What students are saying ~

Everyone, if you are looking for a fantastic set of courses to maximize your knowledge of online and social media marketing, look no further. As a small business owner, I learned SO MUCH about how to build and manage an effective online presence. As Professor Hayes points out in the class, social media marketing and online marketing now outpace print marketing by a significant measure. CISA 345 and 346 are a perfect combination of instruction to navigate the sometimes confusing waters of this relatively new, but very important, set of marketing strategies. ~ Katrina Rasbold, business owner and author
