About DMA 1.0

The first Digital Marketing Academy, launched in June 2014, was a seven month programme encouraging real digital marketing experiments with real audiences in real arts organisations.

Some of the learning that came out of Digital Marketing Academy 1.0 included:

  • the development of a new online platform bringing teachers and arts organisations together
  • extensive experiments on audience segmentation
  • breakthroughs in the use of Google Analytics
  • the development of a crowdfunding website
  • data analysis and auditing
  • increased knowledge of Facebook advertising
  • exciting A/B email testing
  • analysis of social media strategy
  • investigations into staff digital functions and organisational structure

The Fellows were supported by six Mentors, all leading digital experts, who advised, guided and pushed the Fellows to create, develop and experiment through their digital marketing. There has been great learning and impact for individuals and organisations across the sector.
