So, January is finally over.
And how’s 2019 stacking up so far? Have you managed to stick to that rigorous new exercise routine you set yourself, got back in control of your finances after Christmas – and found yourself well on the way to learning something new?
Well, one out of three isn’t bad.
To help you get at least one of your resolutions back on track, here are three new things you could learn this February.
Where would the world be without great marketing? Well, you probably wouldn’t be reading this article, for one.
In fact, marketing impacts just about every aspect of our lives – from the products we buy, to the media we consume. As a result, experts in the field are always in high demand. And becoming an expert may actually be easier than you might think.
The Learning People are offering you the chance to sign up for their Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing all throughout February. Not only does it cover a wide range of key marketing principles, such as SEO, social media marketing and marketing strategy, it’s also DMI accredited.
The Digital Marketing Institute, or DMI for short (N.B. start getting used to acronyms), are global leaders in marketing training. They’ve certified more professionals to a single digital education standard than any other certification body.
In other words, you’re in good hands.
