Employers: What are the Benefits of a Digital Marketing Apprentice?

Most employers only pay 5% of the total costs of an apprenticeship for new starters, and there are plenty of incentives for training with apprenticeships. Aside from the low costs associated with this form of staff training, there are numerous other benefits for businesses!

Make Things Easier For Your Customers

Being able to order online, browse your full catalogue, contact you instantly via live chat or view your available appointments on a website will delight your customers. Fewer and fewer people want the hassle of calling a business up, so it's high time your business had a digital presence.

Become Highly Contactable

If you're not in the office, you're not manning the phones. If your shop is closed due to the pandemic, how can people reach you? Having a social media presence, a contact form on your website and a live chat facility can mean orders at all hours of the day if you wish!

Have a Daily Presence In Front Of Your Target Market

If you have an active social media presence, you could be appearing in your customer's feeds every day, reminding them that you're there! If you keep up regular interaction, social media is also a great place to build connections and loyalty with your customers.

Appeal to Digital-First Markets

If your business has no presence online, generations who have Google as their first point of call will likely never find your business. Gen X, Millenials and Gen Z will nearly always search and view reviews, recommendations and testimonials on social media before ever consulting paper marketing materials. Don't miss out on a huge potential market.
