About the course
Digital marketing has become increasingly fragmented and complicated as mobile use skyrocketed, social media exploded, and new connected devices emerged over the past decade. Marketing teams have had to look beyond traditional models, which focused primarily on customer acquisition, and into a new realm, which became known as growth marketing. Growth marketing is an expanded, comprehensive set of tactics that encompasses the entire customer funnel—from acquisition to engagement to retention—and relies on analytical prowess, including sophisticated data mining, to steer marketing strategies and programs. This course will provide you with a framework for thinking about growth marketing, walk you through specific tactics for each stage in a growth marketing plan, and teach you the fundamentals of measuring and analyzing growth. We will focus on such topics as building an online acquisition strategy, activating and converting users, driving core product strategy to increase user retention, and building a high-performance growth marketing team. The course will include a mix of lectures, guest presentations, and experiential learning using mobile-focused case examples. Students will apply strategies learned in the course to create a comprehensive growth marketing plan for a mobile app of their choice. This course can benefit both experienced product and marketing leaders as well as people new to the field.
