[The Becoming a Storypreneur course] was very helpful and I was lucky since my project got to grow its online presence as we were doing the course. So I got to see an immediate payoff and the specific results associated to it.
The online classes were very well structured with weekly lessons, powerful exercises and regular guest speakers. It was a fantastic opportunity to engage with other students across Canada as well. Annelise’s personable approach made everyone feel comfortable to share and ask questions. The digital marketing tactics I’ve learned over the past few months will definitely be utilized on a daily basis.
Annelise is a fantastic educator who conveys information clearly and effectively, and who genuinely cares about the success of her students. Annelise taught me incredibly valuable SEO and content strategy skills that I have taken with me on all of my subsequent projects. Annelise is so supportive and insightful, I feel privileged to have worked with her.
I was in the first Swedish cohort of the Storypreneur programme, and was deeply impressed by Annelise’s knowledge and generosity. Not only did the course exponentially expand my understanding of the digital marketplace and opportunities, but it was given in a context that reflected the power of community that she was teaching us. That’s just smart!
The Storypreneur course provided a solid foundation for understanding how to best use social and digital media platforms and channels to develop content, build audience engagement from the ground up and respond to analytics. I feel I have benefitted professionally, as the course provided a path to a new way of engaging with consumers to enhance my business. While I may not be doing this work personally moving forward, I understand which questions to ask of the people I’ll be hiring for the job.
The Storypreneur workshop is an extremely valuable experience for anyone who wants to create a film or story and reach an audience. Taking our feature film Hunting Season through the program allowed us to define the niche audience and develop a plan to reach them.
