Find your niche
Learning can either be vertical, that is gaining knowledge to climb the hierarchy, or horizontal, whereby you master your niche by gaining maturity in the different approaches and strategies. While both are important for a career growth in digital, it is essential to find your niche.
That sweet spot where you feel comfortable in trying new stuff. It is not about staying in your comfort zone, rather it is focusing on one particular aspect of digital marketing and mastering it.
We believe that it is passion that drives the most successful professionals.
Set up a blog or a Facebook page and start creating content related to your passion. The more content you published, the better you will rank for your chosen keywords.
One good example is undeniably Peachytales blog. What started as some pictures on Instagram from Anoushka became a real phenomenon in Mauritius with a dedicated blog and ultimately a Facebook Page giving amazingly succulent receipts. It is worth the read. We were amazed!
Anoushka’s work even appeared on Air Mauritius blog hence gaining great authority and exposure to an international audience.
As a conclusion
If you decided to enrol in a digital marketing course, you need to be aware that it is far from being easy at times. Let’s be honest, you won’t walk on a red carpet.
Competition is out there and there’s a popular belief that everyone can do digital. But, good digital is from those who are passionate, dedicated and creative.
