The finest way to invest in your independent career

The Digital Marketing Union (DMU) is an online membership of independent marketers. Upon joining, you’ll find a humble, generous, and tight-knit group who share the stresses and successes of solo business.

Why join the Digital Marketing Union?

For all the joys of working independently, solo life can get a bit… solo. Sometimes, you need an answer to a technical question, a sense-check on a proposal, or a place to rant, laugh or rage about a client issue.


Stitch together the office water-cooler, an industry conference, and a catch-up coffee with friends and you’ll have something close to the DMU.

Member-led talks about all things independence. From marketing ourselves and managing accounts to Christmas parties and GIF-offs.

Find a sense of true community amongst peers who take business (not themselves) seriously. We learn, grow, and celebrate in union.

"I joined the DMU whilst planning to leave my full-time job and work for myself and wow, it exceeded all my expectations.


I found a community of supportive industry peers where you can ask all questions openly without the fear of being judged. I built friendships through our Slack group, weekly virtual calls and regular in-person meetups.


I've been part of the DMU for over a year and won't be leaving anytime soon. It makes working for yourself a lot less lonely!"

"Joining the DMU is easily one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made. From having a network of skilled marketers that I can share ideas with to forming actual friendships, it’s been a rock of stability in my career of recent years.


I can talk about the huge value my business has had from being a member, which is immense, but there so much more to it.


We’re here for each other and I’m glad and proud to be part of this group of humans."

"I joined the DMU because I felt lost and alone as a freelancer in the wild. I’d tried other communities, but some were too large, had the wrong vibe or were dead quiet.


I tried the DMU and was blown away by the sense of community. A group of fellow freelancers who support each other and share their knowledge.


I’ve learned a lot and met some incredible people who are great to hang out with in real life."

"Joining the DMU has been the best investment I've made in myself since becoming self-employed and I didn't even know it at the time. I've connected with people across the world and across the digital spectrum.


The entrepreneurial, smart and welcoming nature of those who are in the DMU makes it an invaluable, safe space where we can share knowledge, work, celebrations and rants."
