Omschrijving In simplistic terms, digital marketing is the promotion of products or brands via one or more forms of digital media. However, digital marketing is merely adding digital channels to the media mix; it is about integrating digital into all facets of marketing. Major companies like Unilever and ING increasingly shift their marketing budgets from traditional to digital media which unerlines the growing importance of digital marketing. Beyond this, a rise of new digital-only market players (i.e. Zalando) can be observed. The aim of this course is therefore to show what new challenges and opportunities marketers face in the digital age and provide students with strategic and analytical skills to (1) understand the fundamental constructs and principles of consumer behavior in the digital age, (2) describe the implications of the digital revolution for business model formulation, (3) compose a customized digital marketing program for a given organization, and (4) track performance indicators for digital marketing activities.
