Allowing me not only to start my own business but to also save my home

SMMS and all the knowledge and interactions I have here may end up allowing me not only to start my own business but to also save my home (quite literally, as I’ve been unemployed for two years). So, whether or not I can make it so that I can become financially stable, the lessons I’ve learned from this program extend beyond SM management and I think I’m a better person for being here. Thank you, everyone!


Worth its weight in gold

I’m currently in an entrepreneur course and I’m working with my first (major paying client) and the knowledge I have from this class is worth its weight in gold, people are very impressed with my knowledge, marketing strategies and pricing strategy! 


A tremendous help

The SMMS Facebook Group is one of the most valuable parts of the entire package! To be able to get quick and knowledgeable answers from the experts and from colleagues who are trying to accomplish similar goals has been a tremendous help.

Take your business from a side hustle to the “real deal”

Ronda VanBuren

Social Media Strategy School has helped my business grow. I can always rely on Andrea and Phyllis to keep us updated on what is happening in the social world and count on the members of the school (including Andrea and Phyllis) to help with questions, encouragement or lend a hand.  If you want to take your business from a side hustle to the “real deal” join the school today

This is worth 100x the price

Stephen Hart

I can’t wait!  I have to say you both are giving this course away waay too cheap. This is worth 100x the price. I’m happy that you allowed me in where I in fact could afford it and I just want you both to know I’m willing to pay you more in any format of testimonials you need. Smms is the best thing ever!!!!

I have taken a number of courses before this that didn’t teach me anywhere near this much

I just want to reiterate how much you both are doing for the social media world. There are so many people out there professing to know everything and are really hurting the profession when they screw up. This course teaches so much to help make us real professionals. I have taken a number of courses before this that didn’t teach me anywhere near this much and for once I feel I will really be able to differentiate myself as a real professional. For those of you who are just starting out in this hectic, crazy world of digital marketing, you were really fortunate to get this course as a starting point.

By far was the best course I’ve taken!

I’ve taken a couple of social media manager courses and this one by far was the best one I’ve taken! It’s also the one that I’ve learned the most and got the details on what it’s like to be a social media manager. Thank you to you and Phyllis for such a great course!

One of the best decisions I’ve made this year

First I would like to say how happy I am that I joined SMMS! It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made this year. Although I only just finished module 2, I’ve learned so much already. Thank you, Andrea and Phyllis! 


Never felt more comfortable jumping off a cliff!

I came to the program with lots of social media savvy and little business knowledge on how to run a social media business – for profit! Their program was well structured, contained a lot more content than I was expecting and had lots of step-by-step guides on what to do. Best of all they are active members of their community and offer up lots of advice, suggestions and support. The private Facebook SMMS Community is also positive, engaging and supportive. Never felt more comfortable jumping off a cliff!

By far the best investment I made in my business

Kelly Ward

Social Media Manager School was by far the best investment I made in my business this past year. Taught by social media experts, Andrea Vahl and Phyllis Khare, this is an extensive course that includes videos, templates, tip sheets, and articles to help you with your social media business. The private Facebook group has also been an invaluable resource. Social Media Manager School is must-have training for anyone looking to start a social media business or to grow their current business.

Provide Strategic Direction

Anyone in public relations, marketing and corporate communications who need to update their skills and provide strategic direction to their clients, their coworker’s and their bosses, needs this course.

I didn’t realize it would help shape my entire business

When I found Social Media Marketing School, I didn’t realize it would help shape my entire business. I learned about platforms that I never thought I’d be able to understand, let alone advise clients on. Now, I’m a strategist for my dream clients and it’s all because of the attention to detail and the consistently updated lessons in SMMS! Each social platform is taught in language I can understand and immediately put to use! Everything is well organized and searchable…for those times I’m looking for something specific. I can’t say enough about the quality of this school, the knowledge of the instructors – Phyllis and Andrea – and community that comes along with it. Priceless! I’ve taken several online courses, and this one is absolutely the best!

Sarah E Summers

The learning goes on and on!

Phyllis and Andrea’s Social Media Manager School came along at just the right moment with just the right information for me! I am so grateful to have the knowledge and skills I’ve gained from this course. The Facebook group is priceless, too, with a fantastic community sharing their social media questions and tips, so the learning goes on and on!
