However, motivational flicks are one of its kind and give you food for thought. If your life is heading in the wrong direction, motivational movies can uplift your mood and also makes you consider a perspective that you may never have before.

As in entrepreneur, you should watch the following movies.

The Social Network

On top, we have The Social Network – a movie centred on the real-life account of Mark Zuckerberg from his Harvard days to the point of creation of Facebook and the legal battles he has to go through to sit where he is today.

It is directed by David Fincher who directed, Seven, Zodiac and Aliens 3. With The Social Network, he adds another winner to his long list of incredible films. The movie is a bit overdramatized and why wouldn’t it be? After all, it is meant for audience’s viewing pleasure.

By watching this flick you will realize how a startup is launched and what kinds of issues you can run into if you are seeking to transform the world. You should be both flexible and resilient as a person and that is kind of character you need in order to succeed.

Glengarry Glen Ross

The movie is based on David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play and boasts a star-studded cast including Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, and Kevin Spacey among others. The movie explores the fierce competition that exists in real estate and focuses on such case in Chicago.

The movie is a lesson for people that the real estate world is not a cakewalk and in order to come out on top, you should be willing to lie and betray others. If you exhibit these traits, you are a winner. You can watch if you are willing to delve into the cruel world of corporate or if you are pursuing a career in sales.

Citizen Kane

This gets as classic as it can be. If you don’t aim to become an entrepreneur down the road, watching Orson Welles’ 1947 Citizen Kane is an experience of a lifetime. The story is centred around the life of a newspaper tycoon which is based loosely on the account of William Randolph Hearst.

Orson Welles portrays a character who is on a quest to gain fortune and power. But eventually, he realizes that there is more to life than money and fame. You should watch it in order to learn that launching a business in life is not the only objective of life.

The Pursuit of Happyness

That is not the mistake in Happyness, in the movie, it is pronounced with ‘y’ and Will Smith explains it to his son in the movie why he writes it with letter ‘y’ instead ‘i’. It is the true account of Chris Gardner and is one of the heart-melting stories that will make you fall in love with. The onscreen character portrayal by the veteran actor earned him Academy Award nomination in 2006. Why does it qualify as a motivational movie and a must watch for entrepreneurs? It is because the message is about never giving up on your dreams.

At one point Chris Gardner becomes homeless and has to sleep on streets and public toilets with his son. Since he never gave up on his dream, his struggle leads him to provide for his son eventually. The sort of passion and sacrifice exhibited therein should be on every entrepreneurs’’ list of goals.


One of the most watched flicks in the history of cinema. The story of Sylvester Stallone is pretty inspiring as well. He wrote the script and approached the production house for making into a feature film but the studio didn’t want him to play a lead. But Stallone persisted. He was offered money but he rejected it.

He was then offered considerably less amount of money but was cast as the lead. In the film, we see Stallone as Rocky who’s a small-time boxer with dreams of fighting the BIG fight. He faces the heavyweight champion of the time, Apollo Creed, however, loses. His persistence (as he did in real life) teaches us to never quit.

Upcoming Digital Trends of 2018

Trends keep changing and evolving and there is nothing different about digital marketing trends. With every passing day, these trends take a turn for fresh and innovative ideas. What are they? In this article, we seek to explain the emerging trends like I have shared a file sharing app review before. Bear with us till the end.

Ad blockers

ad blockers

Ad blockers have become quite common with users. No one like the pop-up ads interfering in their browsing experience and hence, people have installed ad blockers. With pop up, ads people either leave the website or they think that website is a suspicious one.

But from a perspective of a digital marketer, it is a bad thing. If your ads are not getting viewed or clicked upon how are you to measure your CTR or ratio. Therefore, the trend of ad blockers is going to continue to flourish. Google, at some point in time, placed a ban on blockers but the revolution doesn’t seem to anytime soon.

Ads can be annoying and often times are of something which is either of no value to the user or displays inappropriate content. Therefore, ad blockers will be preying on ads and there is nothing you can do to alter it, for now at least.

Digital Assistants

Digital Assistants

Siri and Cortana are prime examples of digital assistants. Siri in iPhone devices and Cortana in Windows 10 have completely changed the way we used to search the web or your desktop or anything on our phones. You only need to speak and these assistants will bring you the most desirable results.

Several years back it could not have been possible and would have always been attributed to the sci-fi films of the time or scene from one of those movies. But today, it is as real as the next person sitting beside you. People and digital marketers are capitalizing on their use to maximize searches and business prospects, respectively.

Digital Directors

Also known as social media marketers, the trend of their hiring is on the rise. Every online brand is in need of a social media marketing campaign that will boost their business activity both by way ranking in search results higher and also in terms of suitable content.

Since the social media is an integral part of our lives leads and conversion through them are of immense value. Social media marketers position your brand through these channels to bring you desired outcomes. Digital directors report to either marketing managers or senior product managers and their importance cannot be ignored.



Emails have not become obsolete as many would like to believe. The trend is still alive and kicking. Now even more due to the habit of emailing via mobile devices instead of traditional PC. Hence, marketers are going to continue to send you emails updating you of their offerings and any major announcements. Moreover to stay in touch with you.

From a digital marketer’s perspective, email has and will always remain an effective tool to reach masses. Getting to sign up for newsletters is a great way to build an email list of subscribers. You can then deliver users with information on products, company, rivals, new developments and so on. Too many emails can land directly in spam so exercise cares with the frequency of emails.

In-house Freelancers

The term can be misleading for some because freelancers are the people who work from the comforts of their home and at their own pace. So how can someone be an in-house freelancer? Good question. The good answer to this is that employees from an agency work for a company on a part-time basis or a freelancer but while being on the premises. The definition is changing and so has the business model. It has become more of a hybrid.

In-house, freelancers are those individuals as well who get to work from home but are contractually bound for a certain period of time with the company they are providing services for. Moreover, since freelancers work for a variety of clients at any one point time, this new breed of freelancers will be exclusively be working for that company. That’s digital marketing for you.

Paid search marketing

Digital marketing revolves around search engines which are made up of organic searches and paid search results. Google AdWords present you with paid search results when you search for anything remotely close to that keyword or phrase. SEO and PPC race is on and not slowing down for sure.
