With social media now an integral part of the marketing landscape, the need for skilled social media managers is growing. Instructors Martin Brossman and Karen Tiede are filling that need with their Certificate of Social Media Management program scheduled to begin at NC State’s McKimmon Center on Monday, January 27.  The 42-hour course includes the option of afternoon or evening programs which run through May 5.  Offered through the University’s Technical Training Solutions (TTS), this CEU course is priced at $495.00. Further information and registration is available on the TTS website, ncsu.edu/ttsor via phone at 919-515-8163.

Addressing the goal of the training, instructor Martin Brossman explained why a small business or organization would choose to engage a social media manager. “It is increasingly important to have a strategic program in place, in a consistent voice across all sites that builds their brand and maintains a positive reputation. Maintaining a dynamic social media marketing program is often beyond the capacity of a business’s staff, which gives rise to part-time or freelance social media management as a cost-effective solution.”

Sharing who the program will benefit, co-developer and instructor Karen Tiede said. “This certificate program is especially valuable for marketing staff who want to deepen their skills, small business owners and startups who are doing their social media in-house, virtual assistants, people who would like to offer social media “done for you” services, and anyone that wants to enhance their skills for a career.”

Students will complete a full social media proposal and program in this class, for either a business or non-profit they wish to support.
