Starting a career in Digital Marketing

Why is Digital Marketing a great job to have?

Over the years, Digital Marketing has started to become more popular as there’s an ever-growing demand for companies to have a strong digital presence. It is one of the fastest growing industries, and this is all down to the speed of the technology evolution.

So, why should you consider Digital Marketing?

Do you enjoy social media? Do you have a passion for writing? Would you love to be involved in graphic design? Well the beauty of Digital Marketing is that the industry plays to your strengths. If you love social media and you have a lot of experience using it, then you could be a great person to take over a company’s social channels and keep them engaging. If you have a blog that you enjoy doing, then you could be the ideal person to write articles on a company’s latest news. Or, if you are someone who wants to get into graphic design, then creating leaflets and brochures for a company would be a good area for you.

There are so many areas to get into, and it’s one of those industries where you will always keep up with the latest trends and no two days are ever the same. If you like a challenge and enjoy getting involved in creative ideas, then this is a job which would never get boring for you!

What’s the best way to get into Digital Marketing?

Whilst a lot of people go onto university to study a degree in Marketing, it’s not an essential qualification. When employers are hiring for an entry level Digital Marketing role, they’re looking to see whether an individual has enough potential to take on the job spec.

Apprenticeships are a great way to get into the industry and prove you have what it takes, they are a great stepping stone.

On an Apprenticeship Programme you will learn everything you need to know about digital marketing. You will become a member of staff who will have the chance to gain knowledge whilst earning money. You could be earning up to £1,000 a month. And for a start in a career you want? That money is not bad!

Having 12-24 months’ experience behind you, gained on an Apprenticeship Programme, will give you the skills and abilities required to make your CV stand out and to help you move forward in the industry.

Also, a lot of the time employers keep on Apprentices once their Apprenticeship has been completed, and offer them a permanent job providing they have proved that they’re dedicated and work hard. A good attitude goes far, and that’s your key to impress.  

An Apprenticeship in Digital Marketing doesn’t just stop there

While the Apprenticeship programme lasts for around 12-24 months, on completion you will have the opportunity to grow and progress your career. Here is an example of the types of job and salary you could lead into:
