Are you new to Digital Marketing and intrigued by the career opportunities this industry could entail? In addition, are you interested in things related to digital media or digitally connected devices? If you are then your next best step is to join the Diploma in Digital Marketing here at NZIE. Still on the fence about taking the plunge? 

Here are 5 reasons why digital marketing could be right for you:

REASON 1: You like hanging out on social media and want to get a job out of it. Or better yet, make a career from it! 🤑

From creating and setting up Facebook Ads, to photographing, recording, or designing social media content. As well as, influencer marketing with Instagram and YouTube bloggers + vloggers. Believe it or not, these are all *actual* legitimate jobs related to the world of social media. And guess what! The diploma has a WHOLE term dedicated to social media marketing.

REASON 2: You’re looking to diversify your skillset and become a jack or jill of all trades.

Become a creative unicorn and harness your skills within a variety of digital marketing related areas. From website design, content marketing, digital design, Google Ads, search engine marketing, social media, data analytics, and so much more! This is great if you already have the expertise or a background specialisation closely related to this field. It’s also great if you want to upskill in some of the most in-demand skills of the decade!

REASON 3: You’re passionate about professional development and want to boost your employability!

Maybe you’re job hunting because “covid19” wasn’t very nice to you. Furthermore you’d like to invest back into yourself. For this reason, I’ll tell you what, #treatyourself and take a year off to study and upskill! Or on the flip side, you’re one of the lucky ones, but you’d like to lock in your job security. In addition, maybe you’re even aiming for a promotion? And as a result, you want to bring a highly valuable skill set to the table. Oh yeah, I see you. 😎

REASON 4: Took a career break? Travelled for a bit? Started a family? And now, you’re wanting to make your way back into something flexible with remote working opportunities.

The coolest part about digital marketing is that the only thing you need to succeed are:
(besides the skills + expertise taught in our diploma programme)

  1. A laptop
  2. Solid wifi connection!

That’s all you need to get started #laptoplifestyle 💻

REASON 5: You’re running your own business or supporting a friend/family in business. In this case you want to learn how to DIY a successful Digital Marketing strategy.

You’d prefer NOT to pay advertising agencies to do it for you because you want to save on costs. Or you want to oversee your own marketing team that you are hiring/upskilling. Subsequently you want to have a solid understanding of digital marketing as a whole.

Do any of these reasons sound like you? Which one stood out to you the most? In fact, majority of students join our Diploma in Digital Marketing programme for these exact reasons above. As a result, they’ve now transformed their career opportunities. Along with boosting their earning potential. More importantly they’ve saved their own business, and are now enjoying the benefits of being a Digital Marketer.
