Course Description

The INTERNATIONAL MARKETING DIPLOMA is a benchmark qualification for marketing professionals, entrepreneurs and business owners. The course is based on real case studies that will help you identify and connect with new global opportunities.

**Bonus: Includes a free copy of the following premium Amazon textbooks:

" Luxury Brand Marketing: The globalization of luxury brand cults"

"Growth Hacker marketing 4 for international digital marketing professionals"

The course offers a balance between Academic theory and practical advise which students find both enlightening and challenging. International marketing is the process of anticipating what profitable marketing opportunities there are around the world and the process of seizing these opportunities successfully in such a way that we blend in with the requirements of new host countries.

As we observe the actions of large companies abroad, such as Prada in China, Starbucks in Egypt and Argentina, and also the actions of smaller very successful companies, we realize that International Marketing is more than a competency: It is an art and an acquired skill. Due to popular demand, we also included a special module on INTERNATIONAL DIGITAL MARKETING. New exciting topics include the following:

What is social media and how do we use it? Understanding User-generated content, Reputation management for modern marketers, the link between corporate social media and publishers, owned platforms vs. third party platforms, longtail theory, content authorities and category killers. Tactics that elicit User-generated content, and the social media marketing budget. Start using Facebook, LinkedIn, Alibaba, Twitter and other social media platforms to access various international markets. Do social media marketing like a pro: tactically and strategically.

How to Execute & measure successful Email marketing by Hubspot

Section 13: Bonus: A Free copy of my Luxury Brand Marketing textbook worth $10
26 pages

This publication takes the professional marketer on an exciting journey into the world of luxury goods and services. It considers some of the ways in which the luxury industry has been disrupted along with opportunity analysis of a rapidly expanding Asian, African and international market. It incorporates both conventional and modern practices, for example: Whereas price is directly linked to the perception of quality and luxury, this is not to say that all luxury items or services comply strictly with other elements as described in the above definition. For example in certain market segments, if a luxury brand simply attaches their label to an ordinary product and then raises the price, the perception of luxury occurs, regardless of the fact that a significant difference in quality is absent. Further discussion is also prompted by the issue of relativity, which is a key factor in the attempt to provide a global definition for luxury. A combination of economic and social factors define various segments of luxury products. Due to many factors such as income disparity and cultural values, it would be inaccurate to make any assumptions especially when relativity is discussed.
