Marketing in general, is an ever-changing profession, new tools, techniques, and strategies are being added and changed on a daily basis. These ever-changing marketing strategies, tools, and techniques require marketers to have two sides: an “artist side” and a “scientist side.” Creativity is needed to imagine and create campaigns that will engage consumers. The analytical side, or scientist side, is needed to measure and quantify a marketing strategy.
Inbound marketing is promoting a company through blogs, podcasts, video, eBooks, e-newsletters, whitepapers, SEO, physical products, social media and many other forms of content marketing to attract customers throughout different stages of the purchase funnel.
This inbound marketing has become the go-to strategy for modern marketers. It creates a necessity for good writing skills.
Visual content is what grabs consumers’ attention which makes it a very valuable marketing resource. One of the newest emerging form of visual content is video marketing.
Social networking has greatly changed the way marketers are interacting with consumers. This tool creates a significant importance on digital relationships that the marketer must have.
Email marketing is still a very important tool for marketers to use. However, people receive many emails a day and many times promotional emails find themselves filtered to spam. Creating an appealing design with worthwhile information is an essential skill for marketers to possess.
Marketers are facing more and more pressure to show ROI on their campaigns. When marketing performance is tracked, measured and analyzes, marketers are able to better see which campaigns are working well and which aren’t.
