Learn how to enhance your communication across multiple digital platforms and be able to target your organizations messages effectively through pay-per-click advertising on search engines and social media channels.
The majority of all of your professional interactions today begin with some form of digital or social media channel. Whether this is through a visit to your website or a social media channel, a response to an email, or a search engine inquiry, you need to ensure that you are communicating your message effectively.
The Digital Communication & Advertising Seminar will teach participants how to improve their digital deployment by ensuring that their website is presenting the right message and is accessible from all devices; how to ensure that their website and other channels can be found through effective search engine optimization; how to optimize email communication to ensure readability, opens and click-throughs; how to target your paid message through search advertising on both Google and Bing search networks; how to capitalize on the targeting capabilities of social networks to deploy pay-per-click advertising programs; and how to best use your digital and social media channels to engage your audience through effective, bi-directional communication.
This seminar focuses on ensuring that participants are able to engage their audience effectively. Participants will learn how to improve the perception of digital deployments and how to use both free and paid digital advertising opportunities to communicate messages effectively to a selected target audience. Each channel will be explored in conjunction with the individual organizations strategy and target audience to determine what techniques and channels should be used to optimize communication and provide the highest return-on-investment. Participants will also be asked to complete questionnaires in advance and during the seminar to provide information on their organizations current communication efforts. This information will be assessed and individual guidance will be provided to each participant regarding the advertising and communication channels that best suits their organizations goals and objectives.
