Digital Marketing - a background of the industry

Digital marketing is one of the most widespread and powerful ways to generate awareness, interest and sales for a company and its products or services. No wonder this creates an ever-evolving and constant need for new professionals to enter and work in the field.

Online marketing has become a key component of most companies' marketing strategy, primarily because of the widespread use of digital technologies, but also because it can deliver outstanding results at low cost and in a short period of time.

The stage for the emergence of digital marketing has been set since the launch of the World Wide Web in 1989. The proliferation of business websites (or directories as they were then called) to modern apps and advances in AI and email technology, combined with the proliferation of wildly popular (and addictive!) social communities, have created an unprecedented demand for digital marketing professionals around the world.

There are seven main types of digital marketing: social media marketing, search engine marketing (SEO), pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, email marketing, mobile marketing, content marketing, and affiliate marketing. A company may use one, several, or all of these methods to connect and engage with its audience and customers online. Most digital marketing specialists will focus on mastering one digital marketing practice or platform and then move on to using others to create integrated, end-to-end campaigns and experiences for their audiences.

If you are considering an internship in the rapidly evolving field of digital marketing, know that it is a great career choice and one that will provide you with ample opportunities to develop your future career or start a new business. It is only your willingness to learn, adapt and cultivate new relationships that will unlock your career prospects.
