The Facebook Marketing Book is a helpful resource for anyone wanting to get involved in social media marketing.

There you’ll find short chapters on marketing strategies i.e. the how to’s of customizing your FB page, developing a Facebook content strategy, cross-promoting content, managing your FB page and advertising on FB. For those interested in analytics and ROI (Return on Investment), there’s a section about that too.
