Build a digital marketer mindset
A guest author says digital marketers need to think like the mainline and do it online.
Over the last six years, I’ve seen a major shift in the mindset of digital marketers, a gradual shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
The idea that digital marketers just build websites and analyze keywords and data has changed. Digital marketing today is much more marketing than digital.
The first step to having a digital marketer mindset is to have a marketer mindset. Platform changed. Form factor and interface changed. The evaluation model and his ROI metrics have changed, but the people and their cultural nuances remain the same. My city jokes about your city still remain. Lifestyle differences between users in big cities and those in rural India remain. The need to stress connect and touch thinner cords still remains.
Mainline agencies have been working with brands for 10-20 years because they understand the market, the product, the target audience and the competition. In fact, the brand sometimes asked her manager to spend time with the agency because there was so much to learn. So even if you’re interested in digital marketing, you should think about all the factors that make your campaigns effective. You have to think tactically. You will be asked to run a new campaign within 2 weeks, so please do so. But think like mainline and do it online. These factors blur the line between the two.
A digital marketer’s mindset must also include balancing data and creativity.
There is a popular saying among digital marketers. “I swear to God. Everyone else must bring their data.”
This thought process will help you evaluate specific data points to derive insights. Or if you want to create user personas, analyze digital behavior and create a content strategy. But then data can only take you so far. What about evolving user behavior or creating a new her UI/UX interface that makes ads less obtrusive?
People usually look to Google Analytics to predict future models. But keep in mind that Google Analytics is only part of the possibilities. It’s just showing you the journey,
Interactions on Your Site. What about all the other users who might have visited your website because of different interaction elements, different content, or different engagement?
Even Google says that 15% of the searches we see every day are new.
Similarly, art is always considered subjective. A design, layout, or interface can be interpreted differently by different people, but can still incorporate data and science. You can always run AB tests to test specific designs and features that will perform better. You can publish specific parts of your website to specific geographies, or create specific sections in local languages to see how well users stick with them.
Therefore, a healthy mix of data and creativity becomes very important. Use existing data to build a base, but use your creativity to broaden your horizons, discover new test grounds, innovate, and outpace your competition.
Digital marketers have to try everything.
The beauty of digital marketing is transparency, immediate ROI, and the option to scale up or down in real time based on performance. So try all possible mediums to reach out and connect. Certainly we would allocate budgets based on what has traditionally worked. However, allocate a percentage to try out new platforms and channels.

Once you’ve identified clear gaps and made your search clearer, there’s always a chance you’ll find someone working on it. Any regular or recurring task should be automated. Everything from running macros in Excel to marketing automation can be done online. Try to maintain a constant desire to automate, along with a desire to expand operations, serve a larger customer base, and improve customer care.
Another important aspect for digital marketers to understand is that customer perceptions of digital platforms have also changed significantly and evolved over time.
From a marketer’s perspective, it’s important to understand that even consumers are thinking about ROI in their day-to-day lives, the return on the time and money spent buying something online. This shift in consumer behavior has created a sort of her ROI obsession.

Digital marketers must be both lateral and logical thinkers. And because the market is so competitive, they must have patience, persistence, and an ever-learning mindset.
Successful digital marketing is teamwork, so a successful digital marketer must have a balanced mix of both digital marketing know-how and soft skills. The problem at the moment is that India does not yet have a sufficient number of resources in digital marketing.
