Our Vision
is to equip, train and accelerate 1,000 Social media managers for the industry in 2023
Why does The Social
Academy Exist?

Because of the growing demand for professional Social Media Managers in this competitive market, as more and more business owners understand that social media isn't just a "nice to have" but a necessity in order to grow and scale their business.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs in social media are predicted to expand 8% by 2028, which is faster than the average expected pace for all occupations.
  • Only about 10-15% of formal educational institutions offer Social Media Management as a degree.
  • Did you also know that. 1 of 3 Social Media Managers make it through their first vear within a company before resigning or getting let go.
Companies are looking to hire, but the pipeline of talent is either scarce or limited: that's why we designed this academy - to move Social Media Managers away from having to be "scrappy" and left to "figure it out" on their own, but to be well equipped, trained and supported as they enter this industry for success!
Whether you are just getting started or looking for extra training this Academy is for you!

Overview: This Enterprise Module is uniquely crafted for companies and organizations who are looking to bridge the gap between the CEO’s vision and the Social Media Manager’s execution. 
Did you know that… according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs in social media are predicted to expand 8% by 2028, which is faster than the average expected pace for all occupations.
Did you also know that.. 1 of 3 Social Media Managers make it through their first year within a company before resigning. According to Career Explorer: Social media managers rated their satisfaction with their salaries 2.8/5.
Why is that? Social Media Managers wear multiple hats:
  • Copywriter
  • Graphic Designer
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • Video Editor
  • Strategist
  • Project Manager
  • Community Managers
  • Market Researchers
  • Data Analyst
This is a highly turned over role because:
  • CEO’s have high expectations and demands for this role, oftentimes without fully understanding the layers of demand and responsibility within the actual role, which quickly leads to underwhelm and disappointment when it comes to overall performance and execution from the SMM.
  • Social Media Managers are overworked and underpaid for their role, oftentimes feeling underlooked, under supported and under appreciated by their CEO/Marketing Leader.
What’s included in this module?
  • Month 1:
    Social Audit, Business Goals Alignment, Content Planning and Execution
  • Month 2:
    Maintenance, Consistency and Accountability 
  • Tailormade Consulting Program

FAQ List
What happens after enrolling into The Social Academy?
Our Academy team will be in contact with you a week before class begins, to provide you with the link to access your digital course.

-Our community module will be hosted via zoom every month for 4 weeks.
-Classes will kick off on the first Wednesday of every month, and will run for 4 weeks at either 12-1:30pm or 3-4:30pm pst.
What is the difference between the self paced and community module?
The difference between both modules is the preference of learning on your own independently or within a supported community.

We encourage the community module option, as it provides the Social Media Manager with a cohort of students who become friends and/or potential business partners, and it plants the student within a healthy community to grow and scale their careers together, because you shouldn’t do life or business alone. You also receive a free limited edition academy hat as well! ;)

Who is the Enterprise Accelerator for?
The Enterprise Accelerator is for any Social Media Manager currently employed within a corporate enterprise/company.

This Accelerator program will consult with both the CEO/Marketing Leader and the Social Media Manager, because we believe that in order to bridge the gap, the expectation and communication should be clear among both roles.

We will provide tailored consulting within month 1 and provide maintenance support within month 2 to ensure that the SMM is supported even after the program is complete.
