“Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live.” - Anne Sweeney 

With this quote in mind, I created this course to provide you with the tools and techniques you need to become an awesome social media manager, and help you design your own freedom lifestyle, whatever that may look like to you. 

Whether you want to travel the world while working from your laptop as a digital nomad like myself, or just want to work from home so you can spend more time with your loved ones - either way, you're in the right place. 

What can you expect? 

Unlike a lot of other courses out there, I'm not promising you a multi-million dollar income with minimal effort. 

What I can promise you is that if you follow the steps I teach you and you keep a hard-working, positive attitude throughout the course - you will have the best chance at guaranteeing your own success. 

I landed my very first client the day I set up my online profile and replaced my full-time income within 4 months of working online - all the while working less and travelling more.

All of the content you will find here, therefore, is based on the exact tips and techniques I wish I knew about when I first began working online - combined with the latest knowledge of the rapid-moving social media world.

Why is this course special?

I know you probably already know how to post a status on Facebook, and how to like a comment on in the hopes of cutting all the fluff and filler out, I've only included the most in-depth tutorials, featuring skills that every business out there with an online presence desperately needs.

Most importantly, I've found that too many courses out there take the classic ‘textbook approach’. As in, they provide you with a whole lot of information and often leave you feeling completely directionless at the end. 

Instead, this course is designed in a way that provides you with an exact blueprint, or checklist, to follow when you finish. 

Not only that, but you will be given all the steps you need to set up your profile, find freelance jobs, nail your proposals and impress the pants off your clients. 

By the end of the course you'll have the skills you need to get started in your career as a social media manager and enjoy the freedom that comes with being a digital nomad! 

Remember - Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

Some course highlights:

  • Finding your purpose -  Narrow down your purpose, discover your "why" and find the care factor which will make you an irreplaceable asset to any business
  • Guarantee your success -  Take charge of your own success and learn all the best tips on how to achieve it
  • Social media platforms - Get a behind-the-scenes look into Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, LinkedIn and Live Video
  • Content creation -  Learn the techniques that have made me stand out from my competition by thinking outside of the box. Discover how to create graphics, gifs, infographics, presentations and edit images - all using free resources, no prior design skills necessary
  • Creating a social media strategy -  Learn the tricks I have used to land my dream clients from the very beginning. Tricks that you can copy and use in your own online work
  • Community management -  Would you like to get paid to sit on Facebook all day and answer people's questions? Stay tuned, because you might be able to do just that!
  • Measuring success -  Find out exactly how you can interpret analytics on all the social media platforms and how to include these in your reports
  • Upwork logistics -  Find everything you'll need to know about looking for clients, submitting proposals, getting paid etc. through Upwork
  • Setting up your profile -  Establish a powerful online presence and discover personal tips along the way
  • Course summary & What's next -  Get the exact blueprint for what you need to do in order to get started the day you finish the course!

The only question that remains is - are you ready to invest in yourself and create the lifestyle you’ve always wanted?

I hope to see you on the other side!

Social Media Manager & Creative Teacher

Hi, I’m Maggie!

A Canadian freelancer, creative travel blogger and social media ninja! 

As a full-time digital nomad, I have travelled all over the world while working from my laptop. 

I started out just like you, interested in working online but struggling with the lack of quality courses out there. It wasn't until I found social media management that I felt like something just clicked for me and all of the pieces of the puzzle began to fit together. 

Since that day, my clients have been featured in The Huffington Post, ProBlogger, The Sydney Morning Herald and Cosmopolitan, just to name a few. 

Along with creating and managing complex social media strategies, I have also been responsible for overseeing several six-figure product launches and campaigns. 

My passion for teaching comes from a combination of insatiable creativity and a never fading need to pay it forward and help as many people as I can to quit their 9-5 and never look back! 

My teaching style is conversational, incredibly hands-on, and focused on accommodating different learning styles.

Ultimately my goal is simply to take the daunting guess-work out of working online and teach social media in a way that makes you empowered and excited about your future as a digital nomad!
