Social Media Marketing explores the growing popularity of using digital technologies to reach consumers. This course aims to further students’ working knowledge on the four zones of social media (community, publishing, entertainment and commerce).

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the social media marketing landscape and its impact on traditional marketing strategy.
  • Explain the strengths and weaknesses of popular forms of social media, including the limitations from a marketing perspective.
  • Apply relevant consumer behavior and advertising theories to understand the popularity and use of these new technologies.
