Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
Splash Media University, the leading provider of accredited online social media marketing training, now offers a course focusing on the social media site Pinterest. This new curriculum is designed to fit any business marketing model, but is designed especially for the restaurant industry. As part of a partnership with online training platform Schoox, the Pinterest course will join other food service-focused on-demand programs on Yelp, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Blogging, and YouTube.
With over 60 classes covering Pinterest features, tactics, and best practices, the new Pinterest course explains how restaurants can utilize each facet of the image sharing site as part of their marketing strategy. The new curriculum was designed by social media professionals based on their experience using Pinterest for business clients.
“As one of the fastest growing social sites in history, Pinterest was the clear choice for our next video course,” said Mark Hitchner, president of Splash Media U. “Just a few years after it was launched, Pinterest was already referring more website traffic than YouTube and LinkedIn combined. Restaurants need to know how to harness that kind of marketing power.”
Like the other courses in the social media marketing curriculum, the Pinterest coursework is supplemented with interactive questions and live support from instructors. Schoox’s responsive interface allows learning on the go, with playback available on mobile devices. All social media training content, including Pinterest material, is updated regularly to accurately reflect major changes and updates to the sites being taught.
“We are excited about adding the Pinterest training for our Schoox subscribers,” said Lefteris Ntouanoglou, co-founder and CEO of Schoox, a strategic partner of Red Book Connect. “Splash Media U is in a field of its own when it comes to providing comprehensive, relevant and beneficial coursework like the Pinterest curriculum targeted to the foodservice industry. When you add the mobile-friendly nature of the training interface, you’ve got an outstanding training offering for our customers.”
