Happy Halloween Alumni!
Are you afraid to wander outside on the scariest night of the year? Then spend a night in with one of our upcoming online courses. One of our most popular social media boot camps is coming up!

How could I have stayed inside and watched an upcoming course?
I couldn’t have. The pitch didn’t make sense.
I double-checked to make sure the company wasn’t offering a Halloween night special.
