You will get exposure to a real-life digital marketing agency and its daily operations. Digital marketing ‘at the coal face’ employs many more skills other than learned digital marketing techniques.
Each of our clients are different in personality, in aims of their businesses and how they define success. Responding to the different needs of our clients and putting that into practice through the outputs of their accounts requires someone who is comfortable communicating with people. It is vital therefore that the successful candidate is happy to talk with people face to face and on the phone for those communications that simply cannot be dealt with by email.
Learned digital marketing techniques when put into practice often need to shape shift to enable us to achieve the aim of the client account and this requires the ability to think outside of a defined criteria. It is vital therefore that the successful candidate is able to look at the outcome that is required and change approach upon recognition that a certain approach just isn’t working. This journey has the tangible outcome of experiencing cause and effect of action and how manipulating approach is sometimes necessary.
