Digital Marketing has been around for a while and it only gets better each year. Many people I help with their campaigns ask me these questions:

  • What are the best skills you need to ace your digital marketing in 2017?
  • What skills are more important than other?
  • What skills should we focus on learning?
  • What skills do you really need to be a successful digital marketer?

Well before I answer these questions, here is the thing: If you want to make money online you need to have the right skills and the right strategy! It’s not enough to have the skills but not the right strategy on how those skills will help you make the money. You need both, because……You WANT the MONEY!!!

So, to answer these questions I put together this list of:
