How to get started a career in digital marketing.

What's up? Everybody? Thitiphon Tiemchan (แชมป์ ธิติพล เทียมจันทร์) aka. Champ is here. Today. We're going to talk about how to get started in a career in digital marketing. I get asked this all the time people switching careers or recent College grads or

people trying to get into the industry. It's not that hard. It will take a few years. It will require a lot of hard work, but the steps are very very simple first and foremost read everything. You can go

to brandingchamp.com . I find this to be the most valuable sources follow all the links, find your favorite blogs. They have great content there. Then start a blog of your own make a test company try to implement some

of the stuff you've read. Step One write read stuff and then try to implement it. The blog is the easiest place for you to try because there's plugins you can get on WordPress you're forced to essentially do the

things the whole work required to do a little bit of marketing the prep work before marketing happens then get three to five wins. And reach out to startups that have launched on product hunt or TechCrunch and offer your

help for free what I mean by three to five wins. It's very important that on steps to you actually get wins figure out what you're good at figure out what not. Maybe you're good at but you don't suck

at that one can actually work for you. You really get a writing Contour promoting content or Facebook ads or social media updates, whatever it is brighting. You're an email copy whatever that is offer that help that you're good

at. Three to five things to startups that have launched on product hunt for TechCrunch and make sure you offer for free. It's almost like an internal informal internship then get a real internship use that use that experience at

that you're free offering to startups to get a real internships at a start-up or marketing agency. You're going to do a ton of grunt work. It's gonna be hard but that's the stuff you're going to need to know

to really get good at marketing. I Amend working at startups because it's fast paced things change. The goal is a moving Target. It may be amazing because you're going to love what you do, but it's great loading and

the agency side. It's awesome because you get to learn lots of different business models what works for one instant B2C B2B, you know, all the different business models and types of marketing that work and don't work in specific

Industries and it's lightning fast lots of hard work moving deadlines and really big goals again. Looking for but this is where you get hair on your chest if you want it and then let's say you've done this. This

is probably six to nine months within this process find a mentor reach out to your favorite bloggers and ask specific questions. This is where if you get stuck in doing anything above a mentor play in your advantage, you

can ask very specific questions to get unstuff. Don't reach out to a mentor and say will you be my mentor or blogger and say will you be mine? Reach out to people and ask specific questions and overtime with

communication. They will unofficially become a mentor. Maybe they will officially become a mentor but nobody likes vague commitment. So be specific and you will get answers if you email me today saying, how do I do this this and

that I will likely tell you exactly what you've done or I'll ask you what have you done so far quick tip is to email people on Saturday or Sunday mornings. It shows that you care shows that your hard. The

next step is to attend a marketing conference or marketing event. The great thing is there's lots of things on meetup events. There's lots of conferences almost every area now, make sure you look at the pros who's going to

be speaking and connect with them beforehand. I recommend if you have favorite bloggers or people you want to meet go to those conferences email them in advance email them to grab coffee. The likely say no, but then when

you catch them up, Up catch and catch them up and you see them in person. They might recognize you or you have a better chance. It's not a cold conversation or maybe you can say hey, can I talk

to you between the break here, you know during day one or day two or whatever great way to build this relationship with people now you've done this is your probably a year into like really doing content marketing or

digital marketing or any type of marketing right? It's time to update your resume and get yourself a real job a big boy job as a marketer. Specialist marketing associate entry-level. You get paid anywhere between 30k and 45k. Okay, so

you're moving careers that's going to be a pay cut but who cares digital marketing is very very lucrative. You get paid when you start hitting manager level keep learning and testing. Those are the two ways to keep their

skills sharp join a start-up or marketing agency because you're going to learn the facet. It's gonna suck. We have to work the hardest but there's no way around getting that your hours and time into it and that's it.
