The digital revolution may have started more than 15 years ago, but it’s the ongoing digital evolution that keeps marketers on their toes.  This evolution has dramatically changed the way we communicate, from new entrants into the workforce all the way up to the corporate CEO. Today, 92 percent of U.S. companies use social media for marketing and 87 percent say it has benefited their business in the last year.1

These rapid and continuing changes have left many mid-level marketing and communication professionals poorly equipped to strategically integrate the many digital channels into their marketing mix. Having a comprehensive grounding in digital marketing and a holistic understanding of the best practices for new media is critical for success today and in the future. Understanding how your target audience uses technology is a key foundation for solid marketing.

This seminar will provide you with a comprehensive groundwork in the rapidly changing world of digital marketing and prepare you to strategically choose, measure, and implement the right digital marketing components into your overall marketing plan.
