I have been fortunate to have found and connect with some people online who are “experts’ in Social Media and Social Media Marketing. Social Media Marketing is such a new field that few people are considered experts. One of the people I learned about early on was Shama Kabani. Shama has been doing Social Media Marketing successfully for a few years now, and she has built a huge following and a reputation for being the “Zen of Social Media.”
Shama has lots of resources in which you might consider tapping in to. First, there is Shama.TV, an online site full of short videos with lots oft tips. You can find something useful every day.
The hub of all things Shama is her website The Marketing Zen Group. She offers a free e-book and numerous written articles with great advice. She also has a page with links to several resources including her blog. Along with all of the wonderful resources and tips that Shama offers is her brand new book The Zen of Social Media Marketing: An Easier Way to Build Credibility, Generate Buzz, and Increase Revenue (Ben Bella). By clicking on the title, you can check it out at Amazon.com and order it if you like. The book is set to be released on April 6, 2010. You can read the first chapter on her website here.
I have learned so much from Shama, by what she says and by what she does in terms of social media herself. Hopefully, you can learn from her too!
