The Original Social Media Strategist Certification Since 2009

They say imitation is the highest form of flattery, and since we created the world’s first Social Media Strategist Certification in 2009 there are imitators popping up everywhere. We don’t mind the competition, but when you enroll with Social Media Marketing University you’ll instantly understand why the imitation is always 2 steps behind.

More Certification Students Than ANY Other Training Center

It has been said that “practice makes perfect”. After training more than 125,000 students Social Media Marketing University has obviously had a lot of practice. Many of our students are studying for a specific interest and only take one or two workshops or certificate courses, and well over 7,000 have enrolled in our full Social Media Certified Strategist training.

Solid Focus on What is Really Important to Your Business

We help you stay focused on what really matters, so you never have to worry about being overwhelmed or intimidated by the curriculum. Also, our highly-targeted curriculum allows us to limit the scope of our training so our courses are always the most up-to-date and taught by our hand-picked expert strategists. What this means is that you’ll never have to worry about the quality of the training and you’ll be able to get in, enjoy your training, and get your certificate without all the fluff. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone focused on quality instead of trying to impress you with “hundreds of courses”?
