We live in a digital world. We need to understand the language of that digital world in order to communicate effectively and intelligently. Social media includes all channels that connect us socially. The term media no longer applies to just TV, radio, or news. It now includes the social media platforms.
We need to get a good understanding of social media abbreviations, shorthand, and terminology if we are going to interact and stay connected with friends, family, and potential readers, buyers, listeners, etc. Social Media is a tool we can use as authors, entrepreneurs, and those in ministry who have a message. You must let people know about you, your product, or your service.
To do this you need to create a Social Media Platform. Cindy's book, Social Media Marketing for Authors, Entrepreneurs, and Ministers (Order your ARC - advanced reader copy today for $15 and save $5 Just pay $15 today) will help you develop relationships, understand the needs or problems of others, and offer solutions to those problems.
You social media platform needs to consist of a minimum of three channels or sources. Your website, Facebook, and Youtube or Twitter. Your platform needs to be personalized for your particular needs. You probably already have some basic channels in place. Cindy's book shows you what social channels are available and gives you step-by-step instructions on setting them all up and getting started, then using them to market yourself, your book, your product, service, or message.
Before you get started you must become familiar with the terms you have already seen or will see on the Internet. You need to be as savvy as you possibly can so you can be as professional as possible. Hours of research led to this compilation of 92 terms I felt were the most important for you to know as a social media marketer.
Social Media Terminology
If you read over these terms several times you will become familiar enough with them to sound like you know what you are talking about. And you will know. The more you read over these and use them, naturally the more savvy you will be as a social media marketer.
