Why learn about social media marketing?

The cost to start social media platforms is free. The hidden cost is the time it takes to really get it working well – which makes it imperative you understand the principles for long-term success, how successful players are using it, and how you should be spending your own precious time.

Those successful businesses have used social media to:
- listen to what’s happening in the market
- build relationships with customers
- focus attention on their brand’s strengths
- position as a leader in their field and build brand value
- get themselves higher in google searches
- generate leads and opportunities


Who should do the course?

This one day course is for people who want to learn quickly how they can use social media more effectively. Whether you run a small business, you work in a corporate environment, or you’re promoting a charity or creative project. It includes people with marketing, PR and advertising responsibilities.

The course is suited to people who are beginner to intermediate level e.g. we often get participants who have a personal Facebook profile but are now looking to use Facebook for business.


Who is teaching the course?

Phil Stubbs has 10+ years experience working in advertising and the media, 10+ years teaching at universities, and 7+ years campaigning online.

He has a solid foundation in marketing having worked in leading advertising agencies in Sydney including The Campaign Palace. He’s worked on campaigns for clients with large budgets – from Rydges Hotels to Oil of Ulay through to small business, creative startups, charities and causes.
