How to Become a Digital Marketer?

Digital marketing is a fast-growing and demanding career that offers the flexibility to work on exciting projects, collaborate with top companies, and embrace the laptop lifestyle from anywhere in the world. In this blog, I will provide the insights you need to help you kickstart and succeed in a digital marketing career.

Hi, I am Dilshad Mirsha, a Digital marketer in Calicut, Kerala, India . Welcome to the blog, the place for proven marketing strategies. Becoming a digital marketer has been one of the best decisions I’ve made and it promises a fulfilling and lucrative career. Away from flying business jets, digital marketing allows me to choose where I work, engage in exciting projects and achieve financial success.

I entered the digital marketing field over a decade ago and have witnessed its constant evolution. In this blog, I aim to share what I knew when I started digital marketing – knowledge that could save me time and money. Let’s dive into the most common question: Do you need a marketing degree? The answer is no.

When I had a marketing degree, its value was limited. Most of my marketing knowledge comes from self-study, audiobooks, blogs, and online articles. Formal education has its place, but it is essential to weigh the investment of time and money against the value gained. Many successful digital marketers didn’t graduate, emphasizing the importance of knowledge, understanding, and experience.

The best way to learn digital marketing is through practical application. Whether you’re aiming for a job or starting your own agency, experience is critical. Beware of quick courses or reading a book because true mastery requires constant study and practice. My journey started with building websites, leading to learning design, SEO, social media, email marketing and more.

To succeed, be a T-shaped marketer – a broad understanding of topics with deep expertise in a few. Digital marketing encompasses various sub-disciplines such as content, SEO, PR, email, design, development, advertising, social media, branding and video. Find your passion and focus.

Start your digital marketing journey by learning basic marketing fundamentals. Understanding timeless principles is as crucial today as it was a century ago. Check out my blogs on Introduction to Marketing for a great start.

Marketing is my passion and I am happy to share my expertise with you. Join me on this journey and let’s explore the fascinating world of digital marketing together.
