Hi all,

These days digital marketing has taken over the various aspects of the business which was earlier used as the promotional and marketing tool. But if somebody wants to join the digital marketing as a career then it would be a good option or not?

Thanks in advance

    It can really give you freedom and lets you call your own shots.
    That's definitely a good option in my book.

    Plus the fact that the ceiling to make money is not limited relative to working for someone else, imo

    Most people that get into online marketing fail.

    However, there will be those that succeed and it could very well be you.

    Just realize starting out that it's not as simple as so many will lead you to believe.

    However, if you are successful, there really is no better business to be in.

      I have just started to look into affiliate marketing, and what separates the ones who aren't from the ones who are successful?

          Many people fail because failing is a heck of a lot easier than succeeding!

          IMO, online business for beginners is all about the person, the owner, the guy trying to make money online.
          • Many people never bother to learn the details about how to do online business
          • Many people try to buy their way to success and later find that what they bought just doesn't work
          • Many people never apply themselves - they don't actually set up or do the things that are needed to profit
          • Many people have no patience or persistence and they quit before they ever have a chance to succeed
          • Many people make critical mistakes in their execution and never recover from it
          • Many people try to shortcut their way to wealth with spam and scam strategies that fail
          • Many people try IM but find that the cost of success if more than they are willing to invest (in time, work, money or all three)
          • Many people can't master themselves . . . let alone be a disciplined business owner
          • There are probably thousands of other possibilities . . .
          The best to all of you,


          Steve

    I've been at it for several years with a lot of ups and downs. I currently make a living as an Adwords Account manager and it's not a bad gig I must say. At the end of the day it's still a job though so I do want to eventually make a full-time income from info publishing.

    Digital Marketing is The Future and We Cannot Deny This Fact.
    Look at These Mind-Blowing Stats:
    India has about 450 million Internet users (as per IAMAI), which are almost 30 to 40% of the total Indian population. This number will reach its level best in 2017 with the easy and cost effective availability of networks in both urban and rural India.

    Look at how JIO is penetrating the market while Airtel is bringing down costs. Observe how high-speed broadband like Act Fibre, Cherrinet are slowly taking over market shares. Do you remember the last time you focused on those newspapers advertisements or those TV advertisements without switching channels? Well, there is a radical shift in how people consume information. Today, people consume more content on mobile phones and laptops

    Hi Rajeev,

However, if you select a career in Digital Marketing, please specifically select your preferred area. Such as PPC, SEO, Social Media Marketing etc. If You like to start an online business, having thorough knowledge about Digital Marketing is always useful.

    It's an evolving subject day by day. Please follow a recognized Digital Marketing course. There are lots of online resources to gain knowledge as well. Please follow those. I'm learning about SEO and for SEO you can follow Moz Blog and Search Engine Land. Please refer all the resources and keep your knowledge up to date. Also, apply them regularly.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Sure - if you are ok with learning by DOING, not afraid of rapid CHANGE, do a good job of understanding how to APPLY digital marketing methods, tools and techniques to specific industries and are ok with testing/measuring as well as strategy then move ahead. Where many people struggle is with one of these areas - they either want to learn by someone teaching them (so they never get ahead); can't keep up with change - so they may get very good on one platform or with one method but then when that method changes completely in 2-years, they are done; or they think it's all about the strategy and setup when in fact it is MOSTLY about the testing, tweaking and measurement

    The careeer in Digital Marketing is MAKE MONEY WITH DIGITAL MARKETING!

    I mean, if you want to be successful you don't need some old boss of a digital agency who hires you cause you're smart....but to learn how to:

    - identify a niche
    - set up a squeeze page
    - build a list
    - nurture and market that list
    - make profit


    ...And of course go in depth in it. Choose a mentor with good coaching.

    Many people can't master themselves . . . let alone be a disciplined business owner
    I always suggest people ask themselves this question:

    If the Internet didn't exist, would I be trying to "start a business?
    "

    If the honest answer is yes, you might have a chance.

    There will always be a market for expertise, but to get to a level where people will pay you requires patience, trial and error, time, ability to overcome obstacles and criticism AND money.

    Most people quit after 30 days!

    You can literally make a living having mastery over just one thing. SEO, traffic generation, Facebook even Clickfunnels.

    The question is, are you willing to put in the effort to reach mastery?

    Do you mean if someone wants to get a JOB in digital marketing, or if they want to start a business selling digital products?

    Or when you say "digital marketing"... are you referring to general "internet marketing?" Please expound more.

    Digital marketing is a self-driven industry, What I mean by that you can not learn digital marketing without doing it. It's like you always learning something new when you try to execute new things. I must say that going forward there will be a job in three main area that is AI, Blockchain and Offcourse Digital marketing.

    But that digital marketing will be different what we do today

    It's definitely treated me well. I can't complain too much. I've freelanced for small business helping with SEO, SEM, Web Dev/Design, Copywriting, Etc. Now I'm working for an agency which provides more stability and I don't have to wear as many hats.
