As you may know (or not) I got made redundant through reorganisation at my old employer roughly 2 months ago now.
But one of the good things about that was that part of my redundancy package was money for further education. So I was allowed to choose which course I wanted to go to and they would pay for it.
So tonight I started with a course on online marketing and social media. Since I also created the website for the cryptoworldzug association and we are getting a bit more serious and are expanding (but still operating at a loss) I thought that this course might be a nice addition to the skills needed to run that part of the association.
You can find the Website on www.cryptoworldzug.io (be aware that it is a work in progress and it is my 1st website design ever)
So here I was at this group and I got selected to do a short presentation on my website (there were quite a few crypto people in the crowd to my surprise) and the sad thing was that facebook was one of the first topics to come up as an online advertisement channel. I guess with 1 billion accounts we still cannot just write them off. I guess I will just have to combine my crypto knowledge with the old ways and get out wiser then I was before.
On the other hand, its nice to be back in school (never thought I would put something like this in writing) and to be improving my skill set. Being unemployed it does not hurt to improve yourself and get an official certification for that.
So if all goes well I will be some sort of marketeer in 8 months time. I know this does not replace a full university education but everything that can add to your store of knowledge is a good thing in my book.
So I am putting down that book and downloading the E-version so I can hopefully add a few chapters of my own.
