I am proud to report that I have today completed the Google Digital Garage qualification in ‘Online Marketing Fundamentals’ The online course is provided by Google and comprises of a 26 unit study, with unit tests and a final test at the end of the course. Course material includes building a website presence, email marketing, organic and paid advertising/marketing on search engines and social media, plus basic analytics understanding. I completed the course over a year, in my spare time and estimate the studying took about 13 hours in total. The course offers an excellent introduction into online marketing for both a small business owner and digital marketing consultants such as myself.

I have been looking for an email marketing solution for the GMB Northants Community Branch newsletter and I have ended up back again at Mail Chimp. I used Mail Chimp briefly last year, but we are considering it for GMB Northants Branch Members newsletter, it seems to be a great product and the fact it is free for mailing lists up to 2000 is fantastic – I do love a bargain.
