Which certification did you complete?
I completed Social Media Certification.
How long did it take to complete?
I took almost three weeks in total. About 10 hours in general. I took an exam today (Dec 07, 2019, with 69/70 scores). At first, I plan to study for one hour a week, but things changed. I had a ton of works and honestly started to study this certification on week 7. During week 7 to 10, I plan to finished 2 lessons per week. I almost achieved my goal, but week 9, I totally messed up with my plan. I got a lot of work and an exam coming up to me. Then this week (week 10), I finished up 4 lessons.
What did you like best/least?
I would say I like everything. In fact, this certification content similar to the class content, which makes me follow up easier. I love how they quizzed me after a single video. However, I think those quizzes are way too easy. I think it could be better if there are more questions in each quiz or make it more difficult to check my understanding.
Were there any disappointments or frustrations?
A big NO.
What did you learn?
I learned a lot. As I said before, the content of this certification, similar to our class content. Some material such as monitoring, terminology like bid, buyer persona, and so on. I learn about SMART Goal, how to develop content, monitor ads, social media channels, team models, how to manage the budget.
Do you believe this certification program is useful for other marketers? On a scale of 1-5, how likely are you to recommend this certification program to a friend? Why?
I strongly believe what I learned, as I mentioned above, will tremendously help other marketers and me. I recommend everyone who wants to work in this area should get this certification first. You will gain a better understanding of the digital marketing structure. I would give 5, which is strongly recommend to my friends because, as a part of marketing students, I think digital marketing or digital platforms have played a significant role in all businesses. They will get knowledge about digital marketing structures to help their company in someways.
