Narrative Story

  • The simulation uses a narrative (story) style where you are in the role of an inventor who is about to market and sell a new product — a hoverboard.

  • Through this storytelling approach, you are guided by a virtual business coach, a content expert, and an advertising expert who help you build a digital marketing funnel— one module at a time.

  • Using our microlearning methodology, each digital marketing module is introduced using a brief whiteboard-style video, followed by text-based review slides, followed by a multiple-choice quiz.

  • The quiz results are integrated into the simulated sales results, inspiring you to remain engaged throughout the experience.

Marketing Funnel

  • There are 19 modules and high-level concepts that follow the style above.

  • As each module is introduced, it appears on the digital marketing funnel, one at a time, until the funnel is fully built out — as shown here.

The funnel activates while sales are being made.​

Design Note:  The learning focuses on introductory concepts and high-level marketing strategy. The training does not have you design ads or do tactics that are specific to any particular social media platform or other online app. There are many other content resources that can be used to serve that purpose. This GoVenture program is intended to bring all the concepts together in a way that conventional learning resources cannot do effectively.
