Chrome DevTools For Digital Marketers

Learn to use the most efficient and comprehensive toolkit for problem-solving, debugging, designing, and developing marketing tasks.

Use Chrome DevTools to inspect the world

Working in technical marketing exposes you to a host of technologies, platforms, and services that you need to understand in order to do a good job at it. Luckily, the Google Chrome browser has a free feature called DevTools that is the perfect toolkit for understanding how marketing technologies work.

About this course

Have you ever looked at analytics or ads reports, at debugging tools, or at A/B test results and wondered why the data looks … off?

There are so many moving parts to any given marketing technology that it’s not surprising how often they break or how frequently conflicts arise.

Google Chrome’s developer toolkit (known as DevTools) is one of the most comprehensive and most useful features for making sense of your marketing technology stack.

There’s lots of great content around how to use DevTools efficiently, but surprisingly little that focuses specifically on technical digital marketing.

That’s why we created this course at Simmer. The instructor, Simo Ahava, has over 14 years of experience of solving digital marketing problems, and the tool he uses the most is – you guessed it – Google Chrome DevTools.

What you'll learn

In this course, you’ll learn how the different panels in DevTools work.

However, the focus of the course isn’t to give you an exhaustive walkthrough of every single feature in DevTools. That would be a waste of time, because not everything is applicable in a digital marketing context. 

Instead, we’ll look at technical marketing use cases – the kind of things you’ll encounter almost daily when working in digital marketing.

Whether your discipline of choice is web analytics, tagging, search engine optimization, advertising, A/B testing, or social media, this course has something for you.

Is this course a good fit for me?

You work in a technical marketing field and you want to understand better how marketing technologies work.

You want to solve problems. Fixing issues and coming up with scalable solutions are your jam.

You have a basic understanding of web technologies, and/or you are not opposed to learning more about them.

You work with developers and designers, and you want to make their lives easier by offering them solutions instead of problems and questions.

You want to become a stronger community member by learning how to help others more efficiently.

You are looking for task-based instruction from an expert instructor supported by a strong community of your peer learners.

You don’t want to work on solutions – you want them to be handed to you.

You do not want to use the Google Chrome browser.

You want to learn everything there is to know about Google Chrome DevTools.

You are mainly concerned with backend engineering or mobile apps. This course is solely about web technologies.

Task-based, bite-sized, self-paced lessons

The course is self-paced, and you can take it at your own leisure. 

The individual videos are each focused on a single topic, which means the videos are short in length and easy to follow.

Each topic has additional text content that you are strongly encouraged to read. 

Certificate and lifetime access

Once you complete all the course content, you will receive a certificate of completion for your efforts.

Share this proudly in social media to let others know about your newfound skills!

The course has a final quiz which also needs to be completed before receiving the certificate.
