The instructor was knowledgable. However, she was having technical issues and as a result the lesson started 20 minutes late, and the instructor still ended the class at 1pm, so we missed out on 20 mins.

Great, engaging instructor and I loved the in-class activities. Very practical, hands-on approach. I also learned a few things I didn’t even know I didn’t know!

Really enjoyed this class, I thought the teacher was excellent. Very personable and covered all the main points - it’s tricky in a group setting when people have different levels of knowledge but I think he handled it very well and made sure all our questions were addressed. Would highly recommend.

It was very interesting and I did learn about SEO strategies but the class was taught using such technical terms that for a beginner, I was a little lost. I didn’t get as much out of it as I had hoped.

Really wanted to know how to do specific things, but this course was more about giving you the definitions to things. When I have something to analyze, then maybe this course would have been more useful.

Salim is an awesome instructor. Really engaged with everyone in the class and answered any questions we had without making us feel stupid. He tailored the material to what we were all seeking to learn more about, which was also great. I definitely recommend him as an instructor, and this class is great for anyone who wants to dip their toes into the world of digital marketing (or for people who are already in the industry but want to expand their breadth of knowledge). The class goes by super quickly for 7 hours, and I even walked out with some new acquaintances!

The teacher was excellent I really liked her but the material covered wasn't what I was looking for. I could see this as something useful if it was a continuing class that gets in depth and detailed and slower, starting from the bottom working its way up. I personally need more time with an instructor and subject. Three hours wasn't enough with all that can and could be covered in social media marketing.

Great instructor. Class is packed full of info, but there’s plenty of time to ask questions. GA classroom spaces aren’t great (super loud HVAC, and always too hot) but other than that, the class itself was very informative. Actually completing some activities while in the backend was very helpful, vs. most classes where it’s lecture format. The instructor was able to break down concepts to make it understandable even for novices.
