The Conclusion to the Digital Marketing Resources Edition: DIY versus Professional Coaching (Part 7)
Concluding our 7-part series on digital marketing resources, this week’s focus is on improving your digital marketing skills and strategies on your own (via online resources) versus hiring a professional coach for help (in other words, do-it-yourself digital marketing versus doing-it-with-expert-guidance).
Over the past several weeks, I’ve shared a number of resources – ranging from webinars and online courses to eBooks and other materials – that can be enlightening and helpful for DIY-digital marketing, potentially helping you take your digital marketing skills and knowledge to the next level.
Just some of the great things about these resources are that they can:
● Help beginners dive into nearly any aspect of digital marketing for their brand, including (but not limited to) social media marketing, email marketing, and content marketing
● Provide deeper insights and guidance on how to go beyond the basics to start refining and enhancing digital marketing tactics and skills
● Position business owners and leaders to see better returns on their digital marketing campaigns, efforts and investments.
Given that the vast majority of the resources (that I’ve shared) are free, the only thing really necessary to take advantage of them is time.
So, what if you don’t have the time to do-it-yourself?
Or, perhaps more importantly, what if it’s time to dig even deeper and get some customized guidance that specifically applies to your situation, your brand and/or your current campaigns or strategies?
Then, it’s likely time to take the next step and consider professional coaching from a digital marketing consultant.
A digital marketing pro can audit your current processes, strategies and campaigns and:
● Point out opportunities to refine your efforts and make better use of your resources (like time, a marketing budget and staff)
● Reveal new tools and tactics that may advance your current strategies
● Monitor the performance and outcomes of various campaigns to evaluate what works best for your brand in terms of getting your digital marketing efforts to:
○ Drive more traffic to your site
○ Grow your online audience and see better engagement from them
○ Enhance your brand’s online authority
○ Enjoy more conversions and new leads.
Additionally, digital marketing experts can be invaluable when more hands-on assistance is needed – like when it may be time to develop more sophisticated campaigns or outsource your company’s digital marketing needs.
So, if you are ready for some one-on-one digital marketing coaching – or if you just have a question, want to discuss other online resources, or want some feedback on a specific digital marketing issue, don’t hesitate to get ahold of me on Facebook or LinkedIn.
