Are there any great free online marketing courses?

I never thought I would miss school once I started working but I do. The reason I miss school is not that I do not enjoy my job. On the contrary, I really love my job. I miss school because I feel like at school you get to learn new skills every day which is not the case at work since you do the same thing over and over again. At the rate in which technology is advancing, it’s quite overwhelming to keep up with all the new knowledge. I would like to improve my skills and learn new ones. I believe taking free online marketing courses would really benefit my marketing career. However, I am not aware of any good free online marketing courses with certificates. Do Berkeley online classes include free marketing classes?

I was in the same situation a few years ago. I felt like with every passing year
technology brought about new marketing ideas I knew nothing about. In marketing, it is your job to ensure the company’s brand is recognized and the company is making consistent great profits. To keep your job, you cannot afford to slack on the job. Therefore, you always need to be informed about new marketing strategies. Since it is not possible to go back to school every time a new strategy is introduced, free online marketing courses with a certificate can really come in handy.

I did some research and discovered that HubSpot Academy offers some of the best courses with certifications. I got a content marketing certification and an inbound marketing certification. I have to say that this was the best decision I have ever made. Taking these courses enabled me to do my job better and made it possible for me to consider marketing opportunities I could never consider before because I did not have the required skills.

After completing my classes and getting the certificates, I decided to look up other free online programs I could take to improve my skills. You can choose a great free online marketing course from this list.

  • Smart People Internet Marketing offered by Copyblogger
  • Viral Marketing: Steps of making contagious content by Coursera
  • Content Marketing offered by QuickSprout
  • HubSpot Academy’s Email Marketing Certification
  • Google’s Digital Marketing Course
  • Social Media Marketing Diploma by ALISON

Berkeley also offers an amazing online marketing program. The only problem with the Berkeley online class is the fact that it is not free. Every student is required to pay an estimated tuition fee of $5,500. However, this is a great investment if you want a comprehensive course about marketing. However, if you only need to add a few skills to your skills set, this might be a very expensive investment for you.

As you can see, there are so many online marketing courses you can take to improve your skills and be better at your job. The only thing you need to do is to select a course that is in line with your career goals. For instance, if you plan on becoming a social media marketing guru, it would make more sense to go for a course in social media marketing of digital marketing as opposed to traditional methods of marketing.

There are numerous places online where you can get free online marketing courses with certificates. However, I would advise you to be cautious about which marketing courses to take. This is important because there are so many unaccredited institutions that offer free certificate courses. It is very risky to get your certification from such a university. This is because most employers do not recognize or trust certifications from unaccredited institutions. If your intention is to get a certificate that will help you get further in your career, I would recommend Berkeley. Although you will have to pay for the course, you will get your money’s worth and there is no doubt that the certificate from Berkeley will make you stand out. If Berkeley is too expensive for you, there are many affordable online marketing programs you can try. Just do some research and you will identify a reliable and affordable program.
