Participated in SMMU webinar yesterday- Will help Kreativelearnin fine tune how we use SM to grow our team and buisness
Owner & CEO / Kreativelearnin
I was relatively new to SM prior to the course. The most valuable part of the course for me was the hands-on demonstration that accompanied each webinar. The expertise of each instructor was phenomenal and their teaching skills were perfect. I also enjoyed the expert's book recommendations and case-study/client examples and results. Overall, I loved the course and highly recommend it for any business person.
I earned an Advanced #LinkedIn Certificate through @SMMagic. Course taught by @LinkedInExpert. I highly recommend it!
Just had my last session of SMMU on time management & niche sites. Excellent!

It is hard to pick one session over the others; I feel that every session was filled with useful information that I was able to put into practice immediately. From Twitter to Facebook to LinkedIn to blogging, all of it helped me immensely. I haven't gotten a YouTube site up, yet, but understand the value of that in my overall social media portfolio.

Realtor/Interior Designer / Military Relocator
Just finished the twitter course by @Jeff_Schneider through SMMU and can't wait to implement what I've learned!
The Social Media Marketing University packed a great deal of information into the ten sessions. I was truly clueless on Social Media which is why I initially signed up, and I am thrilled that I now have a much better understanding of how we can use Social Media in building relationships and expanding the visibility of what we do. I appreciate all the transcripts which I will continue referring to as we build our business. I particularly find Jason Alba's strategy and LinkedIn discussions critically important to us, and am glad for the exposure to the other medias that we will no doubt be using.
Another interesting and informative session at SMMU. Thanks!

Media and Brand Coordinator / Vancouver Fashion Week
Great webinar on video marketing today from @lasseweb20 and @SMMagic! #SMMU
The practical aspects of the program - all the 'how-tos' were extremely helpful. The program offered a good balance of strategy and practical implementation. Many programs have too much focus on the strategy or theory - and not enough on how to bring theory to reality.
Great session on using videos and cross-promoting. Great focus on using Social Media to build brand to attract clients.
Market Researcher / Airvan Consulting LLC
Great insights and direction - immediately usable. Thanks SMMU!
