NEWS & EVENTS

OCTOBER 1 | Early Registration Closes for Social Branding Analyst Certification

Leadership, career, and branding coaches have a growing opportunity to help clients expand their thought-leadership, build and nurture their network, and achieve their goals.

By providing a proven process and social media plan, coaches also have an opportunity to deliver a long-term value proposition with confidence in the value they deliver and land more of their ideal clients.

Are you ready to differentiate yourself in the marketplace and transform your clients' social brands?

In the Social Branding Analyst certification program, coaches will learn real-world strategies and get new tools to help clients craft an integrated social media strategy built around the differentiation, power, and value of a personal brand.

You'll walk away ready to:

  • Overcome client overwhelm by clarifying social media goals aligned with their brand
  • Transform social media results through the development of consistent messaging
  • Attract your client's target audience with a strategy informed by research and best practices
  • Communicate your unique value to achieve your career or business development goals

We've made the program more robust … meaning more value for you, including:

  • Lifetime access to use the 360Reach survey
  • Coaching plans to guide clients in using any of the top social media channels (LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram).
  • Case studies and resources for working with entrepreneurs, business owners, leaders, job seekers, and more!

Regular registration closes October 1!
