Module 1: Your Digital Marketing Foundations – 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 Online Reputation Management

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: 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 4: 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 5: Email Marketing – Reach, Engage and Convert

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 6: Affiliate Marketing – Developing Strategic Partnerships Online

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: 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
