The DMND program is unmatched. The way the lesson is strategically placed has caused a great impact in my current career as a Digital Marketing Associate at a Digital Communications firm. Before Udacity I was not "trained" in how to set up and properly optimize campaigns. Since becoming a student, I use the lesson on Content Strategy across the board for FB, Adwords, SEO, EVERYTHING. Having a strategy in place and being able to practice with projects took away the fear and the result has impacted real-world campaigns I currently optimize daily. My mentor April is so supportive & always available to answer questions. My client's FB campaigns have received more "sample request conversions" in 2 months than the entire 2017 year! Increasing their bottom line and making our firm accomplish our goals for getting RESULTS our clients. The knowledge gained from Udacity has helped my confidence and increased the bottom line for clients because they have taught me a PROVEN strategy that is effective, RELEVANT & presented in a fun & practical way. I cannot wait to enroll in the Machine Learning course because I am confident I can learn whatever I choose with Udacity.

Excellent course. The DMND course provides a full, 360 degree view of the key parts of digital marketing. I highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to up their current marketing skills, enter into the field of digital marketing, or grow their business. The projects are amazing as you are given the opportunity to run live campaigns, which is the best way to understand the dynamics of digital advertising. I greatly appreciated the assessment of projects. The Udacity team of project graders are helpful, encouraging and extremely fast. Every project provided an important part of the total learning experience. I highly recommend signing up for the full course experience. It is worth it. I am now equipped to move forward with my marketing business, and I give Udacity a huge amount of credit for giving me the confidence to start my own business. I now feel I have a better understanding of the dynamics of digital marketing and will be able to better serve my clients. Thank you!

This is an excellent Digital Marketing course that covers all of the fundamentals in an applied, project-based learning environment. It is great to gain experience running real campaigns. This is a great way to complement marketing courses taken at school, to close to gap by gaining the hands-on experience running real campaigns, as required in certain marketing jobs. This is also a great course to explore what skills a career in digital marketing involves and to prepare for other e-marketing courses. Thank you to my mentors Kobi, and all professors, teachers, and reviewers for providing support along the way, answering questions, and guiding me to successful completion of the program. Digital Marketing is an exciting field to explore, and the practical learning environment at Udacity helps close the skills gap in a fun and inclusive digital classroom. Thanks!

I completed the Nanodegree program today, and couldn't be happier. I didn't know much about digital marketing before the program, but the projects have a natural progression that really helps you understand how you tie the target persona, to the marketing objective, to the marketing channels, etc. You gain real-life experience with Facebook campaigns, AdWords, Google Analytics, MailChimp, to mention a few. It's not a walk in the park, you really have to put a lot of hours into it, but when you see the results of your Facebook or AdWords campaigns, it's worth the effort! I would highly recommend this course to marketing professionals or people just generally interested in the human behaviour, how Facebook targeting works, how search works, or even if you're just curious why certain emails appear in your inbox.

Olivera R.

This program is awesome! I took several digital marketing courses before and worked as a marketing manager but always felt like I was missing technical knowledge, guidance, and overall understanding of digital marketing. Udacity's Digital Marketing Nanodegree was exactly what I was looking for: simple, straight to the point, everyday approach to a space that is becoming more and more complicated. The classroom was always up to date, filled with practical examples, interactive, with personalized mentoring and projects that helped solidify what was taught in the classroom. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in digital marketing! It helped me prepare for technical interviews and to an extent it helped me get two job offers in the digital marketing space. Thanks Udacity!
