Our social media marketing course equips you with the skills you need to help you use popular social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, and many more, as powerful marketing tools.

Many businesses and individuals settle for a token Twitter feed and Facebook page, without understanding what to do with them. They don’t realise that they could use social media to dramatically enhance their reputations, expose themselves to potential clients and customers, and, most importantly, increase their income.

From freelancers to multimillion-pound corporations, an effective online presence can mean the difference between business success and failure.

Our online social media marketing course takes you through the essential features of building a web presence that puts you ahead of the competition. We offer full guidance throughout, as well as feedback on a range of assignments designed to help you put the theory into practice.

As well as helping many individuals become successful social media marketers, this course is also used to train staff from some well-respected organisations, including South Wales Police, Bioversity International, and Oil & Gas UK.Accreditation logos

We have an excellent track record in helping our social media marketing learners find work and set up as successful freelancers.
