Skip About this course

Digital marketing is a major component of marketing today. This course will equip you with practical digital marketing skills to help you build your business.

You will learn about the digital marketing landscape and how digital technologies can be used to help businesses identify opportunities and minimize risk. Case studies will be used to demonstrate how digital supports business objectives, and how it can set enterprise apart.

It’s essential to gain a greater understanding of your target customer so we’ll teach you how to create a user persona which will help you identify the different demographics, behaviours and needs of your consumers online.

Finally, you will learn how to apply your new skills to future marketing activities by developing your own unique digital marketing strategy capable of outperforming competitors and achieving a set of business objectives.
