Five years ago I started on a journey to learn digital marketing. The this field of marketing is still so new that nobody knew what to call it five years ago. Digital marketers were call online marketers, internet marketers, e-strategists, digital ninjas, and a ton of other names.

There were no degree plans (and still aren’t) that pulled all the skill sets necessary to become an advanced digital marketer. Luckily, by  nature of the subject, much of it was available for free online.

Everything else I found in the books and courses below:


Design Thinking

Visual Communication



Code and WordPress

Software Mastery

High Tech Industry Fundamentals


Marketing In General

Digital Marketing Channels, Analytics, and Automation

Direct Marketing

Marketing Psychology

Other Marketing and Career Books That Have Helped


Faith At Work and BAM

Business, General

Leadership Books and Others
