‘Digital Marketing’ – the type of marketing which is done online – has really taken off in current times. As a result, the job demand in the industry is growing right along with it.
As per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in advertising, promotion, and marketing management are all set to grow at a rate of 8% from 2018-2028 – faster than the average for full jobs.
Why this digital marketing boom?
This is because digital marketing is modern marketing. It is the way today to reach beyond a local audience to a global one, to connect with people where they search for information, socialize, and make purchases of all kinds.
Today, almost 4.54 billion people across the world are active internet users. Of them, 2.05 billion shop online, and they spend even more than they do in physical stores. By 2021, worldwide retail ecommerce sales are set to top $4.5 trillion.
If done right, digital marketing can effectively connect businesses with internet users, including other businesses.
As a digital marketer, one might create and lead marketing campaigns to capture their interest and attention. One might create content to nurture trust and build loyalty. One could spearhead native advertising campaigns on social media for budding brands.
But the best part is that, all of these possible methods to reach target audiences are just the tip of the iceberg! Here are a few more of it:
- Email Marketing
- Content Marketing (By way of blogs, articles, videos, and more)
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
- Paid Search (PPC)
- Social Media Marketing
- Native Advertising
- Affiliate Marketing
With so many people online and so many ways to reach them, the field is simply busting with opportunity, and people are jumping at the chance to get a piece of the online marketing pie.
The only problem is that: In a hot job market, how can you stand out? And, what will give you a competitive edge in the digital marketing world?
The answer might be to get a PGDM qualification.
A modern Post Graduate Diploma in Management program or PGDM Program could verily be your ticket to that big promotion or dream job opportunity. In India, this would make sense only if an aspirant is able to undertake this PGDM course at one of the top B-school in India like Asian Business School (ABS) located in Delhi NCR’s Noida.
Asian Business School is an innovative centre of academic excellence and one of the top B-Schools in India for PGDM, recognized and approved by AICTE Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India.
