Questions? Check out the frequently asked questions below.

Is Linkedin really important for Digital Marketing?

Linkedin houses the largest professional network in the world. 4 out of 5 members members drive business decisions in organisations. A study by Demandwave shows Linkedin being the #1 social network for generating quality leads. Moreover, Linkedin’s audience have x2 the buying power of the average web audience.

While B2B businesses is a direct fit, even B2C businesses could be equipped to reach Linkedin’s fast growing network of engaged professionals.

What's the difference between this Linkedin Marketing Course and other courses offered by Equinet like Social Media Marketing Course?
The Linkedin marketing course dives into deep details of Linkedin’s platform. It contains a comprehensive coverage of the Linkedin campaign manager that no other courses cover. There will be modules on content marketing, ad optimisations, bidding strategies and creative tactics for Linkedin specifically.

The WSQ Social Media Marketing course covers a comprehensive overview of various popular social media platforms and how to develop and implement a social media marketing strategy.

What is the difference between the online classroom and face-to-face traditional classroom?
Typically, in a traditional classroom, classes are conducted with 1 trainer to 20 – 24 learners in a cluster or classroom seating format. Group discussions, group presentations, lectures, peer-to-peer coaching are all conducted face-to-face (in-person).

In an online-based classroom, lessons will be delivered via a video conferencing software, Zoom. Lectures will be conducted via screensharing, while group discussions and group brainstorming will be conducted via “breakout” rooms (individual virtual rooms) to split up discussions into smaller groups.

Both learning modes essentially offer the same course content and learning outcomes.

Read the Online-based Classroom Learner Guide for a more detailed comparison on both formats.

If I have specific questions relating to my business and Linkedin campaigns after the course, can I consult the trainer?

Yes, you may most certainly book unlimited complimentary 3-hour small group clinic sessions with a subject matter expert for up to 3 years to clarify your doubts or address any challenges you may be facing. The links to book your clinic sessions will be emailed to you after your course.

How is this Linkedin Marketing Course different from other Linkedin Courses in the market?

This course provides you with bite-sized, yet comprehensive and actionable social media marketing strategies and tactics that you can implement right after the course. Unlike other Diploma and certification courses, which are packed with assignments and require a long-term time commitment, you can get a comprehensive overview of what LinkedIn marketing is all about in two days.

If you’re in a B2B business, then this is a direct fit. However, we are increasingly seeing higher levels of engagement on the platform.

Linkedin is also not a crowded space now and you will be able to cut through your competitors easily if you get started early. Many marketing professionals do not have the skills on Linkedin and this gives you an edge over them too.
Do I have to prepare anything before attending the course?
For in-person training, do bring along a laptop. You also have the option to loan a laptop from us for the duration of the course. You may also want to bring along a jacket in case the room gets cold.
