Learn digital marketing essentials, the five stories of social change and identifying your customer avatar.
Twenty-first century marketing builds communities around businesses by being useful, valuable and relevant to their ideal clients. There is a huge opportunity to leverage your impact story to gain attention and business. For start-up founders, digital marketing is often not a specialty but something you need to take responsibility for early on, so it’s crucial you understand what works and what doesn’t and a focus on reaching the right audiences with your story.
