The Digital Marketing Workshop is intended for practitioners at every level of digital marketing. Whether you're in the trenches or serving as CMO, there's always more to learn.

Attendees will walk away with the knowhow to create and execute world class digital marketing campaigns and practices on a real world budget. If you've been looking for an opportunity to hone your skills as a marketer, then this is your chance.

This four hour long workshop will be split into three 90 minute sections with 15 minute breaks in between each section.

In section one, we will examine the current state of digital marketing, how it got there and where it's going. This part will be heavy on the strategies that most often inform solid execution in digital marketing.

Section two will focus on tactical execution. This is the process of turning your strategy into live campaign. We also will cover a number of easy and affordable tools that can help to streamline your execution.

The final section, will focus on quantifying results. Using analytics, we will show you how to measure the efficacy of your initiative. With these techniques, you will be able to determine not just whether your campaign was successful, but how and why it succeeded (or failed).

- An understanding of basic analytics, marketing terminology and social media platforms is helpful.

What to Bring:
- The instructors will make workshop materials available online for attendees, but you should bring paper and a pen to take notes and sketch out ideas. You should also bring real-world problems we can share and brainstorm as a group.
