Yes, most media outlets have been cowering victims to the economy and issues stemming from it, but there are still lessons to learn from the smarter ones out there. So while it's true the Tribune filed for Chapter 11 back in 2008, after that it excelled at embracing social media (starting blog-network ChicagoNow, for example) -- and now the Tribune Co.'s SEO and social-media division 435 Digital is offering courses and workshops on its specialties to the public. The topics are all exceedingly relevant for any business owner.
The one-off courses run all through June, touching on everything from Facebook and SEO for businesses to creating a social-media strategy for your company. The mid-June introductory course costs $40, and the meatier offerings range from $125 to $150. The full list of courses being offered next month (which starts tomorrow, for the calendar-averse) can be perused here.
