This program is easy to understand and follow. You can do it at your own pace and get the most out of all that is available to you. The only problem you will have is choosing the 2 electives you want after your 6 core courses. There are so many great choices for electives!

The notes that can be downloaded and reviewed for later are very helpful. I am even able to follow along with the webinars and fill in any questions and post additional notes regarding Social Media.
Tracy McCauley
Product Specialist / Jorlink USA Inc.
I was amazed at what I didn't know before I entered the program! SMMU provided an incredible overview as well as specific tips and tricks of all the social media sites. I feel like I have a very good understanding of how it all works now and have seen my business begin to track upward since beginning the course.
Kelly Nygard
Social media Consultant / The Current
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.
