      Coursework:

      Most of these resources are free, and some have a nominal cost. They are all recommended.

      In addition to the live talks that I attend and the direct mentoring I receive, these resources have been the primary sources of my information.  I learn by applying these tools to peoples business and measuring the results.  If you want to learn this art and craft, watch all of the videos that are linked to in the text above and below this line.  Buy and study the books and audio cds, and read the articles.

      Welcome to the Social Media Revolution.  Your education directly impacts the way businesses operate, and directly forwards humanities shift in consciousness.  We will address that more in future writings.  For now, lets get on with your learning materials.

      • Read “Webify your Business,” apply these principles to your business and create a strategy and a business plan that includes
      • Read “Get Clients Now”
        • use these principles to refine your marketing plan.

      This program is just the beginning, and I hope it helps. It should be complete in one month and will be offered for free as an eCourse. I will probably also hold some form of a group coaching call for folks who want to take Social Media on and Implement it themselves.

      Sincerely,

      Jonathan Haber
