"Whether you are new to digital marketing or want to expand your marketing skill set, there is sure to be a free course available online" continues Business 2 Community.


A local plumbing contractor trying to get his business found online.

A recent college grad who just accepted a marketing position in a manufacturing company and is in charge of increasing the brand’s social media reach.

A digital marketing agency content manager who is tasked with creating a content strategy for her clients but has no background in search engine optimization.

What do all of these people have in common?

They all need to learn the skills that it takes to be successful in digital marketing.

A recent article by HubSpot, 5 Essential Skills Marketers Need to Succeed This Year, included an infographic from TEKsystems listing the skills that are in demand by marketing leaders. Organizations investing in their marketing strategy are seeking knowledge and experience in key areas of digital marketing.

According to TEKsystems’ research, here is a list of the skills that marketers need to succeed.

Digital Advertising:

  • SEO/SEM
  • Digital business analytics
  • Digital project management
  • Graphic design
  • Pay-per-click analytics

If you are working for a small agency or local business, you may have responsibilities in several areas of your firm’s marketing department and will need a broad range of skills.
