Although digital marketing blogs are huge in numbers, but students still find them critical. The digital domain is highly vulnerable to changes and hence it is very essential for one to stay updated with the latest happenings in this industry. Thus, the only way out is to read A LOT. If you don’t read, you won’t survive.
Although most of the digital marketing gigs prefer using Google Reader but our experts suggest blog subscriptions. To get the best coverage, it is always good to subscribe to different blogs through email. Email aggregators will help you get the best posts out of the lot and in this way you will come across the latest happenings in the digital network.
While people have their own choices of reads considering their areas of interests and topical expertise but our trainers read almost 100 online publications on a regular basis. That’s their way of enriching knowledge on the latest updates and transfer the same to our students.
