This free online digital marketing certificate begins by introducing you to location targeting: location-based marketing allows organizations to target consumers at a personal level with online or offline messaging based on their physical location.

Beacon Marketing offers companies unique and interesting ways to engage with customers. With the aid of beacons, brands are growing their presence by creating multiple touchpoints.

AdBlocking is a software capability for blocking or altering online advertising in a web browser or an application and you will conclude this digital marketing training by learning about the history of AdBlocking, trends, and industry response to AdBlocking. Understanding how people feel about your brand helps you keep your marketing and product development efforts on track. It also allows you to respond right away to positive or negative posts.
