Digital Marketing Expert FAQs
You can call someone a ‘digital marketing expert’ if he or she has extensive knowledge and experience in using digital channels to build brand awareness and generate leads for a business.
Digital marketing experts should have advanced knowledge of:
- Social media
- Search engine optimisation (SEO)
- Email campaigns
- Online advertising
- Digital analytics
- Conversion rates
- Using online platforms to help business achieve its goals.
Beyond the basics, a digital marketer should also know how to use analytics to spot the weak points in the company’s digital marketing strategy and develop solutions to improve performance.
Businesses usually hire a digital marketing expert to take care of the overall digital strategy or just provide consultation work on a specific aspect such as social media, SEO, conversion rate optimisation, etc.
The first step in finding the most suitable digital marketing expert for your business is to be clear on your marketing needs.
Do you need to redesign your website? SEO? Google Ads? Social Media?
And take a closer look at your marketing team. Are they equipped with the right skills and know-how to strategise and execute the most effective campaigns to help your business?
What are the marketing strategies that you suspect your competitors are doing but you haven’t gotten around yet?
These basic questions can help you identify the right type of digital marketing expert to help your business.
Even though some universities and community colleges in Australia are now offering digital marketing courses, there’s no single authoritative body that bestows the title, so it is often difficult to discern real experts from the wannabes.
At a minimum, you should choose an expert with the most of the following qualifications:
- Educational background in marketing, communications, business, design, commerce, or related fields
- Direct entrepreneurial experience
- At least five years of managing business-oriented digital marketing strategies
- Proven track record in bringing results to a verifiable list of clients
You may waste a lot of time and money if you work with someone who poses as an expert but in reality has entry-level skills and zero experience.
So you need to do your due diligence, explore around and always check the portfolio and client testimonials.
Ideally, you should hire the expert before you launch your business.
This will help you come up with a plan for discovering your target market, developing the messages that will best resonate with customers, and the most suitable digital channels for disseminating your message.
If your business is already operational, here are the common signs that it’s time to hire a digital marketing expert:
- Your website is not getting enough traffic
- You have seen your competitors running ads on Google or Facebook
- You’ve tried conventional advertising but it’s not helping you make money
