Internship Digital Marketing: Frequently asked questions

What is online marketing?

If you want to do an online marketing internship, you should first deal with the basics of online marketing. Online marketing is mainly about implementing marketing in online channels.

The central components of a classic online marketing campaign are as follows:

  • Company Website
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Search Engine Advertising
  • Email Marketing
  • Online PR
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Mobile Marketing
  • Social Media Marketing

Each of these main components is basically a separate subarea, but they all interact with each other.

What are the job profiles in online marketing?

The online marketing industry is currently growing very rapidly. More and more companies in North America and Europe are allocating their marketing budgets with a focus on online marketing.

This is also why well-trained specialists are becoming very popular in the industry. Online marketing managers usually work in-house at companies and can specialize in one job or even have a holistic scope of work.

External consultants or freelancers as well as agencies are also enjoying increasing demand. In today’s world, anyone who builds up expertise in an area of online marketing can offer companies enormous added value.

What are the learning contents of an online marketing internship?

The learning content during an online marketing internship in a company is very much based on their daily tasks and marketing channels.

In the case of an online editorial department, the internship will most likely focus on content marketing. In a company with an online shop, the internship will concentrate on display advertising or even search engine optimization (SEO).

During this particulat online internship, the focus is on content marketing and search engine optimization. Our training contents are therefore suitable for all those who are interested in the organic sector. The online internship helps you to get to know the basics of search engine optimization as well as content marketing.

Content Marketing Internship: Modern and sustainable SEO

We have experimented with various content marketing strategies in the past, which have worked very well for our own projects as well as for client projects. Content marketing is, therefore, a big focus of our online internship. If you want to be visible online today as a company or as a personal brand, there is no way around creating high-quality content.

In our online internship, you will familiarize yourself with a content marketing process that you can then reproduce for any topic you like and know exactly what works in practice.

What training opportunities are there in online marketing?

Unfortunately, there are no or very few official trainings in online marketing, especially in subareas like search engine optimization or content marketing.

Even in study courses, these contents are treated in a very limited way. Online courses or seminars are a good way to delve deeper into the subject matter, but they are often expensive.

Internships at companies as part of a course of study make sense, but conventional internships are tied to a specific location. This  Online Internship establishes itself as an efficient alternative on the market.

Online internships allow interns to gain insight into companies effortlessly.

Online Marketing Internship: Why does an online internship make sense?

If you want to start a career in online marketing, you are often confronted with new working methods in many companies. It is very common to work online, especially in agencies or small teams.

This working method requires a completely different attitude towards work. During our online marketing internship, you will learn how to communicate effectively and achieve sustainable results with tools like Slack or Asana using the Internet.

Our online internship is also ideal for students in political science, business administration, psychology or law, because it is becoming increasingly important to market yourself or your company or brand online.

I strongly recommend the internship to everyone. I always thought learning on the job was better! You’ll mainly be involved in content marketing and on-page SEO and do a lot of research and writing.

In general, you will learn what you need to know to rank a keyword on Google. You will learn most of this knowledge from video tutorials before putting it into practice. Despite being a fully online internship, I found it very personal and could contact my supervisor at any time.

I really enjoyed the internship and I think it is ideal for every newcomer in online marketing.

The three months passed quickly, and the weekly workload was compatible with my current studies.

The internship is a perfect start to gain a foothold in this industry.

The internship was ideal to make good use of my free time during my studies. I didn’t have much previous knowledge in the areas of SEO and content marketing, and I am surprised of how much I could actually learn.

I am glad to have had this experience, and I am now sure that I want to develop myself in the field of online marketing.

The internship is well structured and I can recommend it to anyone who is interested in online marketing and wants to develop their job opportunities in this sector.
