"Social media marketing, they say, is all about the conversation," explained Jason McDonald, director of the JM Internet Group. "But for businesses and organizations like non-profits or government entities, social media can be a confusing marketing challenge. These social media marketing classes have been designed to master the in's and out's of social media as part of your larger Internet sales and marketing strategy".

California Interest in Social Media Marketing
While the social media classes are taught online, there has been a strong interest throughout California including cities like Los Angeles and San Diego. While the center of gravity on Internet marketing has tended to be in the Bay Area, business owners in less tech savvy cities such as Los Angeles or San Diego have become increasingly concerned about their social media strategy. That said, students can take these classes from anywhere - not just in Los Angeles, but throughout LA County including cities and towns like Santa Clarita, El Segundo, or Long Beach, California.
