Social is the new starting point, as discovery has moved from portals to search to social. Leading brands and agencies want to go beyond the banner to do content-driven social advertising.
In this 4-week class, you’ll learn how to create and sell advertising campaigns built for the social web. Campaigns that are all about content that is meant to be shared, and ROI measurement keyed to engagements and sharing.
This course is for media planners, creative strategists, and digital media entrepreneurs working on a startup that will eventually receive ad revenue (or any ad-powered business, for that matter) that want to understand how digital advertising is developed and transacted on the post-banner social web.

(BuzzFeed is the first true social news organization, reaching over 30 million monthly unique SuperSharers of content. Leading brands like GE, Viacom, Pepsi, Ford, and Toyota all use the BuzzFeed platform to spread their branded content across the social web. )
You’ll learn the following about the social advertising lifecyle:
This will be a hands-on class that you’ll leave having planned a social advertising campaign for an ad, from the pieces of content you’ll create to how to put a deck together and pitch that content to pricing to winning a piece of business.
