You know you’re great at what you do. But a client that doesn’t know you, doesn’t know that. One way to fix that? Professional certification. Getting certified is great for building your skillset, but it’s arguably even better for building your brand.
We know there are tons of professional certifications out there, but for Mailchimp & Co, getting certified in Mailchimp Foundations—1 of 3 certifications we currently offer—through Mailchimp Academy is the most important.
With all that in mind, here are 10 reasons why you should take the time to get certified.
1. Up your credibility
You can have a great resume and a great opening line, but some clients will need extra reassurance. Certifications give them the confidence that you can, and will, deliver.
2. It’s closer than you think
Getting certified doesn’t need to be complicated. Mailchimp Academy helps freelancers and agencies grow their marketing expertise easily with courses you take at your own pace, quizzes to make sure you’re on track, and Office Hours with members of the Mailchimp team to help you prepare for the final assessments (which you can retake as many times as need be).
