Online Digital Marketing is a Momtastic Choice
Being a busy mom has its pros and cons. It’s unlike anything else in the world. From being on the receiving end of a hug from the “bestest” hugger in the world one minute to cleaning up the worst mess ever created with ketchup the next.
No matter the mess (and mess, and mess, and mess), watching the joy and growth of your children is life fulfilling.
Losing yourself in the process…not so much.
How can you, as a runner of errands/solver of problems/kisser of boo-boos busy mom, find the internal self-satisfaction that maybe being pushed to the side?
Enter Online Digital Marketing.
Digital Marketing has the flexibility, both in the field and while learning, any busy mom needs with the added benefit of both being fun and bringing in the moola.
The saying “once a mom, always a mom” is true. That never stops so a career change is more like a career addition.
When you decide you want to enter the workforce again it’s important to find something that you enjoy AND works with your lifestyle. If you are creative and love to watch your efforts bring growth than online digital marketing is a great choice.
A Fulfilling Career Change
How will online digital marketing be a fulfilling career change? The flexibility is key. Flexibility in schedule. Flexibility in position. There’s also flexibility in courses to help you start out or up your game.
A Schedule That Compliments Yours
With school and extracurriculars, kid’s schedules take up most of the day and vary throughout the week. Right now you have the added bonus of having a global pandemic and remote learning thrown in. Having a career that a busy mom can fit into her already hectic schedule is a massive win.
Online digital marketing gives you the freedom to choose when you work.
Maybe your peak work times are after the kids are in bed and before they get up. Perhaps you work better while they’re focused on their computer screens for their lessons during the school day.
Then again, maybe chunking your work time in 20-minute increments throughout the day works best. This works well for new moms, too. You can work while the baby naps or, if you don’t want to give up that coveted “no-baby-time” (no one would blame you!), you can work while wearing the baby without any discomfort to either of you.
A career change to digital marketing gives you the ability to find what matches best for you and your family.
Show Me The Money
The average base pay for a digital marketing specialist is $57,000 according to glassdoor.com.
It’s important to note that this role is considered entry-level in the online digital marketing world, so your salary will only increase with experience and specialization (we’ll be discussing specializations in-depth in another blog).
Being able to “bring home the bacon” in this manner will help to ease some of the familial concerns mom’s face on the regular. No more worrying about how to cover it when the car breaks down again!
Bringing in a good salary means you will also be able to save more for the future. Creating a savings account for things like braces, college, and new cars becomes a reality instead of wishful thinking.
Online Digital Marketing is Full of Work Diversity
