Digital Marketing Courses & Resources
So what’s on offer? I have listed courses I have completed or in the process of doing and what I thought of them and other courses I’d like to add to my list soon! I have also listed a few other resources such as tutorials/webinars or websites I recommend you check out..
The good news… the majority of the courses are FREE or heavily subsided if you are unemployed , so all you need is TIME:)
I recently sat exams and passed the on-line exam - hurray!
Cost : 1190 Euros ( Check website for offers)
Meaty course covering all areas of digital marketing such as content marketing, SEO, Social Media Marketing, Digital Marketing Strategy, Google analytics and much more. Beauty is that the whole course is online, and you can do it at your own pace .
There are lot’s of quizzes to check if you understood the material , all multiple choice, it’s the actual course material you need to work through to get the finer detail. I especially found the very hands on exercises for Google Analytics and how to set up ads on the various social media channels very helpful.
Exam is pretty tough so revision is a must but doable!
26 modules taking you through the basics of Digital marketing with a focus on Google’s products and E-Commerce. I have dipped into this course on and off and may still decide to take the exam to get Google Certified and stay up to date as things change soo fast!
Microsoft Advertising Professional - FREE to be added to my list!
Hubspot Academy - 19 modules - covering every aspect of Digital Marketing, CRM, Content Marketing, SEO - lot’s of videos and exercises, followed by multiple choice exam! I am about to resit the email marketing module, as you’ll only pass if your score is 80% or higher. Definately a good investment ! Cost :Free
Hootsuite Academy - Social Media Certification Cost : 199 USD - not attempted yet
Agorapulse Academy -Social Media Certification Cost : FREE
I recently took this course and found it fantastic to learn how to use this social media scheduling tool . I got FREE access to their Social Media Manager School course which is normally USD 997. Get your free seat here too.. little Christmas present from me to you!!
Facebook Certification Great choice of Free courses covering the ever changing Facebook products. Exam costs: 150 USD per exam. Hope to finish the Hubspot certification first to then check this one out!
TikTok Academy - Free - Have you taken this one yet?
A course is great, having a more personal touch to get insights in the every changing industry will keep you up to date what’s new!
