The Social Media Basics Training Course teaches everything you need to know, and have in place before beginning your Social Media Marketing journey. Get the basics right and then the rest will be easier.

Basic Social Media Training for Business

Love or hate it, Social Media Marketing is increasingly important for businesses of any size from sole trader to the corporate giant.

The problem of course is knowing where to start and how to leverage Social Media for the benefit of your business without wasting hundreds of hours guessing where to be, which tools to use, how to use them and when.

Social Media can be a dangerous drain on time and resources, so as well as teaching the “why” and the “how” we teach best working practices for social media time management and meaningful productivity.

The Social Media Basics course is for those businesses who know they should be involved but are not sure where to start. During the course Mick Say will help delegates to understand how the internet has evolved and why social media marketing is important for their businesses.

Mick uses a really easy to understand and implement Step-by-Step training method and delegates also leave the course with a detailed set of road-maps and pre-printed notes to ensure that they can implement the strategies upon return to their busy offices.

Why Social Media Basics for Businesses?

Social Media Basics is a full day, instructor led introduction to Social Media and Network Marketing.
It includes live, hands-on, Step-by-Step training using the tools, processes and software needed to successfully implement a social media marketing campaign.

There are literally thousands of Social Media sites, items of software and applications involved with social media marketing and when novices set-out into social media they get drawn into a dizzying array of affiliate products and software; most of which is useless and some dangerous.

Mick Say will guide delegates through this jungle and explain what to use and what to avoid. AND how to achieve a meaningful Social Media experience using very high quality tools, software and applications all of which are FREE! Please do not purchase any social media software or applications prior to attending the Social Media Intermediate course.

I attended a Social Media Course that Mick had organised for beginners in Social Media on September 17th 2010. This course was very informative and Mick made all those attending feel as if it was individually tailored for them. No one was left behind and where necessary Mick gave individual tuition.

By the end of the day all of us were informed and reassured that Social Media was a safe tool to be used by anyone for growing their business for the future. We were all armed with the basic tools to start exploring Social Media, and an action plan of how to proceed.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone wanting understand how Social Media can help them and their business.

Dear Mick

Social Media Course

Thank you so much for such an enjoyable course on Friday 17th September last.

I know I have a lot to learn about social media networking and your intermediate course
was just the ticket. Your explanations were clear and concise and the contents of the
course were delivered with expertise and the appropriate amount of humor.

Your patience to ensure that all was understood before we moved on was incredible and
appreciated I am sure by all attendees.

The course was money well spent in my opinion and I shall certainly be recommending it
to others and I am looking forward to the next appropriate course for myself.

My best regards
Mary O’Leary

Dear Mick


I would just like to thank you for helping me make the transition into the modern world of Twitter, Ecademy and FaceBook! These were just words that I had heard bandied about but with your weekly comments on the potential benefit to our business I felt that I had to give it a go.

I would like to thank you for the patience you showed all of us on the course, making sure that we all understood before moving on to the next stage. It was great to be shown the benefits and not just to be told about them. Not being very technically minded the prospect of doing the course was quite daunting; I learned so much but also realise that I have so much more to learn.

One day was really not long enough to get to grips with everything and I think a follow up day is definitely needed.

I will promote your courses as I truly believe that they are the way forward for all business owners.

Once again, many thanks for a great day and massive learning curve last Friday.

Yours Sincerely
Michelle Cole

Social Media Intermediate

A huge thank you to Mick!

Mick Say’s social media intermediate is a brilliant course for any business looking to increase their online presence and connect with other businesses in a way which would not have been possible a few years ago.

Mick’s passion for social media is unparalleled and his enthusiasm is infections. After spending the day setting up profiles on the main social network sites and learning which third party tools are the most effective (and free!) I went home and carried on until well past my bed time and I’ve been hooked ever since!

There’s no doubt in my mind that social media is going to be vital for businesses in the future and if you are serious about networking in any form then I can’t recommend Mick highly enough“.
