The current market gives a huge opportunity to the Digital Marketing Specialist to twist or change the company current marketing strategies to cope up with the latest marketing activities. If we look from today onward the companies will never require a high level of Marketing Managers to be hired to get the better result they will just require an applicant with excellent Digital Marketing skills.

As we know that the products or services have different targets and consumers which the marketing person have to identify and promote them in a unique way.

Tarek Reda, what would be your advice for people aspiring to be a part of or already are a part of Digital Industry.
"Purpose" is a term, which I use every now and then to corroborate a decision. "Purpose" helps me decide one channel vs the other or more spends vs less. Similarly, when one is wanting to be a part of this industry or is already a part, I hope he/she has done so not because Digital is the most exciting option right now, but because his/her digital career has a unique "Purpose" in his/her career path.
