New and improved for 2020.

We are excited to announce our live training schedule for 2020, which includes brand new, updated content. We’ve listened to all of the feedback and rebuilt the training from the ground-up.
Here are some of the changes:

Website Essentials

We speak strongly about the importance of having a website, so we figured it would be helpful to show you how to do that!

More “How To”

The main thing we learned is that the course was heavy on theory but light on practical, “how to” content. We fixed that.

Video Emphasis

We’re including more content on video. You’ll learn more about creating video and leveraging it for organic and paid social media.
