Dear Aspirant,

Excellently put forth by Dr. Pandya, I would like to add on that Digital Marketer is more of a imaginative, innovative and strategic position. Definitely you need to learn all the technicalities about the digital technology, you also need to make your self 'skilled' to be a good Digital Marketer.

Digital Marketer should be able to visualise ideas, techniques, imagine the concept, ideate and provide the best solution to the client.

Digital Marketing has tremendous scope and this also means that there is tremendous competition as well.

Best wishes
