The abundance of data available to marketing professionals has pushed the definition of what it means to have a successful marketing strategy. Success can now be measured by the degree to which customers are not only brought into the funnel, but also engaged and retained without active intervention. In other words, your marketing strategy can now be adjusted so that your product sells itself. This course focuses on how to automate the design and processes of your marketing machine so it can pull customers organically. You will start by identifying which products can and would benefit from a growth marketing strategy, then learn how you can calibrate product, price, promotion, and place to create a self-sustaining chain reaction that enables your product to sell itself. You will then explore the three stages of AI — supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning — and how you can leverage them in your growth marketing strategy. Ultimately, you will walk away with a clear view of what successful growth marketing implementation can look like in your own organization.

Using paid media, such as buying ad space on well-known websites, may be the fastest way to promote a product or service on digital platforms. In addition to display ads, paid media includes initiatives like search engine marketing, email marketing, video marketing, social media ads, and mobile ads. 

This course provides a tour of opportunities and strategies associated with these various paid media channels, and guides you in drafting a paid media marketing plan that addresses your own marketing objectives.  

It is recommended to only take this course if you have completed Understanding the Digital Marketing Landscape and the Customer Funnel or have equivalent experience.

Marketing within your own digital properties—such as your organization's website, blog or social media pages—is an effective way to build deeper relationships with existing customers and attract the attention of new ones.

You will learn more about  content marketing, search engine optimization, social media “fan pages”, mobile apps, and virtual reality apps and assess the relevancy of owned media initiatives for your own marketing objectives. By the end of this course, you will have a plan outlining a strategy for your own potential use of these channels.
