7 Reasons Why You Should Be Getting a Social Media Marketing Certificate From eCornell

Entreprenista_WebFeature_ECornell_Steph

When I started my undergraduate degree at Cornell, Facebook was still called “The Facebook” and it was only available to students with Ivy League college email addresses. I knew then that the not only would the Internet change forever, but so would marketing.

After graduation, I worked several corporate jobs and eventually started a social media marketing agency on the side. The agency grew so quickly that my business partner, Courtney Spritzer, and I decided to quit our corporate jobs on the same day (May 4th 2012) to pursue Socialfly full-time, and we never looked back! Socialfly soon became one of the leading social media marketing agencies, with close to 300 happy clients that include many of the world’s most well-known brands.

Today, social media marketing is at the heart of every company’s marketing mix. New platforms and digital channels offer marketers exciting avenues to reach customers through value-building content. However, creating said content is much easier said than done. That’s why I was so excited when I was asked to teach the eCornell Social Media Marketing certificate program at Cornell University, together with Professor Robert Kwortnik, Ph.D, a digital marketing maven who also happened to be voted teacher of the year at Cornell University eight times. But don’t just take my word for it, here are 7 more reasons why you should join us and get a Social Media Marketing Certificate from eCornell. Use code SUCCESS30 for 30% off (save over $1,000)!

By the time you complete it, you will have developed a fully integrated social campaign that is ready to launch in the market!

2. It’s based on real world examples from people with real agency experience.

This course leverages real world examples from Socialfly, and the work we do with our clients. We’ll take you right into the boardroom and walk you through the strategies we use to create engaging and impactful campaigns on social media driving.
