As someone stated a while back, I think a big reason so many myths about social media marketing pervade in the forum is because of those “Get rich on Fiverr with no skills and no effort” YouTube videos, blog posts, etc. These are not credible sources.
Sellers parrot those and then other sellers parrot those sellers. Please stop this cycle and stop telling sellers to post their gig in groups, forums, Quora etc.!
So I thought I’d share some examples of credible social media sources:
Social Media Examiner - They share fantastic insights, tips and guides. Search “social media examiner” plus keywords for something you want to know about and you’ll get a bunch of helpful results.
Do this for other credible resources like Content Marketing Institute, Neil Patel’s blog, the Optinmonster blog, anything by Madalyn Sklar and the MOZ blog.
I also strongly recommend Hubspot’s free courses on Inbound Marketing and Inbound Sales. You’ll learn how to identify prospect needs and interest and how to tailor your communications to that.
If you’re unsure if a source on social media marketing is credible, feel free to tell me what it is in thread and I will tell you.
