Social Media Training Course by Blue Ocean Search

Duration: 1 day
Delivery: Offline
Certification: N/A
Cost: 1377
Course Provider: Blue Ocean Search


The aim of the courses is to provide a clear theoretical, practical and strategic foundation for the efficient social media marketer. The training days are designed to be “tool kits”, so you can become self-sufficient after the day.

There are three types of courses, listed below. Open Day training is available to anyone; the company has regular training days scheduled throughout each month. They can accommodate up to 8 delegates per day who may be from different companies. They can also regularly have more than one delegate from the same company, however for more than three delegates from the same company they recommend the Group Bespoke Training. The course content is therefore set and not tailored to the attendees. This training course lasts one full day.

One-To-One Training is a dedicated one to one training session with you alone. The course content is tailored around your website of choice. The company will do their initial analysis of your website prior to the training to fully understand its strengths and weaknesses. The training is then centred around not only the SEO techniques needed for your website but against your company objectives. The training course lasts one full day and are held at our offices. Blue Ocean Search follow up the training course a month later with a 1 hour conference call to discuss any final questions you may have about the course content and how you are applying the techniques covered in the course.

Group Bespoke Training is designed for companies that have three or more delegates that want to attend a training session. This is the same format as the One-to-one Training but delivered at your premises for multiple delegates. The content will be tailored to your chosen website. The training is typically a day long, however content can be tailored to your requirements and duration can be longer than 1 day.

The structure of each training day is slightly different due to the differing content. All training courses also come with a half an hour follow up consultation to cover any further questions you may have.

If you manage your social media in house then you most likely have KPIs against maximising visibility, increasing likes, increasing visibility and increasing traffic to the site. However it can be difficult to justify this to senior management and the benefit it has to the overall marketing efforts. The course will help establish those goals, strategies to improve performance, and key benchmarking tools that can be used to justify your efforts.

Pricey course but these guys know exactly what they're talking about. The in-person lessons are a great way to learn and I can recommend this course to any aspiring social media marketer.

Thought I'd get a bit more value for money with the high price tag. Decent content but you can get better value elsewhere.
