We, who are involved in education, can make this change, but we need some national policies and support from businesses, also said Assoc. Prof. Momcheva.



If а couple of years ago we were talking that mobile marketing is the future, then the future has already happened. Users of mobile devices are more than those using desktop devices and this superiority was palpable for any business. There is an emerging trend called "Mobile First", since over 50% of users visit the FB-page of our business, our corporate website and e-mails sent via mobile devices.

We must not ignore the fact that Bulgaria is a very good destination for Outsourcing of digital marketing as a growing percentage of young people can speak English and possess computer skills.
