Paul Slack joined Splash Media with more than 20 years of direct marketing experience. He got his first taste of web marketing consulting in the 1990s as the Internet began to make its presence felt in the business world. Those early days gave him a strong foundation in search engine marketing/search engine optimization (SEM/SEO). Paul built on that as CEO of WebDex Media Group, a Dallas-based firm founded in 2000 that provided strategic planning, SEM, web-based lead generation, online public relations, and customer acquisition programs.
Paul helped Splash Media become one of the fastest growing, most experienced social media marketing firms in the country. In early 2012 Paul added the title of President of Splash Media U, taking the reins of his company’s social media marketing training and certification program. Today he has started a new agency called Vende Social. He is also in demand as a featured speaker on social media and search engine marketing, and is author of SOCIAL RULES! for Entrepreneurs and Small Business: A Common Sense Guide to Social Media Marketing.
“The staff is always available to help and will go to extraordinary lengths to make sure you have the tools you need to succeed. Duncan went as far as to become an administrator on my Facebook account to help me straighten out my page. The staff is definitely the best part of Splash Media U.”
“I appreciate your personal attention that will be given to me in showing me the best way I can incorporate social media into my businesses and just having a full understanding of social media in general.”
“I am really enjoying the complete system. From live lectures, classes, tools and resources – talk about getting value!!”
“Can I just state up front how much I have enjoyed this? I am really impressed with the entire program. I am a complete social media novice and, to date, have been reluctant to open any Social Media account. Thanks for empowering me to jump into this exciting new opportunity. ”
“Splash Media’s training changed my life. I would not be working where I work now if I hadn’t taken what I learned and adjusted my career accordingly.”
“It’s taking the ‘how to’s’ that I learned initially to a much deeper level… it’s exactly what I needed! I can select the videos I need and learn at my own pace, and I’m not dependent on a live instructor. Having this kind of structure helps me ‘build my knowledge base’ and keeps me on track with my goals.”
“Splash Media U is absolutely the best investment I have made for my business. I’ve taken several well known courses from social media and internet marketing gurus so I was skeptical at first, but none of those come close to the clear and practical training I received from Splash Media U. On top of that it’s obvious that the Splash Media U team cares about my success because they are always responsive and supportive.
Knowing that I have the largest and most experienced social media agency in my corner has given me so much confidence when I talk to prospective clients that my business is booming. If you are intimidated by technology and feel overwhelmed by the social media world, I highly recommend enrolling into Splash Media U. The material is delivered in such a professional and easy to digest manner that within a very short period of time you will find yourself feeling much more confident and ready to launch your social media efforts.
If you have some social media knowledge and are looking to take it to the next level then I also highly recommend Splash Media U to you. Social media is the air that Splash Media breathes and for such a highly acclaimed and experienced organization to open its doors and teach their methods is an opportunity you should not let go by. Splash Media U even provides all of the documents and forms you will need to use throughout the process of gaining new clients to providing detailed monthly reports. That alone is worth it!
Thank you Splash Media for helping me make my dream come true!”
“I gained much info about social media and its purpose on the webinar. Up to the webinar it was something I wasn’t interested in. I talked to Kevin, my student liaison, yesterday and signed up for the monthly plan so I could continue learning and utilizing it”.
“I love the Splash Media U system. It helps me find business and to do social media marketing for my customers as a service. I have tried other social media training and found Splash Media U far superior.”
“This is the highest quality, best delivered information we’ve found…and we’ve gone down a lot of stupid roads!”
