Top online Social Media Marketing (SMM) courses

1. Social Media Marketing Specialization on Coursera
This is a specialization in SMM designed by Northwestern University towards developing social brand management and marketing strategies. The factor that makes it effective is the inclusion of the Capstone Project at the end of the course.It makes individuals engage with the course and also motivates them to think outside the set parameters and come up with a creative SMM strategy on their own. This will not just test their learning but will also instill confidence among learners on the grounds of its application.
A certain fee has to be paid in order to have access to this course; however they do make provision of financial aid for those who might not be able to afford it thus making it more accessible to a larger community.
