Hay There Social Media (the “Company”) is an established, supportive team of consummate professional women with a proven track record for success in marketing and managing social media campaigns for service-oriented and product-based businesses.
Social Media Training Program
The Company is excited to introduce you to its Social Media Training Program, a 6-week, 12-session live Zoom format, designed to provide women with the skills and training needed to successfully operate their own social media freelance business. Participants are trained to deliver social media marketing services to small to medium-sized business clients. Throughout the program, trainees learn how to run their own social media marketing business, from defining the services they want to offer, to learning how to deliver them and how to manage their clients. The Company provides templates, prospecting documents, and technical instruction. The Company teaches various processes, professional approaches, and best practices that it has successfully developed and implemented over the past decade. The Company also offers tips and wisdom acquired during its years of providing similar services. The Company’s goal is to provide program participants with the necessary tools to allow them, upon completion of the program, to obtain and maintain their own clients while working independently in a flexible environment, setting their own hours, and thereby ensuring a work life balance customized to fit individual and family needs and commitments.
Attendance at every training session is highly encouraged to achieve the maximum benefit for all cohort participants. It is important that all members of the cohort remain at the same learning stage. In the event attendance at a session is not feasible for any reason, we request advance notification and expect participants to make-up and learn the information covered in the missed session prior to the next scheduled training session. No refunds are given for missed sessions.
