7 of The Best Digital Marketing Jobs for Work-Life Balance

46% of full-time working men and women reported that their job demands interfered with their family life, according to a survey conducted in 2010 from the 2015 Economic Report of the President.

Work-life balance is what many professionals aim to achieve. It is tough to juggle a successful career, a happy family life, and a strong physical well-being, while maintaining good social relationships, all at the same time.

In the digital marketing industry, professionals are expected to deal with the rigorous demands of their career—high expectations of clients, tight deadlines, in-depth researches, tons of analytics, and roll-out of campaign executions. These career demands often take a toll on other aspects of one’s life.

So, what are the best digital marketing jobs for that perfect work-life balance?

Working-from-home is certainly not for everyone, but with proper focus and time management, it definitely has its perks. A Forbes article highlighted that freelancing offers a lot of benefits, such as time flexibility, less stressful environment, fewer distractions, no daily commutes, and more time with the family. The number 1 benefit as it turns out is work/home balance.

Sometimes, we work so hard to make a living that we forget to make a life. Pursuing a career that you love, whether full-time or freelancing, should not take a toll on the other areas of your life. So make sure that you find that perfect balance suited for you.

    Being a professional in Digital Marketing since last 8 years, I found that, as a profession Digital Marketing is one of the best in the industry and it’s in the beginning stage, and will boom in coming years. This profession is very challenging, always need to be up-to-date on hundreds of tools, techniques, algorithms, data analysis and all. But my opinion is, a person should target to be an independent consultant or start up his own venture after some initial years of employment, if he really wants to excel in true sense.
