Previously known as Social Media Boot Camp, this course has been renamed to reflect the holistic approach to achieving your business objectives. Social media is a power tool in your tool shed, but you can’t build a house with it alone and without a blueprint.
This seven-session course provides you with the know-how and tools to set your results-oriented business strategy in motion. Each session features a learning component with theory and best practices, exercises to accomplish key steps in crafting strategy and executing tactics, and discussion of your situation. Assignments between each session enable you to make significant progress to strengthen your business identity, digital footprint, audience outreach and engagement.
By the end of the course, you will have gained clarity on the running of your business, elevated your own confidence, and taken your business to the next level through:
- a solid research-backed plan to grow your business
- a clear definitive brand identity and story
- a discipline to track your progress
- a foundation to position yourself as a thought leader
- a method to manage social media in <30 minutes a day
- increased visibility through a six-month Marketplace listing and “Find a Pro” Directory profile on MindstreamConnect.com
Format: Seven weekly live video meetings on Zoom plus homework assignments. Private sessions run 60 minutes; Semi-Privates run 75 minutes; and Group sessions may 90+ minutes, depending on the number of participants. Homework generally takes one hour.
Personalised Coaching: All participants get tailored coaching within the format chosen. Group participants get one additional hour of private time with the instructor; that hour can be split into two 30-minute catch-ups for use during the course or within 90 days after it ends.
Equipment: Participants must have a laptop or desktop computer to use during the class; a mobile phone or tablet does not offer the same functionality or viewing experience. All Zoom sessions are recorded in case anyone misses one and needs to catch the replay.
Readiness: Participants must be established as professionals (earning money for their products and/or services), have a website and be active on social media. Today’s mass medium is the Internet, and Google is the gatekeeper. This course is not right for someone who is not using digital means to connect with their target audience. This course teaches a holistic approach of online and offline methods.
Timing: The Group course runs once a quarter. Privates and Semi-Privates are available to start at any time. When booking the course, please select which format you prefer and the ideal timing. We will follow up with you to confirm a suitable start date and weekly schedule.
Investment: Course pricing begins at £999 per person for the Group format (3-6 participants). Semi-Private format is £1,850 each for two people. Private one-on-one course is £3,900.
