What is Digital Marketing?
In the past, most companies and brands would spend the bulk of their marketing budgets on traditional advertising such as TV commercials, billboards, or magazine ads. These were effective at getting branded messages in front of many consumers… but not so great at getting people to actionable next steps. The widespread adoption of the internet has led to an evolution of new digital marketing platforms such as commerce-enabled web sites, search, display, social media, online video, and mobile.
These new marketing platforms are popular with companies because they provide accountability on whether their marketing efforts actually drove sales. Tight budgets require that all money spent is leading to results. Local employers need more skilled graduates who both understand these digital platforms and can be critical thinkers who solve business problems with those abilities.
If you are interested in learning these skills and finding employment opportunities in a high demand industry, you consider the Digital Marketing Bachelor of Applied Science degree at Bellevue College. We would love to have a conversation with all interested candidates, but there are a few prerequisites you should know about for this exciting new BAS:
