3 More Successful BYU-I Alumni Advice on Internet Marketing

Bonus Video & Slides: National Paid Advertising with Stuart Draper

I think that the number one thing students need to succeed in our industry is an understanding of how to plan and present a marketing strategy, including presenting and justifying budget for the plan. Now, more than ever, they have to be well-rounded. Knowing PPC is great. Knowing SEO is great, but if you can’t see how it fits in the bigger picture of the business’ overall marketing strategy, you’re not as valuable.

I recommend students get real world experience by moonlighting for a family member that can’t afford to hire a real company, or by doing work on their own site.

In able to be successful in our industry, I would say that you need to have a desire and interest in internet marketing. Obviously without that, you won’t get very far. With that desire, you have to put in work, even if that means extra work, staying long hours, or at home. The thing about this industry is it is constantly changing. In able to be successful you need to be able to adapt to those changes. You need to be someone who can embrace change and be able to stay up to date with those changes. You also have to be creative, in trying new things or ideas.
