Harnessing Social Media


Getting started with social media can feel overwhelming for first time entrepreneurs. But you don’t need to rack up millions of followers or have a slick brand campaign to make effective use of these budget-friendly tools.


Social media is one of the BEST ways to connect with fans and potential clients. If you don’t have a presence on the main networks, you’re missing out on an audience that’s ready and willing to connect with your brand.


Using social media for your small business doesn’t have to be scary or expensive. In this course, you will learn simple and effective social media marketing tips so your business can reach new markets, build awareness, support your brand and drive sales.
