Why the Social Media Master Certification™?


1. The Social Media Master Certification™ shows you *exactly* what to do every step of the way. This course is designed to simplify and make it easy to follow all of the best practices for social media marketing. You'll learn how to manage your time using social media, set goals, conduct a social media audit, create personas for businesses, select the right social media platforms for a business's target market, efficiently create content, measure results, launch campaigns, and handle crisis communication. The lessons make each of these complex tasks simple, clear and actionable.

2. My process is tried and true. Not only does this process work for me, but it is the foundation of an internationally best-selling textbook. And I've condensed it down and helped aspiring social media marketers and freelancers start their new career - you can apply every lesson as you go through the course.

3. It is updated in real-time. You never have to wonder:“Is this still true?” or go searching for the latest best practice for social media, ever again. As best practices change - which they always do - the course material is updated. And as a student, you’ll be notified anytime best practices are updated.

4. Everything is results oriented. There is zero fluff in this course. Everything in the Social Media Master Certification™ serves a point and the content is concise. It contains templates I charge clients thousands of dollars for (and you can too!!), so you can hit the ground running.

Frequently Asked Questions


1. Social media changes so fast, will what I learn be "old news" in 6 months?  

Nothing to fear! Once you’re a student, you’ll be notified when best practices change. I am always updating the best practices documents you’ll find in this course, so you NEVER have to wonder if you are following the most recent best practices. As for the foundations and strategy you'll learn, this 8-step process has stood the test of time for nearly a decade.

2. Shouldn't I just hire someone to do it for me?  

I want to encourage YOU to be the voice of your company. No one knows your business better than you. It's important that you understand what good social media strategy looks like and set the tone for how your business engages on social media, even if you hand it off to someone within your organization in the future—you can’t measure what you don’t understand.  

The problem with paying agencies, hiring interns, or trusting an inexperienced social media specialist with your marketing is that your voice won't be present - the posts are often generic, lacking in originality, and they won't be empowered to respond to people the way you do. YOU are the authentic voice of your business—nobody knows it better than you.  

3. How much money can I make doing freelance social media marketing?

A LOT! Freelance social media marketing is extremely lucrative. Here are the average rates for freelance social media:  

  • Social Media Audit (which I give you the template for!): $4,000-$6,000 per audit
  • Facebook: $1,000-$2,500/month  
  • Twitter : $2,000-$4,000/month  
  • Additional channel: $1,000 per channel/month  


4. Are there a lot of full-time job opportunities?

Absolutely! The job “Social Media Manager” ranked number 4 on the list of Top Jobs in 2021 by Forbes. The demand is increasing for skilled social media managers for businesses.

5. Will it work for me?  

Social media marketing can be learned. It just requires knowing the RIGHT information and a little practice. I’ve helped people from every path imaginable learn how to do social media marketing professionally. This material is designed to take the guesswork out of how to do EVERY aspect of organic social media marketing.

6. Do I need a college degree in marketing?

Absolutely not! Social media marketing is SO different than traditional marketing. It’s about educating and inspiring audiences, building relationships, and two-way communication. And you’ll learn any marketing fundamentals you need IN THE COURSE.

In addition, this certification will provide you with added credentials for your resume and LinkedIn profile.

7. Life is super busy, should I wait for the right time?  

This course is designed to SAVE you time. There is truly no *faster* way to learn how to effectively do every aspect of social media marketing. This course was built with YOUR time in mind. Every video is concise and packed with all the information you need, every workbook is designed for you to learn exactly what you need to know, so you can develop your skills as quickly or as slowly as your busy life allows.  

8. I already have debt, shouldn't I wait until those are paid off?  

No one ever has money just laying around, do they? The return on your investment is too great to miss out on! As a freelancer, you can make back your investment in this course (x 3!) with just ONE client who wants a social media audit. And if you're looking for a new full-time job, this certificate will add immediate credibility to your resume that could help you land your new job in less than three months.

Also, I can't guarantee the Social Media Master Certification™ will always be priced this low. I actually priced this course lower than recommendations from previous students - meaning, the price point it's at now won't be around forever.  

9. What if I'm not creative enough?  

Creativity is like a muscle, you have to exercise it for it to get stronger. In this course, you’ll learn the exact formula for creating engaging social media content. You can learn to be more creative, I promise.
