Students: What to Expect/Bring to Class

The main classroom at Demand Quest, used for public classes and custom training.

We’re excited to have online advertisers and marketers, business owners and anyone who wants to learn digital marketing as students at DemandQuest. Our goal is to help people actually learn how to use digital marketing tools. We want you to be able to walk out of class and actually implement the new digital marketing tools that you learned and see results right away.

Here’s what to expect when you attend class here.

What to bring to class:

  • A Laptop – not required but we recommend it so that you can follow along in your own accounts during class)
  • Goals – what do you want to get out of your class? Having even an idea of a goal will help you get the most out of your digital marketing training
  • A willingness to learn – we cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time so get ready to dig in

What we will provide:

  • Wi-Fi
  • Syllabus so you can follow along with the instructor
  • Resources via email – we used to print out books with information and links to tools but we know that digital marketing changes daily so we craft up-to-date resource emails with valid links to useful tools that you’ll get a day or two after class. We also know how annoying it is to try and copy a URL from a piece of paper – we’ll send you a link and save you time and frustration
  • Tables and chairs
  • Power – strips that is – we have power strips to plug in your chargers (just don’t forget them)
  • Elevator and Handicap-accessible restrooms
  • Coffee (a must have)
  • Occasionally, Beer (they say it helps creative juices flow)
  • Light refreshments – we don’t believe in vending machines
  • Free Parking – you may not find a spot in the main lot behind our building but there are usually spots in the second lot across the street or on the street within a block or two of our building (see below for options)

We’re located at 2112 Broadway St NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413 (Parking Map Link). You can reach us at 612-460-8770.

Refund policy: We understand that life happens and things come up. We will offer a full refund when you give us 24 hours notice and partial refund if you miss the class and ask for a refund within 5 days of the class.

Certifications: We don’t offer certifications from our school but we do help students get ready for some outside certifications such as Google Ads and Google Analytics. These tests are taken outside of class time and while our students currently have a 97% pass rate, we don’t guarantee that you’ll pass; you may have to study!

We’re excited to have you in class! We have a 5-star rating on Google and Facebook and 68% of our students return for an additional class! We’re proud to offer the best training in SEO, Google Ads, Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Google Data Studio (we’re a Google Premier Partner so we teach a lot of Google classes), Social Media Advertising, Small Business Digital Marketing and lots more.
