Are you looking for such a career that is good from a future perspective and life-changing?

You are pursuing graduation or have become a graduate? Are you a full-time employee or run a business?

If yes then digital marketing is one of the best options for you.

I will explain about digital marketing as a career option step by step and clear all your possible doubts in this blog.

Before I tell you about a dynamic and growing field, I want to introduce myself and tell the reason why I am so confident about digital marketing.

I am a corporate employee who has 14 years of experience in multiple domains. I have worked with top MNCs. Gradually, I got fed up with my nine hours job. Because there is no work flexibility.

You have to complete your login hours anyhow. You can’t take leaves whenever you want. You can’t choose your work timings.

So, I chose to make my career in digital marketing. I have work flexibility and can earn money with freedom. I am my own boss now.

Anyone can learn the skill of digital marketing and master it easily. Now, I answer all the questions that are asked by people about digital marketing.

Let’s get started!

Why choose Digital Marketing as a career option?

Digital marketing is a good career option for people who want to work independently. Digital marketing is an ever-changing and engaging industry. That is why there is always something new to learn.

There is a growing demand for people who have digital marketing skills. Digital Marking is in demand and it is the future of traditional marketing.

What qualifications are required for learning Digital Marketing?

To learn this skill, you need not any special qualifications.  If you have passed Senior secondary school (12th class) from any stream, is sufficient to learn digital marketing. But, for getting a high profile job graduation is required at least.

You must be able to operate the computer and use the internet properly.

To be honest, people will be interested in your practical knowledge rather than your certification if you go for a job or freelancing work. So practice digital marketing after learning it to become good at it.

There is one more thing that I want to share with you that it is a result-based industry. If you are unable to convert your efforts into results, you have not done your job. So, become a result-oriented person even in your personal life.

How much can I earn from digital marketing?

It is a very subjective question. Actually, there are huge opportunities to earn a good amount of money from digital marketing. I have explained below the salary as per skills:

  • Fresher – At the beginning of your career, you can earn 25,000 to 30,000 thousand per month as a working professional.  Salary increases as you gain more experience and skills


  • Digital Marking Manager – After gaining the experience of 4 to 5 years, you become a manager, who manages digital marketing professional and ensure the results. At this stage, you can earn a decent amount of money from 45,000 to 1.5 lakh per month plus incentives. If you get an opportunity to work with top-ranked companies as a manager you can earn up to 3 to 7 lakh per month too.

How much time will it take you to learn digital marketing?

People ask generally about the duration of learning digital marketing. Well, it is possible to learn digital marketing in just 3 months, if you are really interested and dedicated to it.

It can take up to 6 months, which is the maximum time. This duration is decided as per the digital marking teaching institutes or professional.

As per me, it all depends on the capability of the student that how fast he can learn and understand.

What do I need to learn Digital Marketing?

You just need a laptop/Desktop and a good internet connection. That is all that you need.


Digital Marketing course full time or part-time?

  • Full-time Learning: If you have a good amount of time then you should go for a full-time course.


  • Part-time Learning:  On the other hand, if you are a working person or run a business then a part-time course is recommended because by doing this you can continue your earnings from your regular job or business and learn simultaneously.

Attending an online course on digital marking is recommended. Because it saves your money, time and you understand the power of digital marketing better.
