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.

    Covers all topics

    I had heard about Foursquare before but never had the occasion to use it until I had to start managing my client's page. She was unaware that she was even on Foursquare & I had no knowledge so I needed to find some info quick and came across this course in my Google search.

    Of course the fact that it was free was what caught my eye at first but once I signed up and started listening to the class, it was clear how much much knowledge and how thorough the instructor, Jared Hill, is. He presents things in a very simple, easy to understand way and the fact that each video in the section is short and to the point really helps.

    He even provides bonus video & audio at the end of the course with updates, which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking to learn more about Foursquare!
