Review from a Student:

“I must admit, I had a phobia of taking this course. Mainly because I never considered myself a creative person as a marketer would be. I am so glad I was able to take Dr. Allison's course. I [sic] made the course manageable to understand. His course book was understandable and related to the course. I not only learn academically about digital marketing, but I gained knowledge on a personal level as well. For a person who has no marketing experience, the course is rigorous, assignments are demanding, but I greatly appreciate doing the assignments versus test and quizzed. I learned so much more completing the assignments. Dr. Allison gave us real work experiences through the milestones and final project. I would suggest anyone required to take a marketing course to take Dr. Allison s digital marketing class.”
