With the rise of tech startups and other digital products in the marketplace, the demand for digital, growth, and product marketers is in demand. According to research carried out by Demandsage, the digital marketing industry is predicted to reach $806 Billion by 2026. These stats show how robust and rich the industry is. Almost every company or product needs a digital, product, or growth marketer to help drive product growth and dominate the marketplace.
Due to the high demand and the fast growth of the digital marketing industry in Africa, Gamic has partnered with Blurpe to sponsor 50 young adults to learn digital marketing skills.
Blurpe is an e-learning platform where anyone can take marketing courses for an affordable monthly subscription. There are unlimited courses on Blurpe ranging from Email Marketing to Web Development, down to Google Ads Mastery and even TikTok Marketing. It’s popularly said to be the Netflix of digital marketing courses. With Blurpe, people don’t just get access to these courses but also internships, job opportunities, and projects that can help them implement what they’ve learned and fuel their career growth.
In light of this partnership, the CEO & Founder of Blurpe, Milton Tutu, said “This partnership reinforces our mission to empower African youths with the right skills that will make them relevant and employable in the marketplace. It also positions us in closing the gap and filling the employment demand of digital, growth, and product marketers in tech startups.”
Blurpe has also launched a marketing and business community on Gamic. With this community, digital, growth, and product marketers will have an avenue to connect with and learn from other professionals like themselves that can help them grow their careers and boost their skill sets.
Joining a professional community like Blurpe has several benefits including easy access to valuable information, networking opportunities, professional development, collaboration and idea-sharing, support and guidance, and a sense of belonging and connection to others who share common passions and interests.
According to Ukeme Okuku, the CEO and Co-Founder of Gamic, “Our partnership with Blurpe aligns with our mission of connecting and supporting communities around the world by creating a collaborative and successful environment for their growth and success.”
Gamic is a community chat app for friends, gamers, creators and communities with features including a wallet for managing digital assets, a decentralized exchange for trading assets, and advanced community messaging tools. On the Gamic app, users can chat with one another, share content, and collaborate on projects, create and join vibrant communities based on their passions and interests.
In his words, “We’re building the future of communities because we believe in the power of blockchain technology and the potential for Web3 to connect people in the most imaginative ways.”
