How does your course differ from others out there?
We haven’t taken all the other courses so we can’t speak to exactly how they compare. the Founders of the School worked with well-known brands around the world as well as writing multiple Dummies books. The School’s authors are authorities in the field of social media management which is a big differentiation to some courses.
Everyone on the Social Media Manager School Team is deeply invested in the success of all the students. We measure OUR success by THEIR success. We hear over and over from our students how much they can see we care. Our course takes you from the more basic levels all the way to some of the more advanced strategies and techniques.
We are also in the private groups commenting and connecting with you. In some courses, you’ll never see the course creator in the forums or groups (or that’s a big ‘upsell’). We intentionally make our course affordable and accessible to people who want to start a new career or learn social media management.
How long does it take to complete the material?
You have one-year access and the ability to renew your membership after one-year, so you can take as long as you want. Most people can complete the training within a few months at their own pace. Members can take the Certificate of Completion Quiz after 4 weeks membership. There are currently over 111 video tutorials ranging from a few minutes to 30-minutes or more. We also offer transcripts and slides so that people can consume the content in different ways. You can do this in your spare time if you have a fulltime job or are in school.
I am relatively new to the social media world, is this course for me?
We have recently revamped this entire course so that the social media newbie will gain the skills to really master each platform.
But be aware that it is a lot of information all at once so feel free to take it slow and don’t feel pressure to understand it all at once. One of the nice things that we have is the Facebook Group where you can go to reinforce your understanding of the lessons and get specific questions answered.
Also, know that we do have a 30-day money back guarantee if you wanted to try it.
Is there an opportunity to start Social Media Manager School – the Home-Study version and then upgrade to Premium?
Yes, you will have the option to upgrade to the Premium version. You can also send a request to email@example.com.
I’m joining Manager School – How soon can I get my business up and running?
It really depends on you and your time. Some people go through the entire School in 4 weeks, others take it slower and process things and work on implementing as they go.
As far as getting your business up and running, that can also vary depending on how much knowledge you have already. Some people are taking on clients right away as they work, starting with the platforms they know best. If you are starting from scratch with this business, it can take a little time to gain your confidence. Make sure you review the Case Studies we have available from some of our past students!
What will I be able to do as a result of your course?
You can truly start your own company and earn a great living as a social media manager or consultant after our training. But there is additional work on your part. You will be in charge of how successful you are. We’ve had so many students who are now running and managing their own companies and businesses. Some have built their businesses fast and are able to earn a full-time income fairly quickly. Others have built their businesses more slowly, starting out part-time and developing into full time – taking 6 months to a year to build. The wonderful thing is that it’s all in your hands and you decide how you want your business to look.
What is the difference between Social Media STRATEGY School and Social Media MANAGER School?
Everything in Strategy School is included in Manager School. The Manager School version (Home-Study and Premium) includes modules on building your own business AS a social media consultant or independent social media manager.
Strategy School is good for someone working in the marketing department of a company and is tasked with doing social media management for them. Please send us an email to request more information firstname.lastname@example.org
How current is the content?
We review and update the School twice a year. If there’s something in the School dated in 2016 or even 2012 – it means that bit has not changed. We also alert you to new developments in social media through the Facebook Group so you know you are always using the latest strategies.
How long do I have access to the material?
You have access to the material and the private Facebook group for 1 full year. You will also get access to any updates we provide to the material during the year you have access. We usually update it twice a year.
We do have a yearly renewal of $397 or$37/month for ongoing updates and continued access to the Facebook group. You will be notified of this option at your one-year anniversary. The Facebook group is your support team and we are in there personally answering questions!
What do other students think about the course?
Our course consistently gets rave reviews. Actually, when we put a post up to ask our students about the course, we couldn’t even fit all the testimonials on our Testimonial Page. And the other cool thing is while we offer a 30-day No Questions Asked Money Back Guarantee – we RARELY get returns because people LOVE the course so much.
And we love our students. Our Facebook Group is one of the most supportive, collaborative, coolest places on the planet in our opinion. We’d love to see you there. Join us!
