  • I've been named a top blogger by AdAge (Power150 Media and Marketing blogs) and have managed the strategy, campaigns and Facebook Pages and forums and blogs of TV shows such as JUNIOR MASTERCHEF, IDOL and BIG BROTHER. I specifically adapted these quick courses to bring social media managers like you up to speed efficiently and cost effectively.

    SHORT COURSE: This is a mini-course that is part of a much larger Social Media Campaign course - you will find some videos duplicated from the Campaign course on my corporate account. There are also some videos duplicate from the much larger comprehensive corporate social media press room course.

So if you are just looking for blogging and integrating social media into your website as part of social media campaigns, this is the course for you!
