Creative social media courses for a symphony of sales and engagement

Back in July, as part of miacademy, we launched a series of social media courses to help you to unleash your creativity, fight your fears and grow your social media skills. We’re delighted to let you know that these courses are now available for our members to watch back.

We designed this programme to give music industry businesses quick and effective ways to entertain and excite their audience about their services and products.

These courses aim to help busy music professionals find the right online marketing tactics to confidently use digital methods to grow their businesses and show their creativity.

The sessions were delivered by entrepreneur and winner of Social Media Marketing Awards, Hel Reynolds, who has years of experience in helping creative people find strategic, easy, and quick ways to nail it online. Hel’s company Comms Creatives have helped brands like Macmillan Cancer Support, Scottish Power and Manchester City Council get lots more social media engagement. They’ve worked with loads of organisations like NUS, Welsh Government and the NHS, to create unique, pioneering social media strategies.
