  • Marketing is one of the most important element of a business. A good product will remain waiting for the customers if an effective marketing is not behind it. Now marketing is shifting to digital marketing arena and the information regarding the product is being given to the customer right on the device he is working. It could be a smartphone or tablet. So the marketing through the digital media and internet is emerging as one of the big areas and definitely it makes sense to join the bandwagon.

    So there are two ways of addressing the task of carving a career in this line. First is go for a crash course in digital marketing and then join some agency who are already in this line and work there. Learn the tricks of the trade and switch to greener pastures.

    Second way is to go for a detailed course on digital marketing and learn its techniques and subtleties and then with the help of a few people or employees start your own work.

    In any way one has to get the basic knowledge and skill in this field. Today there are many online portals which are training people on this emerging area and there are colleges and institutions which offer this course.

    Some of these institutions are -

    (l) Institute of Digital Marketing

    There are many online portals also giving training on digital marketing. Some of them are Udemy, Skillshare, Hubspot, Coursera, Google Academy, Alison, LinkedIn and HubSpot.

    You are already working in BPO sector and now want to change your career to digital marketing. What I will suggest is understand the basic of this subject thoroughly and then go for skill enhancement by learning the aspects element wise. Please remember that when you switch to new areas what is with you is only knowledge and you have to create networking and business relations by using this knowledge judiciously. So life will be tough in the beginning and a lot of hard work will also be required but keep yourself devoted to your interest and career with full zeal and vigour and definitely success will be with you.

    All the best.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Thank you all for your valuable answers. Is that possible to work as an Intern at the age of 33 years to gain some experience in Digital Marketing?

    Thank You,

  • Its a good decision as digital marketing has a long term career opportunities whereas BPO experience wont help much in career growth. I'd list some good institutes where you can get a good placement too after complete the course.
