Ready or not, here it… already is! Digital marketing is not the future. It’s the right now. It’s happening. We’re in it. Virtually every business can benefit from it and risks getting left behind (or already has) if they don’t catch up.
That’s great news for anyone looking to expand their career opportunities because adding digital marketing expertise to your CV is not that difficult. However, because we’re deep into the digital game, just knowing how to do it or being “really good at Instagram” isn’t always enough. Companies are looking for certifications. Genuine, professional training from reputable institutions.
