Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
One Million Acts of Innovation™ announces their one-of-a-kind social media program named “Flourish.” Flourish is a social media boot camp that trains university and college students on advanced social media programs.
Trained students are granted to companies in Canada in the hopes of adding new customers and penetrating markets through the use of social media.
One Million Acts of Innovation has been working since 2010 to perfect Flourish in its pilot stage. The program has been tested by more than 77 students who have successfully used their skills in businesses across Ontario.
An example of student success is the group from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, who used their social media skills to help strengthen a local “Coffee Culture.” The students effectively increased the business’ Facebook presence and popularity. The students helped the company learn how easy it was to reach new online markets using Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. With its provincial success, Flourish is now ready for a national launch and is actively looking for students and businesses to join the project.
