Social media marketing certification will help transform marketer skills

Tadhg O’Connell, Head of Product at the Digital Marketing Institute

When the pandemic hit, marketers scrambled to figure out how to engage with audiences.

Changing consumer behaviour meant that old methods of lead and revenue generation faltered. That’s why the Digital Marketing Institute (DMI) has developed a new social media marketing certification that provides the skills and tools today’s marketers need to succeed.

Digital Marketing Institute to harness social media

During the pandemic, 50% of people bought products on a social platform and that trend shows no signs of slowing down. As a result, traditional and digital marketers need to know how to use social media channels effectively to engage and grow their global audience.

Tadhg O’Connell, Head of Product at the Digital Marketing Institute is optimistic.

“The Digital Marketing Institute’s fully updated and revised specialist certification in Social Media Marketing reflects the ever-changing landscape that is social media marketing.”

“New learning and insights on strategy, social commerce, social apps, video, social platforms, and customer experience as well as practical tools, on-the-job templates are offered.”

“Examples make this the most in-depth program, today, for anyone seeking to deepen their skills and understanding of cutting-edge social media marketing practice.”
