Working in Digital Marketing

By December 13, 2012Blog

Working in digital marketing is exciting; it’s a growing industry and entry level jobs give young people a chance to shine. You have to be tech-savvy yet understand the traditional principles of marketing; how to successfully communicate a product or service to consumers. Today bravr discussed what it means to work for us, as well as outlining the core principles of our digital marketing roles.

If you want to work in digital marketing, identify your key strengths and find where you fit:

SEO and Paid Search

To work in SEO and paid search you have to know your numbers, and you have to know what they mean. SEO and paid search is paramount to a website’s success; it makes websites visible and accessible. Without SEO and paid search a website inevitably drowns in the sea of the million websites now on the internet. To work in SEO and paid search you have to have an analytical mind and pay close attention to detail and trends.

  • Analytical
  • Organised
  • Numerical

Content and Social Media

Content is key; over 40% of internet users are on the internet to use social media or read content. We’re in the age of impatience, therefore to work in content and social media you have to know how to instantly engage people and know what makes your target audience tick; how to get the Facebook shares, the ‘likes’ and the retweets. Knowledge of current events is vital…being aware of the trends before they’re ‘trending’.

  • Current

Web Development
