Gone are the days of going into the advertising world and working on graphics to go up on billboards along highways. These days, marketers are learning how to use self-service ad managers to launch marketing campaigns. 

Big social media platforms like Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn, and others are all launching self-service ad managers to make it easy for any business to reach their target markets. As Business of Apps states in their article on ad managers, “there is a clear trend in digital advertising; all ad platforms are moving towards Self-Serve to increase their efficiency and to reach their target audiences.” 

Running paid ads on social media networks is a great skill to have, but it’s difficult to learn without actually running ads on these platforms for real businesses. Thankfully, there are a lot of businesses on Acadium that are looking for help with their social media advertising. By working with these businesses, apprentices are getting real world experience in media buying by running real social media ad campaigns.

If you’re looking for a real-world opportunity to work on paid advertising on social media here are several businesses on Acadium right now looking to mentor you.

Find these mentors and more by signing up to Acadium where you can create a profile and match with real businesses looking to mentor you in all areas of digital marketing.
