What is Digital Marketing Communications?

Marketing to where audiences are and anticipating where they're heading: Digital Marketing Communications is creating a dialogue with your audience that builds a community around a brand or organization. It's all about building trust and providing customers with long-term value so that they become advocates who bring you more customers. Digital marketers must have a thorough understanding of search engine optimization, organic and paid search, display marketing, social media marketing, marketing automation, content marketing, multi-channel analytics, always-on campaigns, and desktop and mobile user experiences. Understanding these digital marketing platforms, and using the data they provide to develop more impactful marketing campaigns is central to the WVU Digital Marketing Communications degree.
