Why Digital Marketing?

“There is a high demand in Singapore for specialised e-commerce, digital marketing, and data science talent, but a shortage of supply, with companies seeking leaders who can drive digital strategy while anticipating technology disruptors.”
– Straits Times, 2019

Even with the market trends going up and down, the industry has been seeing an upward stroke of Digital Marketing courses offered within places of Singapore. This trend made news as people are taking courses for digital marketing introduction and implementation of such practices to their own businesses.

It has been regarded as the next big marketing thing by industry experts and it seems to it that it is true. Digital marketing courses and academies have been giving courses and certificates for learning the best practices with digital marketing.
