Hey there,

This is my first blog post and I decided to start with some advices about how to become a marketing Pro. So, let’s start! I apologize in advance for the grammatical mistakes 🙂

Marketing is a way of thinking, it’s not just the speciality at university. When someone tells me that works as marketer I always ask him “What exactly do”. I love marketing because it gives you a freedom in different directions. How to become a marketing Pro in a few steps (according to me):

1. Define your strengths

if you are a beginner, I recommend you to write on a piece of paper what are your strengths. They are a mixture of your talents, knowledge and skills. What is your passion? What are your weaknesses? What career you want to build?

2. Be Certified

Everyone should have a desire to learn! In the Internet there are many free and paid courses for marketing. Be careful, because sometimes many courses can deceive you! Appreciate your time! I recommend these courses:

Google AdWords Certification – “is a professional accreditation that Google offers to individuals who demonstrate proficiency in basic and advanced aspects of AdWords”. There are 6 courses:

  • AdWords Fundamentals;
  • Search Advertising;
  • Display Advertising;
  • Mobile Advertising;
  • Video Advertising;
  • Shopping Advertising.

HubSpot Academy – I love their blog, containing useful advice. The free courses are:

  • Inbound Certification;
  • Email Marketing;
  • Inbound Sales;
  • Content Marketing;
  • Sales Software;
  • Growth-Driven Design;
  • HubSpot Design.

Moz Academy – learn about SEO, link building, social media and etc. The choice is yours!

Alison – the courses are for beginners and advanced marketers.

There are many more courses and I promise to write a separate article about it.

3. Connect with other Professionals
