It is often said that marketing is to selling what plowing is to planting. With marketing you prepare the earth, the soil in such a way that the seeds planted will give much fruit. This is why marketing has always been a main part of a business life by promoting products and services and projecting the company’s ideas and values. But if this is its role then is more than suitable for education; much more so, in today’s digital world!
In the highly interactive modern world, schools often need to communicate their ideas, plans, efforts or even difficulties. Individual teachers frequently find themselves responsible for projects in the school or in ERASMUS+ programs. These projects need to be documented and promoted, showed to wider audiences and disseminated to a variety of message receivers.
The experience of business digital marketing can surely equip a modern educator and the school with valuable tools. This is exactly what this course aims at.
