MarketingProfs U: Making School Cool

Things I hated about school: Lessons with no obvious real-world application, dull instructors, and the way other students looked at me funny when I rolled out of bed and showed up in my pajamas.

So I'm kidding about that last one. (I always pulled on sweats, at least.) But you really can Come As You Are when you enroll in MarketingProfs University! MPU is our new online training program that gives you comprehensive and intensive instruction, with actionable takeaways, at an affordable price. (And it's online: Did I say that already?)


In other words, you'll get schooling you can use in either Email or Social Media (or both!): Two areas critical for marketers to master.

The capable and super smart Karen Talavera is the instructor for the eight-session, Email Marketing Essentials. By the end of the program, you'll have mastered what you need to know to create, implement, and measure a successful email marketing program for your organization.

Meanwhile, the lovable and popular Jay Baer gives you seven intensive hours of instruction in Social Media Marketing Fast Track: Taking you step-by-step through the process of setting your social media marketing strategy, integrating social media with your other marketing programs, staffing your program and setting success metrics, and tons more.

Sign up for one or both. And let me know what you think! We thrive on feedback.
