A look into the role of Digital Consultant
The responsibilities of a digital consultant can be summarized as follows:
- Audit of the existing system to obtain an image of the site at the moment
- Development of the digital strategy
- Implementation of the strategy approved by the client
(Keep in mind this is only a very brief overview of the profession and the skills required.)
Solid Technical Skills
Contrary to popular belief, digital consultants don’t just advise their clients and step back.
In reality, they must monitor the results of their recommendations on a daily basis, measure KPIs or coordinate actions between everyone involved in their action plan such as community managers, developers, brand content managers and designers – to name a few.
Additionally, competitive intelligence is a crucial part of any digital consultant’s responsibilities. Part of their job is to keep up to date with new practices in order to better address client needs and help maintain their position on the market. To do this successfully, they must have solid technical skills and real knowledge in the field to make the most informed decisions on their clients’ behalf.
Doubled with a Dose of Interpersonal Savvy
In addition to technical skills, a digital consultant must also possess soft skills such as the ability to communicate effectively, respond to client needs and adapt to change.
Here are just a few examples of how soft skills are exercised in the day-to-day activities of a Digital Consultant:
#Transparent communication with the client and any specialists included in the strategy
#Knowledge to clearly articulate expectations, results or changes in direction
#Responsiveness by adjusting the different marketing levers according to observed results or changes (change of algorithm, for example)
#Organization of the various marketing actions for a smooth and streamlined process
#Social media, KPI analysis tools, website, mobile version, redesign and migration, artificial intelligence, IU/UX design.
A digital consultant must demonstrate technical knowledge, but also hindsight to adapt the strategy according to the results or the evolution of the tools; this will be ensured by the SkillValue CTO when recruiting.
