1. Social Selling for Small Businesses: Learn How Social Media Will Help You Grow and Sustain Your Business

If you want to position your business as an industry leader, or just build up leads for potential sales, you must have a strong presence on social media – it can’t be overlooked. Social media is where a large percentage of customers spend a great deal of their online time, whether it’s looking for information or deals. If you are there, and positioned correctly on multiple platforms it will speak well for your business. This course will show you how to use social selling via social media to the best benefit.

Social selling isn’t just a fad or the latest approach to selling that businesses need to adopt. It’s a result of the massive integration of social media in how we conduct our lives. Sales professionals understand they can connect to and leverage these habits. This course is designed for entrepreneurs and sales professionals to learn how to function in that space.

In this course, we’re going to explore how social selling is an essential requirement for sales teams, and how the relationships that are created and nurtured within social media will help you grow and sustain your business. We’ll also learn how to apply specific techniques to connect with your audience and potential fans in the social space.

2. Marketing for Small Businesses: Explore 100 Strategies For Your Small Business

Marketing is about getting your business known and building your position within the marketplace. This course will show you how small businesses can leverage traditional marketing tools to grow their presence, increase results, and meet business goals.

This course will teach you how marketing is different for small businesses, elements of a successful marketing message, what the marketing cycle looks like, how to build a marketing plan with the five P’s, how to market with social media, and how to create a marketing budget. You will also explore over 100 strategies and consider which ones are right for your small business.

3. Communications for Small Business Owners: Learn the Basic Techniques in Communication to Improve Sales

Communications between a small business and its customers is a multi-lane highway. Navigate this highway successfully and you increase customer numbers and profits. Set out on this highway unaware, ill-prepared, or unconvinced of its importance, and you will lose ground to your competitors.

If you are new to the communications highway, this Communications for Small Business Owners course will provide the foundation for future development. If your company has some communications expertise, this course will help you strengthen and polish your essential components.

I'm glad I had this opportunity to learn about how to build a better platform for a company.

Question 2 needs to be reviewed as there are grammar and spelling issues which makes it hard to answer the question correctly.
Would be great if the course literature was printable in a whole rather than printing each page of at a time.
Also, resuming back to the course had to start from the beginning again rather than resuming where I left of which at times was close to the end, very frustrating.
Overall the course was good.
