One of the best ways to learn social media marketing is by implementing strategies and sharing ideas with other social media practitioners, just like you.
That’s why we’re so excited to create this community of social media marketers to learn and grow better together!
To get started, say hello and introduce yourself. Here are some questions to help you get started:

Hi everyone! My name's Leah, I'm a Media Account Exec at an indie ad agency in the UK looking to step out from traditional media and into the social world.
I love Instagram and think well-matched influencer partnerships can be a great way of advertising - if I can tell an influencer I follow genuinely has used & believes in a product, I'm twice as likely to remember it and potentially purchase it.
The last memorable update for me came from the National Trust amongst my Instagram stories, using nothing but a soundscape, a photograph and some text reminding me to take a pause, and that we all need to take moments out in nature to find our calm.
I'm hoping to learn about what goes on behind a social campaign to create a successful and show-stopping piece of marketing. I'm also looking to rebrand myself personally online so will be borrowing any inspiration from the course for myself! Looking forward to getting to know the community 😊

Hi my name is Alexa and I am from Florida. I currently work in the finance industry and I am trying to expand my skill set because I am currently unhappy where I am at. I am also wanting to eventually adventure out and do the "van life", and I want to expand my skills to find a position where I can both work and live my van adventure.

My name is Lexi and I just joined this study group today! I am currently a Senior at Liberty University earning my BBA in Digital Marketing and Advertising. I am very excited to expand my knowledge by learning more from other professionals, experiences, and organic conversations.
In my opinion, the most effective social media channel to use for promotion is Instagram. This is because the platform offers the best tools for businesses to use to expand their brand, business, and audience. Some of their tools include allowing business accounts to link their website and/or product within a story post, offering Instagram Shopping, engaging features, and detailed analytics.
The last memorable social media update I remember from Instagram was when the app added Reels. Videos have always been a passion of mine to make because they have the potential to share so much more than a single photo. I have seen countless small businesses grow thanks to the Reels feature and will continue to use it myself because of the opportunities it brings.
From this study group I hope to gain insight on multiple perspectives from others on how to use social media to a business's advantage. I am always trying to be open-minded to new techniques, knowledge, and experiences that I can take and apply to my career.

Hello! My name is Simona Rivero, and I am a graduate student at the University of Florida studying Mass Communication with a specialization in Social Media.

In my opinion, the most effective social media channel to use for promotion is TikTok. It has become increasingly popular for not only teenagers but older generations as well.
The last memorable social media update I remember from a company was KFC's new plant-based fried chicken!
