+    Social Media Marketing 8 Online $89.99 View

In technical terms, social media refers to a variety of Web-based applications (such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, et al) that facilitate (1) communication and collaboration amongst users of the Internet and (2) the creation of “user-generated content” in the form of words, pictures, audios and videos. However social media represents much more than this simple definition; social media signifies nothing less than a revolution in the ways that people communicate, consume media and conduct business. Many businesses are rethinking entire marketing strategies in order to focus on this new world known as “Web 2.0”. Social media tools such as social networks, blogs and podcasts are now commonly used to market products and services to consumers.

This course provides an overview of social media and its impact on the marketing process. This overview includes descriptions of the various forms of social media and profiles of the most popular social media websites. This course also introduces the concept of social media marketing and discusses how you can use social media to market your business, promote your brand and influence your potential customers. Finally, this course provides a step-by-step guide for CPA’s and other professionals to utilize when launching a social media marketing campaign.


+    Valuations: Businesses, Securities And Real Estate 3 Online $29.99 View

This course covers valuations ranging from businesses, bonds, preferred stock and common stock to real estate. Business valuation is essentially a present value concept that involves estimating future cash flows of a business and discounting them at a required rate of return.  The value of a bond is essentially the present value of all future interest and principal payments.  Stock price may be expressed as a function of the expected future dividends and a rate of return required by investors.  The Gordon's valuation model reflects this process.  Real estate valuation involved several rule-of-thumb valuation methods.
