The type of person best-suited to excel in a digital marketing career is someone that possess certain personality qualities.

  • Passionate – This person has an innate curiosity and desire to create.
  • Innovative – This person can think outside-of-the-box to come up with new and exciting ways of reaching new customers.
  • Patient – Someone just starting out in digital marketing must understand that it is sometimes a trial-by-error process. They must be able to exercise patience with themselves and with the process.
  • Possesses a degree of finesse when interacting with customers.
  • Strong Listening Skills – Successful digital marketers understand the importance of listening to what their customers say and what they don’t say, for the purpose of creating trusting relationships and loyalty. Customers “speak” through their buying habits. It is relatively easy to understand what a customer is saying when they like a given product or service, as it is reflected in their purchases. If they are not responding well to digital marketing efforts, it is important to be able to figure out why this is so.
  • Goal-Oriented – to succeed in digital marketing, it is important to set goals, both short term ones and long term ones, and diligently work towards fulfilling those goals.
  • Possess a Social Personality – Digital marketing requires someone to be a social creature by nature. The types of people that best succeed in this career field are outgoing and extroverted when interacting with clients.
  • Intuitive – Those that make a rewarding career in digital marketing tend to instinctively understand, over time, what it is that their customers want and they strive to deliver it to them consistently.

Digital Marketing is all about promoting your product on digital platforms. So, if you have good marketing skills, communication skills then you already have 30% of what you need to become successful in Digital Marketing. But 30% is not enough. What is the rest of the 70%? It is flexibility, sales experience, branding experience, SEO skills, etc. These are not mandatory but it will have a great impact.

Hope this helps!

It depends on where you want to be, what you want to become? what your interests are?

If your interest is in sales, marketing, social media, content, creativity, advertising and you are the person who likes challenges, creativity then Digital & SEO is something that you can choose.
