It goes without saying that stepping up your career is the best way to move up in the world, and the easiest way to do that is to grow your skillset.

It’s a new year, and that always gets us thinking about what we can do to improve ourselves and our position in life. With the professional world now functioning largely online, it’s worth thinking about honing your skill growth towards abilities that will help you to keep up and stay on top of your game.

But how are you going to do that?


There are a couple of things to think about when considering how to best improve yourself, to see maximum benefits from your efforts.

Firstly, no matter what industry you’re in, being proficient in all things online is going to put you in the best possible place professionally.

Whether you’re selling fresh produce, working in administration, or even thinking about creating a start-up to sell your handmade crafts, it’s undeniable that you’ll need to know how to maximise your presence online. Whether you’re promoting yourself or a product, being visible on the internet is a necessity.

Secondly, and with the above facts in mind, consider that most industries are desperate for employees with skillsets that are up-to-date and relevant to this need for online visibility.

How is any business going to get a new customer’s attention if they don’t show up on the first page of a Google search for their product or service?

Or if their ads aren’t being seen in the right places to drive customers towards their website.

If you could offer an employer (or your own business) the ability to not only analyse and understand the function of all the online elements of their company, but the ability to use that information to improve their company and raise profits, you’d be an indispensable staff member.


All of these skills form part of digital marketing, which is certainly not a new type of marketing, but it is an under-skilled sector in most industries.

So how can you learn these skills?

Have a look around at some blogs using search terms like ‘digital marketing (insert your industry title here)’.

See what ideas you can find about skills that would be useful in your industry, and talk to your boss about them.

You could check out and enrol in one of our public workshops or seminars.

You can also ask your boss about booking some in-house corporate training. And if you are the boss? Well, it shouldn’t be too hard to convince them!


It’s a new year, and that means it’s time to step up your professional game.

But where do you start?

When you start looking at your options, it can be utterly overwhelming.

There are so many companies offering digital marketing training, and it’s hard to know who to trust to get you where you want to be in 2019.
