Digital Marketing + Storytelling Course in KL, Malaysia.

The principles of digital marketing are rooted in copywriting and content marketing, and in digital communication formats which emerged from email technologies in the 1970s. Since then, the practice of digital communication has undergone several iterations, evolving into the current state we know and use today.

With the growth of networked social technologies, especially in the smartphone era, digital marketing has evolved into a robust pillar of communication, built on reliable, sustainable principles, practices, and applications.This course teaches you how to write for digital media audiences by drawing on these methods.

Taught through a combination of academic rigour and industry practices relevant to ASEAN governments and business, this digital marketing course helps you to (i) write and distribute engaging content for digital platforms (ii) appreciate why and where digital markets integrate with social media channels, and (iii) approach digital literacy and non-linear texts with greater insights, depth and precision.

Print has been around for more than 500 years, and books for far longer. By comparison, desktop publishing in barely 50 years old. Little wonder then that most organisations, when creating digital content, still adopt techniques for print consumption. Is this wise? Digital marketing comprises several terms, the more popular ones being internet marketing, online marketing, and web marketing. These distinctions are the result of regional and geographic terminologies and their related taxonomies of the field. At its essence, however, digital marketing remains an approach to exchanging ideas, building communities, and transacting with online and offline entities through digital practices. Non-linear content, i.e. content that is not laid out and consumed in print formats, necessitates its own reading strategies. Likewise, above-the-line and below-the-line marketing methods are grounded in approaches that work for digital spaces, but not necessarily in physical environments. This distinction between print and digital landscapes requires a shift in thinking as to how we approach the creation and commodification of content in digital markets and mindsets.

Course Takeaways.

From ideas to implementation, this digital marketing course is an investigation into planning, producing, and — whenever necessary — pivoting digital content to captivate and retain audience attention. This course studies the semantic and semiotic relationships extant between textual and graphical literacies that create content across digital spaces. You will learn how to use these relationships to build brand awareness, create consumer engagement, and grow an audience base by applying established rules of copywriting, content marketing, and web-writing. In doing so, you will be able to write and develop content across a number of digital platforms, from social media and web channels, to blogs, apps, and AR/VR devices. At the end of this workshop you will have a deeper appreciation for the theories and the applications of digital marketing, and confidently implement, as well as defend, your rationale for creating and curating non-linear content. There are no conditions or pre-requisites for attending this course.
