Main themes
The digital environment is characterized by an abundance of data available in the company's systems, but also outside on social networks, ecommerce sites, or competitors sites. These data once collected, assembled, and analyzed appropriately can provide information on consumer behavior, activities of competitors, or companies' performance.
Today more than ever, It is essential to monitor the company's performance on its website, on social networks, across all its digital activities. The analysis of such digital data requires both technical and analytical skills, coupled with a strong business acumen and a sense of marketing and management.
One of the key skills of the (digital) marketer of tomorrow will be the ability to identify pertinent data that can help in its thinking, deploy the data collection tools, select the analytical method of this specific digital data, and to implement the analyses necessary to build actionable business recommendations.
The primary objective of the course is to provide the knowledge and tools to identify, collect, and analyze relevant and useful data to implement and use the knowledge and results to create or adapt the marketing strategy of the company:
  • On one hand, around its performance and its competitive position.
  • On the other hand, around clients' behavior in general and more particularly in the digital environment (e-behavior).
  • The course will also focus on understanding the opportunities and limitations of different web analysis tools available for the business.
