Who is this book for?
Do you have small business that needs some exposure but don’t know where to start when it comes to marketing? are you a regular social media user but you have no clue what content you should post on your business page?

Have you ever wondered how that small online retailer you follow on Instagram has become an overnight success fulfilling thousands of orders a week?

Is it really possible to make sales through low budget Snapchat videos, funny memes, and controversial Tweets?

Whether you’re an online shoe retailer, a local plumber or you run your own freelance consultancy business. If you want to use social media to make you more profit, refresh your current marketing strategy or kick your new business into gear this is the guide for you!

We live in a time where…
Entire businesses are built on platforms like Snapchat, YouTube and Instagram. This book shows you how to grow an audience of loyal followers through content who want to buy whatever you have to sell!

Look around you…Notice how your friend spends 4 minutes trying to upload the perfect a Snap to Snapchat of her food at a cool new restaurant while her dish gets cold? Or, your brother who happily spends hours intently watching YouTube videos of a gamer playing minecraft? How many times a day do you open your social media apps on your phone? We are addicted to social media and the branded content we consume defines us & informs the way we live our lives. Social media has become the first thing we do before we eat, sleep or even acknowledge our surroundings. Have you almost been hit by a bus because you are too busy scanning through your Instagram feed? I have. Many times.

All you need is…
The right content, posted at the right time on the right platform which is viewed by the right person to make your social media business page a success.

Everyone is glued to social media, but how do you make money from it?
This book takes you through our step by step blueprint to social media marketing success, (it isn't yet another wishy washy guide to Facebook advertising).
