Marketing and advertising are both very interesting fields that evolve with technology, though the principles always remain the same. Advertisers are always in high demand, and learning how to market and advertise products and services can be very beneficial for your career and if you ever want to start your own business in the future. If you’re taking an advertisement college course, you’ll find that there is a lot of reading to do and a lot of studying on your own. The field hasn’t changed much over the years, the only things that have changed are the channels and technical details, but you’re still dealing with people and psychology. That is why you’ll find yourself facing stacks of books written by advertising legends, some from the sixties! You’ll also have to learn the modern methods, and everything together makes up for a very busy semester. Here are a few tips to make things just a bit easier for you.
You can pretty much find information about anything online, but when it comes to advertising, you’ll find so much content you won’t know where to start!
· Follow the greats, like Neil Patel, and subscribe to their blogs. Read their articles, get to know the field from people who are successful it in today.
· Look for magazines with interesting articles about advertising. Start with the big ones like Forbes, and save the ones that look like they’re written by real professionals.
· Follow advertising content on Pulse on LinkedIn and join groups with advertising professionals to see what they’re talking about.
· Subscribe to relevant channels on YouTube for great videos about the history of advertising and modern tips. This is a great resource for people who are more visual learners.
· Join forums for students so that you have a place to ask questions when it’s time to study for the exam or do your advertisement homework assignments. Ask your professor if there are any college forums for students, sometimes these are monitored by the teachers who answer questions.
· Hire a professional tutor to be there whenever you have advertisement questions or when you need help with your advertisement studies.
Usually, when you think of a tutor, you imagine hiring someone to come to your house and help you do your homework or study for an exam. That is a regular tutor, and there are many problems with hiring one:
· It’s hard to find one that can teach the material that you need because you’re limited to your neighborhood or surrounding area.
· Because they are harder to find, it can sometimes get expensive.
· Availability is a problem, because if you do find a tutor, you have to adhere to their schedule since finding another one will be even more challenging.
Online tutors, on the other hand, are tutors that teach you or help you via live video lessons or calls, depending on your need. Because of this, they are often a better choice:
· You are not limited in location, so finding a tutor is much easier.
· Because there are many different tutors to choose from, the prices are competitive and much lower than the fee regular tutors charge.
· If one tutor isn’t available on the days and times you need them, you can find another. Finding someone that suits your schedule is no longer impossible.
So how do you hire a tutor?
Hiring a tutor is simple and only takes a few minutes. Once you find a tutor that suits you, you can start studying for your exam, or schedule lessons to go over the material taught in class. You can even talk to a tutor for last minute advertisement questions and answers when you get stuck!
