Brainstation’s Social Media Marketing Certificate Course is designed to introduce key social media concepts, tools, and best practices. Taught by industry-leading professionals, the course uses a project-based learning model that mimics what Social Media Marketers experience in the field. Students will gain hands-on experience building measurable, end-to-end social campaigns, and working with social media management platforms including Business Manager for Instagram and Facebook, and LinkedIn Campaign Manager.

What You’ll Learn

  • Developing a Strategy: Learn to define the overall goal of a social campaign with key performance indicators. Based on business goals, you’ll select your platforms and develop an understanding of what success looks like.
  • Creating Campaigns: You’ll dive deep into ad platforms (such as Business Manager for Instagram and Facebook) to create your campaign, including selecting ad units, writing dynamic copy, and setting targets to minimize spend and maximize results.
  • Optimizing Performance: Take a data-driven approach to social media, by learning to analyze data and adjust your campaign’s copy, spend and targeting to ensure success.

I've had good experiences with Brainstation. I've now taken both their Data Science and Machine Learning certificate programs, and I'll be commenting on the Data Science one here.

First off, the instructors I've had have been top notch. Andrew was my instructor this go round, and it was evident that this guy works data science for a living. You can tell by the way he codes, changes code on the fly at such speed, and debugs code when it's not working. He also seems to be genuinely enchanted with Data Science as a whole. He answered all questions, even my dumb questions, clearly and cleanly.

The course content itself is solid. I highly recommend you know Python prior to taking this course, rather than just knowing a programming language in general. Everything is coded in Python from day 1, to include using some more "advanced" features like list comprehensions, so having a good grasp of Python I think is integral to your experience with these courses. The only thing I really wasn't high on in the course content was the Statistics section; it's simply too large and broad of a topic to cover in the scope of this course. In my opinion, a basic statistics background should already be had before jumping into Data Science. Most classes and topics are like that, but the statistics portion really stuck out to me.

Jupyter notebooks are provided, so the material is flexible and easy to work with. The instructors provide solutions-included notebooks after the lessons, which is handy for someone like me that wants to watch them work the problems and then figure them out in my own manner later.

Due to the nature of these part-time courses, and the material covered in such a short time, don't expect to just listen to lectures and be good at Data Science. You will need to work through the Jupyter notebooks on your own time, and do additional research on your own as well. This should be expected for anyone who has ever coded before, but for those who might think it's a sit back and learn it all class, it's not that easy.

A hanging point for some people is that there's no 'job guarantee' or assistance with BrainStation. To those folks, I ask you do you truly believe that you're going to get a dream job out of a bootcamp's career assistance or guarantees? I think it's a worthless perk for the average student because you're going to have to know your stuff to be successful in the field anyway, and if you don't know your stuff, you're probably not going to stay in that job long even if it's given to you. It may work out for some, but I didn't see it as a requirement.

Overall, I would recommend BrainStation to others, particularly if your company is willing to help with the tuition.
