Assessment 1 Information
Subject Code: MKT302
Subject Name: Digital Marketing
Assessment Title: Digital Marketing Audit
Assessment Type: Length: Written Analysis
1500 words (+/- 10% allowable range)
Submission: 100 Online
Due Date: Week 6
Individually, you are required to undertake a digital marketing audit of a brand of your choice that actively uses several digital channels. Please note that this assessment will serve the basis for your work in the second assessment in this subject. Market leaders such as Apple, Google, Disney or Nike, are not to be selected.
In this individual assessment, you will be given an opportunity to analyse and evaluate digital marketing strategies in comparison to traditional marketing strategies. Upon completing this assessment, you should have a sound understanding of the technical and theoretical knowledge of digital marketing concepts, strategies and applications.
Before you start working on this assessment, conduct preliminary web research of a brand that you would like to analyse. In making your choice, you should focus on a brand that uses at least four different types of digital marketing tools. Please consult your workshop facilitator if you are unsure as to which brand you should choose.
Once you made your choice, you are required to write a 1500 word Digital Marketing Audit. An essential tool used to assess efficiency and effectiveness of digital marketing tools. Marketing agencies or in-house teams typically undertake such an audit. The digital marketing tools you are to consider for this assessment are social media marketing, email marketing, website design, search engine optimisation and search engine marketing. You should also explore digital ethics and emerging digital channels.
In preparing the audit, you should include three distinct sections:
Section 1 – The need for digital marketing
• A succinct description of the brand (name, ownership, location/s, what do they sell? who do they target?).
• Identification of the purpose of digital marketing for the brand (for example, the sale of products, lead generation, brand awareness).
• A list of the traditional marketing tools they use.
Section 2 – Analysis of digital tools
In the audit, you should have sections for the following tools:
• Social Media Marketing,
• Email marketing,
• Website design,
• Search engine optimisation
• Search engine marketing
• Digital Ethics
• Emerging digital channels
These topics are covered in weeks 2 to 5.
For each channel, you should discuss:
• Current use
• What is being done well? Why do you think about this?
• Recommendations: What could be improved? Why do you think about this?
• A score out of 5 in terms of how effective you think the brand is using the tool
You must include photos or screenshots with links to the digital marketing tools analysed – failure to include this section may result in questions over the academic integrity of your report.
If the brand is not using some of these digital marketing tools, you are required to note that they are not being used by explaining the reasons why you believe this is the case and whether they should undertake this tool.
You are required to use at least 6 sources of information and reference these in accordance with Kaplan Harvard Referencing Style. These may include websites, government publications, industry reports, journal articles, and newspaper articles. These references should be presented as a reference list at the end of your report.
This file must be submitted as a ‘Word’ file to avoid any technical issues that may occur from incorrect file format upload. Uploaded files with a virus will not be considered as a legitimate submission. Turnitin will notify you if there is an issue with the submitted file. In this case, you must contact your workshop facilitator via email and provide a brief description of the issue and a screenshot of the Turnitin error message. You are also encouraged to submit your work well in advance of the deadline to avoid any possible delay with any other technical difficulties that may occur.
