PS: I disliked how paid courses are set up in Coursera–I’m a bright person with excellent reading comprehension, but others in the class were scoring very low, yet giving positive reviews in the comments… and so a lot of people were failing the classes when they should be getting a B average. And people were scoring others really low and giving them ridiculous feedback that proved they didn’t understand the material themselves. No thanks on the ignorant masses making sure I don’t pass a class I’m paying for… good idea on paper, but between the complicated scoring set-up and the propensity for others to want to feel superior (even based on gender, ethnicity, etc.) it simply did not work well.

Balancing search and display for digital display ads are important; marketers tend to look at the last search and attribute all of the effectiveness to this. This then disregards other marketing efforts, which establish brand value within the consumers mind. ComScore determined through drawing on data online, produced by over one hundred multichannel retailers that digital display marketing poses strengths when compared with or positioned alongside, paid search (Whiteside, 2016). This is why it is advised that when someone clicks on a display ad the company opens a landing page, not its home page. A landing page typically has something to draw the customer in to search beyond this page. Things such as free offers that the consumer can obtain through giving the company contact information so that they can use retargeting communication strategies (Square2Marketing, 2012). Commonly marketers see increased sales among people exposed to a search ad. But the fact of how many people you can reach with a display campaign compared to a search campaign should be considered. Multichannel retailers have an increased reach if the display is considered in synergy with search campaigns. Overall both search and display aspects are valued as display campaigns build awareness for the brand so that more people are likely to click on these digital ads when running a search campaign (Whiteside, 2016).
