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.
