Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 24, 2014
Demand for talented, trained social media professionals continues to rise as businesses realize the full potential of online marketing. As the leading provider of accredited social media training, Splash Media U is promoting social media careers and collaborative opportunities with the addition of a social media professionals directory to its website.
The Certified Social Media Professional (CSMP) Directory will reside on the Splash Media U website. This public page will serve as a resource for employers, potential clients, and students themselves to contact and work with individuals who have earned the CSMP designation.
“Our commitment to student success doesn’t end at graduation,” said Mark Hitchner, President and CEO of Splash Media L.P. “We have created an open environment where social media professionals can collaborate, network, and expand their careers. Social media is an ever-changing industry, and our goal is to facilitate an exchange of information and trained experts that can keep pace with social media itself, with the ultimate focus on quality employment for our graduates.”
As alumni of Splash Media U, everyone listed in this networking pool has been trained directly by the social media managers who comprise the school’s faculty. Splash Media U has more than 600 on-demand video lessons covering a vast array of social media marketing and branding strategies that have been successfully implemented with small to enterprise level clients.
Lisa Oberbichler, a social media strategist and member of the CSMP Directory, says, "As a graduate, I highly recommend Splash Media U as a source for first class and well-explained information and learning material within the vast realm of social media marketing. I was able to gain extensive knowledge in the five major social media networks as well as fundamental tactics for building and executing marketing and branding strategies."
Companies of all sizes have moved beyond testing the social media waters and are constantly exploring new ways to reach customers. The CSMP Directory ensures that those companies have access to the necessary human capital needed to drive the next generation of social media marketing.
