Continue Your Marketing AI Education with Professional Certification Courses

Artificial intelligence isn’t coming .... it’s already here. 

According to a study referenced by Adobe, “55% of CMOs across five global markets think AI will transform the marketing landscape even more than social media has.”

When you consider the profound impact of social media on marketing and sales, it makes this statement all the more impactful. 

We as marketers must be ready ... ready to continue our marketing education to incorporate AI and to use that knowledge to take our brands to the next level. 

This is just one reason why we launched the AI Academy for Marketers, an online education platform to help marketers understand, pilot and scale AI.

The Academy features deep-dive Certification Courses (3 - 5 hours each), along with dozens of Short Courses (30 - 60 minutes each) taught by leading AI and marketing experts—all available on-demand. 

The Certification program specifically gives marketers the tools needed to understand and execute complex topics, while providing formal credentials upon completion. 🎓  These Courses are intensive deep dives into core marketing AI topics (think business strategy, content marketing, data and analytics, among others). They take an average of 3 - 5 hours to complete, and include video lessons, quizzes, downloadable resources and certificates for Course completion. 

Certifications are available as part of our Academy Memberships for $999/year or for individual purchase for $499 apiece.

Keep reading for a closer look at what’s offered in the Certification program, plus how to get started.

It takes a lot of time and money to create great, consistent content marketing. Luckily, AI can help you to reduce costs by intelligently automating repetitive, data-driven tasks. And, even better, AI doesn’t just cut costs: it can drive revenue by improving your ability to make predictions about your content marketing. For example, it can help you to analyze existing content, choose keywords and topic clusters, construct buyer personas, create data-driven content and more. 

In this Course, you’ll learn how to use AI for content planning, production, personalization, promotion and performance. You will also learn how to:

  • Create intelligent content strategies that target the right people, talk about the right topics, and get audiences to take action.
  • Augment your current content production teams with robust AI tools, so they can produce better assets in less time.
  • Scale your content marketing programs by using AI to create, test, and optimize.

Marketers say that demonstrating impact on financial outcomes is top priority for the C-suite. That said, marketers show weakness in integrating customer information across channels. We often can’t pinpoint the cause of a major business effect. 

In this Course, the experts break down attribution modeling best practices (i.e. how to identify who or what gets credit for a business impact you care about), plus how to set up your own model. You will also learn:

  • The 5 methods of attribution analysis—first touch, last touch, linear, time decay, position based. 
  • The 6C Data Quality Framework—clean, complete, comprehensive, chosen, credible, calculable. 
  • How to structure your attribution analysis correctly

Heads up that required technology includes Google Analytics with goals set up (and collecting data), as well as a free Tableau public account.
