      Digital Marketing Course FAQs

      What is Digital Marketing?

      “Business owners and entrepreneurs who want their business to remain relevant and competitive in today’s tech-forward world must consider digitising quickly – starting with an online presence.”

      – The Straits Times, 12 Jan 2022

      Digital and mobile technology coupled with the explosive global adoption of social media has fundamentally changed the way businesses connect with their customers. Though traditional marketing methods are still utilised, digital marketing such as search engines and social media is fast becoming the dominant tool for marketers.

      As the digital landscape continues to evolve, it is essential for marketers to familiarise themselves with the key technologies underlying digital marketing, as well as learn how an effective digital strategy can enable a business to thrive in this dynamic environment.

      What is Social Media Marketing?

      In Social Media Marketing, platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok are used to build a company’s brand, increase sales, and drive website traffic.

      This growing digital marketing strategy not only provides businesses with an outlet to engage with their existing customers and reach out to prospective ones, but it also has built-in data analytics that allows digital marketers to track the success of their campaign efforts and identify areas for improvement.

      What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?

      Search Engine Optimisation is the process of improving a website such as its content relevance and technical configuration to increase its visibility in search engines when people search for products or services.

      Search engines rank websites by analysing and featuring content that fulfils user search needs. This includes the use of relevant keywords in titles, meta descriptions, and headlines, along with descriptive URLs. By optimising your website to rank higher on search engine results pages, your business will be able to receive more traffic.

      What is Search Engine Marketing (SEM)?

      Search Engine Marketing is a powerful way to grow your business and reach new customers by ranking your website above organic results on the search engine results page.

      To secure the desired paid ad spot at the top of the page, you will need to enter an ad auction by identifying the keywords you want to bid on, followed by specifying how much you are willing to spend per click on each of those keywords.

      In order to create a good Search Engine Marketing strategy, you must first understand how paid ads platforms work and manage the variables that affect performance.

      What is Google Analytics?

      Google Analytics is one of the most popular analytics software. This free web analytics service allows you to gain in-depth insights about the visitors to your website, and it identifies the areas for improvement by highlighting what is unclear or lacking on your site.

      It also provides a detailed report of the pages that experience a high bounce rate – one of the most important metrics which shows the percentage of visitors who leave your website after visiting only one page.

      What is Email Marketing?

      Email Marketing is a marketing channel that helps businesses to share new products or updates with customers on their mailing list.

      It is one of the most direct and effective ways of connecting with your leads, nurturing them, and ultimately turning them into customers. Modern email marketing also has automation systems in place to simplify the process. In the long run, a well-designed email marketing strategy will not only drive sales but also build a community around your business.

      Why are digital marketing skills relevant today?

      As more businesses begin to shift online, it is becoming increasingly important for brands to gain an edge in the virtual space. Yet, according to recruitment platforms, Singapore is facing a tech talent shortage.

      Singaporean employers ranked digital marketing among the top five job roles they aim to fill. With many job opportunities available and a high demand for digital marketing talent, you will be able to enjoy greater job security and a lucrative salary in this field.

      Are there course fee subsidies available?

      Yes, you can receive up to 70% funding support from The Institute of Banking & Finance (IBF) for our IBF-accredited programmes. The balance course fees (after subsidy) can be offset using your SkillsFuture Credits or NTUC UTAP funding.

      The IBF Standards Training Scheme (“IBF-STS”) provides funding for training and assessment programmes accredited under the Skills Framework for Financial Services.

      For our training programmes that are IBF-accredited, eligible Singaporeans & PRs may receive funding support under the IBF Standards Training Scheme (IBF-STS), subjected to all eligibility criteria being met.

      For more information on the funding support, please visit: https://www.ibf.org.sg/home/for-individuals/skills-and-jobs-development/training-support/IBF-STS

      Can I use SkillsFuture Credits to pay for the remaining course fee after funding?

      Yes. For self-sponsored Singaporeans aged 25 years old and above, you can use your SkillsFuture Credit to offset the remaining course fees after IBF funding.

      To check your SkillsFuture credit balance, please follow these steps:

      1. Go to https://myskillsfuture.gov.sg
      2. Click on ‘Submit SkillsFuture Credit Claims’
      3. Login with your SingPass
      4. Click on the arrow (>) at the top right hand corner. You will be able to see a drop-down list of your Available SkillsFuture Credits.

      After you have registered for a course, a VI representative will reach out to guide you with the SkillsFuture Credits

      *Please note that our bootcamps are not eligible for “Additional SkillsFuture Credit (Mid-Career Support)’. You will only be able to use available credits from ‘SkillsFuture Credit’ and ‘One-off SkillsFuture Credit Top-Up’.

      Can NTUC Union members use UTAP to offset the remaining course fee after funding?

      Yes, all our courses are eligible for Union Training Assistance Programme (UTAP) Funding. NTUC Union members can use UTAP to offset 50% of unfunded course fees (capped at $500 per year).

      This claim must be done after completion of the course. Please refer to the UTAP FAQ for more information.

      Can I use SkillsFuture Credits and UTAP at the same time?

      Yes, you can utilise both at the same time. UTAP can only be applied after SFC has been applied.

      For illustration purposes only:Vertical Institute Updated Calculation

      Am I eligible for IBF funding support?

      The IBF funding support works on a nett fee model. This means that the subsidy is applied upfront, and you will only need to pay the balance course fees after the subsidy. For example, if you are eligible for 70% subsidy, you only need to pay the remaining 30% upfront.

      To be eligible, you’ll have to meet the following prerequisites.
