This Certificate in Growth Marketing for SMEs will provide learners with sought-after data-driven digital growth marketing skills to grow businesses and solve user needs. Participants will learn growth strategies, tactics & tools used by the world's leading growth teams. The purpose of this course is to empower people working in SMEs, Microbusinesses, and solopreneur contexts to gain traction and growth for their business using digital tools and a growth mind-set.
Level 5 certificate or equivalent or relevant practical experience as per TU Dublin RPLE policy.
Participants will learn to help their business stand-up, start-up and scale-up using a growth marketing approach. The syllabus for this module is designed to enable participants from a non-marketing background to acquire, convert and scale their customer base. Central to scaling their business will be an awareness of how digital technologies can be leveraged in an agile, and cost-effective, way. Participants will be introduced to a large number of cloud software tools, many of which are free SAAS types, which can enable their company to actively pursue a digital transformation journey. Participants will be joined by expert mentors and industry leaders as they complete a growth marketing plan for their enterprise.
The key to the success of this course will be the development of a truly flipped-classroom approach to learning. A strong emphasis will be made on developing practical learning opportunities that participants can bring to their own context of upskilling or reskilling to bring marketing skills to organisations who have a gap in this area.
