Your website will be the first impression you give your customer, so it is worth investing in something that looks and feels professional, because clients WILL judge a book by its cover!

Consider which services you are going to offer and how you can make them different to have the edge over your competitors. Also think about your online reputation and how you can get your work ethic across to others. Use customer reviews and portfolios of completed work to visibly show success you have already achieved.

It is your responsibility to keep yourself acquainted with the fast-paced changes that come with a digital marketing career.

Be passionate but patient with the process, remember everyone had to start somewhere.

Be goal orientated, set yourself goals, both short term and long term.

Have a social personality, you are more likely to excel in this career if you are outgoing when interacting with clients.

Think you are ready to take on the competition?

Before you start! Remember there is some prep work to do:

  • Take an e-course online in Digital Marketing Training or working under the supervision of another person who has shown a successful digital marketing experience. There are many web seminars and courses available online.
  • Follow a number of established digital marketing sites on different social media platforms. Pay particular attention to their advertising platforms and which one generates the most visible traffic.
  • Build a network of experienced marketing experts. Take the time to develop partnerships with these people for the purpose of learning how to improve existing skills and acquire new ones.
  • Create and promote your brand and use your digital marketing ability to impress prospective employers. You can get your name out there before you have finessed your list of services.
  • Becoming certified by taking a popular digital marketing course, which are available online. As digital marketing recruiters are becoming more selective of potential candidates, something as simple as being a certified specialist can lead over another candidate.
