We also offer courses that are done in an interview style, where OSM Trainers talk to subject matter experts to gain even more insight.

 

Our live sessions are taught in real-time exclusively for our October University audience. We also answer questions from our members in our Q&A sessions, we call Town Halls.

I’m not sure I can make those monthly payments.

Social media is not my only responsibility at work, will OU be right for me?

Yes. Professionals who manage social media often do it as just ONE of their tasks. They also often have other titles like Marketing Coordinator, Brand Reputation Specialists, etc. If you manage social media for a brand or government agencies.

I prefer learning from October U versus YouTube because with October U, you're able to interact with other social media managers and you're able to learn more detailed things rather than just some base level of knowledge. Social media is always changing and October U always stays on top of it just to make sure we know what's going on.
