Course Description

“We don’t have a choice on whether we do social & mobile, the choice is in how well we do it.”

The above quote seems illogical. After all, do I not have a choice regarding my use of social and mobile outlets or any new technology? Would avoidance of these new tools protect my reputation?

You could choose the path of technology avoidance, but it would be increasingly difficult to succeed without these digital tools and your reputation could still be compromised. Regardless if you elect to use social media or have a digital presence, people will be looking for you online. When you do not create and manage your digital reputation, you allow others to do this for you. Would you rather have influence over your reputation, or give that control to others?

For example, research indicates that 92% of children under the age of two already have a digital posting about them. Yes, what happens offline stays online. This is a fundamental shift in society. It is a shift that many of us, from schoolteachers to CEOs, have failed to grasp. By taking this course, you have made the choice to produce and protect your best reputation. Nice choice.

What are the requirements?

  • Students should have a very basic understanding of popular social media platforms (such as LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube).

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Identify an intentional branding position for you and your business, as well as ways you can uphold that vision both on and offline.
  • Strategically build a network of over 500 connections on LinkedIn that can help you attain your next job and/or generate promising leads.
  • Know exactly what steps to take when a costly gaffe occurs online.
  • Build your brand as a subject matter expertise so that you will attract free marketing opportunities like speaking, freelance blogging and press interviews.

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is not for everyone, just for those that care about their reputation. Whether you are a student that wants to land a dream job after graduation or a CMO looking to improve your company's digital reputation, this course is for you. You probably have observed the impact that a fully transparent society in the digital age has on a brand, and now you have questions about how to navigate the new terrain. This course will answer those questions and point you in the right direction to be able to not only protect your online identity but leverage digital tools to produce a strong and sustainable digital reputation.
