Course Description

Are your social media marketing efforts paying off? Do you want to constantly increase the growth of your business on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, and other social platforms?

By the time you read this, social media will be old hat. However, brands and businesses of all sizes have used it to increase their internet presence, create leads, and increase sales. Apple, Intel, Caterpillar, Singapore Airlines, Ikea, Changi Airport, Coca-Cola, Nike, and Starbucks are well-known B2B and B2C brands.

While some have succeeded, most people find that their online efforts do not produce the desired results. This is frequently due to a lack of grasp of how social media works or a lack of a more in-depth comprehension of the platform’s dynamics.

This advanced-level training, designed for current corporate and individual social media users, will provide a step-by-step approach to managing your social media marketing function systematically and sustainably. It covers the following 5-steps using the easily remembered acronym ACE-ING! :

  • Examine: Examining your existing social media situation
  • Curate: Creating content ideas and organizing them into a calendar.
  • Advanced social media content tactics and approaches must be implemented.
  • Navigate & Infer: Data comprehension and response
  • Governance: Long-term management of your social media role 

It presents a process for you to increase your social media presence more scientifically, guided by best practices in both B2C and B2B enterprises.

During the course, you will learn and use advanced methods and tactics from behavioral economics, narrative, data analytics, and brand building. You will also be given the tools and strategies necessary to manage your company’s social media function and create your own social media SOPs.

Testimonials

“This SEO course was very helpful, and I was able to help my organization fix problems and increase organic search traffic over the past few months. The presentation materials were thorough and well put together. It was a very educational and enlightening experience.”

 

“This SEO course has been very helpful to me because it is directly related to my job. I would recommend this course to anyone who is in charge of digital marketing campaigns, whether they do it themselves or hire someone else to do it.”

“SEO is a technical and dry subject, but Rachel’s SEO training class isn’t like that at all. She didn’t use too many technical or big words so that my classmates who weren’t as technical could also understand. She uses single examples and illustrations to help me and the other people in my class understand. She also says important ideas over and over again to make sure we remember them.

Rachel’s instructions during our hands-on sessions are clear and to the point. She talks about what was done and what happened as a result. The pace of the class was good. Even the older people in my class, like my uncles and aunts, can follow along and do the practical work.”

Thank you very much, Rachel, for getting me started with SEO.

“The SEO course materials were very useful and covered a lot. The two-day course taught me a lot about how SEO works and what its implications and strategies are. This course was helpful, and Tydus was a great teacher. He is a very knowledgeable expert who took the time to slowly and thoroughly explain ideas, strategies, and SEO tools to use.”
