There is a lot of talk about social media and so many businesses are unsure of how to begin using it or even deciphering if it's right for them.

It's important to realize that social media marketing works best when integrated with other components of your marketing. You will want to use it to drive potential consumers to your website, where you have an established presence online. You can also use social media in conjunction with traditional advertising mediums, like Television commercials, print ads and/or radio spots that you use in your marketing strategy, by driving potential consumers to your social media presence online.

The key to social media and the most important thing to realize is that it's not about having a megaphone to shout about your products and services, but rather to interact and engage with potential customers; by doing this you will see them be drawn to your business naturally.

Hi Debra, actually it’s an e-course so it comes in the form of an email. :) That’s why it looks like a newsletter subscription, I promise you are signing up for the course. Welcome aboard, I look forward to working with you.

I’d like to sign up. Is this something I must complete within a straight 7-day period, or is it ok if I don’t get chance to get to my computer a couple days, so in essence complete the 7 day readings within say 9-10 days?

Hi Terri, this is a self-study course, so you can do it at you own pace. The lessons are just delivered in a 7 day sequence :)

This is not a certified course, just a great way to gain a basic understanding of social media marketing and how it can work for businesses when it comes to marketing.
