According to a recent study, social media is set to explode in 2013 and demand for social media jobs is set to skyrocket. Which social network will rule the roost in the coming year and beyond? We don’t know the answer to this question, but we do know which resources keep us in the loop and keep us abreast of the many changes in this exciting and multi-faceted field.
Below we highlight and link to four Facebook resources that we highly recommend you follow as well, if social media is a topic near and dear to your heart.
4 Facebook Accounts To Follow For Good Social Media Tips and Tricks
1. Hub Spot
Although Hub Spot is a service company they have a great internet marketing blog with an equally good social media section. They are also on Facebook with a fan page that boasts an impressive 179,000 likes and close to 3,500 fans. This is a good Facebook follow if you seek good kernels and morsels of information on social media and internet marketing in general. Looking at their Facebook page (today) you will find the following: “How do Spotify, Instagram, and Zynga use effective calls-to-action to grab attention?” and “How to Engage Facebook Fans With Images”. Hub Spot is a great resource to keep up with the various social networks on the web and they also have a series of free ebooks available on social media.
Similar to Inc mentioned below, Entrepreneur is a magazine that launched ages ago, yet has managed to stay relevant this many years later. Aside from the immensely useful and affable magazine they run, they also have a website which is constantly updated with topics of interest to web business owners. From management to sales and finances to marketing, it’s all covered here and worthy of a spot in your bookmarks. The Entrepreneur fan page on Facebook has 177,000 likes and over 5,000 fans.
3. Amy Porterfield
Amy Porterfield is no slouch in the Facebook fan page department, she has 17,000 plus likes and over 800 fans. What I like about Amy is that she conducts regular webinars on topics relating to social media such as Facebook and Pinterest. She is very active on her fan page and engages her audience with frequent questions, quotes and good link resources. You will love Amy and her good social media tips and tricks.
Inc is a business magazine that has been around for quite some time, but its corresponding website is chock full of good (and recent) action oriented information on marketing topics including social media. Everyday the site is updated with concise and fun information you can apply to your business; be it a service, product or website. We would almost recommend you use the website over the magazine, but they both contain good tips. Just keep in mind, the website is, of course - going to contain more recent content. Inc is on Facebook and their fan page is a hit with over 100,000 likes and close to 3,000 fans.
