NPTC Group of College’s Business Development Unit has increased their course offering by adding brand new digital marketing courses to their already varied and impressive course portfolio. These courses offer a foundation of digital marketing skills and tools to bring your business into the 21st century.
With technology now an everyday fixture in our lives along with a global pandemic where more of us were working remotely and glued to our screens, a good digital marketing strategy is now even more important than ever. The Office for National Statistics stated that as of 2020 46.6 million adults accounted for daily or almost every day usage of the internet, that’s a 5% increase in just the last three years.
Digital marketing is all about talking to your audience and connecting over a product or service therefore with the evolving changes this now means having to talk to your audience where they are already spending a good portion of their day, on the internet and social platforms.
The brand new courses will be expanded upon to incorporate all the elements of digital marketing ranging from Social Media Marketing, Digital Analytics, Advertising, Content, Planning, Search Engine Optimisation and more.
