Free social media learning resources.

The resources below have helped me to become a good social media manager and content creator. I have completed some of the training and am still taking some of the classes. 

Learn from different mediums. I have put together different mediums from which I have learn new skills I.e. Free online courses, must watch videos, podcasts to follow and book recommendations. 

Talk to experts. In case you have someone you look up to in this field, talk to them. I am available to talk for free.

Study everyday. Do not rush to complete the courses especially the top 9. Plan to study 3-5 topics in the week. Dedicate 2 hours from Monday to Sunday for learning. You will retain more knowledge doing this.

Don’t assume everything you read is true. Do some research on topics you come across in blogs, podcasts, videos or social media post including the ones I post. In the process of fact finding, you will learn more and faster.

Make learning your lifestyle. Chose to learn something new everyday. Be thirsty for knowledge. On your way to work, listen to a podcast, while you are waiting for your food at a restaurant, read a blog of follow a tweet thread, instead of watching TV all weekend, dedicate one day to your online course.
