6 Things People Who Work at a Digital Marketing Agency Won’t Tell You

Online Marketing Secrets

#1: We know many people consider digital marketing “not a real job.”

Digital marketing is a very real job that requires hours staring at a screen, typing until your fingers nearly fall off, and consuming lots (and lots) of coffee.

#2: The number of emails we get is only exceeded by the number of Facebook and Twitter notifications. 

You have 9 Twitter notifications and 2 Facebook friend requests? I manage social media pages for more than 10 clients. My phone won’t stop buzzing. In fact when I get home, the last thing I want to do is check my own notifications.

#3: That being said, it is way too easy to get distracted at work.

I log into Facebook to check on a client’s ROI from their latest content, but there on my newsfeed is the most adorable dog video. I mean, I can spare two minutes. I deserve this, right? This happens approximately every hour on the hour.

We also play basketball, shoot nerf guns, and play pranks. You gotta get up and stretch your legs some time and we work our butts off; therefore, we have to play hard, too.

#4: We don’t have a real dress code, and that can be a real problem. 

Do you know how hard it is to pick out what to wear in the morning? You have to consider the weather, whether or not you’re going to meet a client that day, what to do when your “nice” jeans aren’t clean, if a blazer is too much, and what you’re going to be most comfortable in.

But before you know it, you have perfected business casual.

#5: We appreciate effective digital marketing more than anyone you know.

If we see a well optimized site, we share it with the entire team. We then find ourselves searching through their site to read their meta descriptions. Suddenly, we’re checking their domain authority. Before you know it, we could tell you word-for-word their page copy.

Ad retargeting done right? We see it. We acknowledge it. We work harder. We spend hours conducting keyword research and analyzing pay-per-click accounts. We are passionate about what we do and we are committed to showing our clients real results.

#6: We totally love each other.

We are obsessed with what we do. We may not admit it, but we are all a bunch of digital marketing nerds. Put us in one office, and it is inevitable that we become best friends.

Together, we work hard (really hard) and play hard. We communicate with each other constantly in order to execute each client’s digital marketing strategy to the best of our ability. We spend eight hours five days a week with each other, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
