Are you in the market for a social media marketing training course?
You’ve come to the right place to learn more about remote learning, social media management training and online training resources.
In this article, you will learn how to select the right social media marketing training that suits your learning style, covers your content needs, enhances your current expertise and works with your schedule!
Social Media Marketing Training
Whether you are completely new to social media marketing and the role of social media manager, or you already have work experience, now is not the time to stop learning.
In fact, we encourage you to keep learning about marketing, new social networks, and to keep adding new skills to your repertoire at all times during your marketing career.
Step one to doing this is to first identify what you know and what you do not know. Making a list is a good way to get started.
If you are strong on Facebook knowledge but do not frequently run advertising campaigns for clients, you might want to sign up for a Facebook ads course to brush up or to get up to speed.
As a social media marketer, you need to be well-versed in marketing strategies on all social media platforms. Therefore, it would benefit you and your future clients to take platform-specific courses to fill in the gaps where needed.
If it so happens you are brand new to this industry and you are looking to start working as a freelance social media manager, taking a complete course on all things social media as well as running a social media management business is what we would recommend.
Improving Your Marketing Skills
In order to grow your personal brand on social media to get more clients or get that next job opportunity, improve your marketing skills.
Marketing skills can be added to your resume, your LinkedIn profile and to any job application and social media management proposal.
Marketable marketing skills include – but are not limited to
- Google Analytics
- Social Media Ad Campaigns
- Microsoft Excel
- Google Ads
- Web Design
- Adobe Suite
- Digital Marketing
- Video Editing
You can learn these skills before you start a new job in the industry or before you start a business. Then make it a goal to learn something new each and every year thereafter!
Online training courses for these skills and others are readily available, often at a low cost, or free. They can be a powerful tool to power up and improve your resume to help you stand out in a crowd of social media marketers.
Learning With Online Courses
There is a myriad of free online courses you can take to improve your skills, per the previous paragraph.
The main problem with piecing together a social media education, so to speak, with free online training is that you will not be able to discern when you are ‘done’ or ‘ready’ to get out into the field.
Ideally, you find one company who teaches you their methods, their skills and helps you start your career as a social media marketer straight away!
Without a guide of all the things you need to know we ask you this; how will you know when you are finished and ready to go out into the workforce?
Much like what Social Media Pro teaches in Social Strategist Pro – starting without a clear social media strategy and plan is setting yourself up to fail – the same is true for those looking to get started in this industry!
Those interested in working as a social media manager need to set clear goals and pick a high-quality training program to get them on their way.
