The Realist Approach to Digital Marketing

Digital Marketing Community Bootcamp

Course overview and goals

This Digital Marketing Bootcamp will give you the knowledge and confidence that you need to make better digital marketing decisions.

"I'll be very honest with you. This is not a very technical class (although you will have hands-on experience with tools such as WordPress, Facebook Ads, Google Analytics, etc). This digital marketing class is about understanding how to make the right decisions when you start on your digital marketing journey, either as a business or as a professional. You will gain technical knowledge, but you will also develop the mindset necessary for digital. If I only teach you how to use digital marketing tools, I can guarantee your technical skills will be outdated in 3 months' time. That's how fast digital and the world move.

Too often, "digital marketing" courses offer training to teach you the technical skills to run Google Search ads or Facebook Ad campaigns. But most times, these trainings do not give you the knowledge or insights to be entrepreneurial or knowhow to be proactive with digital marketing even without a marketing budget. If you haven't realised by now, Google Ads and Facebook Marketing cost money. You can't be spending advertising budget all the time. As more businesses use digital advertising, it will get more expensive in time due to increased competition. You want your business, startup or your employer's company to build a brand that lasts and remembered by your customers.

Bring all your digital marketing questions to class and I will bring my over 15 years of experience working in digital environments in various roles including senior corporate marketer in advertising technology and media companies, digital marketing specialist & trainer and, currently, entrepreneur. We will answer all the questions that you may have. Not only that, we will debunk all the myths and hype around digital marketing so that you will leave my class in a better position to make smarter digital marketing decisions.

PS. I have nothing to upsell before, during or after this event. I give away digital marketing project opportunities to my organisational partners and I am not affiliated to any technology providers (I do have favourites though!) Be rest assured that it will be a neutral learning experience. Just me, my knowledge and my experience."

    Trainer Profile

    Isman Tanuri

    Isman's mission is to make work better for marketers. Marketing leaders and professionals are overextended and overworked. By understanding and practising Agile Marketing values & management principles, Isman believes marketers will create a more productive and healthier work environment by doing far less. He also believes that there is an over-emphasis and reliance on digital technologies. We have forgotten the art of marketing and its human element and it's time to reflect and reconnect.

    As a trainer and learning facilitator, Isman has worked with global and regional organisations including Daimler, CardinalHealth, Cigna, Dialog Axiata, PepsiCo and Telkomsel to deliver marketing training (including digital, inbound and social media) and to facilitate strategy and team development workshops. To date, he has delivered in-person learning experiences in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Isman has also lectured and trained students and professionals in educational and training institutions including Singapore Polytechnic, Marketing Institute of Singapore, Equinet Academy and Lithan Academy.

    A Strathclyde MBA, he also holds a BA (First Class Honours) Marketing Management degree from Northumbria University. Isman's corporate experience started at Oracle and his marketing career progressed with Head of Marketing, Asia Pacific (MediaMath) and Marketing Director, Asia Pacific (Tapad/Telenor) roles at two of New York City's most innovative advertising technology companies.
