Since its inception in 2020, The Marketing Mill has trained nearly 50 young people in content writing, SEO, web development, and digital marketing, hiring more than half of them. And they plan to double this number by 2022 by offering paid internships and SEO and writing courses.
The company was founded in South Africa but has since spread its roots to other places in the world. Many members of the team have operated from places such as Greece, Bali, Amsterdam, Spain and the USA, but most are back in SA now.
In 2020 Travel Tractions expanded its business offering to include The Marketing Mill and improve its rapidly growing internship program. At the same time, the agency created and implemented an online content marketing course with a strong focus on SEO copywriting to be used internally.
Now in 2021, a second course focussed on SEO has been created to advance the internship offering even further. As explained by founder, Matt Davison, "we are very passionate about showing people how to make an income online. And when Covid-19 hit our travel marketing agency, we had a lot of free time on our hands. It made a lot of sense to develop a course to formalize our learnings in a structured way".
The team has plans to create even more courses and release them to the public at a later date to educate even more people. To stay in the loop on all things related to the digital marketing course, you can sign up for course updates on learn.themarketingmill.com.
More about the paid internship
As many graduates will tell you, finding an entry-level position after graduation is no easy task, especially if you have no prior experience. Standing out from thousands of other applicants is nearly impossible without a giant neon sign saying “pick me”.
Most graduates also dream of traveling the world, but can’t afford to do so without working. With The Marketing Mill, not only can you earn money but you can also work from anywhere in the world. It is not unheard of to find Travel Tractions team members typing away while camping in the bush or at a beachside cafe.
With a focus on learning and remote working, an internship at Travel Tractions offers the perfect entry-level job for graduates or even students. With part-time and full-time options as well as flexible hours, gaining work experience and knowledge about digital marketing has never been so convenient for young adults.
Plus, the interns get one-on-one mentorship from a senior team member during their first six months, helping them to expand their skills and deepen their knowledge. During this time they learn a range of tasks including writing, editing, SEO, social media, and other aspects of digital marketing. And if the individual shows dedication and ability, there is a potential for a longer-term employment.
