New Year, New Advertising Strategy

HubSpot Employee

Hi there! It’s Corey from HubSpot Academy. 


I don’t know about you, but I have seen some bad ads over the years. From products and services that in no way are relevant to me, to spammy and cringy adverts that feel like they’re straight out of the 90s. 


I’m surely not the only one. HubSpot Research dug into how people interact with digital advertising, and it confirmed what many marketers have known for a long time: Consumers are actively avoiding ads.


But let’s be honest. Consumers don’t hate ads — they hate bad ads. Can you guess the number one reason why consumers report disliking ads? They find them annoying and disruptive. 


As a marketer, we never want our audience to feel this way. We want our ads to be engaging, inspiring, and truly helpful. In other words, we want our advertising to be inbound. 


That’s why the HubSpot Academy team and I set out on a mission to create our brand-new Digital Advertising Certification Course


In this course, you’ll learn everything you need to build a winning online advertising strategy that not only delights your boss but your audience too. We’ll cover everything from journey-based advertising and paid media strategy, to paid search, social, reporting, and more. Plus, I’ve teamed up with industry experts to share their tried-and-tested strategies with you all.
