Champlain's online marketing courses encompass the top skills needed by today's business leaders.

Marketing has the power to shape and influence individuals, communities, and society in myriad ways. Technological innovation continues to change the way we market to consumers, and the ways in which consumers interact with products and services. In this course, students will explore and critically examine the impact of current issues and emergent technology on enhancing the customer experience while at the same time applying foundational marketing approaches to build strategies and tactics for an organization of their choosing.

One of the main responsibilities in marketing is being able to identify the appropriate target markets for a product, service or idea. When the right audience is identified, it is easier to gain their attention and fulfill their needs so they become a returning customer. In this course students will apply consumer behavior theories and practice to explore various ways today's marketers determine their target audiences, how they create messaging that engages those audiences and the ways in which marketing and sales utilize consumer behavior to create lasting customer relationships.
