This course may be unavailable.


Businesses and institutions today increasingly turn to social media platforms to build and promote their brands, share news and information, and engage with their audiences. But given its massive popularity, writing for social media can be a challenge. How do you connect with your audience? How do you write for these critical channels?

This course focuses on effective writing practices for a social media environment. You will learn how to structure and write content that will deliver your messaging and engage your audiences; you will learn how to think about what a reader needs and wants from your organization.

Learn how to devise your own writing approach – and how to tell your company’s story, convey information, and express your point of view, and earn engagement.

    There is no course - it is unavailable and it's not clear why it is still listed as a course.
    we were looking forward to learning how to write for social media and not take a marketing course but take a course that focused on communication and getting the audience attention.
