The last 20 years has seen a rapid change in the way that businesses market their products and services.

The internet has changed the marketing landscape forever. Online marketing offers new and powerful ways to reach consumers throughout their buying cycle.

Despite the immediacy and efficacy of the internet as a marketing platform, digital marketing is still seen as a 'dark art' to many. And it's no wonder. Phrases such as marketing funnels, conversion rate optimisation, search engine optimisation and pay per click all seem like yet another skill that the small business owner must get to grips with.

This one-day course is designed for small business owners and future digital marketers who want to understand how to develop an integrated digital marketing strategy, from formulation through to implementation.

You'll learn how to use digital tools to help you to gain more business from your customers with this tutor-led, interactive course that's designed for people that aren't yet comfortable delving into online marketing.

Who is this course for?

Small Businesses
