As a student at Vienna University of Economics and Business, I had the pleasure of being taught by one of the most successful digital marketers and early adopter of the new work lifestyle in the industry, Bettina Wittmann. Her approach to teaching was unique, and her achievements in the field of digital marketing were truly inspiring.
It was no wonder that she became my role model, and I jumped at the opportunity to work with her and keep learning from her.
The Benefits of Learning from a Successful Digital Marketer
When I first met Bettina, in 2021, I was in my third year at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, where she was my digital marketing lecturer. Due to the pandemic, online courses made it difficult to communicate with people in class. However, from the day I started taking Bettina’s classes, I felt connected and socially engaged, as if I was attending classes in person.
Her success as a digital marketer and her exceptional communication skills intrigued me. She became an influential idol to me and other students, who enjoyed listening to her, practicing what she taught and obtaining valuable knowledge.
Since the university has a diverse student body, Bettina interacted with each student throughout the semester and made them feel comfortable reaching out to her. I aimed to work with her one day, and in June 2022, I achieved my goal by joining Bettina’s company, weBOUND marketing.

My Journey as a Digital Marketer

Influential Projects in Digital Marketing: Successful Collaboration and Personal Growth
One of the most significant projects I worked on under Bettina’s guidance was the relaunch of weBOUND marketing.

As her assistant and social media marketing manager, I was responsible for promoting the launch on our social media channels and generating buzz around the event. It was an exciting time, and I was proud to be a part of the team that helped make it happen.
Another project I was involved in was developing a new website for a client. Bettina allowed me to manage this project, and I was responsible for leading the communication with the client, understanding his needs and wishes and organizing the freelancers. It was a challenging project, but it was rewarding to see the website come to life and receive positive feedback from the client.
Moreover, as Bettina’s assistant, social media marketing manager, bookkeeping assistant, and more, I had the opportunity to get insights into everything about running a digital marketing agency. Bettina trusted me with the whole responsibility of managing the agency’s social media channels, and she was always open to my ideas and innovations.
