Question from Rena G.
I have a small dog walking business that has been word of mouth only up to this point, but I want to learn how to use social media to market my services and to gain new clients. I want to learn how to create effective posts and stories, how to target the right followers, do sponsor posts, and how to use facebook in conjunction with IG. Would this be the right course for me?

Lindsay covers everything in her one-day workshop. I came in knowing ZERO about social media--less than anyone else in the class. I left with a headful of useful information. Highly recommend.

Excellent overview of current social media platforms and where they are best used for different kinds of businesses and services. Our instructor was funny knowledgeable and moved at a quick pace but made everything relevant to the students that she had on hand. The course is very helpful for me and would be for anyone who does not feel super comfortable with all the social media going on around them,
