A great course that doesn't bother you with only teaching the theory of social media but gives you the full spectrum of the subject and it's impact on the world, brands and your own daily life.

I found this online course to be not only educational but also entertaining, which is still very rare these days. The modules are short and sweet and leave you with valuable business lessons that apply beyond Social Media.

I learnt more from this course than if Wikipedia was a social media expert, accurate, had a sense of humour, only provided useful information, was a good teacher and didn't ask for donations. Really loved the experience and will apply so many learnings to my business!

I found this Ogilvy social media highly insightful. The course offers a detailed look on social media usage in present day and predictions for the future. The course is a must for everyone who wants to dive deeper into the world of social media, even if you're already familiar with it.

I found the course exceptionally interesting, and the use of real brands in the case studies made the course relatable to the social media industry of today. I think the course is a must for those working in the marketing sector, even if they aren't in social media, as it delves deeper into how to integrate social media into your broader business plan!
