Scope of Digital Marketing in Chennai
Digital marketing is an industry that is global, no matter where you work from. Each and every company in each and every industry- be it healthcare, pharmaceutical, furniture, lifestyle, sports, publishing, technology, etc.- needs a digital presence. And for this, they turn to digital marketing professionals. This means that even if you don’t prefer working locally or even nationally, you can pitch to international clients and build up an impressive portfolio, all from the comfort of your homeland. Not to mention, the pay is good and the creative challenges that come up are more rewarding and satisfying. This means, yes. Whether you are an office employee who is looking for a promotion in a digital marketing role. Or an office employee looking to go freelance. Or a fresher looking to break in the industry by the sheer virtue of their skills, then yes, this program is for you.
You can either work independently as a freelancer or on a contractual basis. If it’s seeming difficult to make ends meet in the beginning, you can also work dedicatedly with an organization or digital marketing agency. This will help you to put your skills into practice in a business setting and also help to quickly build your portfolio. Initially, you’ll either work as a trainee or directly grab the position of an Analyst. Then, you’ll steadily progress through the ranks, moving from an analyst to an expert to an assistant marketing manager and finally, the marketing manager. Each level will require you to juggle more responsibilities and become more adept at handling client relationships and crafting strategy. Once you nail the manager role, the next role will be the absolute zenith of marketing- the Chief Marketing Officer!
However, it takes close to 8 years to progress to this role. If your performance and results are outstanding, though, you can progress a lot faster. At each step, you’ll need to be fluent in and ahead of the currently trending technologies and practices. You’ll need to sharpen your communication skills since you’ll be collaborating and coordinating not only internally between teams but also externally with the client. Creativity and having a sense of what the audience would like (sometimes without them knowing it), is also a must. upGrad’s Digital Marketing course in Chennai will help to foster and cultivate these necessary skills. Overall, the job is full of challenges and demands, but also immensely rewarding since you get to work with a variety of interesting (and sometimes difficult) clients!

These numbers aren’t set in stone and will vary for each organization, depending on whether you work from the office, remotely, with 1 company or with a digital marketing agency.
