What I Learned?

In the first course I took through Digital Marketer (Content Marketing Mastery Certification) it began by explaining the history of content marketing and how it started. It is essential to understand the foundations of content marketing and how it ties into the overall digital marketing strategy before you begin to learn about new methods to try. It then dove into the different types of content, benefits of each, and metrics you should use to track your success.

Yes, there was definitely information that I already knew taught in the course, but everyone needs a refresher. There is nothing more essential than continual learning, especially in marketing. With new updates, changes, and trends every single day, if you do not keep learning, you will fall behind.

And specifically in the marketing agency world, if you are not constantly learning and testing new strategies than that could mean lost clients. The Content Marketing Mastery Certification was extremely beneficial for me as a content marketer, but would also be helpful for other marketing professionals.

Importance Of Cross-Channel Knowledge

Just as it is important to continue learning to expand your knowledge in your area of expertise, it is also crucial to develop knowledge of other marketing channels. At Power Digital, we consider  cross-channel integration one of our strengths. So, even though I am on the content team, it doesn’t mean I should limit myself to only advancing my content marketing knowledge

In order to successfully run a cross-channel client account, you need to have a solid understanding of each channel and how they work together. The most successful campaigns are ones where the channels work seamlessly and strategize together. All channels should be aligned not only with brand voice, but also with the overall goals of the marketing campaign.

The importance of efficient and effective cross-channel integration is why it is imperative to understand each aspect of digital marketing. If you don’t understand something about a certain channel, ask questions, take a course, learn more.

Understanding how each channel works together and interacts is the first step in an effective campaign strategy.
