I picked up some really helpful tips for Twitter, Facebook & YouTube!
Heather Husson
Project Manager / Health Evidence
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
Great Webinar on Social Media Marketing Best Practices from SMMU. Step by step on how your business should use social media.
Mary Dimitrijeska

I found the Q&A session to be most informative as it tied what we learned with the session to practical experience. All of the session leaders were extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable in their area of expertise! Thank you!

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.
