Social Community Marketing Course in the Pipeline
It has been a busy couple of weeks, but something new on the horizon is the possibility of a social community marketing course. The course idea comes about from the need for more highly trained staff/interns in the area of social community marketing for web 2.0 companies and startups, an acquired source of funding from the EU, benefit to students (particularly immigrant students – part of the funding initiative) and the fact that this type of course is in line with my plans for advanced digital marketing course. Jussi Linkola on the design side of the school has been laying the ground work for the funding, the cooperation between businesses and asked me to join up.
We visited Muxlim’s offices on Friday and met Mohamed El-Fatatry Founder & CEO and Stephen Lee COO to discuss their needs when it comes to employees and how they envisage a course meeting those needs. An excellent open discussion was had and we move on from the idea phase to the planning phase. Muxlim also agreed to sign up to the marketing seminar on Thursday the 19th of November.
