From the Instructor:
Welcome to Social Media Marketing! This course explores why social media is so important and how to use it effectively. It provides a solid understanding of the power of social media to help any business better promote itself. Moreover, the course can help students use social media to achieve their own personal goals and to advance their careers. Therefore, this class can be quite useful to all students not just business majors. We cover the 'why and how' of using platforms like Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and others to achieve positive personal and business results. I hope you will join me this fall. It should be quite a ride! ~Alexa Maros, M.B.A.
