Description

Why Take This Course?

Hashtags help group together conversations taking place on social networks. Everybody is using them to insert their thoughts, comments or strategies into social media conversations.

Each social network has its own unique way to use hashtags. Many people use these in the incorrect manner and wonder why their post doesn't have the reach they were hoping for.

This course is going to put an end to that.

What Should I Expect?

You should expect to have a better understanding of hashtags and know how to use them in the proper manner. You should also be able to differentiate between the different social networks and know the difference in how each network uses hashtags.

Hi all, I am a website designer and photographer who has been working for himself since graduating high school. I taught myself website design and development so I could start my own business. In 2005 I taught myself photography and started a photography business as a professional wedding photographer. Since then, I have helped hundreds companies and organizations market their products and services online. As a photographer, I continue to capture photos and produce video for weddings, events, conferences and more.

I teach because I was taught by so many through blog posts, articles and online videos. Teaching allows me to give back and teach others the way I would have liked to be taught. Many of my courses are free because I believe in giving back.

I am a husband and father with three amazing kids. You can learn more about me at my website. I hope to see you in one of my courses. Thanks so much!
