Social Media Training for your Creative Business

Exciting! Look thats my name...

I've been taken on as a tutor over at the fab new Creative University!

I'm going to be offering a 6 week course covering all aspects of Social Media.  Six weeks to share my tips for creating a really good social media strategy that suits you and your business. There are 20 spaces :)

I'll be on call to answer queries, I'll set you homework and I'll feedback on everything you do during the six weeks, so you wont be left confused, you'll have my personal attention to help you work through the course.

This wont be one of those faceless courses where an email just drops into your inbox, I'll get to know you (via all the various social media channels we'll be discussing) and I'll be supporting you throughout the whole time.

You'll also be supported by the other people on the course, just as if it were a real classroom and we'll have online areas where you can come to and chat with me and them, ask all the burning questions you have and importantly get your social media strategy really well defined.

There is a summary below of the course which costs £99  - I know it's a lot of money, but there's an awful lot of content that you will have to keep and refer back to as well as having me there to answer your specific questions of how to apply what you are learning to your own strategies.
