Some tips to help you decide which digital marketing school is best for you

1.      The type of classes they offer

Choosing a school that also offers one-on-one classes is a good choice as this allows you to learn with a hands-on approach.

Remember, digital marketing is a practical course hence the need for practical learning.

Not forgetting that this will help you create a portfolio you can use in marketing yourself upon graduation.

In addition, it gives you the opportunity to better network with other industry professionals.

2.      Their flexibility

If you are a busy professional, it goes without saying you might not be in a position to attend day classes.

That being so, consider choosing a school that offers part-time classes too.

At Kenya Online College, we teach our digital marketing course on a part-time basis (3 hours/day). This way, you can learn digital marketing while still working.

3.      Their trainers

To ensure you get the best training, choose a school that is taught by industry experts.

What other better way to become good at digital marketing than learning from the masters themselves? People who have worked in the digital marketing field for years…

Just as a reminder, our team of trainers has worked (and continues to work) in our digital marketing agency.

In other words, we teach you the raw practical digital marketing skills we use on a day-to-day basis.


Now, you might note that we have not mentioned tuition fees.

This is because we believe that education is an investment with a good ROI.

In other words, it’d be better to pay for something expensive and be good at it than pay for a cheap course only to come out with little practical skills.
