Why did you decide to start the Digital Marketing specialization?
Well, I wanted to learn digital marketing like ages before, and I took so many courses and stuff but not one of them was as much beneficial as this course. I started working as a digital marketer but did not have enough experience to fully handle all the stuff, so my company suggested that I would take this course to learn and grow, and I am so grateful that I did.
What has been the most interesting thing you’ve learned through the course you are on?
Well, since I am still in the first course, I would say that learning about the 4 Ps of marketing was really both great and fun. There are many things that I did not know before, and now I feel like I am more confident when it comes to this subject.

No Yet, I’m hoping I will soon get the chance to apply what I learn in my work which is the reason why I took the course from the first place.

Well, I take one hour from my working hours to finish the course, and sometimes I do the assignments on the weekend because they have a specific deadlines.

Well, I would really recommend this course to anyone whose passion is to be a professional digital marketer, and let them know that this course needs focus, hard work and dedication.
