Certificate in Content Marketing

Amplify your digital voice with the content consumers crave

The audiences you need to reach with your digital marketing message are more savvy than ever.  No longer satisfied with hearing from you in traditional ways, they have touchpoints with you across countless media channels—many of them highly personalized to their tastes and content preferences. Knowing how and where to engage your audience with a consistent stream of relevant, persuasive content has become an integral skill demanded of anyone working in digital marketing. The high level of specialization required to do this effectively is the reason employers struggle to find qualified content marketing experts.
