At the department of Business Informatics, University of Potsdam, we offer this summer the seminar “Digital Marketing Strategy”.
As consumers spend more and more time on online and especially on Social Media platforms, business and non-for-profit organizations are rededicating their marketing budgets away from traditional TV and radio advertising to social media channels. However, many businesses struggle with their online and Social Media presence. Reflecting these developments, the goal of this course is to familiarize students with the fundamentals of online and Social Media Strategy and the mechanics of digital marketing campaigns. As part of this course, students will be expected to perform an in-depth situational analysis for a specific product, company or social cause, including existing weakness, strengths, threats and opportunities. Building on this, students will be required to develop a social media strategy for their industry partner and implement it as part of the original social media campaign using one of social media channels (e.g. Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Blog, Instagram). Development of original “value”-content is a critical component of this course and may include blog posts, videos, photos, and infographics.
