Boot Camp Digital works with hundreds of global clients each year providing top-rated digital marketing training workshops. As we look ahead to 2019 there are a number of popular workshops that show some trends in digital marketing capability development. As the value of digital is no longer in question, businesses are investing in their people to grow their impact and results.
In working with corporate clients on their 2019 Digital Marketing Capability Plans, we’ve found a number of top training programs emerge. Content is gaining importance but the Foundations and Fundamentals still matter.
While many businesses are more advanced in digital, the reality is that most of us still haven’t mastered the foundations. Digital marketing foundations is an excellent level-set program for an organization wanting to get everyone on the same page and speaking the same language. This isn’t a beginner program – it is a practical program that can be adapted for any organization.
As businesses begin to get a handle on the foundations of digital marketing they often find that their content isn’t getting the results they would like. In the past we discussed and debated creative to determine what we ran. Now with digital we can test content to make sure that it is actually performing well. This highly interactive program allows businesses to actually test their content to maximize their performance and results. Testing content is vital to growing the success of your digital marketing.
While businesses are investing in digital many aren’t getting the best results possible because their content just isn’t good enough. In digital attention is scarce and businesses must earn attention to drive impact. Content optimization focuses on crafting content for a digital-first environment based on best practices. Many businesses struggle to create engaging content for each channel, and this workshop provides a hands-on opportunity to craft compelling content that gets results.
As marketers have a solid understanding of the foundations, many want to take their knowledge to the next level. Our digital marketing mastery workshop is a more advanced program that goes beyond the foundations. This program includes actionable strategies, tools and tips to get better results. We usually tailor this program to match the industry and focus areas of our clients.
