The course is designed for marketers and covers a broad range of digital marketing concepts in a highly interactive manner. We will start with an overview of the state of digital marketing today, followed by a review of digital marketing tools and techniques. We will then introduce a set of frameworks that can be used to pull these digital tactics together into integrated and measurable marketing strategies and plans. To end the day, we will apply our learning by working together to solve a real-world digital marketing brief from a 'guest client' visiting the class.
