Have Questions about Social Media Manager School?
We have answers…
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. Both Phyllis and I have worked with well-known brands around the world as well as writing multiple Dummies books. So we are authorities in the field of social media management which is a big differentiation to some courses.
We are deeply invested in the success of our 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.
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 have 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 full time incomes 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.
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. Both Strategy School and Manager School members can take the Certificate of Completion Quiz after 4 weeks membership. The total hours of video course is somewhere around 25 -30 hours of training. 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 fullfull-time.
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.
How current is the content?
We update the course twice a year when we open the doors, that’s why we keep them closed during the other parts of the year since everything changes so quickly.
We also alert you to new developments in social media through the Facebook Group. So you know you are always using the latest strategies.
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.
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!
I’m joining Manager School – How long does it take to get through the material? How soon can I get my business up and running?
It is work at your own pace – the Business Building Modules roll out one a week for 4 weeks but there is lots of other material ready to go so you can get started as soon as you sign up. There is about 9 hours of video for the Business Building Modules and 14 hours for the Social Media Lessons and Strategies (where all the social media platforms are covered) plus all the downloads.
It really depends on you and your time. Some people go through all the material 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 (if you are on the Manager track), 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 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!
