Digital marketers are in hot demand. Do you need to upskill?

It is an exciting time to be working in digital marketing as new technologies and platforms are creating constant disruption and change.

As the marketing landscape continues to accelerate, marketers and businesses are trying to keep on top of the new channels, technologies and consumer models that have taken over.

To stay competitive, marketers need to continue to learn and master new skills constantly.

 

The big corporates have been leading the way in digital for a while now but the SMEs are still trying to catch up. Some companies are only starting to put a digital strategy in place and adding digital capabilities to their teams.

With so much transformation happening there is a lot of activity in the market and it is not slowing down! The new year brings new strategies, and with this - new opportunities!

But everyone seems to be a “digital” marketer these days; well at least claim to be! This continues to make it difficult for businesses to find and secure top talent in the market.

Do you have the right skills to help keep you ahead of the pack?

Here is a list of some key skills that are in demand right now...
