This is great Carra.  Pefect for the folks that want to BLAST off with social media and have no idea of what to do.  This should be a sell out class!

Anna ~  You are so right!  This is actually a class that anyone reading could share with others.... like title agents, lenders, homes inspectors, stagers, real estate agents... anyone could share this opportunity with their clients and help them get on the social media band wagon.. only 1.5 hours one time a week.. easy bites to swallow.. I wish I could have learned that way... instead of the hard way!   So anyone thinking about it could listen to the blogtalkradio show, call in and ask Shelley any quesitons about summer camp!

I know I need to know more about so many of these things. I just don't know if I can fit anything else in.  It seems a bit overwhelming at times.

Tammy ~  I have learned it is a "process"  it took me a long time to get comfortable on self teaching and going to many many webinars... so this make it so simple.. 1.5 hours 1 time a week for 6 weeks... easy bites.... So call in on May 11th and just ask Shelley some questions.. it will be fun.. you can learn and share with your office... The great thing about her program is that you have a week to work on what you learned!  It's all just part of the new media mix.... Hope to hear you on the show!  Would love to talk to you and share about the learning curve.. I am sure other would like to hear too!  Thanks Tammy!

Hi Tammy! Shelley here.  Just like Carra, I learned while drinking out of a firehouse, thus my reason to put this in small, manageable bites.

I have been doing social media training for 3.5 years now (former teacher, guidance counselor, principal).

My passion is training and helping peeps grow their businesses.

Let me know if you need any assistance.....hope to meet you online as we paddle down the social media river!


PS. Hi Anna Banana! Thanks for the input!

Carra ~ Great lesson plan.  I hadn't visited your blog lately.  Now I have a few days of reading to catch up on.  Hope all is well and you're glad to be home.

Ken ~  I am thrilled to be back home on solid ground!  Seems like we do have lots to read.. EVERY day but that is how we learn..  Maybe some of your clients might like to know about this social media fast track!  Heck of a lot easier than I learned!  Thanks Ken!
