Living in my world, I forget there are many people who aren’t using the tools available at their fingertips. We plan weekend trips and wedding showers through Facebook, and Google is practically a teacher. Smartphones make it easy to share every thought, and even Angry Birds has become its own movement in pop culture. And then I try to look up marketing executives online and they have no digital footprint.
I can understand privacy, but to not exist online? How can you be a leader in your field, especially if your business is all about making a name for your brand, and not have any representation of your capability online? To not even have a LinkedIn profile, or perhaps worse, consider it a hassle instead of an asset?
Not everyone is “doing” social media, and it isn’t a fad that will go away. It is a layer that adds color to your portfolio and can create a portrait of yourself as a professional. If you have a handle on it for yourself, imagine what you could be doing as a representative of your company.
If you’re ready to take your social media efforts to the next level, Brazen Careerist can get you there. Register now for Brazen U’s premier Executive Social Media Bootcamp, a rigorous 4-week online course that will help you develop and implement a winning social media strategy – whether social media is 10 percent or 100 percent of your job.
This course is for people who know that just having a presence on Facebook and Twitter is not enough. This class is for people who want to use social media to connect, engage, market and sell your product or message – and learn how to do it right and have maximum impact – and is applicable to any business, corporation, non-profit, government agency, or freelancer.
Brazen’s Executive Social Media Bootcamp is offered 100 percent online, so you can enroll from anywhere around the country (or world, for that matter) and participate from the convenience of your office, home, favorite coffee shop, or any location you choose. The course will take place on a private, secure, and password protected website that can be accessed only by program students. Brazen will send information and detailed instructions on how to access and use the site to all participants a few days before the start of the course.
The Executive Social Media Bootcamp is a mixture of curated readings, videos, live and exclusive pre-recorded segments. And if you can’t make one of the live web conferences or Q&A calls, they will make the transcript and video available for download afterward for all participants. Take a look online and see the number of great speakers and programs lined up in the agenda. You’ll be pretty impressed.
Brazen will also offer a weekly, live networking opportunity to students via our mothership, Brazen Careerist, where you’ll get the chance to meet and network with our featured speakers and your fellow classmates. Studies show that you are more successful in a course if you know and respect your peers and it’s a great way to build your professional network of other social media experts. Trust us, you’ll be among people that you’ll want to know!
The program begins September 6th and runs until September 30. If you’re interested, go online and enroll now. Brazen is offering a reduced registration rate of $245 if you register before August 31. I highly recommend this to those of your looking to answer the question: How will I differentiate myself?
