Social Media Marketing for Business
Digital Marketing Strategies Curriculum
Join the Waitlist!

On-line marketing is no longer thought of separately from what was commonly identified as ‘traditional’. As audiences move to technology to communicate, on-line marketing has just added to those traditional channels as choices for an organization to  participate in. An in-depth understanding of computers is not required to have an on-line presence and it becomes more of translating what organizations already know, and do, in their marketing efforts to see how that knowledge is applicable to  moving on-line.

This program addresses more than just Social Media, as it also explores not just what is available, but how to select and integrate myriad choices into a manageable strategy. Just as choices were made about radio, newspapers, flyers, mail and t.v., we now have Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Threads and Instagram. More than anything this program addresses the question “Where are our customers, and how do we get ourselves in front of them?”

By completing the curriculum and the associated exercises, the program participants will be able to:
Understand and employ tactics to enhance an Internet presence including a website
Evaluate on-line marketing channels
Decide which on-line channels to participate in
Develop and maintain an on-line presence
Understand the advantages and drawbacks of on-line marketing channels
Tie an on-line strategy with the overall marketing strategy
Understand on-line advertising – (Facebook and Ad-words)
