The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation. With every business scrambling to build, or grow its online presence, the demand for competent digital marketers is exploding too.

Rabbi Professor Danny Gavin, the founder of award-winning digital marketing agency Optidge, explains that digital marketing is an amazing career choice for the frum community.

“Few families can survive on one income. Digital marketing is a thriving, burgeoning industry. It’s ideal for frum people who want a fulfilling, flexible, and well-paying career path. It’s especially promising for women who value work-life balance. It offers the option to work from home  – without compromising on their income potential or settling for a career they find boring.”

Adjunct professor Gavin teaches one of the most popular MBA courses at University of Houston – “The fundamentals of digital marketing” and is passionate about helping students succeed. 

“Many of my student students entered my class confused about what career they wanted to pursue, or unhappy with their current career path. They didn’t want to “fit in a box” or “be trapped doing the same thing day after day. They wanted to use both sides of the brain: right-brain creativity + left-brain problem solving and strategy.  After my course, they found their calling. They now work in massive agencies, corporations, NPOs or run their own businesses. The course lit their brains and hearts on fire – and allowed them to fly”. 

Danny emphasizes that you don’t need a college degree to succeed in the field. You need a solid grasp of the fundamentals plus a strong portfolio to get a foot in the door.

“If you’re curious, willing to learn new things, and enjoy a challenge, you will excel in digital marketing,” says Gavin.

Gavin’s passion for teaching digital marketing has led him to launch “ODEO Academy”.  ODEO Academy is a high-level foundational course; similar to a year-long graduate-level college course plus an internship. 

It’s ideal for those with no experience in digital or marketing. It’s also perfect for people who have some experience but want to sharpen their skills. 

The course has one goal: that students walk away with the ability to land a great job in the industry. 

“Many online courses have content-heavy focus – which leaves the student feeling isolated, overwhelmed and not accountable to anyone. ODEO Academy is not a regular online course. 

ODEO Academy is a one-of-a-kind course due to the 4 key components.

  1. High-level, engaging and crystal-clear video content online
  2. Weekly graded challenges, quizzes, and assignments to put the theory into practice
  3. A vibrant online community and support system, along with weekly live interaction with `Danny to answer questions and give guidance
  4. In-depth final project with a real business, giving you a solid portfolio to use to find a job.

“The first thing any potential employer asks for is your portfolio. After this course, you’ll walk away with a strong portfolio that proves your competence.” – says Danny

If you’re a high-school graduate, newly married, or looking for a new career path to support your growing family, or even want to understand digital marketing better so you can hire the right employees or agency you can find out about ODEO Academy below.
