Foundation Certificate in Marketing

Foundation Certificate first-timer

Welcome to the wonderful world of CIM study! We can help you pass first-time. It’s that simple. You’ve probably already been warned about The CIM’s rigorous academic standards, so we won’t harp on about them, we’ll just demystify them and help get you through it.

 

Here are our recommendations for first-time Foundation Certificate students:

 

If like most of us, you’ve got a busy life, your first challenge is likely to be how to fit study into and around your work, family, fun and other commitments. We can advise you on how to plan your revision, when to start and the ideal order of subjects to follow for maximum success and minimum pain. Call us on 01784 463057.

 

And now you’ve joined The CIM, we can help you make sure you get the most out of it, by pointing you towards essential study resources and services they provide, both free and fee-based. Just call us for advice.

Syllabus Tutorials
Have a one to one telphone tutorial with an expert tutor to cover all the essential syllabus knowledge you’ll need. Maybe there’s an aspect of the theory you’re struggling with, or you’d like an overview of the whole syllabus? Tutorials can be on the phone, or face to face (where possible), designed around your needs so call to arrange your help.

Assignment Tutorials
Choosing the Assignment route might have sounded like a laid back option at first but when your Assignment deadline looms large you’ll feel anything but relaxed. Many first-time Foundation Certificate students get going earlier, quicker and happier with an Assignment briefing tutorial. We can also offer an assignment draft review. You can enrol on our full Assignment Programme, especially if you are resitting your Intro Cert Assignment. To find out more, go to the pages for Exam support or Assignment support.

We are very human and have had plenty of experience helping students pinpoint where they went wrong as well as supporting them to build a personal study plan and boosting their confidence.

  • Knowledge of the underpinning principles of digital marketing and the skills to undertake digital marketing planning.
  • Skills and knowledge to understandng the fundamental planning concepts for an online organisation, as well as key factors of implementation, measurement and evaluation of successful campaigns.
  • An appreciation of the evolution of digital marketing from a peripheral element of organisational marketing to one that is now the hub of customer-centric communications in a multi-channel environment. You will gain expertise to deal with this shift and make the most of new business opportunities this evolution has created.
  • Knowledge of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Per Per Click (PPC), types of online advertising, email marketing, viral marketing, online PR, affiliate marketing and social media.

The Units that form the CAM Diploma in Digital Marketing are:

  • Digital Marketing Essentials (DME) - covers skills and knowledge necessary for digital marketing within organisations. The four sections are: Digital Tools, Planning, Implementing and Monitoring. The teaching and assessment covers SEO, PPC, ad types, email marketing, viral marketing, online PR, affiliate marketing and social media.

  • Digital Marketing Planning (DMP) - provides candidates with the skills and knowledge to understand the fundamental planning concepts for an online organisation together with key factors in implementation, measurement and evaluation of successful campaigns.

This unit will consider a range of environmental factors both internal and external (e.g. Legal) that will shape and influence the digital marketing planning process. Various e-business models will be explored. In addition, similarities and differences covering the mix elements in traditional and digital marketing will be addressed along with issues such as relationship marketing, permission and consumer concerns around privacy, trust and security.
  • Marketing Consumer Behaviour (M&CB) - This double unit aims to provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary in managing marketing communications and brand support activities within organisations.
