If you want to become a Digital/Social media marketer, you first need to determine if this career path is a good fit for you. If the following skill traits sounds like you, then you’re probably well suited for a career as a social media marketer

Passion: Enthusiasm trumps everything in social media


Commitment: Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back


People skills: a set of skills enabling a person to get along with others, to communicate ideas effectively, to resolve conflicts and to achieve personal or business goals.


Common sense: Common sense requires the ability to think on your feet, good judgment, levelheadedness, discernment, astuteness, wisdom, perception and insight.


Time management: He/she must be prepared for a constant stream of online activity and handle each social platform with aplomb to increase posting efficiency


Empathy: A common trait of good social media managers is their capacity to walk in someone else’s shoes. They understand the wants, needs, thoughts and emotions of their audience. They know how to draw the best out of their fans, whether it’s joining a contest or sharing stories and photos. To be a truly effective social media practitioner requires a service-oriented mindset.


Patience: The great irony of social is that it happens so fast, but results accrue slowly. Your wins come when you acknowledge comments, respond quickly, offer help and support consistently over time. True social media professionals recognize the need to build and nurture relationships and allow connections to unfold slowly. A slow, deliberate and patient approach to social media is key if you are going to become proficient.
