Digital marketing is an exciting area of marketing practice. In this course, we cover the what, why, and how of major current approaches, including online listening and monitoring, search engine optimization, search ads, email marketing, and participating in social media. In addition to those specific topics, three key messages are woven throughout the course: stay current with developments in digital technologies and platforms, use new tactics to support strategy, and put measurement systems in place to track performance. The course is designed to get students to think like digital marketing professionals, and to give experience with industry-relevant hands-on assignments and exercises.
