Digital Marketing Strategy Training

Digital marketing training courses

Like all our content and advice, our training courses are all about helping you take the right actions to improve results. We offer:


In-company digital marketing training courses with a difference

The difference is that our trainers are not full-time trainers. Instead they’re active consultants with solid training experience too. Combining the two will give you a training workshop focused on the needs of your company and blending learning with practical advice and ideas.

A typical one or two-day workshop reviews all opportunities of digital marketing based on examples from your site and communications compared to competitors, but also inspiring with out-of-sector examples. If you have a specific need we can deliver a more focused workshop on a particular challenge. Recent workshops have included:

  • Practical digital marketing for communications team
  • Running integrated digital campaigns
  • Digital marketing for senior managers
  • Improving online sales for Ecommerce
  • Mobile marketing and Mcommerce
  • Social media and content marketing
  • Email marketing
  • Improving Search Engine Optimisation and Adwords
  • Using Google Analytics to improve marketing results

I just wanted to thank you for your efforts in delivering training workshops for the Marketing Academy this year. Your workshops have had the highest demand in the Academy.

An integrated approach to digital marketing training

It’s important to us that when the course ends you have not only learnt new skills, but you can directly apply it to your Business the very next day.
Our process for in-company training follows these steps to make sure the training is tailored and makes an immediate difference to your company.

The learning process

We use an established approach to deliver effective training which has been developed by Dr Dave Chaffey since he started training in Internet marketing in 1995. The key elements of our approach are:

  • Global best practice We incorporate concepts from a range of e-marketing commentators and best practice is illustrated from examples from in-sector and out-of-sector companies
  • Do make me think! New thinking is prompted by relating in and out of sector best practice to current organisational practices to identify new ways of working.
  • Practical The training content gives practical insights about developing and executing plans and campaigns which can be applied as soon as the participants are back in the office to increase campaign response.
  • Applied Example campaign plans, creative and metrics from HSBC campaigns will be used within the presentation and activities to illustrate best practice and areas for improvement.
  • Knowledge sharing It is recognised that much good practice already exists within your organisation. The workshops are interactive and will facilitate sharing examples related by experienced staff.
  • Action-oriented-active learning Each participant will be encouraged to develop a personal action plan.
