Top Social Media Books for Churches and Ministries

Top Social Media Books for Churches and Ministries 2017

As believers, we understand the importance of the written word because it is through the word that we are able to get into a relationship with God.

Even though spending time reading the written ‘Word of God‘ takes the top priority in our lives, we should also spend time reading, learning and improve our knowledge reading the written word on other subjects & areas that can help us serve others effectively.

Reading helps us gain knowledge. Knowledge helps us know the truth. And when we know the truth, the truth will set us free.

That is why I recommend you read the right books on social media and have up-to-date knowledge on the latest online trends & techniques.

But there is one problem: if you try searching for the term ‘Social Media Marketing Books’ on Amazon or Google, you will end up with 1000s of results.

How do you know which books are good?

How do you know which books deserve the limited, precious reading time that you have every day?

Wouldn’t it be great if someone selected the best social media books and gave you a list in one place?

The team at Social Media Examiner do just that every year. They handpick the best books on social media marketing and display it in their book stall during their annual social media marketing conference, Social Media Marketing World (SMMW). And I do the hard work of listing them out for you in one place.

To make it easy for you to get these books and connect with the authors, I have added the Amazon links and the Twitter handles to the list. You can use the ‘search’ box in the table to find books of your favorite author or a book on specific social media channel/topic. Feel free to SHARE this list with your network.

I would like to update this list every year going forward, building up a comprehensive list of social media marketing books with Amazon links. Right now I have listed books that were on display in #smmw16, #smmw17, and I have added my book on social media for churches, The Connected Church to this list. If you like to suggest any other social media book that has helped you, please share the details in the comments and I will add them to this list. Thank you!
