MKTG 326: Customer Acquisition for New Ventures

The focus of this course is on the strategies and methods used by early-stage companies to acquire customers (through outbound or inbound marketing) and to activate and retain them (i.e., to encourage repeat behavior and/or increase the frequency of interaction). Throughout the course, we will examine topics such as search engine marketing (SEM), content marketing, affiliate marketing, social media campaigns, mobile applications, freemium strategies, and the use of web analytics for tracking customer acquisition and conversion. The focus will be mainly on digital marketing channels, and the emphasis will be more B2C than B2B. Instruction will consist of case discussion, exercises and simulations, and guest lectures, with students working in groups to apply their learning to improve the process of customer acquisition.

MKTG 532: Persuasion

The aim of this course is to provide insight into the psychology of persuasion.

In each session, I will share classic and cutting edge research on persuasion emanating from the fields of social and consumer psychology. These insights will be organized around a few basic principles. We will then work together to brainstorm and practice the application of the insights to real world persuasion settings.

MKTG 576: Digital Marketing

There has been a rapid evolution of digital means of communicating with consumers and advertising to them, driven by changes in technologies and consumer behavior. Readership of traditional print media has gone down dramatically, and television is consumed very differently now than even a few years ago, with the advent of digital video recording and streaming video platforms. This has led to a dramatic growth of marketing using digital platforms. Furthermore, a variety of avenues for digital marketing has emerged, including display advertising, search advertising, advertising on online video platforms, advertising and other forms of engagement on social networks etc. A recent trend has been the rapid growth of mobile platforms, which include these different avenues also available. An integrated view of using these different media to market to consumers is important to effective digital marketing. With the rapid acceptance of numerous "Big Data" technologies by large enterprises, online marketing is also evolving to incorporate a customer-centric view rather than a campaign centric view. This course will explore these issues.
