Igniting Your Goals with the Digital Accelerator Course


Achieving success in the online world is essential for businesses of all sizes. However, it can be challenging without the proper background to setting up a digital platform and, consequently, mastering the best practices in all major digital channels.

Before we delve into the Digital Accelerator course, it's crucial to understand that the digital marketing landscape is ever-shifting. In recent years, the digital sphere has undergone rapid transformations, especially with the advent of A.I. and emerging platforms and tools, making it difficult for businesses to keep up.

Its constant evolution through personalization and optimization creates a competitive arena where SMBs not only stand against local commerce but also against global players. Therefore, businesses need not only to adapt, but also to stay ahead of the curb leveraging technology to satisfy their customers.

Module 1. SEO & Website Foundations

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) may seem like a complex topic, but it is essential for any business that wants to succeed online. By optimizing your website for SEO, you can increase traffic to your website, and generate more leads and sales.

However, it is not a static field; it changes continuously as search engines like Google update their algorithms. In this Digital Accelerator's first module, you'll learn the latest SEO strategies and techniques to keep your website at the forefront of search results.

Module 2. Organic Content Creation: Social Media and Blogging

Content is king. The Digital Accelerator program will dive you deeper into the art and science of crafting compelling posts and articles that resonate with your audience.

Social Media Platforms are powerful tools for brand building and lead generation through videos and images. One of the main benefits being to drive engagement and foster a loyal online community across many channels.

Blogging is another great way to create and distribute organic content. Blog posts are longer-form content that can be used to educate and inform your audience about your products or services.

Module 3. Paid Social Media, Google Ads, and Landing Pages

While organic content should be integrated to your overall strategy, a comprehensive  use of paid advertising is key to getting the people you want as customers.

Paid Social Media is the quickest and most effective path to target your ads to specific demographics, interests, and behaviors.
Also, Google Ads allows you to display your ads at the top of search engine results pages (SERPs) when people search for keywords related to your business.

And lastly, ensure that your visitors have a seamless and persuasive experience. A well-designed Landing Page can be the difference between a conversion and a lost opportunity.

Module 4. CRM and Digital Marketing

Stay relevant to your customers developing meaningful relationships. At the core of every successful campaign lies Customer Relationship Management (CRM).

CRM systems can be used to store customer data, track interactions, and manage sales and marketing campaigns. Your business email becomes a dynamic channel for delivering personalized content, nurturing leads, and more easily turning awareness to consideration and then to conversion.

Module 5. Amplify Your Brand Via Additional Channels

Expanding your brand's reach and visibility is a crucial aspect for success. Embrace a multichannel marketing approach to maximize your impact.

At this point you will already have a greater understanding of the core organic and paid media channels that will enable you to lay the foundations of success. This module expands on that knowledge, explaining additional channels that can be implemented to drive incremental revenue and new customers to your business.

Module 6. Practical Uses for Artificial Intelligence in Marketing

Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) has emerged as a game-changer in a very short time. Once a futuristic concept, it is now a reality that is revolutionizing marketing practices. AI tools and algorithms can analyze vast amounts of data, automate repetitive tasks, and deliver insights that previously were practically impossible to obtain manually. In this module, you'll uncover how AI can be applied in various facets of marketing.

From chatbots to content generation, harness the power of AI to free up valuable time to focus on strategy and creativity.

Bonus Session

Yes, there’s one more.

With this final module you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a community Q&A session with Simon, where you’ll gain greater insight into the knowledge and skills needed to invest in strategies that work.
