Digital and Social Media Program

Digital and Social Media Understand how an effective digital and social media strategy contributes to overall business success, and know the tools and techniques to execute and measure your strategy deployment.

The Digital & Social Media Program is designed to assist organizations and individuals with capitalizing on the meteoric rise of ‘digital’, regardless of industry. Ensuring that there is a correct complement of traditional marketing channels with digital alternatives provides the most efficient and effective marketing mix.

Whether a government organization, a non-profit entity, or a for-profit business, there is a growing role for digital media. Providing opportunities for greater reach, increased connectivity, better monitoring, and increased return-on-investment, digital channels are being chosen over traditional alternatives at an increasing rate.

A little more than a decade since the first Facebook account, channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and others have transformed the way we communicate, but questions remain. How can social networks best be put to use? What’s the best way to engage with audiences? Is a specific channel a good fit for your organization? The goal of the Digital & Social Media Program is to help individuals and organizations with answering these questions.

The core of the Digital and Social Media Program (DSMP) are the three multi-day training seminars that are designed to provide attendees with the skills and ability to adress key areas of opportunities and needs within all types of organizations.

The following seminars can be completed in any order and participants can choose which seminars suit their needs.
