Course Description

Marketing is changing.

Marketers are now required to be more analytical, more technical, and take ownership of a larger part of the traditional customer funnel.

What does that mean?

It means that your traditional education and your traditional understanding of marketing are becoming obsolete. Companies are no longer hiring marketers to sit and watch over ad campaigns; they’re hiring marketers that can not only plan, design, and run their own campaigns but also influence and understand their products on a much deeper level.

In this course we’re going to focus on both core marketing fundamentals but also on the more advanced growth marketing strategies that are becoming more and more in demand. We'll cover the basics that any marketer should know and then expand into day to day actionable skills you're going to be required to have. In the second portion of the course we'll focus on how you can set yourself up for success in the marketplace and how to find, vet, and lock down a job in Marketing or Growth.

After taking this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply basic, intermediate, & advanced growth techniques to your campaigns
  • Understand the basics of persuasion & advertising psychology
  • Design and start your own email advertising campaign
  • Design and predict your company or product's growth trajectory
  • Apply the traction model of distribution to your venture or firm
  • Design and run your first Google AdWords & Facebook campaigns
  • Understand the basics of company and product branding
  • Put together a personal portfolio that will increase your likelihood of being hired
  • Know what to expect during interviews for marketing positions

This course is for professionals within the following business functions:

  • Anyone who is interested in marketing and wants to start a career in it
  • Anyone with a basic familiarity with marketing concepts that wants to specifically learn "growth marketing"
  • Anyone who is interested in running more efficient campaigns and employing professional long funnel approaches to their own ventures

    About the Expert

    Evan Kimbrell

    Evan Kimbrell

    Hi, I'm Evan Kimbrell. Thanks for checking out my course. Currently, I'm the Founder, Director of Sprintkick, a referral based full service digital agency based out of San Francisco. Over the last 4 years, I've overseen the development and launch of over 100 web and mobile apps. Clients range from 1-2 man team startups bootstrapping their initial idea, to multibillion dollar Fortune 100s like Wal-Mart, Dick's Sporting Goods, & GNC. Previous to Sprintkick, I worked as a VC for a brand new firm called Juvo Capital, based out of L.A. I spearheaded the firms expansion into Silicon Valley deal flow and into Consumer Web tech category. Previous to working for Juvo, in the long long ago, I was a co-founder for a educational software startup called ScholarPRO that raised a ton of money and then spectacularly blew up (in the bad way). Before it exploded like the Death Star, I went through 5 tech incubators (yes 5) with Tech Stars, Excelerate Labs, MassChallenge, Babson Venture Program, and Sparkseed. I'm an avid AirBNB host for the Fishermans Wharf district of San Francisco. My space has the #1 search ranking for my area, has hosted over 200+ people, and is currently booking out 18 months in advance :) Over the last year I've helped multiple other hosts get their properties listed and maximize their price per night. Results range from an extra +50% in price for established hosts, and +400% for brand new hosts. Hope you enjoy my courses!
