Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media doesn’t have to be difficult. This class will teach you how to cruise through the murky waters of hashtags, @ signs, and tweets. We’ll cover how to:
  • set up an account 
  • write an effective bio 
  • post quality content 
  • find organic followers 
  • take stellar photos 
  • create your personal hashtag 
  • market yourself or your brand on major platforms 
  • avoid being shadowbanned 
  • how analytics prevent your posts from garnering likes 
  • truncate URLs to fit Twitter 
  • and much more

Don’t be intimidated. It’s much easier than you think…and fun!

Espinosa has built a social media following of thousands by implementing the strategy taught in this class. Please bring these items to the class:
