Make no mistake; this is no ‘Facebook for dummies.’ Peg Samuel and I wrote ‘Facebook Marketing Like I’m 5” to serve as the ultimate social media training system for businesses and entrepreneurs who are smart beginners. They want RESULTS NOW and don’t want to wait months to get profitable on Facebook.
Similarly to my first book, ‘SEO Like I’m 5,’ this is a very practical (and sometimes entertaining) book. The end product is an actionable roadmap for a total makeover of your Facebook business strategy, which will take you from zero to a Facebook marketing hero pronto.
‘Facebook Marketing Like I’m 5’ takes you through the strategic process of designing, building and maintaining an optimal Facebook business presence. You will also learn how to attract new customers, by building a magnetic Facebook community around your own unique brand of content. You’ll learn how to gather not just Likes – but the right kind of Likes – that can move your business ahead and bring you profits.
‘Facebook Marketing Like I’m 5’ features dozens of free tools; step-by-step guides; ‘under-the-hood’ tricks, real-world case studies, and examples of successful (and not so successful) big and small business Facebook strategies.
