Great ideas and products can be tanked by poor marketing efforts, and the very term itself can be confused with other disciplines like sales and advertising. Marketing is so incredibly valuable yet often misunderstood. At its core, marketing is an over-arching set of dynamic and highly-strategic activities that advance the image of a brand…and it has changed faster than the textbooks! This program will look at the practical definitions, day-to-day practices, guerrilla tactics, and analog and digital tools that make up what marketing is today.
NOTE: By fully participating, you will earn a credential that signifies the time and effort you put into this program. You can include this credential on your resume and post it to your LinkedIn profile.
