  • I would highly recommend Phoenixfire Solutions' classes for anyone seeking to further understand Facebook and the value it can provide.
  • The content of the class was fantastic! The principles and ideas can be easily implemented to improve our current Facebook strategy!
  • This class was extremely beneficial for our organization. We have known about the importance of social media for a long time and have been using it for awareness and events. However, the seminar gave me an in-depth understanding of how all the pieces fit together. I now feel like I can develop a more effective strategy with social media because I feel confident in my understanding of it.
