    This is an extremely subjective question that may best be answered by your employer or yourself. Not only would different warriors have different biases on what skills are better or worse, from their experience, the term "digital marketer" is extremely vague and doesn't really reveal what you actually do.

    What types of projects do you work on daily?

    Where do you get stuck, where do you need to get assistance?

    Do you have someone above you that you could ask their opinion?

  • For me, learn something that is trending first and slowly move to techniques that are not so popular. In this instance, FB is definitely the first one that you need to master and known well.

  • Copy writing. It goes with Everything.

    Or a sweet Budget to Outsource Everything.


    Learning and observing from people that been there done that where you are headed specifically. Not so much all the time what they are recommending YOU to do but what THEY are actually doing.

    There is no answer to describe what should be done in digital marketing and what should be left. Its a vast subject. But since you have asked everyone mostly people lands up in learning SEO first because if you even develop a website and don't know how to rank it on google then there is no use. Your question needs a answer from an expert because he would be much aware of the marketing needs. I gave you the basic. Besides SEO you need to have knowledge of making amazing content. People will be glad if you are able to provide the information what they want. Hope these help you in basics. You can refer neil patel blogs and videos on you tube.

    well this is my bull crap answer .. so no real need to try implementing my answer .. to you overly vague question ..

    first two are general marketing skills.. figure out who the buyers/users of your product are.. then figure where that groups attention is ..

    now learn which digital platforms have your audience .and how to get adds in front of them that will get their attention .

    each platform requires tweaking of basic marketing skills .. so the other skill is willingess to learn what work on what digital platforms .

    but of course it no need to try and understand what i just said .. it's just words on a forum

    THE preferred skill, in digital marketing, is...

    the same as in other marketing...

    COMMUNICATION.

    Being able to present your ideas, thoughts, opinions, through many platforms requires good communication skills. You need, definitely, to work on these before you can even see yourself in a good position (whatever the hell that means).

    DIGITAL includes youtube, so personal presentation skills, as will benefit you on conference calls, Skype calls, or any multi-media platform...or in email, blog posts, Facebook, LinkedIn, other Social Media, etc.

    So, COMMUNICATION SKILLS, and preferably some persuasion, influence, and general good first impressions are important.
