Towards the end of the sharing, Martin had given some tips to the students. In order to stand out from everyone during the interviews, one of the tips he mentioned was the benefit of owning a personal website. Having a personal profile website can differentiate one from others and help with building a personal brand.
Second, after 3 years of heavy involvement in the digital marketing world, the pace of new technology, algorithm and trend is extremely fast. He opined that students will be more advantageous if they are able to adapt and innovate the latest technology.
As Malaysia is already a mobile-first country where it is normal for one person to own more than one mobile device, he also suggested utilising the mobile apps to create quality videos and photos.
