In the recent years, there has been a surge in demand for digital marketers. Not surprisingly, this had led to the birth of the digital marketing course, in order to fulfil this demand. If you’ve been searching for a digital marketing course to upskill yourself, here are some things to consider.
I’m sure you’ve heard it before. It certainly is the future. In fact, it’s happening right now.
In fact, PayScale.com estimates that an average digital marketing manager’s annual salary averages around RM 95,000! No surprises why more and more people are rushing to equip themselves with this new skill set.
The job market has been very exciting for this new profession, which surprisingly isn’t fully offered (or recognized) by Universities as a course. A quick search on the major online job portals in Malaysia shows a whole list of companies looking to hire Digital Marketers.
As companies move towards the digital era, new skill sets are expected of Marketers and Growth teams to cope with the tightening competition in the local digital space.
The good news is, this opens up new opportunities for young, talented individuals with the creative juices to offer, regardless of background.
So, if you’ve been thinking of joining a digital marketing course, whether part time or full time, here are a few good reasons to do so.
In Malaysia, various government organizations are taking digital very seriously. In 2017, they recently launched the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ), which opens up ample opportunities for digital marketers, savvy online-entrepreneurs and e-commerce specialists to take advantage of the benefits offered under this initiative.
