When small businesses initially start , their aim is often on how to attract their first group of audience towards their door. Traditional or earlier forms of advertising may be used, such as print advertisements, coupon mailers, or even signage on the side of the road. They may rely on the fact that since they deliver a good service, it’s only a matter of that moment until customers find their way to them.

Although this strategy might bring in a tickle in the business, there is a better, easier and convenient way. Small businesses should take into the account the huge marketplace out there full of prospects that are present online. Small businesses shouldn't ignore this large market, no matter how old or new they may be.

Salient features of online marketing include:

  • The ease to interact with your prospects and learn exactly what they are looking for and what are their needs
  • The ability to reach out to a global marketplace
  • You can reach more number of customers in lesser amount of money than traditional or earlier used marketing methods
  • Try to know your audience and allow them to know you as an individual which can help to form a brand loyalty
  • You can trace responses to your marketing efforts immediately in no time

After talking so much about how significant digital marketing is today, the question now arises is how do you prepare yourself for a DM marketing interview.

1. Reading appropriate material and practising questions based on it

It is very vital to have a thorough revision of concepts based on which you can assess yourself with available online quizzes and short answer type questions. It is always better to make use of books available or go online and hunt for type of questions that play a role in interviews.  Make use of the latest versions of the materials which would help you to understand the market needs in a better way and prepare you accordingly for the interviews.

2. Attending mock interviews

Try and attend as many sessions as possible in order to practice for your real time interviews. Mock interviews not only give an exposure to the real time interview setting but also helps to gain confidence within oneself and develop self esteem to overcome any type of anxiety and fear in the real interview settings.

3. Watching videos of how DM interviews look

It is always not possible to have mock interviews with a professional, however you need not worry there is an alternative to this where one can watch the available videos online. Make sure apart from the technical knowledge you also make a note of the body language of the interviewer and the interviewee. The body language of the interviewer can sometimes help you know if the interview is going in the positive direction or not. On the contrary a relaxed confident body language of the interviewee can also drive the interview in the positive direction and help you outshine with the zeal and enthusiasm.

4. Revisit and prepare for your campaigns

Just mentioning the certifications isn't enough. Do acknowledge the fact that the recruiter is looking for practical exposure rather than just theoretical knowledge about the subject.if you attain certifications in a particular domain, make sure you know how to ace those softwares and use it to the fullest.  Do present creative ideas, plans, campaign ideas that the interviewer also gets a new perspective of seeing those areas with your eyes.

5. Do an audit

Show interest in their company so that the recruiter shows interest in you. It is utmost important to learn about the core skills of the company before going for the interview. Make sure you study the data of the company well to be able to present your contribution in the betterment of the company once selected.

6. Analyse the competitors using softwares like semrush

As I stated, studying the company well is very important to be able to make a difference with your participation in the organisation. Analyse the role of competitors, their strategies and try to come up with even better strategies and ideas to deal with hurdles. Before looking into the solutions, jot down the list of problems and precedents, analyse them and work on appropriate practical way outs.

7. Prepare a goal plan

For example- blog posts and youtube videos for the betterment of the organisation. Just to ensure how well you have done your homework about the company you are interviewing for, come up with several ideas like blogs, vlogs, videos that can be used for the promotion of that company and in a way result in profits and positive outcomes. Do not give unrealistic ideas, rather keep it concise, simple, make use of your strengths and deliver the possible realistic ways.

These are several steps which can be helpful for an individual to overcome their obstacles when going for an interview. A lot of courses pertaining to digital marketing might give the best of the technical knowledge BUT remember a holistic approach with personality development plays a vital role in deciding the best fit for you. Rejections are a part of life and hence try to take the lesson from an interview to reach heights in the next one. Acknowledge the recruiter on social media handles and try to seek feedback after the interview. Once the interview is complete make sure to attain feedback of what can be improved on your part for future upcomings. Follow the recruiter on social media handles and try to seek support for your betterment or any other future opening.
