There are plenty of places online where you can pay for social media and online marketing courses. Many of them are excellent. If you are hesitant, on a budget, or just careful with your money, here are some useful, free alternatives.
I included my new Straight Advice: How to Market Art Online e-book. You can grab it for only $5.99, which is the best price for it on the planet. The rest are free—at least as of today.
Some of the free, listed courses are from Udemy. It is fickle and known to change things so no promise the classes will stay free. My advice is to sign up for them now to lock in the free rates for certain.
One thing that is for certain, if you sign up and take some of these courses, you are going to advance your knowledge. I’ve got a list of Facebook courses I’m getting ready for a future post. In the meantime, get started with your choice of these marketing courses. Your only cost is your time. And, you’d spend it on a paid marketing course, too.
If you have taken any of these courses, or if you do after reading the post, please take the time to comment on the quality and your perception of their value. We’ll all benefit from each other’s experience.
