In this course, you’ll learn how to perform SEO and SEM activities to boost visibility and drive growth. You’ll work with Google AdWords and build strategies to promote a website.

Marketing professionals today have access to incredible amounts of data. The ability to use this
data is what differentiates successful marketing efforts from failed ones. In this course, students
will learn how to analyze digital customer behavior data using a range of tools, and use that
data to test marketing hypotheses and improve customer acquisition.
