I recently wrote a post that got tons of shares:
5 Facebook Pages to Follow to Become a Facebook Expert
After writing it, I realized that all 5 pages I mentioned were dudes -- or companies run by dudes.
And definitely not representative of the ass-kicking that (at least) half the population is doing on Facebook.
So I felt another post was in order to highlight the women in Facebook marketing who are crushing it every day.
If you're smart, you'll use the embedded posts in this article to Like each of their pages.
You'll thank me for it later, I promise.
5 Women in Facebook Marketing You Should Follow TODAY
1. Grandma Mary - Social Media Edutainer
If you're not following Grandma Mary, you're just plain missing out!
Grandma Mary is the alter ego of Andrea Vahl -- co-author of Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies & former community manager at Social Media Examiner.
Andrea... errr ... Grandma Mary shares humorous & practical insights on how to use Facebook for your business.
Also, she has apparently become a world traveler of late!
2. Amy Porterfield
Amy Porterfield might be the most genuine person you can follow on Facebook.
She's down-to-earth, witty, knowledgeable & easy going.
And she might just be the smartest person in the room when it comes to leveraging Facebook for business.
She co-authored "Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies", so I'm guessing Amy knows a bit about Facebook marketing!
She has also created wildly successful information products about Facebook & social media -- and used to run social media for this dude named Tony Robbins.
Heard of him?
Amy deserves your follow! And please... tell her Scott from Post Planner sent ya!
3. Kristi Hines
What can I say about Kristi Hines?!
The woman seems to be on a mission to write a blog post for every major SMM, SEO & internet marketing blog on the web.
Seriously. I challenge you to name a major blog she hasn't written for!
In addition to being a ubiquitous freelance blogger, Kristi also crushes it on Twitter & (yes) Facebook -- offering tons of tips about how to use Facebook & other social tools.
She also recently launched her own website about how to be a freelance writer.
And, yes, Kristi also blogs for our site!
4. Erika Napoletano
OK, so Erika Napoletano may not brand herself as a "Facebook expert", but she kicks ass anyway!
A business coach who helps people "get unstuck", she was once described by Forbes as:
a redheaded, tattooed Tina Fey with a special weakness for four letter words
If that alone doesn't make you want to follow her, then go back & read it again!
Erika provides great tips with lots of humor.
I only recently discovered Erika after reading an article where Facebook confused her for a red-headed porn star.
She embraced the mishap & had fun with it -- as you can see in the photo below:
5. Mari Smith
It's hard to write a blog post about Facebook experts & not include Mari Smith.
Mari has helped pave the way for all of us since she jumped on the scene years ago to teach the world about Facebook & social media marketing.
Many people who do social media for a living will tell you -- they learn from Mari every day.
Currently her focus is training & inspirational speaking.
But Mari is always on the cutting edge of new Facebook changes & developments.
Her page has been around for years & has about 116K Likes. But her personal profile is just insane -- picking up more than 400K followers since Facebook launched the Follow feature nearly 2 years ago.
If you haven't Liked her page or followed her profile you're likely to be living under a rock!
Who'd I miss?
There are plenty of other women in Facebook marketing who deserve a mention here.
But these are my top 5 to follow right now for the latest Facebook marketing & social media tips.
Your turn: Who would you add to this list?
