Book Description

Social Media can help elect a U.S. President, transform the way we educate ourselves and drum up support for disaster relief. What lies beneath the two ominous buzzwords is not some secret game-changing technology but rather a new approach at forming relationships with your audience in real-time. Discover the power of online influence many already rely on.

Social Media for WordPress: A Quicker Way to Build Communities, Engage Members and Promote Your Site is a practical how-to guide on implementing social media marketing techniques to improve user retention and initiate engaging conversations. You’ll learn how to leverage third-party services like Twitter, Yahoo! Pipes and Google Analytics as well as popular WordPress extensions like FeedWordPress, bbPress and BuddyPress.

You’ll learn how to create your own social network, utilize forums and rewards to stimulate interest. You’ll also learn how to automate many marketing activities, so you can spend more time connecting with your audience.

Comprised of easy-to-follow tutorials and supplemental website, you’ll understand how to implement social media strategies.
