Nancy Dibert, the director of UD’s social media marketing program and the instructor for the course, has reached millions of people through innovative digital engagement strategies as the CEO of her full-service creative marketing and advertising agency. She recommends that aspiring content marketers build a robust social brand for themselves and a portfolio that showcases their creative talents.

“Content marketers must show they know how to ignite audience engagement and employ insightful metric analysis for adaptive strategy refinement," she said. "It’s always time to upskill if you want to excel as a content marketer in today’s dynamic digital marketing landscape.”
