CAREER THOUGHT LEADERS (CTL)
NEWS & EVENTS

March 28 | Early Registration Ends for Social Branding Coach Training Program

Being visible on LinkedIn today requires an engaging profile that stands out from the noise. And, a great profile isn't enough. We (and our clients) need to understand how to be visible and connect with our audience to achieve career, leadership, job search, and business goals.

Social branding for job search has become more complex, with 66% of recruiters looking at Facebook, 25% sourcing or screening through Instagram, and using scanning technologies score candidates on personality traits based on online activity.

Are you ready to differentiate yourself in the marketplace?

Do you want to know how to guide a client through more comprehensive social brand management?

In the Social Branding Analyst certification program, coaches 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 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

You get done-for-you tools to implement with clients right away:

  • 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)
  • Resources for working with entrepreneurs, business owners, leaders, job seekers, and more

Plus, a community of career and branding professionals who share the latest on social platforms to keep you one step ahead of clients!

Regular registration closes March 28.
