)-- The Pet Biz Helper announced their successful completion of the Social Media Marketing Specialist 2010 Edition Certification at VAClassroom.
Joan Fernandez, owner of The Pet Biz Helper, announced that they have successfully completed the 2010 Edition of the VAClassroom Social Media Marketing Training Program, a cutting edge, business-building program offered to develop current and competitive Social Media services in today’s market.
Since VAClassroom’s first Social Media Marketing Training Program was launched in November of 2008, a number of factors have changed the Social Media landscape, requiring Virtual Assistants to update their skills to stay current. First of all, Social Media has continued to grow and evolve at a rapid rate. For example, Facebook has experienced exponential growth from 200 million members in 2008 to over 350 million today, adding an additional 250,000 daily in 2010. In addition, new Social Media tools and applications are constantly emerging, and even local businesses are beginning to seek ways to leverage them and promote their brand. That is why The Pet Biz Helper is excited to be adding updated Social Media skills to their business, having gained cutting edge tactics, tools and knowledge that they can apply immediately to their work with new and existing clients. “Social Media is the free marketing avenue that all businesses should be using. Having a website is not enough anymore. Companies need a blog, a Facebook fan page, a Twitter account so that they can engage with clients. Customers are looking for that personal relationship!” – Joan Fernandez, Owner of the Pet Biz Helper.
In the Social Media Marketing Training Program (2010 Edition), The Pet Biz Helper was given an overview on the outlook of Social Media Marketing in 2010 and beyond and learned how to perform effective Social Media Strategic Planning that addresses the current trends. They also learned how to maximize their clients’ potential in popular Social Networks like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. In addition, they received training on how to leverage Social Media for local businesses and how to build effective online Social Communities. They have also gained expertise in Social Media Measurement and Analytics, Video Marketing Strategy and Content Distribution in the Social Media realm. Most importantly, with advanced and updated Social Marketing skills, tools and strategies, The Pet Biz Helper is now better equipped to guide their clients through the rapidly evolving Social Media landscape and can lead them to the fastest path to success.
The Pet Biz Helper is an online based company whose purpose is to assist busy petpreneurs with those "annoying and tedious" tasks that they would rather delegate to someone else. The Pet Biz Helper specializes in online marketing and social media strategy working in a team with clients so that they learn how to leverage social media to increase sales and clientele. Having received the Social Media Marketing Specialist 2010 Edition Certification, they are pleased to add cutting-edge Social Media services and tools to their business.
