Consider certifications as an investment for your curriculum, Linkedin profile, website, and other aspects of your business. Here is why:
Certifications can be displayed in a multitude of ways and places. Along with positive customer reviews, certificates are one of the best ways to show off your expertise to potential customers and companies.
Although there are no official case studies, it is highly probable that (numerous) certifications positively influence customer decisions. Moreover, certifications could increase your odds of being hired by a reputable company.
What are the risks? #
There are no risks involved in the process of obtaining certifications, as explained in our “How does it work?” page. This is because you rely on experts who have received these certifications multiple times.
A potential risk would be a real-life situation where you cannot provide what you promised to your customers. Our service targets those who already possess the necessary skills and lack the time (or will) to obtain the certifications.
Do your due diligence when purchasing online certifications, as you would with anything else business-related. For instance, you shouldn’t obtain a Sales Enablement certification when your knowledge is strictly limited to SEO. In this case, we recommend purchasing the Adwords Search Advertising certification to add to your list of skills.
There are no risks in the process itself. The only danger would be obtaining certifications for skill sets that you are unable to perform in a real-life situation.
