If you try searching for the term ‘Social Media Marketing Books’ on Amazon or Google, you will end up with 1000s of results. 

With easy self-publishing options, there are more authors writing and publishing books on social media marketing now than ever before.

How do you know which books are good? How do you know which books deserve your precious reading time?

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

The team at Social Media Examiner used to do just that every year (till 2018). They handpicked the best books on social media marketing (written by the SMMW conference speakers, who are the top experts in their field) and displayed it in their bookstall.

If you are wondering what SMMW (Social Media Marketing World) is, it is one of the best social media conferences in the world (and my favourite annual event) organized by Social Media Examiner and is held in San Diego, California, USA.

And till last year, I listed all those books from SMMW stall here in one place. But since they have had not a bookstall since last year, I have done my best (online research and asking references from friends) to keep this list up to date. 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.

Contributors: I would like to specially thank and acknowledge my friends who responded to my question on Facebook and sent their suggestions – Kelly Noble Mirabella, Jamie Samples, Stephanie Nissen, Heather Roach Heuman and the one-and-only Donna Moritz.

Feel free to SHARE this list with your network.

As a knowledge-driven marketer, I value the wisdom that one could get from reading the right books. Especially in a field like Social Media Marketing that has so many moving parts, having the right knowledge from the right sources can make all the difference.

So go ahead and start reading!

I would like to update this list every year going forward, building up a comprehensive list of social media marketing books with Amazon links.

If you like to suggest any other recent social media book that has helped you, please share the details in the comments and I will add them to this list.

Thank you!

Stay connected. Stay blessed.
