Businesses are increasingly seeking high-quality talent to manage online marketing strategies internally, said Justin Belleme, owner and founder of JB Media Group and JB Media Institute. The JB Media Institute provides training for individuals seeking jobs in this emerging field and also allow businesses to develop their own strategies and train internal talent or interns, with oversight from successful professionals who provide these services every day.
“The JB Media Institute stands out because it’s taught by results-oriented professionals at the top of their game, even when the rules of that game are changing every day, said Rose Jenkins, a JB Media Institute student. We could see all of the concepts we were learning in action, through real-world, real-time case studies–drawn both from JB Media’s work and students’ own projects. The skills I learned this summer will allow me, as a communications professional, to offer more valuable services to clients in an increasingly online world.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics employment of advertising, promotions, and marketing managers is expected to grow up to 20 percent from 2010 to 2020. Advertising, promotions, and marketing will continue to be essential for organizations as they seek to maintain and expand their share of the market. Advertising and promotions managers will be needed to plan, direct, and coordinate advertising and promotion campaigns, as well as to introduce new products to the marketplace. They will also be needed to manage digital and Internet marketing campaigns, which often target customers through the use of websites, social media, blogs, live chats and other online tools.
