Social Media Marketing blends essential theory with practical application and covers core skills such as strategic planning for social media applications, incorporating these platforms into the brand’s marketing communications, and harnessing social media data to yield consumer insights. This textbook outlines the “four zones” of social media—community, publishing, entertainment, and commerce—which marketers can use as a part of the strategic planning processes to achieve their core objectives.
The new edition has been extensively updated and expanded to include a new chapter on tactical planning and execution, and covers the latest research within social media marketing. It also incorporates new case studies and examples, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat; and discusses these in relation to globally recognized brands. This adaptation integrates India-specific examples, cases, and data to make the content suitable for the students of South Asia.
