Take BAVC’s Social Media Marketing training and join a revolution born in San Francisco. Twitter marketing, Facebook marketing, LinkedIn - nearly all of these are Bay Area companies, and the social media marketing revolution is nearly a 100% Bay Area invention. No longer is a website just a website - it's a connection point to social media platforms, ranging from Facebook to Twitter to YouTube to Google+ to LinkedIn and beyond. Web marketing and web design must now think in multi-dimensions. How does a website leverage Twitter? If you Tweet what is the point of it? How can you leverage YouTube videos so that they show up high on the Google search and YouTube search pages, and integrate video with a website to inform, entertain, and stay connected to your audience? This class teaches the basic concepts of social media marketing - the t's that must be crossed and i's dotted to make a website "go social" and integrate with relevant social media platforms.
