My Social Media Toolkit – Great PDF’S, Who to Follow, What Links to Bookmark and More

In the ever-changing landscape of Social Media, reading, learning and keeping up to date with emerging trends and technologies is a must. However sometimes in the mass of complex and heavy jargon ridden articles written by social media ‘gurus’ and ‘experts’ it can become a bit overwhelming and you end up reading for hours, finding yourself more worried about what you don’t know than all the things you do know. For me personally I have no time for those type of articles, I simply want to be given straightforward and no-nonsense advice about what I should be doing and how I should be doing it. After all, in the words of the great Albert Einstein: ‘‘If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough’’ and on that philosophy is how I go about my social media consulting and management. So now I am sharing with you the best PDF’S, Links and People that I have come across that will give you the same straightforward, no-nonsense advice for you to learn from.
