If you want to become a social media marketing ninja, you need to understand that social media is not a quick fix solution to your marketing problems. I will speed up the process as much as possible for you, but you need to understand that this is a long-term commitment both to the community that you build and also to your own professional development.
You will need to master new skills that might take you out of your comfort zone, and learn strategies that might seem at odds with everything you have learned so far in your career. You will also need to understand how everything fits in with your current business model and sales funnel (assuming you are already in business), but the benefits will be worth it.
Join Me in The Dojo!
Hi I’m Alan Martin, owner and founder of Chat Marketing. I’ve created some resources to get you started on your journey towards becoming a social media ninja, but first I would encourage you to join my private Facebook Group, ‘The Social Media Dojo‘. The Dojo is for people like you who are serious about crushing it with their social media marketing and want to be kept up-to-date with the most important online marketing developments. It is also a place to ask questions, share experiences and support each other.
I’m in there virtually every day answering questions and sharing tips and useful resources. It’s free to join, so you’ve got nothing to lose! You can even give your business a plug when you introduce yourself to the others in the Group, when you join. All I would ask in return is that if you find it of value, you help me spread the word about the group by sharing the group URL below with one other person (www.facebook.com/groups/thesocialmediadojo/).
Once you have signed up for The Dojo, visit our ‘Resources‘ page to start your learning journey. I recommend getting hold of some of the books that I mention on the ‘Recommended Reading‘ page, sign up to a few of the podcasts, then head over to the Blog section of the website and browse the list of blog posts for topics that are of interest to you.
When you visit the blog home page, you will notice a search box over on the left hand side of the page. You can use that to find blog posts relating to any keywords that you are interested in. Each blog post is also segmented into a specific category e.g. “Email Marketing” to make it easier for you to find the content that you are looking for.
To browse the list of available categories check out the “Categories” menu on the left-hand side of the blog home page.
I’ve also got some free online training courses that you can access here.
Enjoy the journey!
