Let’s start at the very beginning. A very good place to start. To become a master of marketing, as with anything in life, you need a solid foundation to build on. Marketing is an essential part of the consumer-driven world we find ourselves in and a strong base is vital if you want to pursue a career in this ever-growing field.
In a marketplace saturated with products and services to suit every taste and every consumer, from a chic young urbanite who knows what he wants to an aunty who won’t budge in her brand loyalty, your brand needs an identity strong enough to stand out from the crowd.
With the dawn of social media, everyone has the potential to be a socialite. At parties, at your desk, on the patio – with a click, snap, tweet or post, messages are instantly out there. To keep up with the times, marketing has become a social affair with many brands looking to capitalise on the immense benefits that social media marketing can offer. After all, socialites are adept at “spreading the word” as it were, as they flit from social media platform to social media platform.
Digital Marketing is the way forward in our contemporary business climate. Without it, you’ll lose out on business, big time. But what is cause without effect? What is a plan without results? There’s no point in sending a digital “shout-out” to the masses, if the masses aren’t tuned in. So how do you know if your message is being heard? You need to be equipped with the right analytical tools.
There’s nothing like feeling that you’re out of touch. Smiling and nodding along will only get you so far in the complex world of digital marketing. If you come from a traditional marketing background, the cyber sea can seem like a scary place. But it needn’t be.
