Announcing the Mumbrella Social Media Academy

social media academy logoMumbrella is to launch an advanced course in using social media for marketing and communications.

The Mumbrella Social Media Academy – which has been developed in collaboration with content agency The Conscience Organisation – will initially run in Sydney on Tuesday nights from February 5 next year. The nine week course will run at Mumbrella House in Chippendale.

The course will feature sessions focusing on the metrics behind social media; how to achieve the most on a small budget; managing Facebook pages; the basics of Twitter; risk management; how to measure return on investment; the secrets of content sharing; and lessons from the coalface.

Sessions will be presented by senior TCO staff. TCO founder Clive Burcham said: “We’re hoping to help the industry a little bit by sharing the experience that we’ve gained. Social media changes every other week. There’s definitely a skills gap in the sector and we hope this is our contribution to it.”

Further details of the Mumbrella Social Media Academy including how to book are available here. The entire nine-week course is priced at $999, or $149 for individual sessions. A maximum of 22 places are available on a first come, first served basis.
