Social media has created an exciting and challenging world of new possibilities for marketers. The opportunities are vast, but only if you find specific ways to use social media for achieving your marketing goals -- goals such as: increasing website traffic; improving lead generation; generating incremental sales revenue; improving search engine rankings; and maximizing brand exposure.

The Social Marketing ROAD Map Handbook is designed to help you ascend this steep learning curve, providing the practical tools and techniques you need to develop a streamlined process for achieving social media marketing objectives that can be easily and routinely performed.
Developing an effective strategy for integrating social media into the marketing mix presents a significant obstacle to the successful adoption of social media marketing.

Based upon our ROAD Map methodology, this handbook is a step-by-step guide to mapping your social marketing strategy. It is loaded with research-based insights on proven practices, hands-on worksheets and checklists, and social marketing case studies featuring the real life successes of marketers like you.
It is intentionally “social media brand agnostic”, meaning that familiar technology brands like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. are used only when necessary as tactical examples. The purpose of this approach is to help you develop a strategy that will outlive technology brands that are often here today and gone tomorrow.
