Marilyn is a social media marvel. She is very knowledgeable of all social media outlets and given the fast-paced nature of social media, it is impressive that she is always up-to-date on the latest tactics. Marilyn makes sure everyone in her courses understands the material and no questions remain unanswered. Marilyn is easy to reach before and after your course should any additional questions arise. Her outreach system, bootcamp.com, is efficient and allows Marilyn to keep in touch with all of us in her courses and share relevant material when she sees fit. I have taken more than one course with Marilyn, and plan on taking many more.
