“Finding time to get to the training is difficult for me, but it is really great that they’re recorded so I can go back as I need things. There’s a library for me to access,” said Society member Kelly Mirabella.
I’m a social media marketing novice. Will the Society sessions be way over my head?
Everyone’s a novice when everything’s changing.
The old ways don’t work, so in some regards we’re all restarting the adventure, over and over.
While Society instructors are experts, they work hard to answer your questions. We typically commit 30 minutes in each workshop to your questions.
We staff our forums and Facebook group to ensure no question goes unanswered. We also have a very supportive community of members who are glad to answer questions.
So while the Society is ideal for the advanced marketer whose job is heavily focused on social media, even a beginner will find value.
“I’ve been able to learn the platforms I didn’t previously know and become adept at them. I recommend the Society to anyone, whether they’re a beginner or an expert, because there’s something for everybody,” said Lori Friedrich.
What will I receive every month as a member?
When you join the Social Media Marketing Society you’ll have access to three original training workshops every month. You’ll also have access to the recordings of ALL prior training workshops as long as you keep your membership active. You’ll gain exclusive access to our forums and live hangouts where you can connect with peers and get your social media marketing questions answered.
Society members who attend Social Media Marketing World (our annual conference in San Diego) will enjoy special conference benefits.
How do I watch the live workshops?
You simply log in to our member website and follow the instructions we provide. You’ll be able to view the live training workshops on a computer or mobile device.
I can’t attend all the live training workshops. Will I get a recording?
Yes. For each training workshop we’ll provide a recording you can watch online via your computer, tablet or mobile device, so you won’t miss a thing. If you have other commitments (like a day job) or if a workshop occurs at an inconvenient time, no need to worry. Even if you attend a live training workshop, you’ll still get the recording. You’ll have access to recordings for as long as you maintain your membership.
How do I watch the playbacks of training workshops?
You simply log in to our membership website. There you’ll find streaming videos you can play back from a desktop or mobile device. Downloadable transcripts, slide decks and audio files are also provided.
Will there be transcripts?
Yes. We’ll provide transcripts of each workshop as Adobe PDF files. This will allow you to study and scan the content of each training.
How can I ask questions?
Two ways. First, during the live training workshops, you’ll be able to submit questions during the Q&A portion of each workshop. If you are selected we will bring you on live to ask your question. Second, you can post questions in our private forums to get answers from your peers and the experts.
Where is the event located?
At your home or office. Since this is online training, there is no physical venue and no travel expenses. And you’ll get the recordings, so if you miss a live workshop, no worries.
How long are the training workshops?
Each of the workshops is 60 to 90 minutes in duration.
What if I still have questions?
