When I was younger, I remember my teachers preaching to me ‘practice makes perfect.’ I guess, in their defence, when you consistently work on one thing over and over again, you typically become an expert in that field. It was a simpler time back then. But then I was introduced to digital marketing.
When it comes to the online world, everything is constantly changing. Whether it’s an algorithm modification, new developments or the move towards a new mobile device, there’s no doubt it can be hard to stay on top of the cyberspace game. So if you’re a business owner, you work as a digital marketer, or you simply want to crack that infuriating SEO, it can be extremely difficult to keep up with all the changes, no matter how much you practice. Frustrating, right?
The bad news is, 2018 will be no different and evolution within the online space won’t stop for anyone. So unless you are Google, you probably won’t even hear about most of these changes. But never fear, we come bearing good news, too (phew!). We have put together a list of our favourite resources who will help you stay up-to-date on all things digital marketing in 2018.
