Social media marketing empowers organisations to promote their websites, products, or services through online channels. Social media allows organisations to engage with much larger communities than that available via traditional advertising channels. It is the future of marketing, and just about every role in any organisation requires some understanding of social media marketing. This course provides an overview – and the how-to – of social media marketing, search engine optimisation, search engine marketing, web analytics and e-mail marketing.
