building digital skillsThere are three essential skills digital marketers should master to become more valuable and be able to land more clients.

Skills form the foundation of any lucrative career path. Without acquiring the right skills and knowledge, it’s impossible to bring value to the world and get paid handsomely in return.

Here at the Digital Marketing School, we believe that digital marketing is the most valuable skill you can learn in today’s hyperconnected world. We know this because we’ve seen first-hand how this profession has positively transformed not just our own lives but also those of hundreds of our students.

With digital marketing, you can provide value to virtually any business by helping them grow while charging a premium rate for your services. Not only that, but the shortage of skilled talent ensures there are always plenty of opportunities, especially with the current surging demand.

However, digital marketing isn’t just one skill. There are many elements involved in building digital skills that you can master to unlock your greatest potential. 

Here are three important skills to take your value as a digital marketing consultant to the next level. 

1. Master the Art of Paid Ads

Paid ads can be extremely effective on digital platforms like Facebook, Google, and YouTube. They allow you to instantly drive traffic, attract new leads, and generate sales.

However, there is definitely an art to paid ads, so you’ll want to master this essential skill to avoid wasting your money on ineffective campaigns. Using our proven strategies, our students successfully run simple online ads that yield exceptional results. In fact, these ads are so effective that clients are happy to pay $2,000 each per month for them.

And the best part? These ads are replicable, meaning our students can copy and paste their way to success by delivering results for multiple clients simultaneously, yet only taking 4 hours of work time per day.

2. Become an Expert at Copywriting

Copywriting is incredibly powerful. It is the art of writing content that persuades people to take a desired action, whether that’s to sign up for your newsletter, follow you on social media, attend your upcoming event, or buy your product.

Copywriting is a super valuable skill because it is used everywhere in digital marketing. If you can get good at it, you’ll be writing conversion-boosting blog posts, killer ads, highly engaging video scripts, compelling product descriptions, and more.

And, even if copywriting isn’t your cup of tea and you prefer to outsource it, having a good grasp of what effective copywriting looks like will help you hire and manage your staff more effectively and make informed editorial decisions.

3. Hone Your Communication Skills

Communication is our third and final skill of importance. Good communication is essential for building rapport and trust with potential and existing clients. It’s also about keeping clients in the loop by updating them regularly and listening well so you can take feedback onboard.

When we say communication, we mean all forms of communication. That includes text messaging, email, voice calls, video calls, and even face-to-face in-person interactions. If you’re lacking in any of these areas, it’s definitely worth bringing your communication skills up to scratch.

If you can hone your communication skills, it’s going to result in greater success, more loyal clients, and higher-paying clients, not to mention the numerous benefits it can also bring to your personal life.

If you’re ready to take your digital marketing skills to the next level, including those we’ve listed above, we’re here to help. The Digital Marketing School takes over 25 years of experience in marketing and teaches it to you in a condensed, easy-to-learn way.
