Description for 2024/25

This module deals with the practical implication of digital marketing. This is carried out through incorporating a range of case study examples from industry in order to offer a perspective of how marketing theory is applied in business contexts. Within this module you will critique contemporary case studies in digital and direct marketing, be involved in online interactive learning methods and actively involved with social media. The course material lays the foundations for students to take further independent learning to earn an additional certificate in Digital Marketing from the Institute of Direct Marketing.

The module aims to provide examples of the practical application of digital and direct marketing. It builds upon the student┐s ability to critically analyse, plan and evaluate a programme of digital marketing from their second year module of Digital and Marketing Communications. Students will be encouraged to enhance their understanding of social media tools to engage in their learning. Through engaging with social media students will be encouraged to assess the impact of professional digital strategies that have been discussed by several key speakers on the module. These key speakers will be industry experts from a range of industries.
