"Incredible hands-on learning experience"

I have a background in Graphic Design... Read More

Our instructor, Jenna Brucoli, was fantastic. She is incredibly knowledgeable and always had perfect real-life examples to give us to help us better understand the material.

We started our final projects the 2nd or 3rd week of class so that we were continuously practicing what we had learned. This was incredibly helpful and important in my learning.

I made fantastic connections and friends through the course. I highly recommend this course!

"Good introduction to advertising on social media"

I’ve completed two courses at BrainStation now – Digital Marketing and Social Media Marketing. While Digital Marketing provides a good (high level) overview of many digital channels (including a week on social media), it was helpful to dedicate the full... Read More

The course brings you through the full cycle of campaign creation; from identifying your segment, setting objectives, ad creative and copy, and implementing campaigns. Getting set up with Facebook Business Manager and working through the tool in class and with the instructors’ tips was great! I’d say it’s a pretty good balance of learning and application.

I have huge appreciation for the instructions, Alex and Amber! They enhanced all of the course material with their own experiences and insights from being professionals in the industry.

I recommend the course for people new and/or somewhat familiar with social media marketing (I’m in marketing myself but don’t work in digital marketing), but it might not be advanced enough for someone already with a hand in paid social.

"Worst Experience Ever"

1) The content that is taught be BrainStation in their web development program is not even adequate knowledge to lend a job in their affiliate company Konrad.

2) There is hardly any support after you complete the program. If you bring this up and keep... Read More

3) There is hardly any Database and Authorization covered in the course. Which is one of the keys.

4) Waste of Time, and Money!! Double loss!!

5) Last but not least, there is 0 Job Assistance! ZERO!!

"A challenging, but excellent course for aspiring Search Engine Marketers"

I had a great experience taking this 10-week Search Engine Marketing course remotely at BrainStation. The class size was small (~10 students) and we had both a lead professor and an assistant professor, so I always felt supported. The instructors were... Read More

I’m already a Sr. Marketer (that focuses primarily on Direct Marketing), so I took SEM to broaden my knowledge within the overall field, and to be able to better understand and communicate with the Performance Digital teams I frequently cross-functionally collaborate with.

This course was challenging, but in the best way possible. Each week we completed about 2.5 hours of lecture time and ~1 hour of time with a partner (in a Zoom breakout room) to practice what we learned in class. My only feedback would be that I felt the 1:1 partner activity time was a bit too much — I would have preferred more interactive activities with the full group to interact more with the rest of the class.

This course requires focus, dedication, and discipline to truly take in the knowledge and work through the in-class assignments that lead up to the final assignment. I’d recommend this course to Marketers, bloggers, and business owners looking to increase conversions and stay on top of their competition.

Full disclosure: I was given complimentary access to this course in exchange for my honest opinions.

"Awesome Digital Marketing course at BrainStation!"

Just finished my BrainStation course - Digital Marketing!
What an amazing course. I have learned so much in the last 10 weeks. It was definitely time well spent.

This was actually my 7th course that I’ve completed with BrainStation. So far I’ve completed... Read More

During the Digital Marketing course, I have had an opportunity to learn how to create an effective digital marketing campaign. From creating User Personas to Search Engine Optimization (SEO). From what makes a good website to utilizing Google Ads. All incredibly valuable content/concepts/tools and taught by two amazing instructors/industry experts. Plus I had a chance to work and share with a cohort of fellow students from all types of industries and backgrounds across North America.

What I have enjoyed about each BrainStation course is the opportunity to stretch my knowledge and skills across the digital space. I work in Information Technology for a Digital Telecom. Everything I have learned across all 7 courses has been directly relevant and current to the organization I work with.

Why 7 courses across a broad spectrum of disciplines, you may ask? I’m an Agile and Lean Coach and Trainer. I work with all disciplines - from design to engineering to marketing. Understanding and appreciating the work that people in specific disciplines are engaged with, allows me to meet students and colleagues where they are in their Agility journey. Applying Agile and Lean concepts and ways of working can differ depending on the type of work that you’re engaged on. BrainStation has provided me with the knowledge and skills to support the people that I support. Thank you BrainStation!

What’s next on my BrainStation learning journey? Hmmm….so many choices...iOS Development, Search Engine Marketing, Social Media Marketing...so many awesome courses to choose from.

I highly recommend BrainStation courses. BrainStation on-line courses are equally as great as the in-class courses. Plus you get to do it from the comfort of your own home :) So what do you want to learn next? Look no further than the talented instructors and awesome courses offered by BrainStation!

Starting off I’d like to say that the instructors are working in the their field and have the knowledge to answer the questions that come up. Pair that with the clean layout of the BrainStation website and it is user friendly.

Having said that I have... Read More

Based on my overall experience so far, I wouldn’t suggest this to anyone having to pay out of pocket. For $300 LinkedIn Learning will provide detail hands-on examples while they cover each topic. The only difference is you will not have a live session to ask questions.

"Because of BrainStation I'm one step closer to becoming forever employable."

Enrolling in the User Experience Course at BrainStation was one of the best decisions I made in 2019. I was thinking about studying UX for ages and, like many folks, I did extensive research and slowly compiled a list of schools. What sold me on BrainStation... Read More

As a graphic designer and art director, I was already doing some UX, but it was intuitive. I took the class hoping it would formalize my instincts into a structured design process. I also thought it could help me be more effective in my current role as an art director, and help get some side projects off the ground. It did!

The lead instructor, Jenna Brucoli, was superb. We covered tons of material in 10 weeks, and she led us through this marathon with enthusiasm, encouragement, and great humor. Not only did she give us 110% percent during every class, she also met with many of us individually. Her advice and guidance were invaluable. This is a BrainStation strength—your instructors are industry professionals who are committed teachers willing to share their experiences.

I also learned so much from my fellow students. What a fascinating mix of backgrounds and ages! Even after switching from an in-person format to online (because of the COVID-19 pandemic), the collegiality and camaraderie continued. For me, it confirmed that the digital skills taught at BrainStation are the new universal skills every professional should have in their toolset.

I can't wait to continue my learning journey with them!
