The overview, specifically the strategy session on how to plan for using Social Media was great. The presenter for Twitter and You Tube were very, very good!

The session on LinkedIn was the most relevant. It seems to be the least intuitive resource and having such clear steps and purposes defined will help not only me but my clients as well.

@SMMagic You guys produce great work! Look forward to many more shares in the future.
The Mike Agency
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.
Cynthia Jones Stewart
