Advantages of a Social Media / Digital Marketing Qualification
With 1.86 billion users on Facebook, over 600 million users on Instagram, over 319 million users on Twitter and 467 million members of LinkedIn, I think it is safe to say that social media is not going away any time soon.
With all these potential customers in the social media space, it is no surprise that businesses of all types and sizes are trying to improve their social media presence. Some are seeing fantastic engagement, increased brand awareness, and a rise in sales – others not so much. There is no right way to use social media marketing, but there are definitely some wrong ways.
A whole new career path has sprung up around the area of social media and digital marketing. A quick search shows nearly 40 jobs displayed in the social media and digital marketing in the Caribbean and this is only set to grow based on what has happened in other parts of the world.
