Look for potential when hiring The person with the most experience isn’t always the best for your team. Keep an eye out for employees who show potential to grow quickly, learn a lot, and display an eagerness to do extraordinary things. 2. Keep up to date with digital marketing trends Digital marketing is where it’s at right now. Each day brings new developments in this rapidly changing field, so make sure to subscribe to blogs, vlogs, and podcasts that deal with digital marketing topics. Even though you will have a lot of administrative duties, you are still leading a team that needs to come up with original, and exciting, ideas.

So make sure your employees work in an environment that is stimulating, fun, and inspiring. 4. Create a fun work environment As a manager, your responsibilities are to plan, oversee, and delegate. So stop occupying your time with small tasks and trying to do everything yourself. Let your team take care of those things! 5. Learn to delegate There will always be someone better than you. So make sure you learn from them, find out what they are doing better than you, and find a way to overtake them! 6. Learn from your competitors It’s easy to be over-ambitious when it comes to marketing strategies. Remember that it is better to execute a simple idea successfully than to toil at an idea that is too complicated. 7. Focus on simple ideas 8. Work with the sales department, not against them The more you learn to work with a sales department, the more success both departments will have in the end. So focus on co-operation and compromise, not competition and conflict. This is the golden rule of marketing. Get into the mind of your target market by doing research, conducting interviews, and sending out surveys. It is easy to forget that you aren’t your own target market. 9. Know your market As Steve Jobs said: “If you want to hire great people and have them stay working for you, you have to let them make a lot of decisions and you have to, you have to, be run by ideas, not hierarchy. The best ideas have to win, otherwise good people don’t stay.” 10. Get input from everyone study a marketing course via distance learning
