Social Media Marketing for Business Courses at Camosun College in Victoria BC – Courses for 2017
I teach two continuing education courses at Camosun College – “Social Media for Newbies” and “Introduction to Social Media Marketing”. These courses are perfect if you’re brand new to social media marketing for business and want to get started! These could also be a fit, if you have been using social media for your business, but you’re feeling a bit lost, and not getting any results. Social media can be a HUGE waste of time if you are spending time on the wrong things. When you’re learning about how it works, it can be extremely overwhelming. Taking a course can help streamline your learning, help you overcome the fear, and arm you with information & tools you can use to BE STRATEGIC and SAVE TIME!

Get LinkedIn or Get Left Behind – Intermediate
LinkedIn is the respected professional social network – even those who “don’t do social media” use LinkedIn. It’s a great way to stay in touch with, and on the radar of your professional connections. Every professional, business owner, job searcher, employer & student should consider having a profile or company page. If you’re new to LinkedIn, or have a profile that you never use – this is the right workshop for you!
You’ll leave this workshop feeling confident about how to set up your profile to put your best professional foot forward and impress your connections. You’ll know how to decide who to connect with, how to use best practices for etiquette on LinkedIn, and how to build credibility and relationships that will grow your professional network and connect you with opportunity.
No new dates currently scheduled – please let us know if you’re interested in this workshop!
