Looking to go into Digital Marketing Career

Postby RainieHrx » Tue, 24 Jan 2017 9:52 am

I've just left my desk job after 4 years and I've had enough of micromanagement by my boss. Some of my friends are going into digital marketing and the job scope and benefits seem pretty attractive. In fact many of my friends who are in digital marketing seem to be doing well.

What does it take to get into this industry? What courses should I sign up for? Which digital agency should I apply for or how do I find clients?

First, go and get certified. If you want to go into any industry, some relevant certification is always a plus point.

You can start by taking Google certifications on Google's website, they are free:

https://support.google.com/partners/ans ... 9738?hl=en (Google Analytics)

For Facebook, you have to pay for the certification:

I have some friends who have also recently enrolled into Equinet Academy's Digital marketing courses https://www.equinetacademy.com/internet ... singapore/ and Lithan academy's digital marketing course certification https://www.lithan.com/singapore/digital-marketing and they seem to be okay with it.

You can also check out Marketing institute of Singapore Digital marketing diploma http://www.mis.edu.sg/prospective-stude ... -part-time if you're looking for a locally recognised institution.

Digital Marketing is for those who find within themselves a creative spark and passion for the internet.
So I just want to say If you Really Interested in Digital Marketing then Go and Join any Best Institute not for Getting Certificate " For getting Knowledge, for Learning, for more Information and Ideas about DM" :)
