The best thing about digital marketing is that literally anybody can begin in the field, without any technical skill set or pre-acquired knowledge. Since the minds of students are at their peak in terms of creative power during their senior secondary or college education, they can easily gain expertise and skills that the modern-day digital marketing industry seeks.
The only prerequisites that 12th class students need to learn digital marketing concepts is the basic knowledge of how to use a computer and a search engine such as Google and Bing.
Why you should choose digital marketing as a class 12 student
There are many reasons why you should choose digital marketing during or after passing your 12th standard:
Numerous well-paying job opportunities
The unemployment rate is very high among engineers and commerce graduates. As a result, it is high time that students adjusted their dreams and aspiration according to the changing time and needs of the contemporary industry. In India alone, there are millions of openings for digital marketers, with a pay-scale ranging anywhere between INR 15,000 – 4,00,000, depending on your skills, organization and the location
Gain globally-recognized certifications
There are many internationally-recognized certifications in digital marketing which will provide a huge boost to your resume, for instance Google Adwords certification, Bing certification, Facebook certification, etc. The best part, however, is that these certifications don’t take too long to complete!
The courses are short and effective
Depending on what all modules you are willing to learn, you can complete a course within 3-6 months. Quick learners though may just require 2 months to be a pro at it. At CIIM, for instance, we offer more than 90 modules for an individual’s all-round skill development.
As a class 12 student, we know that you cannot devote long hours or travel to the institute daily for your course. That is why you can enrol for online classes that will hardly take 2 hours a day. This way, you can learn digital marketing from the comfort of your home at a preferred time of your choosing.
Launch your own business/startup
You might have heard about the success stories of many entrepreneurs who didn’t even attend college to reach where they are today. These people had a vision and zeal to learn something new every day. You too can set up your own business once you have completed your course. All you’d require is an internet connection and a computer.
Gain multiple specializations
Having multiple specializations is a huge plus point when it comes to exploring an industry as diverse as digital marketing. Therefore, don’t just stick to one specialization; become an expert at all major marketing methods, viz. pay-per-click (ppc), search engine optimization (SEO), social media marketing (SMM), email marketing, content marketing, affiliate marketing, etc.
Earn money with affiliate marketing
Many class 12 students already have an existing blog or vlog which they can monetize with affiliate marketing. Many affiliate marketing networks such as Amazon and Ebay pay decent commission from the sales generated through links on your blog or vlog. So, if you already have some decent traffic coming over; with a digital marketing course, you can learn about the right affiliate marketing techniques.
