more complex than ever before. Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube have more than two billion users today. Any social media manager who knows how to address people and how to reach them is worth a lot to the company. Social media is the new instrument in marketing. No matter if Facebook Advertising, Group Marketing, Community Management, Instagram Stories, YouTube SEO, or Influencer Marketing. The possibilities and means of social media expand month by month, month by month again and again. The development of social networks is progressing and, of course, the complexity for individual social media managers is also increasing. The Social Book provides all the basics that beginners in the field of social media marketing need to run successful campaigns. These basics arise for example from practical agency experience, many conversations with customers and of course also concepts and strategies for individual social media channels or also more complex, cross-media influencers and advertising campaigns.

Important social media tips you should know

There are many questions about social media marketing. As a rule, this is not even about the really complex subject areas, but often only about very central questions such as:

  • What are social networks and what makes them?
  • What is the purpose of social media in everyday life?
  • What is User Generated Content?
  • Why do companies use Social Media Marketing?
  • How does Social Media Marketing actually work?
  • How to measure the success of your social media marketing?
  • For which companies is Social Media Marketing?
  • What skills and knowledge does a Social Media Marketing Manager need?
  • What are the goals of Social Media Marketing?

For all social media managers, whether beginners or advanced, for young entrepreneurs and startups, but also for self-employed, such as designers, hairdressers, online shops, “The Social Book is the perfect foundation to understand the world around social media marketing. “The Social Book” is less a concrete recommendation for action than an intellectual guideline. It is a guide that will help you understand social media.

Those who know how to manage the leap between the different social networks and use the individual advantages of the social networks around Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok can achieve great success.

In addition to social media marketing, it is also about the basics, social connections and, of course, the emergence of social networks. Because in order to plan the actions in today’s social networks, it is worth taking a look at the history behind it. Although the chapter is only very short, it gives a good insight into the current expansion, but also into future developments. In addition, it deals with social connections and group dynamics.

However, the book not only provides a detailed basis on the subject of social media management, community management and social media marketing, a large chapter also deals with the subject of social advertising in the best-practice example, Facebook. Facebook also includes Instagram and WhatsApp, two of the largest networks we use on a daily basis. That’s exactly why it’s worth taking a look at the Facebook Advertisement Manager, because here you can learn a lot and later put the theory into practice for your own company.

The Business Book

Becoming an entrepreneur is not difficult, but being an entrepreneur is very difficult. Already knew 9 of 10 startups failed in the first 5 years. When I am on the road during my lectures, this is often the first step to make it clear to the young entrepreneurs that every person around them has to fail if they want to survive as entrepreneurs themselves. The reality check for entrepreneurs is pretty brutal. Nobody remembers the pyramids that fell. Everything talks about those who are still standing. It’s the same with entrepreneurs. Failure knocks on the door faster than you’d expect. This book is the result of my experience as an entrepreneur, the lectures and the reflection of the audience. More about: The Business Book.
