‘Scratch’ is a graphical programming language developed by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Media Lab and the best part is that it is a long-running online project that helps kids and teens learn how to code for free! Over the course of these lessons we’ll use ‘Scratch’ to create games using interactive stories, animations, music, art and more! You will then be able to share your creations on the web and become part of the community of ‘Scratchers’ who are often remixing each other’s work and adding new content every day!

‘Scratch’ is an excellent place to begin if you are interested in learning code. Instead of typing lines of text, as you do with traditional coding, you drag coloured blocks and join them together to build programs. So if you’ve always wanted to create your own game or you’ve been thinking of a simple project that you want to develop then this is the course for you.

Module 1: Your Digital Marketing Foundation – Designing for Conversions

Online Marketing otherwise known as Internet or Digital Marketing, is introduced in comparison to more “traditional” marketing techniques.

Does Online Marketing work? Can it be used effectively for all business types? Can I employ these techniques successfully? The answers to these questions are a categorical yes but unfortunately obtaining tried and tested practical understanding and straight forward techniques to exploit the opportunities in the digital space are extremely difficult and not relevant to day to day business needs.

The main practical methods are introduced, the importance of marketing goals and alignment with business and sales requirements are also discussed.

Finally, some common misconceptions and buzzwords are dispelled while critical but simple online marketing rules are presented.

Module 2: Social Marketing and ORM – Closing and Acquiring All At Once

We all have a view on social websites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, and even Google Plus. Love them or hate them, they are here to stay. But if you are a disbeliever, you cannot argue with their sheer size. For instance, Facebook has over 1 billion users and 1 million advertisers. This is just the tip of the iceberg and the potential is truly limitless.

In this lesson we look at how businesses can maximise the opportunities of effectively using social web assets across multiple providers. How to build social assets is shown but also how to keep them relevant and updated without overloading valuable and scarce business resources. Software that can assist with this is also presented

Forums and Online Reputation Management (ORM) is also discussed. How to deal with negative reviews on online forums and build a platform for dealing with rogue and valid negative reviews are also presented.

A must for anyone aiming to impact on business marketing in the 21st Century.

Module 3: The Benefits of Blogging (On Demand)

Unique content as well as a regularly updated element on your webpage are not only critical to successful SEO optimisation but can be the foundation of a websites digital marketing presence. However, there are some very common pitfalls that are all too often not known, forgotten or even ignored.

In this lesson we will look at the various benefits of having a blog on your site or by submitting as a blogger to other sites. We will go through what a blog is, how it impacts SEO, how it can give your site a new look and what hidden benefits there are to having a regularly updated blog posting area. We will also go through the different types of blogs, how to create them, how to host them as well as some of the most popular tools out there for managing them.

We will also look at some examples of successful blogs already out there and discuss how blogs can fit into our overall Digital Marketing Strategy.

Module 4: eCommerce - Converting 101

One of the many great things about online revenue generation is that it is instant. If a customer wants to buy something immediately, there are many technology and payment services there to facilitate this for business owners. Nonetheless, online marketers have to consider their particular markets and the client journeys to facilitate maximum percentage returns through their particular web assets.

This has to be launched in a smart way so that the promoter is in a position to monitor the performance of their eCommerce strategies and methodologies. In this eCommerce lesson we take a look at what is required to make your website have a sales optimised structure before you spend time, money and effort acquiring customers.

Module 5: Pay per Click Advertising (PPC) – Acquiring the Right Leads for Less

In the old days the marketer would put ads on billboards, TV, radio and other traditional media to build “brand awareness” with unclear ideas in relation to return on investment (ROI). With the advent of online advertising and particularly pay per click (PPC), we now have the tools to spend only on what delivers results beyond the click and through to the sale or other objectives

In this lesson, we show the online marketer how to set PPC goals, how to choose and use search keywords in the pay per click campaign, how to write search ads, how to employ suitable geographic targeting, how to use ad frequency capping, exploit re-marketing along with the importance of Relevance and Quality Scoring.

Display advertising and Cost Per Thousand (CPM) are also evaluated in the context of a successful PPC campaign.
A lot to get through but worth the effort!

Module 6: Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) – Acquiring Leads Long Term (On Demand)

Search Engine Optimisation is simply the science and art of getting your web presence to appear higher on search engine results pages. For example, you may want your product or service to appear on page 1 of Google in your country when someone searches for that product or service.

So what can we do to achieve this? Are there any magic bullets? The answer to the former is “quite a lot” and the latter is “Unfortunately, no”.

In this lesson we introduce “On-Site” optimisation that looks at aspects of your web presence that includes, meta-tags, header tags, keyword densities and suitable website development techniques.

The “black hat” techniques are dispelled and “Off-Site” techniques such as “back linking” are also evaluated.
Some common Dos and Don’ts are highlighted with the Ultimate Rule of SEO explained in a common sense way regardless of your level of experience

Module 7: More For Less - Online Affiliate Marketing Made Easy – Acquiring Leads Risk Free

Online Affiliate Marketing is often overlooked by smaller businesses in the broader context of Online Marketing. However, it is a multi-billion €/$/£ process that is successfully used by companies of all sizes. What is it? It is another way of saying partner business development. How do we use it online?

In this lesson we introduce Cost per Acquisition (CPA) methods to only pay for paying customers introduced by partners. We compare this to other partner incentives including Cost per Lead (CPL), Cost per Click (CPC) and the older Cost per thousand (CPM) incentives.

Setting up your partner platform to attract suitable partners, working with partner networks and being an attractive partner are also presented in a practical sense.

Once this module is completed, all students will understand the power of partner referrals and how to get started.

Module 8: Converting More for Less with Email Marketing

How do you automate mass lead acquisition? How do you ensure that the customer experience is optimised for the individual? How do you nurture your leads? In an online context people are much more sceptical and have less loyalty. So how do gain this trust so that you maximise your sales conversions? This is where mass tailored communications and marketing automation become absolutely crucial to ensure that maximum returns are achieved, that in turn propels further business growth.

Module 9: Data Driven Marketing and Sales for Maximum Return

Data drives everything you do in Digital Marketing and Digital Sales. Data Determines Decisions. Data Dictates Spend. Data Drives Sales. Here we delve into analytics to maximise your return on investment and track your success.

Do you know how much you can spend to acquire a client? Do you know your cost per acquisition and all subsets of this including CPL, CPC and even CPM? Do you know your average revenue per lead? Do you know your average revenue per user? Here we get under our hood to look at how we have been successful at digital sales conversions in many industries and how this data driven digital marketing will change the way you do business

Module 10: Your Strategy - Building a Platform for Success

Developing a structured and workable digital marketing strategy is crucial to achieve the successful realisation of your business goals.

In this session we combine all what we have learnt in the previous modules and discuss the next steps and practicalities of employing the knowledge you have gained for the benefit of you, your career, and your business.
