TIME POOR? You don't need to do this course if you are happy flitting around the 'net, watching random videos, and reading blogs etc. But short on time? Then that's what this course is about.
LOW PRICE I priced it low currently - you can pay more for my real life classes if you like :P - to make it accessible to everyone in the Not For Profit sector, in every country, in every job and for every reason. Once you join, you have lifetime access.
MENTORING If you feel you would like to improve your Facebook Page, have any questions, need some help, come right on in. The Q&A forum has some good questions from students in it - please add your's - and I'm adding videos based on their priorities. Please join in and don't forget to post your links to your social media channels in the Discussion area for feedback.


I've managed the strategy, campaigns and Facebook Pages and forums and blogs of TV shows such as JUNIOR MASTERCHEF, IDOL and BIG BROTHER. I have run workshops and consulted to Not for Profits ranging from UNHCR to health to LGBT. While some videos across courses are the same (eg how to sign up) I specifically adapted my courses to bring social media managers for Not for Profits like you up to speed efficiently and cost effectively. Look out for my other courses!

Each lecture takes you through a step of the framework with theory, a case study and homework based around a pitch document (brief). This course is invaluable for a public relations or communications professional looking to develop and implement strategies rather than just "run a Facebook Page", those re-entering the workforce or repositioning to take on more social media responsibilities as part of their usual role. Small businesses will find the overall strategy useful to framework their current Facebook and Twitter activities.
