    I really enjoyed this class for leisure learning. I knew a lot of what was discussed, but this is definitely a great class for beginners or those who aren't so social media savvy. The teacher was also great! He definitely gave us a few laughs while also giving us a relaxed and fun environment.

Social media marketing uses various social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, and websites to promote products, services, events, or ideas. Social media marketing helps businesses and brands connect with their target audience more directly and even interact with them to get helpful feedback. The content might include narrative videos, influencers talking about their experience with a particular brand or product, graphics, animation, interviews, email newsletters, first-hand experiences from customers, and music. Social media trends change fast and social media marketing has to evolve to keep up constantly. Data analytics from social media platforms help marketers understand their audience by tracking engagement, and demographics and identifying new ways to engage.

Social media marketing is essential for every business. Having an online presence enhances sales and helps to identify brands. Social media is where most people look for information, whether it’s the latest product, the hours of operation or to find new content. Most marketing now involves social media marketing. Understanding what drives an audience to a website or how they engage with content will help create better content and brand visibility. Having social media marketing on your resume will enhance your prospects in many professions whether it's graphic design, copywriting, content writing, sales, management, or communications.
