Continuing Education

5 Ways to consume Continuing Education

In this episode I talk about 5 ways you can consume education in your industry (and maybe not in your industry). Those are:

  • Online Courses
  • Industry Conferences
  • Mastermind Retreats
  • Membership Sites
  • Workshops

Online Courses

This type of continuing education is a convenient way to increase your knowledge of a certain topic or subject matter. There are usually no time constraints, and you can work through the material at your own pace. They can also be less expensive than heading to a conference or workshop.

I believe Social Media Manager School will be opening up again in July. In full disclosure, that is an affiliate link. Use of it is much appreciated.

If you are interested in Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy, then I highly recommend you get on the WAITLIST.

And you will have to wait until next year to join Stu McLaren’s TRIBE, but you can get on his WAITLIST too! He only opens up this course once a year.

Conferences

Conferences are a great way to engage with other professionals in your industry. Many times as small business owners (or even solopreneurs), we don’t have as many opportunities to interact in person with other people in our industry.

Sometimes I love just geeking out on tech with other marketers. Sharing what I know and learning what they know is so much fun!

Here is the link for Social Media Marketing World 2020, which is put on by Social Media Examiner. This conference is all about social media marketing, so keep that in mind when considering it. This too is an affiliate link for that conference.

If you have any interest in VidCon, those tickets are still available.

Membership Site

Getting continuing education through a membership site can be a great way to not only have constant new material to absorb, but they can also be a great way to spread the expense on learning over the year with monthly payments. Sometimes we have to look at our cashflow and budget to do what’s best for our business.

The Social Media Examiners Society does not have their doors open year round. And it looks like the doors will be closing this Friday (5/24/19), so join asap if you want in on this membership.

Workshops

Workshops can also be a more economical way to bump up your education (especially if they are a 2-3 hour workshop). Plus there isn’t a huge time commitment for them either if they take place in a single day.

If you are in (or will be in) the Boulder, CO area, then you can always check out our latest offerings on Workshops.

Until next time….
