Digital marketing, also called e-marketing or online marketing, is a form of marketing that uses digital channels as its main route for engaging with existing or potential customers (or clients) and other stakeholders. These channels include emails, SMS, social media, web-based advertising, and other digital platforms.

The digital arena has disrupted many sectors (examples include music, hotels, taxi services, and photography). Rapid technology developments often make it difficult for businesses to decide where to focus their efforts.

This intensive one-day workshop is designed for business professionals form small, medium or large businesses to provide them essential skills for understanding online marketing and market research tools. This course aims to provide businesses with techniques to strengthen their competitive advantage in the marketplace.

We will cover an overview of online marketing and help you develop a market research skillset called Social Listening.
