You can start your internet marketing career by getting training in any one of the above Sub-Branches of Internet Marketing, or you get a course in all. Obviously, getting training in all sub-branches of IM would be very beneficial in terms of long career goals.
The costs of these courses vary with place and medium plus with different institutions. Anywhere from $100 to $200 would cost you for individual course and $500 to $1000 for a collective course in Internet Marketing.
Duration for these courses will also vary, but would be anywhere from 2 weeks to 8 weeks.
It is only my expectations. You can also get training from local institutes which will cost you less money.
