I’m the new guy. New to Digital Aptitude, and new to the digital marketing industry as a whole. Because of this, the amount of stuff that I am learning on a day-to-day basis cannot be overstated! Aside from the much needed and much appreciated help from my colleagues, blog posts regarding the current state of the industry have been a lifesaver.
Here is a list of five of my favorite articles that have helped get me through my first month of digital marketing.
Before I give you my list, its important to reiterate that I had ZERO experience coming into digital marketing, so before my first day, I read both the SEO & social media guides provided by MOZ at:
These two guides laid the foundation, allowing me to understand what I was getting myself into. And as with most things, as time passed and I worked alongside some of the best, my understanding of digital marketing began to improve. The first couple of days I started out slow, but after only a few days I started to contribute to a variety of projects, including SEO & social media campaigns that I had learned about in the guides above.
To me, SEO and social media were such broad terms, and still are for that matter, so what I have been doing my first month has been bits and pieces of SEO & social media campaigns. The guides gave me big-picture stuff, but soon it was time for hands-on-experience to fully understand how to get there.
So there you have it!
Although there were many blog posts read, these were 5 of my favorite during my first month in digital marketing. Because of these, and the help from my colleagues, my understanding of the industry has increased exponentially. Now, not only can I see the big picture stuff learned early on, but I also have the basic tools to help my team realize the goals and objectives for each of our clients.
