Social Media Charm School is not for people waiting for a knight in shining armor to save them. Social Media Charm School is for people who are making something worth talking about it. It’s for people who want to make their part-time goal their full-time life. It’s for people doing something worth telling people about. It’s for people who make great films or embark on any type of creative entrepreneur path. In Social Media Charm School, you’ll learn how to establish a social media presence, how to gather an authentic following, what it takes to build goodwill, and why a little online flirting can go a long way. Also included: find out how to pick the right social media platforms for you, why you shouldn’t buy followers, and more.
