First Step To Get Started With Social Media – Educate Yourself

There are thousands of resources across the web about social media both in theory and practice. The best thing you can do to get started in earnest with social media is to educate yourself with what’s happening out there.
Why This Is Important

The same reason that you need a license before you can drive. You have to learn the rules of the road. Immersing yourself in practical knowledge is important to having real world perspective about what works and what doesn’t. It’s not about theory. It’s about implementation.

Here are a few blogs I’m going to recommend that have all implemented.
How Social Media Can Fit With Your Plan

You should already be doing marketing anyway. You should always be learning about marketing. These blogs represent the best of the best. Dedicate 25 minutes per day to learn more about social media within the boundaries of these blogs.
Ways To Get Started

Social media is the talk of the planet. But where do you go to learn the best tips and tactics?
