I have had the pleasure of taking two 10 week Social Media Training courses from Jeff Brown with Alpha Social Media. Both courses were tailored to the needs and knowledge levels of the class participants and Jeff always found specific examples to make the material relevant to the various industries of the students. It is obvious that Jeff loves what he does and imparts his extensive knowledge with enthusiasm and skill.
The non-intimidating class atmosphere created by Jeff facilitates learning in a fun and friendly environment. Jeff is continually staying abreast of all developments in social media and Jeff incorporates the latest trends and products in his class material. I can highly recommend social media training with Jeff Brown at Alpha Social Media

Jeff Brown brings an absolute wealth of information to his classes and freely shares it, taking time to be sure that participants successfully reach the levels he is promoting. He is quite open to repeat attendance at other courses if repeat teaching is needed to reinforce learning.
My website in the past had very few hits, nor did my blogs, but since I have integrated Twitter and LinkedIn – both very ably taught by Jeff – to my promotions, I can see much more exposure to my expertise in the Travel Industry. At this point, it has not yet translated into sales but expect that exposure will, very soon, open up more opportunities for my travel business at Almontravel.
