Our Students LOVE Our Training!

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.
Sylvia Kwan
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.

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.
