As of 2016 the term Project Manager has been quickly gaining popularity as a result of a PwC survey that claims PMP certification to be the fifth highest paying certificate. There are also studies shown that the number of certified project managers in an organization directly translates to the productivity and project success rate. This has then led to a surge of job vacancies for project managers.
Getting certified should be a breeze decision to do. But why is that many people put it off or simply give it up the 22% higher salary chances?
The cost of the certification is the first thing that would be a point of consideration
Yes, we agree that the cost of a PMP certificate is pretty costly. When you add up the cost of the exams, text books and even the training you may find yourself questioning if it is truly worth it. Well one option that you could consider should cost be the factor that is hindering you, is to sign up as a member of the Project Management Institute (PMI) which would earn you some savings when signing up for the PMP test. It will also be much cheaper to retake the exam as a PMI member should the need arise. There’s also a plethora of other benefits that come along with a PMI membership but that’s a whole other article.
Once you’ve sorted the financial aspect of it,
you will then need to carve out the time from your schedule to prepare for the certificate.
Studying and training aside, to pursue a PMP certificate you will need to meet their prerequisites, one of them being a number of hours of project management experience. This experience would need to be well documented, further consuming your time.
Getting PMP certified is no easy feat.
This is one of the main reasons that deters people from pursuing a PMP certification. The PMP is considered by many as one of the hardest exams and certifications to master. This may be because of the number of questions that need to be answered in the relatively short amount of time of the test. It may also be because you cannot simply memorize your way to pass the test. Though it is pretty heavy on the theoretical aspect, you will still need to have some amount of practical knowledge and real-life application to ace the test.
All these things considered; we still believe that the PMP certificate is one of the best ones out there.
It wouldn’t be one of the most high in demand certificates if it was meant to be easy to obtain, would it?

You have a Facebook Page with a lot of content, but nobody
is engaging with it. You run advertisements, but cannot seem to land sizeable
leads. Your ad cost is so high, you’re losing money for every customer you get.
If you are saying Yes and
nodding repeatedly right now, you are not alone. Too many businesses are
finding it difficult to get a sustainable foothold on Social Media. And it
doesn’t help that there isn’t a Philip Kotler of Social Media Marketing we can
all rely on.
Social Media is so new and moving so fast, that by the time
a book of a theory comes out it would be obsolete. So every industry leader in
this field is doing well by experimentation.
The First Law of Thermodynamics
states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, merely transferred from one
form to another. It is applicable to everything within the confines of Earth’s
atmosphere, including Social Media.
Assuming that all brands start
Social Media with the intention of becoming one of the most engaged-with
accounts among its community, a price must be levied. And this price either
comes in the form of time or money.
If money is your choice, it can
be invested into leveraging on a competent and dedicated Social Media team,
boosting posts to gain better reach, and running advertisement campaigns to
fasttrack your ROI.
revolutionary products do not gain market traction because their attention to
marketing wasn’t enough. It is important to build strong and memorable hype,
else nobody will know you’ve launched anything.
Contrary to popular belief that it is now easier to reach
customers, the bottomless noise in Social Media actually makes it harder to
hear you out.
Product launches are incredibly complicated business, and
require many intricate parts to run alongside each other like clockwork. We
highly advise hiring an external marketing team specialised for these kinds of
work. But it also helps to know the key tips to doing it, so you’re always kept
in the loop of the process.
