This course is about the exciting world of digital marketing. The importance of digital marketing has been outlined by Ryan (2017) as:
"Digital marketing has become the most powerful form of marketing ever known to mankind."
The growth of the Internet, in terms of the number of websites online and the number of people with internet access, is unstoppable. It's estimated that there are more people online today globally than offline. As the potential audience grows, so too does the allure of digital marketing. Digital marketers around the world need to understand new ways of understanding and engaging with their customers who are becoming better informed, better connected, more communicative and more in control than ever.
In this course, we are going to look at how businesses can harness the power of online revolution to connect and engage with their customers successfully. One of the key things to remember is digital marketing is not about understanding the underlying technology, but rather about understanding people, how they are using that technology, and how you can leverage that to engage with them more effectively. Yes, today's marketers have to learn to use technology; but understanding people is the real key to unlocking the potential of digital marketing.
