Social marketing has received a lot of hype, but lately companies of any size have realized they need to take social media serious. In 2009 Facebook had more than 300 million users, and roughly half of these logged in every day. Twitter attracted more than 22 million unique visitors every month and YouTube had more than 100 million users in the US alone. Now if millions of people spend time on social media web sites every day it is obviously important for any business to be “social” and make best use of the marketing opportunities this new media provides. Problem is most companies have no idea how to use social media for marketing and at the same time the traditional non-internet based marketing channels seems to become less effective. This is why the Social Media Manager role is currently in huge, HUGE demand. Yesterday I heard about Let’s Get Social that may help you take advantage of this situation. It is a complete training program aimed at turning you into a successful Social Media Manager.
OK let’s take a look at what Let’s Get Social contains and what you can expect from it on your Social Media Manager journey. There are six video based modules where the experienced social media manager Kate take you through how she has managed to build a profitable business in 18 month working part time mostly from her mobile phone. Also there are also the usual bonuses provided for free with this product, but in this case I think they are worth taking. What I really like is the contract material Kate is using with her own clients. This can kick start your business and then Kate participates in weekly coaching calls for the first 4 weeks. Finally the Let’s get allow anyone taking part in the training to use their logo and brand to build their business fast. Good idea…I don’t know but it is up to you really. At least it may save you spending money on your own designs.
