Module Description

Digital marketing is a data rich environment and deploying effective and sophisticated analysis tools to customer data ranging from the acquisition process to conversion to value generation is part of the remit of the modern digital marketing analyst. Being conversant with, amenable to and comfortable with the usage of analytics to extract insight and drive decisions is going to ensure the strategic fit and role of the digital marketer in the modern organization. Being able to bridge the gap between technical analyst and the traditional marketer confers a differentiating advantage to the learner. The module continues the theme of key metrics and performance indicators as developed in the first module and applies these and other analytical tools to digital contexts such as testing and experimentation, customer lifetime value analysis, segmentation analysis etc. It is intended to be closely aligned to the issues and analyses appropriate to campaign and customer analysis and link to and integrate with other modules of the course such as campaign planning and budgeting. It. will be practically oriented with a view to engaging the learner towards marshalling and mastering various analytical tools towards an in-depth group project and presentation. Following on from the initial module it is intended to further engage the learner with analytics pertinent to the digital marketing context and more specifically to analyse aspects of the customer engagement and conversion. This will be facilitated through carefully chosen examples and contexts and to utilize case study examples to illustrate the applications. The learner will have the opportunity to transfer the learning (facilitated and self-directed) into a tangible format through a major group based project where a management level report is generated based on a digital marketing scenario.
