Digital Marketers are a unique group of highly skilled people. They need to possess “the ability to listen. The ability to influence. Change skills. An open mind. Curiosity. Those are some of the key attributes that marketers’ need to have,” says Lee Tonitto, CEO of the Australian Marketing Institute.
Digital marketing is an umbrella term for the marketing of products or services using digital technologies, mainly on the internet, but also including mobile phones, display advertising, and any other digital medium.
Digital marketers use their skills to get good results for their clients and will research the marketplace, analyse the results and develop segmentation strategies based on their customers’ needs.
So, where could digital marketing take you? “You could work in an agency where you generalise and take on many roles for various clients, or you could use your niche skills to totally transform an individual organisation,” advises Tonitto.
