What makes this course unique?

This course was originally developed for a multinational client, to help their teams understand the value of an integrated channel approach to marketing. The separation between ‘traditional’ and ‘digital’ advertising is a myth; all your channels and touchpoints need to be approached from the perspective of a holistic brand experience.

Consumers don’t separate digital, physical and broadcast touchpoints, and evaluate them as such – they regard them as proof points or deal breakers on a journey that either ends with brand loyalty (and commercial success) or disappointment.
