*Looking for classes to schedule*
*Finds ISY6621: Social Media and Digital Marketing class*
“This is going to be an easy ass class!” – Sheritta thought to herself.
“What did I get myself into?” – Sheritta thinks to herself, as she sits in class on the first day.
“Whelp, challenge accepted!” – Sheritta confirms with herself after the first day of class.
By the end of the first day of class, I knew ISY6621: Social Media and Digital Marketing was not going to be an easy class as I initially thought. I also kept thinking to myself “how bad could this be?” Well, the challenge was accepted, and I have met expectations (well we shall see when the final grade is posted). This was an awesome class, and I would recommend anyone to schedule this class. There were multiple topics that were mentioned in class between Professor Kane and the individual presentations. I enjoyed it all but would like to mention a few items that I will really take away from this class:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Twitter Feed
A great presentation from @paulandresonbc about Dropshipping. I never heard about it before and became quickly interested in the topic. I have to say many of the presentations during this semester were useful and I was able to obtain some knowledge from each. I also really liked Shit That I Knit presentation by @sejackson33. One of these hats is currently on my Christmas Wish List. I started following them on Instagram and also fell in love with the personality of the brand. Okay, but back to dropshipping… can I say this is probably one of the coolest items yet. So, after the presentation, I did some research of my own and found out that I could do dropshipping for my current company Esteem Hair. With both my business partner and I working fulltime jobs, it is not always easy to get to the post office to send out our products. We were looking into a way that we are able to drop ship our products, so we do not have to worry about the packaging and shipping process, to focus more on selling and social media marketing. We should have it all squared away pretty soon, but I really have to thank @paulandresonbc for introducing the idea of dropshipping to me :)
Artificial Intelligence was a big topic in our class, and we sure did have a lot of questions for @geraldckane. Maybe a little more than he could handle, even though I thought the class went well. I liked the readings mentioned in class, they introduced a different perspective on how to look at AI and robots, in the near future. Nothing like watching the Will Smith movie, “I, Robot”! But I agree with some of the readings that mentioned we need to work with robots; have them do tedious tasks, so we are able to develop and work on more critical tasks. Also the fact that AI will ultimately be here quicker then we thought as we are already trying to automate items we do day to day.
I totally could not keep up with the twitter feed the first couple of months of the semester, but I have to say it did add a nice touch to the class. Come on its a social media class, why wouldn’t be using social media!…It made total sense. Well now I don’t have to worry about tweeting with the hashtag #is6621, but I am proud to say that I will be deleting my old twitter and flourish through my new twitter account! I think my new twitter account is more age appropriate and as a business woman, I needed a little upgrade. Instead of just my foolish thoughts, I would post on my old twitter check out my new Twitter handle @sheritta2017 for updates on Esteem Hair, tweets about beauty and hair, but also another interest I have, entrepreneurship and technology.
I was very pleased to get into this class, especially when I found out how difficult it can be to get in. Professor @geraldckane and my classmates were all great! We were all able to learn from each other in a great atmosphere while enjoying yummy snacks. Shoutout to @ericiangesuale and other classmates who were able to get Gyro City to bring free food. You guys are the real MVP!
Another class crossed off my list. Farewell, hope to keep in touch on Twitter :)
