Heads up: Only the nerds are using ClickMinded.

Let me tell you something that you definitely already know.

Most companies suck at social media.

They talk about how great it is to have thousands or millions of followers and other metrics that don’t matter.

In reality, this is how most social posts by companies perform:

You could probably post a picture of your dinner on Instagram or a passive-aggressive post about your ex and get more engagement than that.

And I’m not cherry-picking: go to your favorite timeline or feed and see how the companies you follow do on social media.

Given how most professional marketers and large companies do social media, it’s no surprise that you’ve probably experienced this:

  • You’ve looked for the “best times” to post on social media
  • You’ve been careful to post the “right amount” of times per day
  • You’ve subscribed to a fancy scheduling tool
  • You’ve worried about using the “right” hashtags on your posts
  • You’ve made sure you’re using an image on all your posts
  • You’ve added links to a blog post or landing page on your site and written “link in bio” more than once

And still…you’ve probably gotten ZERO results for you or your clients’ business.

The reason for this is obvious if you just think about it for a second:

Most companies that get into social media marketing fail miserably because they are “companies on social media.”

Sounds like a catch-22, I get it—but hear me out.

  • If you go to Twitter, you’ll see people tweeting their thoughts, sharing an interesting article, having conversations, sharing jokes or memes…then you’ll see a company tweeting a stock photo, with a hashtag, and a link to sign up.
  • If you go to Instagram, you’ll see people posting inspiring photos of their travels, sharing exciting activities they’ve done, or videos with the people they love…then you’ll see a company posting a stock photo, with a hashtag, and a link to sign up.
  • If you go to Tinder…I don’t know what you’ll find—never been there. That was a different guy.

You get my point.

Most companies fail at social media because they fail to use the channels like they are meant to be used.

Instead they just try to spray and pray, hoping people will magically go from social to their site and become customers.

If you want your company to be successful in social media, you need to avoid being “a company on social media” and strive to have one of the best accounts on that social channel—period.

That’s EXACTLY what companies like Airbnb have accomplished:

One thing’s for sure: You’re not going to get there by posting the same message+hashtag+image+link combo on every social media channel.

What if you learned how to create and execute a social media strategy like Airbnb?

  • Maybe your agency would be able to provide 10x better results to clients than any other agency offering social media services
  • Maybe your company’s social media accounts could generate a massive of new and highly-engaged leads every month
  • Maybe you could get a promotion or a new job to manage a company’s entire social media presence

That’s exactly what the ClickMinded Social Media Framework will help you accomplish…

…and we’ve brought a world-class social media expert to teach you: Jasmine Atherton, Head of Social at Airbnb.

Jasmine is a total boss:

  1. She has run massive campaigns on social, including Super Bowl campaigns.
  2. Her team has won several Canne Lions for social media campaigns.
  3. Under her leadership, Airbnb has won “Best Brand on Instagram” several years in a row.

But you don’t have to take our word for it:

Eric Toda
Gap Inc.
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.
Pearl Tam

I’ve seen a lot of talent in the industry but Jasmine is spearheading her way through the digital space. She always brings great value and delivers thoroughly with such passion!

Be sure to follow her closely because she drops golden nuggets along the way.

The ClickMinded Social Media Marketing Training teaches you EXACTLY how to run powerful, metric-driven social marketing campaigns.

This is just a taste of what you’ll get in the course.

How social media fits into your business

  • The THREE components of social media that will help your business grow in a measurable 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.

Picking the right social media channels to hit your goals

  • 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 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)
  • A social media channel cheatsheet that will give you a framework to decide in which channels to participate and how

Monitoring: the most overlooked aspect of social media marketing

  • 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)

Creating and distributing world-class social media content

  • 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 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 like 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?)

Converting social media audiences into leads and customers

  • 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 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)

[Walkthrough] Setting up your social media strategy from scratch

  • 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)
  • Get an exclusive view of how Airbnb’s social content planning system works (it’s super rare to get this kind of access to an award-winning brand’s process!)

Questions You Probably Have

Here are the answers to the questions we get every single day.

ClickMinded is a digital marketing training platform. It has 7 courses on digital marketing, as well as a collection of digital marketing templates called the SOP library.

It's designed to teach you how to massively increase traffic and sales for any website as quickly as possible.

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.

None. You can learn everything in these courses through other people’s blog posts, forums and your own trial-and-error.

There is absolutely nothing secret here and you can absolutely teach yourself digital marketing and learn it all on your own.

ClickMinded is designed to make learning digital marketing easier and faster.

We've made it as easy and fast to learn as possible, but we won’t be teaching you anything you can’t learn on your own with enough time invested.

All courses includes a 14-day money back guarantee.

All courses includes unlimited lifetime access and free updates for life.

Yes. Anytime we push out an update to a course, that's included. For free. You'll get that automatically. Forever.

Actually, this happens all the time. That's why each course includes unlimited lifetime access, and free updates for life. If there is a change, you'll hear about it. And it's included in the course for free.

Each course includes a certification. Finish the course, pass the final exam and you'll earn your certification. Some of our most popular ones are the ClickMinded digital marketing certification, the ClickMinded social media certification and the ClickMinded SEO certification.

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.
