I have been downloading so much material on social media marketing that my head is spinning. So many “guru’s” so little time.

UCT would offer a single point of reference with expert contributors and I could then discard all the other information, focus on UCT Social Media Online and know that I a getting the best advice and training there is in South Africa.

What started off as a hobby, has become my passion. I’ve been doing social media blogging/marketing for about 5/6 years and all self-taught along the way. Fb pages, twitter and IG have mostly been community and interest based, and since 2014 also helping a friends promotions company. I need to start earning substantial income and have the needed qualification to sell my business as a social media marketer with, better. With students in the house already, a much needed course is just not within my financial means right now.
