    Course: Social Media Marketing Seminar

    Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, YouTube... companies are using these "tools" to communicate with their customers, and you can too. Learn about social media and how to use it to enhance your business or career and build relationships in ways you never have before. Whether you are promoting your company, your personal business, your next career move or a local event, it pays to understand the value of online social networking sites.

    With DePaul’s Social Media Marketing Seminar, you will gain a better understanding of the various benefits of social media, including communication, collaboration, multi-media and entertainment. You will also gain insight into the low cost and high yield associated with social media.

    This one-day seminar can be taken as a stand-alone course and also fulfills one of the core requirements in DePaul’s Integrated Marketing Communications Certificate Program.
