The Social Media Pro Certification Program

The Social Media Pro® Certification Program is a proprietary instruction method that has educated more than 30,000 students since 2010.

The program teaches you strategy and best practices for managing social properties on all of the big networks; however, we go much further by showing you how to find clients, how to serve them, and how to get paid.  We specialize in teaching the business of social media management.

Here's how we help you get started…

We know that starting a new path as a freelance SSM can be both exciting (for the potential that it can bring to you) and a bit scary (when stepping into the unknown).  Choosing the right  instruction and support can make all the difference.

After more than a decade or working with our students, we know the road ahead of you. We know all of the hurdles, all of the sticking points, the struggles, challenges, the highs and the lows.  Our program is not just a series of instruction videos. Social Media Pro is a thriving community and a support system that all but assures your success.  

Let's explore what your journey might look like.

When you become a member of the Social Media Pro, three significant events take place…

1. You gain immediate access to our in-depth training platform that takes you by the hand and leads you with confidence through each module.  It starts with basic foundation and then builds your knowledge in layers.  In each of the modules you will find quizzes to test your knowledge along the way so that you can remain confident in your progress.  You'll also be introduced to useful time saving tools, and all of the documents templates that you will need to begin serving clients. 

2. You're also personally welcomed into Social Media Pro Connect (our private Facebook Group) by our Community Manager. This group is where our students and instructors connect and share. All question in the group are answered.  You will find that many of our students have been with us for many years, so in addition to feedback from our instructors you will also be supported by other students.

3. You're invited to our live weekly trainings. In addition to our primary instructors, more than 90 subject matter experts contribute content to our community.   We regularly hold live Q&A sessions for our students, and even perform mini audits of real client accounts.

A very common question is… How long will it take to complete the training? 

The course content is self-paced.  While it is possible to complete the training in less than a month, many of our students complete the training in 6-8 weeks in their spare time. The training system tracks your progress so that it is easy to pick up right where you left off.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need any previous experience?

No previous experience required.

Social media management skills are accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. Chances are that you already spend some time on one or more of the social networks. You may be surprised to know that the average age of a social media manager in our community is between 35 and 55. SMM has become a very popular career choice for those seeking the independence of a freelance business.

What equipment and tools do I need to get started?

A mobile phone, a computer, and an internet connection

As we’ve already mentioned, we are a global community with members in every corner of the planet. Being a SMM is a location independent career choice. This is why a portion of our community chooses to become a digital nomad working remotely from any location with an internet connection. There are some online-software productivity tools that will make your life easier, but even these are optional.

Why is your training program a monthly or annual membership?

Social Media Pro is about community

Years ago we offered a stand-along course and charged a one-time fee. We quickly discovered that the biggest factor for student success was community. The training course is just a small portion of the value that we offer. It is empowering to know that you are creating a freelance business of your own but you are not alone. Our students use our community as their team. imagine that a potential client asks you a question and you don't know the answer. You can simply tell them... "That's a great question. Let me speak with my team and I will get back with you." Then you bring your question to our Connect group where instructors and other community members can share their thoughts and ideas with you about how to best serve your client. So while it is possible to complete the training and cancel your membership after only one month, we have students that have remained with us for the full 11 years as a member because of the community.

How long will it take to complete the training?

The training is self-paced

We understand that learning a new set of skills requires time and attention. While some students have plenty of time to dive right in and give their full attention to the training, others are squeezing in an hour here and there between their current job, their family, and other life demands. The training was designed to be time-flexible. When you enter the training area it is easy to understand right where you last left off. You can even chose to have the system send you progress notifications to help keep uyou focused and on track.

When can I take the Certification Exam? And is there an additional fee?

You are eligible to take the exam once you have completed the 20 module course.

The certification program requires additional staff resources and a 3rd party credential verification system. For this reason we charge a modest $79 fee for the exam and certification. If you do not pass the exam there is no additional fee to retake the exam as many times as you need. Upon successful completion of the exam you can proudly display your certification badge on your website, in your email, and on your social properties. Potential clients can easily verify that active standing of your certification at anytime with the click of a link. See example… Link.
