Acing Digital Marketing on a Shoestring Budget

The digital revolution has radically disrupted customer engagement and the pandemic has amplified this demand even further. People expect you to be online, provide timely content and be responsive — even when you are asleep. So, how can you be where your customers are without spreading yourself too thin? How do you create content that people voluntarily choose to engage with? How do you set goals that keep you on track, rather than drive you away from your purpose? And most importantly, how do you maximise the return on your marketing investment?

Over the years, we have learned to work on a shoestring budget. We know how essential strategy is to achieve goals effectively. Especially in digital marketing, where you have to be effective and profitable. We are pleased to teach you how to put a plan behind the digital marketing madness to make an impact while improving the bottom line.

This online training course teaches you how to apply our 5-step process to extend customer reach, engagement and conversion via the various digital and social media channels. The online training features a mix of theory and practice allowing you to work on your organisation’s digital marketing strategy at your own pace and when it is convenient for you.

  • MODULE 1: Introduction and welcome
  • MODULE 2: Digital revolution and digital trends
  • MODULE 3: The 5-step digital marketing process
  • MODULE 4: Step 1 – Your voice

  • MODULE 6: Step 3 – The marketing hourglass
  • MODULE 7: Step 4 – Content
  • MODULE 8: Step 5 – Engage
  • MODULE 9: Review and what’s next

Find Your Voice Template

In today’s noisy world, you need a compelling message to resonate with people. That’s why we provide you with a stepwise Brand Narrative template to help you personify your brand so that you can tell stories with impact.

Persona Build Template

Too many brands aim their messages at ‘everyone’. You must be able to define your audience for your marketing to be effective. Our Persona Build template helps you to articulate who your most viable audience is, where you can find them, and how you can serve them.

Marketing Hourglass Template

Our Marketing Hourglass gives you a framework to set objectives, choose the right metrics, and enable you to measure the effectiveness of your marketing efforts. This will allow you to measure your Marketing ROI better than ever before.

Content Marketing Template

Knowing your voice and your audience is one thing but creating content that resonates is another! Creating contest for the sake of creating content is a sinking ship. You need clarity of what works and what doesn’t and engage your audience with content they are CHOOSING to hear from you.
