For some time, I’ve wanted to complete Inbound Marketing University’s Inbound Marketing training curriculum. Inbound Marketing University awards the Inbound Marketing Certification as part of its comprehensive Internet marketing training program (http://inboundmarketing.com).
“If you have more money than brains, use outbound marketing. If you have more brains than money, use inbound marketing.”
To complete the Inbound Marketing Certification, I completed 16 in-depth classes covering each facet of inbound marketing and passed a comprehensive online certification exam. The comprehensive exam contains 50 multiple choice and true & false questions. The examiner must receive a 75% or above to achieve the certification.
The courses are taught by a knowledgeable faculty of professors, including New York Times’ best-selling author Chris Brogan, Google’s Analytics Evangelist Avinash Kaushik, Internet celebrity Gary Vaynerchuk, best-selling author and international speaker David Meerman Scott, and more.
Get Found | Convert | Analyze
Much of content is skewed to the < Get Found > portion of the inbound marketing continuum which is comprised of < Get Found | Convert | Analyze >. < Get Found > is broken down into three areas: [ create, optimize and promote ]. For future revisions of the curriculum, my hope is that IMU will further expand on the < Analyze > portion.
This certification acknowledges my proficiency in inbound marketing principles and best practices. These principles include: blogging, search engine optimization, social media, lead conversion, lead nurturing and closed-loop analysis.
I join an elite group of Inbound Marketing Certified Professionals. Over 2,000 individuals have successfully passed the IMU program since its inception in 2009. Students from all over the world have participated; countries include India, Australia, Denmark, Brazil, and more. The training and certification is completely free. Inbound Marketing University program is administered by HubSpot.
