Investing time, energy and money on getting educated in digital marketing is one of the best investments you are ever going to make.

Whether you wish to start a career as an internet marketer, become a growth hacker or build a massive online business and become a millionaire, you need to have a grasp of the fundamentals of digital marketing.

As Internet continues to disrupt every industry under the sun, it is now obligatory to understand how it works and how you can promote products and services on it.

This is one of the many reasons why I love online businesses. They are the future.

Many friends, blog readers and aspiring entrepreneurs have asked me in the past about resources on digital marketing and how they can get started.

I usually redirect them to authority websites like Quicksprout or Viperchill and do not point to a particular article or tutorial. The reason is that the field is huge. There is no “one guide” that is going to help you get your feet wet. There are several facets that you need to be aware of and have some exposure in.

For this reason, I wanted to create here an evergreen repository of articles that cover the basics of the various aspects of digital marketing. You can start with those and expand as necessary.

Apart from the purely marketing articles, I have also included some posts that show how to leverage your marketing skills to actually build valuable businesses. Make sure to thoroughly study those because they cover the underlying principles in a more holistic way.

There is no particular order. I would suggest just reading the articles in a serial order if you are a beginner or focus on a specific facet of the industry if you have a bit more experience.

Beware though, these are only the tip of the iceberg! Having said that, I guarantee you that if you go through the complete list, you will be ahead of the 80% of the “digital marketers” out there.
