If you are reading this right now, and you are a student of The Federal University of Technology, Akure, I’m glad, because you are about to be fired up!
I’m not sure this is your first time of hearing people talking about digital marketing and if this is your first time, I’m also happy to tell you what digital marketing is. Digital marketing, often referred to as DM, is the use of online tools to grow businesses. So either you are hearing about it for the first time, or you have looked for an opportunity to grow your passion for DM in the past, here is an opportunity from ByteMars- a digital marketing startup that is ready to help you grow your proficiency in digital marketing.
ByteMars, will be hosting participants to a two-day program tagged Ignite 1.0 with the aim of introducing University students to the art and craft of digital marketing and provide them with the avenue to grow as digital marketers over a period of time. This program which is the first of its kind is an exclusive package for students of the Federal University of Technology, Akure.
The event slated to hold from 17th to 18th of February, 2017 will be an avenue for selected participants to learn the basics of digital marketing and also undergo a growth process in form of 3-month mentorship under ByteMars trainers. There will also be the chance of having a tete-a-tete with digital marketing professionals and other like minds.
In a chat with Taslim Okunola, CEO, ByteMars and facilitator of Ignite 1.0, he stated that this is the first in the series of such programs. He said;
“The plan is to ignite the interest of digital marketing that lies in university students. We believe that the university is a testing ground for great ideas and also where you can learn as much as possible with little or no distraction. A typical job seeker has a lot more on his mind like family issues, marriage concerns, etc. But a student is still comfortable with allowances from home and can soak in more knowledge. We intend to introduce this program to more universities in coming years.”

Taslim further stated that;
“It’s for the student that has the passion to learn new things and is enthusiastic about modern technology. The program starts with a master class that will introduce the very basics of digital marketing to the attendees. It will then be followed by a 3-month mentorship that will help these people grow in whatever aspect of digital marketing they’ve chosen to build a career in. The other things needed would be to have a working laptop and stable internet to learn continuously.”
And in case you are wondering if you need to have some level of experience before you can be selected, you are totally wrong because there is no skill level requirement for the program. The program is in line with the goal of ByteMars to help grow the continent by building people into competent digital marketers.
