Taking the guesswork out of social media 

Social Media Marketing Books

Luan Wise

Almost seven years after it was first published, the second version of Relax! It’s Only Social Media is now available from Amazon!

Planning for Success: A practical guide to setting and achieving your social media marketing goals.

This book was intended to be a second edition, to bring the text up to date. Little did I know that what I initially envisioned as simple changes would turn into an entirely new book.
I started planning the update in 2019, with the idea of publishing in 2020. I don’t think anything went to plan during the unprecedented global pandemic!
I think, and hope, that the delay has made this book better and more relevant than ever.

Relax! now represents a collection of my knowledge from 2016, while Planning for Success embodies everything I have learned since then, through working with clients, conducting training courses, and immersing myself in reading and observation. It includes insights from research conducted in collaboration with Professor Laura Chamberlain, Warwick Business School.


Social Media for Work, part of the Bloomsbury Essentials Series, was published on 7th December 2023.

Smart Social Media will be released in September 2024.
