Course Summary

Students on this course will consider the crossover between traditional and digital marketing, learning how online marketing techniques can complement offline marketing campaigns. This theory will be supported with reference to well-known examples; for instance, certain big supermarket Christmas television adverts and the social media campaigns that support them.

The Inner Workings of Marketing

Students will spend part of this course developing an understanding of marketing strategy and how to plan effective market research, including how to segment groups of people into appropriate target audiences. Classes will also examine the psychology behind marketing and what makes people buy, teaching students an overview of the consumer decision-making process, which every marketer must understand in order to plan an effective campaign.

Throughout the course, students will have the chance to analyse a number of famous marketing campaigns, learning about how such campaigns are put together and debating what it is that makes them successful. They will also critically evaluate the Conventional and Digital Marketing strategies and campaigns of an organisation making such recommendations.
