DIGITAL MARKETING MASTERY
Become a Highly Paid, Highly Sought-After Marketing Professional.In Only 10 Weeks
Marketing Has Changed.
Once upon a time, businesses could rely on their local Yellow Page, newspaper, or radio ad rep to drive new leads and clients through their doors. And if they offered a valuable product or service and treated their customers with respect, their business would grow.
Those days are long gone.
Today, businesses are forced to navigate dozens of different channels to both acquire and communicate with new customers and existing customers, and needless to say.
.they can't do it alone.
That's where YOU come in.
Today, companies need skilled marketing professionals who are able to:
Leverage new media channels such as Facebook, Google, Twitter and YouTube to acquire new customers and clients.
Architect "conversion funnels" that seamlessly and subtly convert strangers into leads, leads into customers and customers into raving fans.
Establish a "value first" content marketing strategy that enhances brand authority and generates free, organic traffic.
Build and monetize large email subscriber lists.without resorting to spammy tactics.
Engage with customers via social channels such Facebook and Twitter to grow a brand's reach and credibility.
Optimize search networks like Google, Amazon, Pinterest and Yelp, so the brand can both be found and accurately represented..
Track and measure the key metrics that matter, so decisions can be based on data, not hunches.
Run split-tests that improve conversion rates and reduce acquisition costs over time.
And by the end of this class, you'll possess all of these skills, and so much more.
Each week for 10 weeks you will master a new digital marketing discipline. Along the way you'll complete "Mini-Projects," get instructor feedback and receive Specialist Certifications after successful completion of each unit exam. Here's how each week will break down.
UNIT 1: Introduction To Digital Marketing Strategy
Before you can begin promoting any business, there are important questions that need to be answered, namely: Who is my customer? What's the value we bring? And, what's the best way to reach them? In this opening unit, we'll answer all three of these questions, and outline the "Customer Journey" so you can articulate the role your brand plays in it. We'll also determine which of the 3 available marketing goals your brand will pursue FIRST, so you can deploy a FOCUSES marketing strategy the right way, the first time.
UNIT 2: Conversion Funnels and Customer Value Optimization
Most businesses have some sort of "funnel" for generating leads and converting those leads into paying customers, but very few have a truly OPTIMIZED funnel that maximizes immediate average order value while simultaneously reducing overall acquisition costs. That's where you come in. In this unit, you'll learn how to architect a "conversion funnel" that gives businesses exactly what they want: MORE customers, that are MORE valuable, all while spending LESS to acquire them.
UNIT 3: Content Marketing Mastery
Content marketing isn't an "optional extra".it's an essential aspect of any modern digital marketing strategy. In this unit, you'll learn our "Value First" content plan that transforms ice cold prospects at the top of the funnel (TOFU) into loyal buyers of even your most expensive products and services at the bottom of the funnel (BOFU). You'll also learn how to leverage "other people's content" to generate free, organic leads while simultaneously building your brand's value and authority.
UNIT 4: Paid Traffic and Customer Acquisition Mastery
Companies today must have scalable traffic campaigns that produce new, qualified customers from scratch if they want consistent growth. In this unit, you'll gain the skills you need to help brands and businesses leverage paid traffic channels such Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other demand-gen platforms to grow their customer base.without breaking the bank.
UNIT 5: Email Marketing and List-Building Mastery
Email marketing consistently generates highest ROI of any marketing activity, but sadly most businesses are doing it wrong (or ignoring it completely). In this unit you'll learn the three types of email campaigns and how and WHEN to use them. You'll also learn how to architect the perfect promotional calendar, and how to use automated email marketing to literally "sell while you sleep." By the time you finish this unit, you'll be able to effectively monetize any email list list, while simultaneously increasing engagement with your subscribers.
UNIT 6: Social and Community Management
Thanks to an ever-changing social landscape, consumers have altered the way they voice criticism and praise, find and consume information, and, most importantly, they have changed the way they buy. Successful brands must learn to adapt to these changes, and put plans and processes in place to listen, influence, network and sell in this environment. In this unit, you'll learn to assess business goals and employ sound social media marketing practices to meet those goals. You'll also be trained on the most up-to-date social media marketing practices that work TODAY, and will continue to work TOMORROW.
UNIT 7: Search Marketing Mastery
With all the "noise" in the world today, it's critical that brands and business get found when a customer or prospect is looking for them. It's also critical that your brand is shown in a positive light when the right person is looking for a solution that YOU provide. And that's exactly what you'll learn how to do in this unit. You'll learn how to leverage search channels such as Google, Amazon and even local channels such as Yelp to ensure that your brand gets found.and that when it's found the message your prospects see is a positive one.
UNIT 8: Marketing Analytics and Data Science
Are your decisions driven by data or hunches? Logic.or fear? In this unit, you'll learn how to setup a basic analytics plan, and determine the key metrics that your brand needs to track on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. You'll also learn how to setup simple dashboards that alert your brand to potential problems and opportunities BEFORE it's too late.
UNIT 9: Testing and Conversion Optimization
Conversion Rate Optimization and Split Testing are two of the most identifiable marketing tactics in the industry today. Unfortunately most marketers claim to be doing CRO, but are merely relying on hacks and tricks. In this unit, you'll learn a repeatable process that increases converting actions from the traffic you already have by leveraging assets you've already created. In short, you'll be able to produce immediate results.making you immediately valuable to any business or brand.
