The courses are free, they only need your time and discipline. One key thing I always tell people is; It is not enough to do these certifications and leave it, you need to practice while learning, that’s what makes digital marketing fun.
You learn something today, you try it out immediately. When you see the results, you are inspired to continue.
So if you are interested in starting a career in digital marketing, practice, volunteer, create something and keep on practicing, remember, luck happens when opportunity meets preparation #digitalmarketing
