Updated: Mar 14
Did you know that as of January 2021, there were 4.66 billion active internet users worldwide? That's an astounding 59.5 percent of the global population (Source: Statista)!
Why is that number important? Have you ever wondered why you want to read, watch, or buy something? Companies “market” their products and services to sell their goods to new and existing customers, and marketing is used to influence our everyday decisions.
Many companies use magazines, television, or even shop windows to advertise to potential customers. But with the digital age in full swing and nearly 60% of all the people on the planet now using the internet, marketing online has never been more important for companies. Our guest for this Inspiring Speaker interview is Feather Hickox, an expert and leader in the strategic online marketing world. In this interview, Feather shares how fun it is to work in digital marketing and why she loves it! She also discusses advice she would give to her younger self and talks to us about her superpower!
