Skills You'll learn

Brand Experience

Brand experience is the sum of a customer's various touch points with your brand. This ranges from the obvious (a billboard) to the subliminal (sponsorship of the local football club). A great brand experience will result in brand loyalty and evangelism from your customers.

Behavioural outcome

You will demonstrate your knowledge in Brand experience by integrating consideration of a brand's multiple potential touch points into a strategic customer experience design.

Consumer Behaviour

Consumer behaviour is the study of how people make decisions about what they buy, want, need, or act in regards to a product, service, or company. A good understanding of consumer behaviour in regards to your industry and product will help you design a better experience.

Behavioural outcome

You will demonstrate your understanding of consumer behaviour by integrating your awareness of how people make decisions about what they buy, want, need or act in to creating increased engagement in retail customers

Digital Marketing

Digital marketing is the marketing of products or services on digital platforms. The importance of digital marketing is growing as an increasingly digital native audience shifts their time/attention to digital platforms. Marketing on a growing range of digital devices (phone, tablets, kiosks, digital displays) presents an opportunity for digital marketers to innovate the way they deliver their messages.

Behavioural outcome

You will demonstrate your understanding of digital marketing by creating strategies that market to various audiences across a range of digital devices in innovative ways. Your ability to communicate consistently across marketing channels and audiences is critical to showing your abilities in digital marketing.

Copywriting

Copywriting is the art of crafting a message to an audience to compel them towards thinking, feeling or doing something. It is used primarily in advertising to market a particular product or service to a specific audience. Good copy writing not only conveys a message but also acts as an extension of the brand.

Behavioural outcome

You will demonstrate skill in copywriting by engaging and captivating an audience with your content, controlling your message and ensuring that your key messages reach the audience.

Internet of Things

Increasingly everyday objects are being imbued with connectivity to the internet. By allowing physical devices to communicate with other devices/services their usefulness is magnified. These devices will generate a lot more data allowing us to draw new insights about the world we live in.

Behavioural outcome

You will demonstrate your understanding of the Internet of Things by demonstrating a perceived or real increased usefulness of a device or service through connectivity in your project work.

User Journey Mapping

A user journey tells the story of a user's interactions with a product or service. It details their interactions across both physical and digital touchpoints and captures what they're thinking/feeling/doing at each stage of their journey. Having a user journey map allows you to build empathy for the user and allows you identify opportunities to improve the overall user experience.

Behavioural outcome

You will demonstrate skill in user journey mapping by producing a detailed user journey map describing the various interactions a user has with a product/service

Brand Storytelling

Brand storytelling encapsulates the narrative a brand is eager to share with the market based on the brand's strengths, ambitions and purpose. This story may be conveyed through advertising or it may underpin whatever the company says in public. The brand story will be based on history, intention, product or ubiquity, and will play a major role in shaping how people see the brand and what they believe about the brand as a result. Great brands set their promise to the market through their story.

Behavioural outcome

You will demonstrate skill in brand storytelling by applying the structure of a good storyline to convey the purpose and ambition of a brand to generate a positive response from an audience.

Immersive Technology

Immersive experience technology refers to hardware and software which blurs the lines between the physical and simulated world, creating a sense of immersion in a hybrid environment. Emerging technology such as virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D display, holography, 3D audio, haptic technology and brain-computer interfaces are changing the way society interacts with technology.

Behavioural outcome

You will demonstrate understanding of immersive experience technology by integrating key aspects of immersive technology in a transmedia strategy. You will understand the scope of immersive technology and the benefit of contextual application of this tech in different areas.

Transmedia Storytelling

Transmedia storytelling is the ability to convey an essential message to an audience using a variety of digital platforms. Transmedia storytelling engages the audience powerfully, by using the unique experience of particular technologies to amplify the story.

Behavioural outcome
