Experience and Impact

With increasing numbers of businesses going online and the expanding consumer appetite towards eCommerce, it begs the question:

  • How are different businesses using digital marketing to grow?
  • Does every business use similar strategies?
  • What are the different business models out there?
  • What to look out for as I scale beyond my borders?
  • What is the difference when it comes to an eCommerce business, a service-based business or even an entity trying to fight for a cause?
  • Should an eCommerce business focus on having its own brand.com? Would presence only on the marketplace suffice? When should we consider a hybrid approach?

If you are curious about these, you are definitely asking the right questions. In fact, these are some of the burning questions that our learners have, and you will be at the right place to find these answers.

During this programme, you will be taken on a journey to discover the many different channels and aspects of digital marketing.

The first part of this programme is meant to help you understand how each channel works, the expectations you can have for them when you use them right, the potential pitfalls to avoid and how to evaluate these campaigns. These will be substantiated with examples and case studies.

We will then be taking on a higher altitude point-of-view to look at everything in a bird’s eye view – how can different channels come together to propel your business forward and bring you across borders?

The second part of this programme will bring you deeper into eCommerce as we look into brand.com and marketplaces. There will be an exciting hands-on session where you will be building your own store on Shopee as you learn about the dos and don’ts with us.

Here you will also understand the considerations you need to look out for when deciding which platform to choose for your brand.com, whether should you go for brand.com, marketplace only or a hybrid model and much more.

Through this 2-part programme, learners get to develop a marketing mindset and learn to see the world from the lens of a marketer.
