  • I kept waiting for some good and more detailed info but it just never came. She said a lot "We'll cover this later" but then the info she gave was superflual. Overall it's good basic info about how the PR world works, so if you know nothing about it it can be useful. Anyway, I was expecting more details and also printed documents we could download as there isn't any document to download in this course. When she talked about the editorial calendar I wish I could have it already printed so I could follow the speach instead of having to pause it every time to copy it. She gave lots of reasons to why you should consider doing one thing or another (ex. to write a blogger, magazine, etc) but not so many info on how to do it. If only it had written information and some more examples (like writting emails) it would've been great. But don't get me wrong: there is SOME GOOD AND VALUABLE INFORMATION on the course, but I just don't know if it's worth the price.
  • This class was so jam packed with useful and current information. It deals with issues that did not even exist as recent as last year. I made drastic changes to my social media outlets and forums, that have greatly improved my fan base. Andreea is an amazing roll model, teacher, and example of success.
  • I watched all three days of this course, and it has helped my mom and I in so many ways. We started a soap business in late 2014, and nothing we did worked. So we are currently regrouping, and with all the information we learned from Andreea we feel so much more confident this time around. Anyone looking to do great things with their company needs to see these 3 courses. Creative Live great decision on having Andreea on here.
