Your Guide to Social Media Enlightenment – From Trending Topics to Innovative Startups

10 Things I’ve Learned from Reading Social Media 101 by Chris Brogan

Introduction to Social MediaIt has been deeply challenging to summarize what I’ve learned from reading Social Media 101 authored by Chris Brogan simply because I’ve learned a lot, so this list comes with a caveat. It represents the main things I’ve taken away, but by no means covers all topics, however, it will give you a glimpse at the value of buying this book. This is what I’ve learned:

  1. How to hit the ground running with starting effective social media initiatives, how to hire social media personnel, and measure their effectiveness.
  2. Information from a very well chosen plethora of useful websites.
  3. In depth, practical ways of becoming a successful blogger.
  4. How to create and sustain a strong personal brand.
  5. Importance of actively listening, finding your customers, interacting and engaging with them and giving them something they value.
  6. Importance of trust and transparency.
  7. Importance of using social media to reach your consumers.
  8. How to effectively create and execute a social media strategy.
  9. How to leverage key social media websites to work for you.
  10. Real-life experiences of companies using social media.
