Digital Marketing as a career is one of the most recommended options by experts in this field. In India, we see many students graduating every year. Not everyone opts to pursue their career in the field they chose during their under grad. We see many young people shifting their careers into those areas which are high in demand in the current market.

Are you choosing to be a programmer but not interested in coding? Are you learning it just because you are paid high? Don’t worry, there are wide options available in the market for those who are not good at coding but can still be a CXO of company.

Now, why digital marketing? What is the scope of digital Marketing?

If you ask me this question, I will definitely say yesss…. But, why? Because, there is a huge demand in this industry. We see lots of startups coming up globally. Every startup has a product but how are they going to take it into the public? For this you need a source of medium which connects startups with public. The only source in today’s world is internet. Internet is everywhere and thanks to Ambani for this. There is a tremendous increase in no of active internet users everyday and it is likely to reach “900mn in 2025″( source: business-standard). This number is really huge and these users are going to be the target audience for many businesses out there.

To make a career in digital marketing or any in any other field is a big challenge today. Most of them really don’t have knowledge that digital marketing is a billion dollar industry.
