• “A lot of people have social media accounts, but not a lot
of people understand how to gain followers, when to post
to get the most hits, or how to write short copy to engage
people reading a gigantic newsfeed. In addition, we are
really learning about social media from the angle of
marketing, branding, and return on investments. A huge
component of life on social is being able to measure the
engagement and growth, and this program teaches you
how to grow your brand through social media and make it
part of an integrated marketing strategy.”
