Question

Is Free Digital Marketing Course is Good?

If we talk about digital marketing, you don't need an explanation. Its already on the internet in form of blogs, articles, and etc... etc...
what we are gone to discuss is of free course to this dinosaur of the digital world.
Many institutes are offering courses for free as well as placements.
yes, you hear it right.........placements!
I am learning digital marketing techniques from the last six months and I am paying a huge amount for that and then this free concept comes.

Is it the right thing what I am doing or let's start free courses well?????
kindly research and find out yourself.
And post me in comments.
thanks

Warning signs.

Free courses are usually worth what you pay or "what time you invest." Free courses usually have no instructor to pose questions to.

Also, be aware that SEO and it's kind is not set in stone. RANKBRAIN changes what works weekly or more often so the sure sign you are being feed bologna is any course that tells you what works. These folk need to sell SEO (and such) so they want to come off as experts. If you do encounter folk that lament about how fast SEO and such changes or how you must measure the results you have found a gem of a person or course.

And all this is utter nonsense if you don't have a product that sells itself. You see too many trying to SEO their *rap to the top. Let them do that and spend your time on great products from great companies.

Why do you think Baidu and Amazon are where they are?

If there's free stuff, get some of that free stuff!

I believe it's really beneficial to start looking for free courses first, especially when you're still familiarising yourself with the basics of digital marketing. Even if there's no instructor you could bombard with questions, or not that much depth, the goal here is to learn the basics. Heck, I've started with free articles from different blogs before enrolling in an online course! (I actually still do it LOL, currently into video marketing)

When you have a good grasp of the basics, find a specific specialty that you would want to be expert on and then invest your money and time there.

Yes, Absolutely You can Go For Free Courses But only the one

Saying there are a lot of marketing courses online today is a massive understatement.
I find it quite frustrating because no one wants to learn the things which are outdated and people in the digital marketing fields are selling courses paid or unpaid just for their benefits which will be no use of yours and at the end, you will lose the time and then regret it

Being myself a digital marketer, I figure I’m not the only one facing this situation so I researched some of the best free courses which will offer you so much and will make you stand out.


When reviewing each free course on this list, I paid attention to:

Who was teaching it;
How many people had taken it;
What the average review was;
What level of marketer it was for

So here is the list of courses you can try and learn from it-

1. HubSpot Academy Content Marketing Certification Course ( For Content marketing)
2. Intro to Social Media Advertising with Buffer (Very valuable course)
3. SEO Training Course by Moz ( Moz is very well known in the SEO industry )
4. Google Academy for Ads ( Learning how to run google ads by google )
5. How to use Instagram Stories for Business ( By Later a very well established brand in INSTAGRAM industry )
6.Google digital garage ( All the basics of digital marketing you can learn from it the course is very well prepared )

The above courses are all free you can try.

Other than that If you want to get a Paid digital marketing course.

You will get a decent placement if you all the above courses. I hope this helps.
