How many hours have you spent on social media this week? Go on; we won’t tell. Wondering if there’s a way to turn all this Instagram/Tik Tok/YouTube/insert-your-platform-of-choice time into a career? Well, you could be an influencer, but many of the same principles apply to creating digital content for brands and organisations.
In this short course, you’ll learn just what goes into being an influencer or brand on social media, and how to take a professional approach to social media. At the end of the course, you will have determined your competition, developed your social media strategy and created content to get your dream job as an influencer underway. Plus, we’ll also consider if you really want to be an influencer, investigate what other ways your social media habit might lead to a job, and how a university degree in communication or design could help you get there.
