Quickly I took my phone out and googled “best unisex salons around me”. 

I got a list of saloons from which I picked the one that had 4.5 stars but before getting inside,   I read few reviews of that salon and I came to know that the hairdresser named “Nik” is the best.

So, I requested Nik to do my hair and I was very happy with the service.    Now you can understand how a brands digital footprint is so powerful like a word of mouth marketing.

Week 4 – Free Digital Marketing Training Module

Now you have gained the theoretical knowledge on understanding the Digital Marketing concepts.

We have to apply the knowledge to a business and check how it works, what kind of business impact that your campaigns can create.

To apply the digital marketing concepts you need an actual business with specific goals and objectives.

If you’re an entrepreneur you can apply to your own business. In many cases, people don’t have their own business and you need some hand-holding so that you don’t burn your fingers. 

It’s always better to learn from experts who have prior experience in digital marketing

Where can you find them?

Off course in a Best Digital Marketing Agency    For people who don’t have time in joining a digital marketing agency, we would recommend you to create a blog using WordPress and it doesn’t require much of coding knowledge.

This blog can be used a business website to bring in visitors by applying digital marketing concepts.

Finally, you’re in and around a group of digital marketing experts, who can guide you through the practical and on job roles.

Generally, on-job training in a digital marketing agency will not be a set of pre-defined tasks that need to be completed day by day. Instead, it will be a combination of routine and ad-hoc activities that continually check your understanding in various aspects of digital marketing. While it might be a time-consuming phase for beginners, it will ultimately provide them invaluable exposure.

It also depends on how your skill sets are assessed. You might have joined the agency to learn SEO, but the Digital Marketing Expert will see you creating good Social Media Posts.

Now, you will be diverted to learn Social Media, it’s always better to sharpen your skill rather than starting from scratch.   Anyway, once you master Social Media you will be able to grasp any digital marketing concept at a rapid spread.

Generally, the internship program will be 1 month to 3 months long.

Digital Marketing companies have flexible options as well. We would recommend – https://socialorange.in/digital-marketing-internship/
