For 30 years, it's been our mission to provide best-in-class training, qualifications, events, resources and membership services to meet the real-world needs of today's digital, direct and data marketers.

Committed to helping every marketer be the best they can be, the IDM exists to support, encourage and improve marketing performance from your first steps on the career ladder, right to the very top.

Every IDM programme is designed and delivered by practising marketers, who know what it takes to succeed at the job and dedicated to helping you succeed in yours. The IDM advocates lifelong learning. We maintain an up-to-date training and qualifications portfolio designed to meet the needs of marketing practitioners throughout their careers—at every stage, from college student to senior marketing manager:

The Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing has a worldwide reputation for the quality and practical nature of its training and qualifications. Our services – for individual marketers and businesses – are in demand worldwide as more and more businesses seek to apply personal, customer-centric, one-to-one marketing.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we pledge to continuously reinvest our profits back into Higher Education to find, develop and give the best career start to the next generation of marketing stars.

In 2015 The IDM became part DMA Group. Our two leading industry bodies have come together promote the highest standards and professionalism in direct, digital and data marketing.

The IDM is affiliated with the DM Trust. For more information click here.

Why do it with the IDM?

Marketers who choose the IDM as their training partner make a real difference to their business, their customers’ lives and their own career.

The IDM is leading the ‘do revolution’

What counts today more than ever is not what you think, or even what you say, but what you can do. IDM qualifications and short marketing courses are designed for marketers who want to do more, faster, better.

Over the last 30 years we’ve trained over 100,000 delegates across 28 countries, from Microsoft to the BBC, John Lewis to Lego.
