About the course

According to Adweek, 81 percent of shoppers conduct research online before making a purchase. As a marketer you should meet prospective customers and engage the loyalty of current customers where they are most likely to notice.

Content marketing drives sales, customer loyalty and brand awareness by providing potential customers the information they are using to evaluate your brand, product and service before they ever speak with a sales representative.
