No matter what your niche the class enables students to break out of the mold and be known. In the world of Social Media your presence is everything. Klout and Kred measure that presence and ability to be seen and heard. This allows the student to see which platforms need attention to expand presence whether it be Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Empire Avenue or curating networks like Scoop.it.

Empire Avenue is a must in Social Media 101. Although a game Empire Avenue enables users to expand their “presence” and become more “known” driving more traffic to blogs, and causes. Once involved one can easily get caught up in the game partially because the folks at Empire Avenue are so welcoming. Newbies can expect their first 24 hours to be exciting but it means taking action and participating as well. Once into the loop buying and doing missions Empire Avenue can become a favorite stop. Michael Q Todd continues to recommend daily visits to Empire Avenue for continued success.

Social media 101 for business will keep students busy with daily and weekly homework assignments from YouTube video introductions, to blog posts about social media that students are required to write. At the end of the five week class students should have a good handle on the new platforms they are using in addition, to strategies for success that will work any niche.
