Must-Have Skills for All Aspiring Marketing Consultants

by chandra joshi i m blogger

The marketing field can be incredibly complicated, with different people using different ways and methods to accomplish goals. In most cases, the marketing professionals need to be the jack of all trades. They must know how to manage a brand’s image online, how to do social targeting, blog management and promotion. They must also have the knowledge of how search engine optimization actually works. While you can take lessons from the journey and work done by the top marketing gurus like Suhel Seth, here we list down the top three skills that all aspiring marketing consultants must have:

1- Excellent communication skills: If you look at some of the top marketing consultants, you will notice that most of them come from journalism and communication backgrounds and don’t have a marketing degree as many of us would have thought. This is because marketing degrees mainly focus on the market trends and research while a journalism degree helps them learn how to communicate the message clearly and concisely to a target audience. As most of the communication of marketing consultants is written in the form of press releases, blog posts and social media accounts, one must have excellent written communication skills to send across the message that can resonate with the audience. It goes without saying that verbal communication skills are also equally important.

2- Out-of-the box, innovative thinking: To excel in the field of marketing, one needs to have a creative bent of mind and plan out new ways and strategies to help the business grow. For example, if there is a campaign idea that needs to be worked upon, the marketing consultant should be able to make it as unique as possible to make the campaign a success and improve search engine rankings. Be it the slogans, business development tools, logos, social media engagement ideas or print advertising, everything must be done in a way that it generates outstanding results.

3- Patience and persistence: If you are looking for a career as a marketing consultant, do note that the results would not come overnight. For example, if you have created a Facebook page or a blog for brand awareness, it would take at least 3 to 4 months to get the desired traffic and get in touch with the prospective customers. You must put in your best efforts and then wait for the desired results to come in. Moreover, you might have to make modifications and adjustments every month if the expected results are not achieved. This means, persistence and adaptability are also the skills that all aspiring marketing consultants must have. 

Besides the above three skills, all those who wish to enter this field must also have the willingness to learn and grow so that they are up-to date with the new technology, updates and changes in the field.
