Direct Response and Internet Marketing (MKT 425)
Instructor: Seshadri Tirunillai ([email protected] )
Course Description
In the recent years, companies have been shifting their marketing efforts to online avenues such
as search engine marketing, online advertising and direct marketing using email or social media. It is
important for marketers to understand these techniques and to utilize appropriate tools in designing
marketing strategies. This course is designed to provide insights into some of the direct and interactive
marketing techniques. It will also equip you with some of the tools necessary for analyzing and
developing marketing plans. At the end of the course, it is expected that you will be able to:
1. Understand concepts of direct and interactive (online) marketing
2. Develop an ability to understand internet strategies of companies.
3. Familiarize with the technology as well as the business implications of various online
marketing techniques
4. Develop analytical abilities to untangle issues related to online marketing through cases,
computer exercises and assignments
5. Think independently on issues pertaining to online marketing
Understanding the underlying technologies is important to appreciate the marketing implications.
To this end, you will get acquainted with technical concepts to the level that is required to gain insights
into the business applications. This means that we would be covering some of the technology related
topics – e.g. the basics of Internet technologies (e.g. how network works and its economics),
understanding elements of human-computer interface (e.g. browser technologies such as HTML, scripts,
cookies, applications on mobile platforms). We would be using this knowledge to enhance the
understanding of a broad array of marketing strategies. Some of the topics intended to be covered are:search advertising (e.g. Google, Yahoo), syndicated display advertising (e.g. banner ads, Flash ads), email
marketing, affiliate marketing, social media (e.g. using social networking to improve customer
relationship) and if time permits topics in emerging technologies (e.g. mobile marketing). (Details below)

Course Evaluation:
Suggested prerequisite would be any fundamental marketing course (e.g. BUAD 307 or
equivalent). Though no prior technical background is required, a genuine enthusiasm to understand the
working of online techniques is recommended (and would make the course more enjoyable!).
The final grade for this course is based on multiple evaluation components. The main components
are quizzes and small assignments (that run through the semester) and a final exam. The assignments
will encompass case studies, in-class work outs and write-ups on specific topics chosen by you. There
will also be a final project that is to be submitted at the end of the semester based on your interest.
