Digital Marketing Competencies:
Do you have them?

A client can be a B2C business or a B2B business or both. Each business has its unique selling proposition and positioning to the target market/customer. The business strategy and all marketing campaigns need to be customer-centric. The customer journey in each of chosen digital channels should drive customer engagement and eventual online sales.

For ensuring eCommerce sales, the marketing strategy should appeal to the business needs of the of both B2B and B2C Clients. The DM campaigns should also appeal to the emotions of the employees of the customer organizations to have favorable decisions. A marketing manager equipped with DM competencies can influence both situations. 

A strong foundation on the core concepts of digital marketing is necessary in developing these competencies.
