What our users are saying

Everything is really good. Particularly the tips/advice given, the how-to URL recommendations, the tools given to organise social media management, and that each module is short and to the point. Great for when you have a busy schedule and you don’t want to be going through a course for months on end.

I am just starting with my business venture and I know the importance of using social media. Just going through this course is really helping me with different things I never thought of before. The tools given, like the social media audit, among others, are easy to follow which is awesome. When I did some competitor research to see what other businesses are doing in their social media audits, these are overly confusing, and as someone new to this, this is overwhelming. However, with this course from ClickMinded, they have simplified it in a way that it is more easily understood, and made tools into mediums that are simple to follow and organise. These have put me at ease which is great!

Finally, what is also great are real examples using a big company like AirBnB. It’s more than just theory, the course gives you real-life examples. I'm looking forward to putting this into action. When I first came across ClickMinded I wasn’t sure about buying the ClickMinded Social Media Training. I went for it because I knew social media was going to be a major stumbling block for me and this provided a solution to that. I am so glad I went for this! Because I can already see that this course is highly valuable; The tools given will help me organise myself in a way that I did not think of. If I did not buy this course, I can already see the mistakes I would have made.

This will help me to fast track what I should be doing for greater success. I recommend this course to anyone, particularly those who are new to getting their business on social media, and/or are struggling with their social media, and want to grow with social media.

In an age of ‘social media experts’ it's hard to know who is actually knowledgeable, who to go to, and who to actually trust. Jasmine is, through and through, an expert in everything social.

Her accolades speak for itself, but it's her willingness to share knowledge that puts her on another level. Learn everything you can from her.

Here's what's included in the course.

The ClickMinded Social Media Marketing Training teaches you EXACTLY how to run powerful, metric-driven social marketing campaigns.
  • The THREE components of social media that will help your business grow in a meaningful way (and not just accumulate likes, retweets, favorites, etc)
  • Debunking the myth of social media management: it’s not easy and the fact that you have a personal Facebook or Twitter account doesn’t mean you’ve got it figured out.
  • The decision process to follow when picking whether to participate in a social channel or not (hence avoiding the hype of new social channels popping up every week)
  • Discover how users’ attitude and mentality changes completely depending on the social channel (and how this can lead to drastically different strategies from channel to channel)
  • Why Facebook is the go-to channel for companies of all sizes and how its algorithm makes it a great place for brands to share content
  • What differentiates Twitter from every other social channel and how that will determine the way you approach it
  • The ONE critical success factor for companies participating on Instagram (plus, why your profile is more important than in any other social channel)
  • How Snapchat can enable you to create one-to-one connections with users (as opposed to other channels where interactions are “one-to-many”)
  • What is “life-stage content” and why it’s the best performing type of content for Pinterest (plus, how to be successful in Pinterest by approaching it as a search engine instead of as a social channel)
  • Why you don’t necessarily need to have your own channel to participate in YouTube (this is actually how many brands choose to approach this channel)
  • How Airbnb used LinkedIn in the past vs how it’s changed its strategy to reach business travelers (plus, why it’s perhaps the least robust channel for marketers and advertisers)
  • social media channel cheatsheet that will give you a framework to decide on which channels to participate and how
  • 12 tactics to help you start growing your social media audiences from scratch
  • The TWO reasons why you need to monitor social media even if you’re not actively participating in it (seriously, this is the bare minimum that you have to do and most companies don’t do it properly)
  • Why “going viral” isn’t always good news for your company (hint: when something goes wrong) and how to prevent it from spiraling out of control
  • How monitoring can enable you to create “whoa moments” for your customers and take engagement to a whole new level
  • A step-by-step walkthrough to automate monitoring by using social listening tools (including some advanced techniques to get the exact results you care about)
  • The EXACT workflow to streamline management of ALL your social media mentions (and the best process to address each type of mention)
  • What most people get wrong when they think about competition in social media (this is why you should probably not worry too much about other brands or companies)
  • A case study of how Airbnb uses different content formats (animation, photography, video, long-form content, and albums) to adapt the message of a single campaign to maximize the impact of a single campaign across several channels
  • What constitutes “content excellence” with video, imagery, and copy for companies like Airbnb (social media users are RUTHLESS and will only give you a few seconds of their attention)
  • Why you can’t just “do social media” and expect to get results (you should only participate in a social channel if you can do it as a REAL user would)
  • The win-win situation that will allow your company to publish high-quality compelling content without actually producing any of it
  • How to think like a social media user in the attention-deficit era and the FOUR tactics you can use create content that people actually consume
  • Our favorite tools for writing compelling social media copy, finding affordable (or free) high-quality photography, and designing visuals (these will make your life 10x easier)
  • The THREE methods you can use to maximize the reach of your social media content (including which one to use if you have a small social following)
  • Our go-to tools to simplify and streamline the distribution of your content across all your social media channels (there’s a couple you probably haven’t heard about)
  • A simple framework to measure, track, and report engagement across all of your different social media channels (this solves a BIG problem for social media managers: how do you compare a Twitter like to a Facebook comment?)
  • 4 types of content campaigns to boost your sales and revenue (and work for any company and industry)
  • How to define goals and metrics for each social channel and stage of the funnel (plus, learn how Airbnb developed their own benchmarks to analyze the success of their social media campaigns)
  • Analyzing organic vs paid engagement and how each of them can help you hit different goals
  • Why having thousands or millions of followers in social media doesn’t really matter and what you should do (instead of just trying to get more followers)
  • The TWO strategies you can use to attract social audiences to your website and convert them into leads and customers (there’s more to it than just “link in bio”)
  • Using UTM parameters to track your social campaigns on Google Analytics (and beyond going beyond social metrics)
  • The step-by-step process to perform a comprehensive audit of the social media competitive landscape for any company or industry (you HAVE to do this before you can even think of your social media strategy)
  • The exact workflow you can implement to streamline content planning, creation, and scheduling (most people get this wrong and think they can just get a scheduling tool and be done with it)

Entry level to intermediate comprehension.

ClickMinded was initially designed to onboard newly hired designers, data scientists and engineers working on search engine optimization at PayPal and Airbnb.

It's since evolved into a more comprehensive digital marketing training platform. While our focus is on startups and individuals with an entry level to intermediate understanding of online marketing, even experts will find most of the content extremely helpful.

The courses and step-by-step walkthroughs are split up in a way so that the introductory content can be easily skipped if needed.

Each course ranges from 3-6 hours long, and they've been cut up into small, digestible and organized segments, so that you can easily refer back to specific lessons when you have questions.

Extremely actionable. After having our friends and colleagues take all 7 courses, the most frequent comment we heard was “This is great… but how do I get started?”.

That’s why we added comprehensive campaign walkthroughs throughout each of the courses. It’s pure video screen capture, and contains the exact strategies that we use every day.

Yes. The platform is 100% responsive and works on all mobile and tablet devices.

Probably. Most ClickMinded students expense it for work or for their business.

No accountants or CPAs were involved in the making of this advice, so be sure to check with yours first.

With that said, if you're trying to increase website traffic and sales for your business, this is probably a relevant business expense.

You can attend at any time.

ClickMinded is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. The course includes unlimited lifetime access as well. Once you enroll, you'll never lose access to the content, and can refer back to it as much as you'd like.

No.

Certification is not required for this industry. The best people in the game don't have certifications, and for many people, you simply don't need one.

With that said, some people like to show future recruiters and clients that they (or their staff) have taken and earned a certification.

We've also received feedback that many employers won't expense the training without some type of evidence the student has completed the course. We got so many requests from our users for this, that we decided to add it.

Sweet. Let us know how it goes.
