Let’s understand what is Digital Marketing
Consider Digital Marketing in 3 Simple Steps
Audience: The first step is to have an idea about your audience. Consider the audience as a group of people, who like what you are and who like what you have to offer them as a product or service. At the initial stages, you will not have any audience to start with, in that case, you have to do market research and create your customer avatar.
Platform: The Second Step is to have your own platform, This Platform will be your foundation where you will showcase your products or services to your target audience. you will basically create your WordPress website in this step.
Traffic: The final step is to drive traffic to your website. There are basically two methods which you can consider.
- Paid Traffic: Facebook Ads, Google Ads, Linkedin Ads, Youtube Ads2
- Organic Traffic: SEO, Content Marketing, Email Marketing.
Once you drive traffic via any of the above methods you should make sure that you give your users such a good experience that they land up on buying your services or products and this cycle repeats.
How to get started with Digital Marketing?
Good News! You actually don’t need any prior experience/ any kind of prerequisite to get started with digital marketing, unlike the other field.
Consider an example: If you want to join XYZ company as a software developer, you need to master all programming languages but in the case of digital marketing, you can learn by doing it.
All I can say is, anyone with a laptop & a good internet connection can ideally get started with digital marketing. start blogging & get results for your blog in that case you will gain a lot of experience.
Various Opportunities in the digital marketing field
1. Finding your Dream Job
I recommend you first build upon your skills related to the job your applying for. As I told you earlier you can start learning by working for yourself & get results for yourself (own website). Companies don’t want to hear your experience, they want to visualize your experience and you will able to fulfill that requirement by presenting your project (own website).
2. Digital Freelancing
If you are not comfortable in performing a typical 9-5 Job then you can opt for digital freelancing as your career by serving world-wide clients via digital marketing services. It could be SEO, Facebook Ads, Google Ads or Email Automation, etc. But remember you need to master the skills required to serve your client because people come to you because of who you are and stay with you for a long time because of what you do.
3. Digital Marketing Agency
This is just the next level of digital Freelancing where you will scale up your business and build your team and serve clients all over the world.
4. Digital Mentor
If you have followed all the above sequences and by the time you reach the last option that is the digital mentor you will be flooded with all required knowledge required for digital marketing then you can mentor people who want to start their career as digital marketers & help others like you.
After understanding the various opportunities involved in digital marketing I’m sure your mind is filled with ideas now! then you are on the right track.
All I want to say is get started! no matter what, don’t wait for an ideal time in fact there is no such ideal time at all, so please get started…
