    CREATIVE CONCEPTS: Fall 2017


    DATES: Thursdays, 6-8pm, 9/14-11/2 (8 weeks)

    TIME: 6:00PM-8:00PM

    INSTRUCTORS: Rob Rich, Art Director/Content Maker/Creative Director

    PRICE: $550 member | $695 non-member 

    LOCATION: Boston TBD

    Everyone works hard. Everyone “knows somebody.” What makes you stand out from other creatives are your ideas. So your ability to concept, and generate ideas on all platforms, stages and screens are what determine if you'll have success in marketing or any field you choose. Whether you’re a current creative who wants to build your portfolio or someone who’s thinking about becoming a creative, this course will help you learn how to come up with ideas and how to bring them to life. You may be an accomplished presenter, be strategic, and have strong interpersonal skills, but at the end of the day ideas rule. Your ideas are your currency. Your ideas will get you a raise, get you promoted, get you a new job and new opportunities.

    This 8-week course will meet once a week in the evening for two hours. Each week you’ll get an in-class assignment, and a take home assignment. You'll work in all mediums, including digital, social, experiential, and traditional, because you must be a hybrid talent. We’ll be discussing how to think like a customer, what an idea is and is not, how to come up with ideas, how to use improv and collaborate, and bring an idea to life. You’ll be sharing your work as you develop your ideas for class assignments and your personal portfolio.

    Social Media Analytics:
    How To Develop, Measure and Optimize Your Social Media Campaigns


    DATE: September 20, 2017

    TIME: 1:00PM-5:00PM

    INSTRUCTORS: 

    Chris Gil, Director Social & Content Systems, Arnold Worldwide  

    Jane Shclover, Manager Social & Content Systems, Arnold Worldwide

    PRICE: $450 member | $525 non-member 

    LOCATION: Arnold Worldwide, 10 Summer Street, Boston


    ABOUT THIS COURSE:

    At this point, you likely have a social media presence. You are creating content for your website but you may not have a real sense of how it is performing.  You are on multiple social platforms without a clear goal in mind. And to complicate matters, you are not entirely sure which metric to look at when evaluating performance.

    This class is designed to help you re-focus and simplify your strategy through the lens of performance marketing. It is broken up into two broad sections:

    •  The first is a “how-to” guide on establishing a new framework to ground your social and content strategy.  This framework will allow for simplification as it related to varied social platforms, new ad formats, multiple key metrics, and loads of data.
    •  The second is a step-by-step guide on setting up your platforms to properly measure performance. These are the fundamentals that enable effective optimization of your social and content campaigns.

    As an add-on, we will also dive into the most under-utilized free services that can be used to inform creation of your advertising campaigns.
