Social Media Training Course

social media trainingI've been looking for a good and affordable Social Media Training course for a long time now, because current marketing trends seem to favor those with skills in this area.

It's one of those topics that you feel you should know about, just because you've got a Facebook page and Twitter account!

But somehow it's always remained something of a mystery to me. Then I read about this.

I saw a review of Sue Worthington's Social Media Spider's Web course that she was using and I was impressed enough to buy it. Although I keep promising myself not to buy any more courses until I've fully implemented the last one, this filled such a need for me – and the price was so affordable – that I had to have it.

So last night (or morning!) I was burning the midnight oil until 3:30am – which is late even for me. I don't know about everyone else, but I find it far easier to work at night and sleep in the morning 🙂

Anyway, I've started implementing some of the lessons on this blog and one of my health ones. I'm not giving a link to the health blog because something I did has conflicted with the theme I was using so I've left it looking like a dog's dinner at the moment. (It wasn't anything in the course, I'd been having problems with the theme before I even started on the course.)

I worked on my health blog first, because I'm already making sales in that market-place; just need to ramp them up.

The first few training videos have been about preparing a WordPress blog for social media integration. Some of it I had already done, and some was new to me. I'll confess I found some of it challenging – but nowhere near as challenging as trying to do it alone. And of course you can always pause and rewind the videos if you get stuck.

When I started implementing the same steps in this, my second, blog it was much easier. I have another couple of blogs I need to add the integrations to, which should go even faster. It will be good to have a more uniform approach. It's been rather piece-meal up to now.

One excellent feature of the course is that it includes membership of a normally closed Facebook group where you can get your questions answered. I bet I'll be making plenty of use of that!

Hopefully over the next few days and weeks I'll start to see the benefits, once I've put in the initial set-up stages. So if you're in need of a Social Media Training Course, Sue's is the best value course I have done online for a long time.


(Now – talking of dog's dinners, my son and his dog are coming over for a meal this evening, so off I go to cook!)

I left it too late to plan for a financially secure retirement. Don't make my mistake. Start building an extra income with a part-time (or full-time) business online. Think you don't have time?

Thank you Joy for that lovely review of my product and am so glad that is has helped you already!

Lots more to come – and the Facebook group is starting to take shape and it will be really useful for the members, as you say, to ask questions – I love Facebook groups!

See you in there

Wow, the price is a steal. I just bought this training course from Steve Scott “Affiliate Marketing Without the B.S.” highly recommended by Adrienne Smith and it’s got 10 pdf, it’s like reading a book. Steve Scott is an affiliate marketer who is 6-figure income man, I was really very impress with his experience. Guess, I was so tired about so many different B.S. on the Internet and I can truly relate with him. Plus, I trust Adrienne. She said whenever people need to build 100,000 unique visitors to their blog, she just point them to Steve Scott’s.

Thanks for the recommendation Angela. I’m busy working through Sue’s course at the moment, but I’ll bear Steve in mind. Do keep me updated with how you find it. Joy

Hi Joy,

I’m not familiar with Sue’s course – but it does sound good!

I wish more people would take the trouble to get educated about how to use social media properly!The amateurs who pitch and spam get the rest of us a very bad name and ultimately the social media sites go after us all – even if we ARE operating within good social practises within the spirit of the social media site.Thanks for a great little article!


    Joy Healey - February 11, 2013

    Thanks Robin. I’m enjoying the course and learning a lot. I initially made mistakes out of ignorance, and because I’d seen other people committing bad practices which I assumed were the way to go. I know better now!

Hi Joy
I am sorry it has taken me a few days to get here to this post, thanks so much for the mention and link to my blog that is very kind of you 🙂
I am so glad that you are enjoying the course, and yes there are things that we will struggle with at first but as you say there is the group to help with any questions we have, plus we have each other!
Keep me posted on your progress, have a great day and thanks again for this review of my review LOL

Hi Pauline

No probs – it’s hard keeping up with all these comments LOL.

The course is good and teaching me a lot. I’m find it quite a challenge, but of course I didn’t want to pay even a few $$ for stuff I already knew!

It tends to assume I know more about Facebook than I actually do, but I guess that’s a very difficult balance for Sue to strike.

I’ve joined her monthly group and hope I can keep up with it.
