Let's Get Social Review
Let's Get Social is an in-depth online course that will teach you how to create a 21st century full-time or part-time career as a social media manager. This is not a "teaser" course that provides a little knowledge up front and then asks you to sign up for more classes at additional cost in order to get the full picture. Let's Get Social provides hours of video and audio instruction (the equivalent of a 4-credit college course), PDF Manuals, Worksheets, Checklists, and more that teaches everything you need to know to begin a lucrative career as an in-house Social Media Manager or start your own Social Media Management business.
We all know that the power of social media — including blogs, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and others is expanding exponentially, leaving traditional print and broadcast advertising in the dust. No longer centered on Madison Avenue N.Y. as in the "Mad Men" days of the 1960s, online marketers and ad agencies are spread across the country and around the world, utilizing social media skills from their desktop computers, laptops, and mobile devices. Let's Get Social lets you join this marketing revolution and custom-tailor your own social media career.
Facebook Graph Search Tool created new jobs for people who want to work from home. While the Facebook Graph Search tool will currently be available to a limited amount of users, the announcement has launched an even greater need for social media managers who work from home.”

Let's Get Social is a complete turn-key course by Ryan Deiss, a popular online marketing expert, and Kate Buck, Jr., an entrepreneur with her own successful and expanding social media company. They not only share the knowledge that they've gained through extensive experience, but save you valuable time by helping you avoid the trial-and-error mistakes they made. Social Media Insiders Club Members chat weekly with Kate and other media managers, get great updates from Kate, and access an audio archive of previous weekly calls. In order to help move you beyond the beginner mode, Kate provides valuable graphics, forms, checklists and client contracts that she painstakingly developed for her own business.
Ryan and Kate do more than just share their knowledge. This course shows you that social media promotion is a wide-open, 21st-century-and-beyond business. There is a growing demand for new Social Media Managers to assist businesses that have not yet discovered the full power of social media, as well as those that want to join the conversation, but have no idea of how to begin. Potential clients are everywhere you look — making it the most in-demand job in the world.
Kate started her business as a part-time earning tool, but it grew quickly as she gained clients and hired employees to handle her over-flow. You can use your new skills to begin a part-time job to supplement your income OR you can multiply your earnings by taking it on as full-time career, OR take it to the next level by attracting your own clientele and bringing assistants on board. So, whether you would like to work for one of the many firms looking to hire part- and full-time social media managers, or start your own lucrative social media management firm — as Kate did — Let's Get Social is the course you need to get started in this exciting and expanding new field.
