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.
