Digital marketing managers oversee a company’s online marketing campaigns, creating effective strategies for promoting their brand, products, and services. This includes identifying the business’ target market, selecting the best digital platforms (i.e. social media channels) for contact, and helping develop a memorable, unique brand persona. The process may also involve analysing market insights, helping managers discover new demographical data and methods of communication.
The role therefore requires an expertise of one’s market, the e-commerce industry, and the current trends or developments of the digital marketplace. Technical skills in SEO and a knowledge of common Internet regulations are also a bonus.
These professionals typically work in an in-office team environment, with social media and design software (i.e. Adobe Creative Cloud) as their primary tools.
