The scope of each class has shifted as UNMCE recently adjusted hours for various certificates. Because each class is shortened, participants may find it easier to complete the offerings or work them into an otherwise full schedule life.
As a business artist myself, I emphasize simple explanations, a step-by-step way in which to incorporate and market with social media. My purpose in teaching is to share best practices and encourage students to use the medium in ways that serve rather than overwhelm.
The hours spent in these classes will shine a different perspective on social media, allowing participants to connect it to purpose. Once the “why” is identified, the work itself becomes more rewarding. With tools, systems and an overall plan, the time involved is streamlined and the results become more focused.
During each class, students complete practical interactions around questions about Social Media including:
- What posts work?
- How do I expand my audience?
- What is the difference between local attention for a brick and mortar business and marketing a service?
- How is a post on Facebook different from one on Google+?
- Is Pinterest worthwhile?
- Why do I need a different bio on LinkedIn and Instagram? How are bios the same?
In addition to a review of each channel’s advantages and disadvantages, participants experience peer review as they work on practical applications of the materials.
The Advanced class focuses on specific campaign techniques to create return. Students will find the sections complement and build on each other.
Self-Promotion for Artists begins October 14, 2015. You can see the course description (above) or this earlier blog post for detailed information about this class.
