Digital Marketing – What Every Business Owner Needs to Know

Understanding the fundamentals of digital marketing is a prerequisite for success in today’s always-on, hyper-connected world. For most companies, digital marketing represents a “brave new world,” filled with the promise of higher efficiency, greater transparency and massive bottom-line impact.

However, most organizations and business owners lack the knowledge and skills necessary to maximize the impact that digital can have on their business. In this course, we’ll provide a thorough review digital advertising theory alongside real-world examples and practical advice in a fast-paced, interactive environment. We’ll review common mistakes digital advertisers make and discuss best practices for avoiding them.
