Although we’d like to think that this article has taught you everything you need to know about inbound marketing, the truth is that we’re just getting started. (One way to spot a marketer: we love the sound of our own voice.)
You should seriously consider getting an inbound marketing certification if you intend to make inbound part of your job. HubSpot offers afree inbound certification course, with 5 hours of lectures over 12 courses. There’s even a final exam.
Another popular inbound certification is fromDigitalMarketer Lab. While it’s not free, it also comes with a lot more benefits than HubSpot’s course, including access to live webinars and forums full of friendly marketing professionals and business owners.
Just keep one caveat in mind: even with the education that these courses provide you, there’s no substitute for real-world marketing experience. Certifications are almost always a springboard to something better, not an end goal in themselves.
Learning on your own is great, but if you like a little more guidance or prefer hands-on learning, consider investing an in-person inbound marketing workshop. Marcus Sheridan and George B. Thomas are two of the most highly-renowned HubSpot and inbound educators in the world. We're proud to offer workshops with them and several other talented, experts on our team.Learn more about workshops & education here.
