What is Dive In Tae Digital?

Making digital marketing fair for everyone

Digital marketing is essential to the success of all businesses, from one man bands in rural locations to enormous global brands. The issue is, without healthy budgets, SMEs are turned away from marketing agencies and left to fend for themselves. With no time to upskill and no budget to pay someone to do it for them, where does that leave small business owners?

Digital marketing also fosters an elitist job market. Not got a degree? You won’t get very far. The majority of entry-level marketing jobs require a university degree… but why? Ask around any marketing agency and you’ll hear every degree under the sun, from fashion to history, politics to theology – hardly of much relevance to marketing. Having worked in digital marketing for a combined 15 years, we know the traditional career path doesn’t work. It’s old, out-dated and quite frankly, unfair for so many.

What if we could create affordable digital marketing interns, who are trained by experts, to transform SME marketing and give businesses access to tools and strategies that are currently out of reach? Dive In Tae Digital opens the doors to natural talent and makes digital marketing a level playing field for everyone, from all walks of life.
