What counts as ‘digital marketing’? How do traditional media and digital media work together? How do information and communication flow in outbound vs inbound marketing?
This basic intro module keeps things clear and practical, so you get a good general overview.
This module is all about planning and creating content that really gets through to people. You’ll learn how to time, design and place content for maximum impact and efficiency. Finish up by learning what works by tracking and measuring content performance.
Great social media marketing means growing and engaging a community of fans around what your organisation does. To do this you first need to define your audience and actually give them something to care about. By the end of this module, you’ll feel much more confident in bringing a brand story to life across multiple social platforms.
SEO is focused on one critical goal: getting to #1 on the first page of Google results, and staying there. The journey starts with developing keyword strategies, understanding the kind of content that attracts users, and the technical side of optimising rankings.
Pay-per-click advertising using Google Ads is a cornerstone of many digital advertising strategies. Learn how the bidding auction system works, refine your targeting strategy, and make tweaks to optimise your campaigns. And of course, make sure you’re getting value for money by tracking conversions and measuring your return on investment (ROI).
Learn how to set up, manage and optimise your YouTube channel. Target, test and develop your use of the Google Display Network and get creative with visual formats.
Your organisation’s email list is an incredibly valuable asset. Learn how to put it to work the right way, whilst sticking to the laws and regulations around marketing automation and data management (privacy and security). Get to grips with the basic steps in creating an email marketing program, from managing data to maximising open rates and more.
What goes into making an awesome website that’s loved by users? Find out in this module. You’ll gather the skills to create a simple, polished and professional WordPress site that’s properly optimised. Not only will your site look great, it’ll help drive business in a meaningful and measurable way.
What can your analytics reports really tell you? How can they change the way your organisation does business for the better? Answer these questions, plus cover the practical steps of making the most of Google Analytics, in this data-focused module.
Your digital marketing efforts can’t be random. You need real goals and plans to justify the time and money you’re putting in. This module will show you how to construct a clear strategic vision, and go from ideas to action plans including budgets and key performance indicators (KPIs).
Digital Academy has partnered with the Digital Marketing Institute- the global certification body for digital marketing education and courses are exclusively designed by expert digital practitioners. On completion, your course carries relevance, recognition and pedigree – highly sought after by your employers.
It’s USD$1,299. This includes all the course materials, support services, the initial exam fee, and a year of free DMI membership.
There are around 30 hours of course content, including videos, interactive multimedia, reading, and more. You don’t have to do it all at once, of course; you get up to 24 weeks to complete the course in your own time. As a guide, the average course completion time is about eight to ten weeks.
As an accredited Digital Marketing Institute course, your qualification will be recognised by employers and colleagues all over the world. Upon successful completion of the exam, you’ll officially be a Certified Digital Marketing Professional.
This course has been credit rated by the Scottish Qualifications Authority. It is NOT an Australian Qualifications Framework qualification.
Anyone is welcome to apply. You don’t necessarily need current professional experience in digital marketing to get started (though it’ll help). From business owners and new graduates to marketing professionals and career-changers, you’ll feel right at home. The only thing you need is a keen interest in digital marketing!
There is one formal assessment – a three-hour exam. The exams are run by the official testing partner, Pearson Vue. You’ll be able to take the exam at any one of their global network of test centres or you can do it online.
There are three sections in the exam. You need to get at least 60% to pass. Please note that if you need to re-sit the exam, you will need to pay a fee (directly to Pearson Vue) when you book in for your repeat attempt.
This course is designed for independent learners, but that doesn’t mean you’re completely alone. As well as your Digital Academy trainer, you’ll have access to tons of self-directed online learning support. On the learning management system, you’ll get downloadable materials, practical exercises, further reading and resources for extra curious learners, and more.
It’s not ‘technical’ in the sense of coding, programming and computer science. Rather, you will be focusing on the practical, commercial aspects of online marketing.
