Course Description

Singaporeans are a highly-connected net savvy population, driving commerce online. SME’s and corporate brands are rapidly recognising that a simple online presence is not enough. Consumers review and differentiate products services online. E-commerce is the best “routes to market” with great retail and brand uplift opportunities.

F&B outlets and MNC producers of FMCG, can no longer rely on television, as consumer in-market audiences have already moved online. The solutions are performance based in-market, engagement and conquest channels, with audience and buy-point segmentation, requiring performance, KPI and ROI analysis.  The challenges facing employers is how to bridge the new skills gap, within company competencies and capacity building.

This intensive two-day Digital Marketing Analytics (Beginner Google Analytics 4) training course outlines the features, advantages and benefits of digital marketing analytics. With theory and practical exercises, designed to enhance data planning and capture capabilities, producing actionable insight.

The web analytics module also zooms in on the BIG WHYs customers do the things they do on a website such as abandoning a shopping cart, spend very little time on a website, and more.

Furthermore, trainees will learn how to track and measure the effectiveness of both online marketing channels (SEO, Online ads, Social Media, Content) and offline marketing channels (flyers/brochures, TV, in-store promotions) with Google Analytics 4, and make important business decisions such as directing your marketing dollars to the best performing channels.

Through intelligent quantitative and qualitative analysis on key user behaviour metrics and deploying industry-leading analytical tools to gain a clear perspective of modern-day consumer buying journeys, Digital Analytics teams will be able to make better business decisions to achieve business objectives.

Audrey Wu, Esquire

“This is my second course with Equinet, I am thoroughly amazed at how the trainers condensed the course content into something that was easier to digest! For this Google Analytics course, I was surprised I was even able to follow through the class with not much difficulties (given that I am not a data savvy person).”

“Even though I’ve been using GA for years (self-taught and learned from former managers), I learned a lot more from this course as it is much better than the videos offered in Google Analytics academy.”

Ina Jasni, Integrated Health Information Systems

“A course that exceeded my expectations overall. Detailed and patient guidance by the trainer – who not only taught us how to use GA, but also shared plenty of current industry insights and relevant real-life examples.

For more information on all available course funding/grants/subsidies, you may check out this FAQ page.

What is the difference between this course and the Advanced Digital Marketing Analytics course?

The WSQ Digital Marketing Analytics course covers the fundamental concepts of Google Analytics 4. 

The Advanced Digital Marketing Analytics course goes into more detail covering more advanced concepts of Google Analytics and preps you for the Google Analytics Individual Qualification (GAIQ). This certification is also awarded by Google Analytics Academy and it demonstrates a high level of proficiency in Google Analytics.

You may go through and review both course outlines in detail and contact us should you have any specific questions on this.

Do you offer career assistance for job seekers looking to get into digital marketing?

Yes. We offer career assistance and job placements through our digital marketing hiring and career assistance programs. Visit our career portal for more information.

If I have any questions after the course, can I consult the trainer?

Yes, you may contact your trainer after the course. There are other post-training support channels such as the Equinet Academy Insider Community where you may network with like-minded individuals and industry experts and live Ask Me Anything sessions where you may seek advice from a subject matter expert.

What is the difference between online classroom and in-person classroom learning modes?

Typically, in a traditional classroom, classes are conducted with 1 trainer to 20 – 24 learners in a cluster or classroom seating format. Group discussions, group presentations, lectures, peer-to-peer coaching are all conducted face-to-face (in-person).

In an online-based classroom, lessons will be delivered via a video conferencing software, Zoom. Lectures will be conducted via screensharing, while group discussions and group brainstorming will be conducted via “breakout” rooms (individual virtual rooms) to split up discussions into smaller groups. Both learning modes essentially offer the same course content and learning outcomes.

Read the Online-based Classroom Learner Guide for a more detailed comparison on both formats.

Can't I learn everything over the internet?

Our courses offer a very hands on approach so that you will be able to apply what you learn immediately. Moreover, our trainers are industry practitioners who will be able to answer your questions and offer expert advice in real time.

We also offer post-training support which includes 2-hour Ask Me Anything sessions with an industry expert for up to 3 years, an online refresher seat within 3 years post-training, access to an insider community, and 3-year access to up-to-date courseware via the learning management system.

Will there be video recordings of the session made available for reference after class?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide video recordings of the class due to PDPA regulations (Personal Data Protection Act). However, all courseware and e-learning videos are accessible online via the learning management system for 3 years. You may also sign up for a complimentary online refresher course for up to 3 years post-training.

Are these short courses sufficient to achieve desirable learning outcomes?

Equinet Academy’s courses are meticulously designed to provide bite-sized yet comprehensive information that are highly relevant to the industry’s needs. Through a combination of individual project work, peer-to-peer interaction, and practice and feedback, trainees can immediately apply the concepts learnt in class to their real world projects.

If you feel that you have not met the learning objectives at the end of the course, you are always welcomed to re-sit the course online without any additional cost. You will also have full access to the courseware online which you may review during and after the course, and post-training support to address any challenges you may face along your learning journey through consultation with subject matter experts.
