    I am also very interested but would ask whether the course can be tailored to using social media as a marketing tool. Many thanks

    If we receive new funding, we’ll be running this again after April (look out for email updates). We’ll also be running other marketing-related courses, e.g., running a successful social media campaign and driving traffic to your website.
    In the meantime, there are a number of related e-courses at, e.g., Marketing for Freelances and Building your Web Presence.
    Thanks for your comment.
