I believe that the major outlines and strategies used for traditional marketing are still valid for digital marketing. However, digital requires marketeers to think even more “outside the box”. At IUM, creativity is highly valued. And as a marketing specialist, in my opinion, this is how you can differentiate. You can learn all the frameworks in the world, do your SWOT analysis and know Kotler and Armstrong by heart, but this doesn’t make you a good marketeer. It is thinking creatively and differently, doing something new, inspiring, sizzling and awesome. Because, in the end, that’s what it’s all about: adding unique selling points to products and services through creative marketing. IUM taught me this!
