This course will first introduce you to Integrated Internet Marketing or I2M. I2M is a structured approach that combines marketing strategy with Internet technology. It promotes the creation of a strategy that uses the full range of Internet mediums such as text, audio, video, and hyperlinking to help you achieve your marketing goals. You will then learn how to make sure that your business' entire web presence is cohesive in order to communicate a consistent message to stakeholders.
Next, you will learn about measuring effectiveness in ecommerce promotion and purchase. You will be shown how to examine the Web as an advertising medium, using established theoretical models of consumer and industrial buying behaviour.

Finally, you will learn how to move the customer from being a passive Internet surfer to an interactive user of the medium.
