Our Approach to Closing the Digital Marketing Talent Gap3 min read
Marketing of the past is a dying art. It’s been a long time since a full page ad in the newspaper or a commercial on one of four T.V. channels was all you needed to fuel your business. Digital marketing is a complex and multifaceted process that needs expertise across fields to maximize its potential. From SEO, to social media, to content marketing and more, the most successful digital marketing comes from well integrated teams across various aspects of marketing.
There’s only one problem: The talent gap in our industry is larger than we thought.
A recent study by the Online Marketing Institute (OMI) found a huge talent gap across digital marketing professionals. OMI surveyed over 700 organizations who use digital marketing either in-house or through an agency. Here’s what they found:
- There is a 25 percent talent gap among large businesses and 30-43 percent talent gap among agencies.
- 71 percent of large brands and enterprise organizations say their digital marketing team is strong in some areas, but mediocre or weak in others.
- The industry is driving a higher need for specialists. While 34 percent look for both generalists and specialists,
- 22 percent said the need for specialists is growing.
- In terms of specialists, the biggest need for specialized talent falls under analytics, email, content marketing, mobile marketing and social media.
