Frequently Asked Questions

How will this certificate help me?

It depends on who you are...

  • If you're a marketing professional, this certificate can make you more valuable to your firm, which is the surest way to get that raise or promotion you likely already deserve (but don't have a tangible reason to request).
  • If you're a CMO or Director of Marketing, this certification is a great way to learn digital marketing yourself. It's also a great way to train and certify members of your own team to ensure that they're up to speed on the latest trends and best practices.
  • If you're looking to work for a law firm, this certificate can set you apart from other candidates who merely have a business or marketing degree, but specialized skills that law firms today are desperately seeking.

How valuable is this certification?

  • The certification itself is highly valuable if you need to set yourself apart from the competition. What's far more valuable than any badge or certificate, however, is the actual knowledge you're going to receive when you take this course and master the basics of digital marketing for law firms. You will know digital marketing. I'll say that again: YOU WILL KNOW DIGITAL MARKETING.

What is required to receive my certification?

  • In order to receive your certificate, you need to attend a minimum of six sessions and complete your mini digital marketing plan. You will also need to complete the course survey.

What happens if I need to miss a session?

  • If something comes up and you need to miss a session, you are required to notify the instructor in advance and watch the session video on your own. You are only allowed to miss a total of two sessions in order to graduate. NO EXCEPTIONS!
