Description

Content creation. Planning and execution. Reviewing analytics. A/B testing. These are just some of the words that you will hear a lot in the field of social media. Those who claim to be “influencers” do not understand what these words truly means. To understand social media is knowing that you have established yourself or an organization on a platform with the goal of reaching a specific audience with the type of content you are presenting them. With the growing number of people interested in the field there is now a need for better training done to help those individuals. Especially due to the fact that a lot of these content creators and managers are as young as 14-year-olds. That’s where we come in. This program is designed to break down the ins and outs of social media management and marketing. Taking what you already know about social media, we will build on those skills and identify new ways for you to analyze and market content on social media. From learning about social media funnels to establishing a marketing plan that is targeted to a reach a specific audience. By applying you understand that you will be in a 10-week social media training program that will lead to you obtaining an internship with an organization of our choosing after completion. The internship will allow you to showcase the skills you’ve learned over the course of the 10-week period and build the foundation of a future career in social media.
