Most of the digital media professionals are really cool about the technical skillset. They are very cool about the algorithm-driven skill set. But when it is about objective-driven work some way or the other they lag behind. So what are the exact things that an agency expects from a digital marketing professional? What else is needed other than technical skill sets? All these questions need an answer. Well, here I am going to tell you several things that can prove really beneficial for all the digital marketing professionals.
Companies expect professionals who can impact the top line
Companies want professionals who can help in delivering social media campaigns for a product or even for that matter for a person. Being a technology driven person is not enough to sustain your place in an organization.
More of marketing driven less of sales driven
Professionals should have an attitude of creating a brand for themselves and organization as a whole. If they are concerned more about sales in totality then yes they might generate revenue but they would eventually not impact the brand of an organization as a whole. For that to happen marketing-driven approach is a must. In other words, total brand management.
As a professional, it is necessary to understand which model does your organization lie in. Is it Business to Business or it comes in the category of Business to Consumer. Depending on these factor’s the whole C-Suite framework works. The first C that stands for concept tells us about the overall architecture of the organization, in other words, do you understand the line of business your organization is into. The second C stands for context which means how well you are able to translate that concept in the context of your organizational business model. After that comes the third C that is content which is one of the most important factors of an organization. Without an effective content strategy, no organization can move ahead hence having a proper content strategy and its management is a must in all organizations. The fourth C stands for communication after understanding the concept and converting it into context and creating proper content it is time to communicate. And finally after communicating it comes the fifth C which is coverage. Which can work globally or even for that matter locally?

When we talk about becoming a market leader there are several aspects that come into play. The first and most important thing is VISION. Do you have a vision for your product? Do you really think you can achieve it? But the real truth is people are not confident enough whether their product can deliver the necessary results and hence they fail to occupy the top spots in terms of market share. It’s all about believing in your product and having faith that “Yes” I have created something which could actually be the difference maker.
Some key points need to be taken care of when we talk about becoming a market leader.

Opinions are often diverse because some areas of our education system are exceptionally well, however some are equally lagging behind. The intent is not to knit a web of words but to know what exactly lacks in our Education System. Let us look into the possible reasons.
Theory vs. Practical

Most of our schools still lack in imparting practical knowledge to the students and avoid using pictures and art as a mode of knowledge and understanding. Innovation is not encouraged.
