Overview of
Integrated Digital Marketing Campaigns


Dear Students,


Welcome to the textbook written and designed specifically for COMSTRAT 310 Digital Content Promotion at Washington State University in The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication. The main goal of the course is to introduce students to key ideas, principles, and tactics for writing for digital content, creating and executing a digital campaign and understanding core concepts in tracking and measuring the effectiveness of digital communications. Students are introduced to digital campaign planning and project management – challenged on how to establish purposeful and measurable outcomes and trained on the setup, design, delivery, and measurement of various online tools used by practitioners for web development, email outreach, social media engagement and online advertising.


“Integrated Digital Marketing Campaigns” was originally written by me in the summer of 2016 with contributing content and editing by fellow professors Ryan Risenmay, Brett Atwood and Chris Cooney. A second edition was released in fall 2018 that provides students with current articles, best practices, and industry standards in the field of digital communications.


As you explore the textbook, you will see eight chapters with several sub-chapters throughout that include quick reference definitions of industry terms via hyperlinks, dozens of support graphics and infographics, and interactive activities within the sub-chapters to further illustrate key points.  At the close of each chapter, you will find graded “testing your knowledge” activities designed to add value to the process of experiencing digital communication in action in the course itself while also digging deeper into the topics through the text.


All course content coincides with textbook so it is relevant, has immediate application and provides you with valuable tools you can take with you once you complete the course. The goal with the textbook and support materials provided in the curriculum is for students to close out the semester with a solid understanding of digital content tactics, tools, and resources available for ongoing professional development, exploration, and mastering.


I hope you enjoy the textbook, learn a lot from it, and walk away feeling confident, digitally-literate, and equipped with fantastic new, usable vocabulary and skills!
