Digital Marketing & Social Media Essentials - Melbourne

Course Prerequisite
A professional working background.

This course assumes no prior social media knowledge in a business context, but it is NOT for beginners. 

The program will suit people with a sound business, marketing, sales or communications background who need a digital top-up. For instance, you have been given expanded digital responsibilities as part of your work role, are returning to the workforce after an extended leave, embarking on a career move, bringing digital responsibilities in-house after using an agency, or are about to set up your own business.

We keep class sizes small – 15 participants, max – so that there’s always time for questions or clarification. For HR or resume purposes, certification of attendance is provided. 

Social Media & Digital Fast-Track is a stand-alone course but also serves as a pathway to our Social Media Advanced course which usually runs the following day. If you’re looking for an intensive two-day learning experience, then book both courses. Not only will you become a digital-dynamo overnight (literally), but you’ll access a 20% discount for each course.

When ready, book online and pay with Visa, MasterCard or Amex, or opt to pay via invoice -  emailed to you automatically at the completion of your booking.

Who it's for

Perfect if you're looking for a course with ready-to-go business application.

Who it's not for

Not recommended if you lack a professional context to apply the concepts.


The social media and digital platforms covered within this course include:

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn (Company Pages)
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • The Website
  • Google Analytics

Across these platforms the following themes are explored:

  • Content requirements. Hint: more quality, less quantity. 
  • Is a social media budget allocation necessary? Most probably, yes.
  • That latest social media algorithm update and why you should ignore it.
  • Generating reports – maintaining a focus on business-level numbers, not vanity metrics.
  • Video content – social media cat-nip.
  • Content marketing – positioning a brand as the subject-matter expert.
  • Search Engine Optimisation – page 1 of Google and how to earn your place there. 
  • Social media conventions – using tags, hashtags and attributions in context.

Even if you have been working with social media for some while, this would be an opportunity to refamiliarise yourself with other nuts-and-bolts marketing concepts such as increasing the effectiveness of your website as a sales funnel, drawing insights from a Google Analytics report, optimising your website, blog or YouTube videos for organic search (search engine optimisation) and how to fully open the content marketing tap.
