Nathan Lumpkin
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.

The course helped me understand the vast array of tools and channels to identify prospects, engage in conversations, manage my time, and measure my progress with social media marketing campaigns.
