Introduction to Digital marketing
Digital marketers are those responsible for making sure you see the right ads for products and services you’re looking for, at the right time.
Much like an expert puppeteer, they’re the hands at work creating and placing ads on sites like Facebook and Instagram. Across the entire web, really.
Ever thought “how did that site know exactly what I was looking for?” It’s all in the magic of digital marketing.Explore digital marketing courses
