Our world of technology changes rapidly, and if you’re in any kind of advertising, you know you need to stay ahead of the trends. When it comes to digital advertising, it is so important to stay up to date and learn how to market your business or yourself effectively. At Pilot Mountain Marketing, we know that this can be a frustrating task to accomplish, especially if you’re new to the digital advertising industry. We want to help however we can! We specialize in creating and maintaining beautiful WordPress websites for your business located in Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem, NC or surrounding areas, Pilot Mountain Marketing wants to help with all your digital marketing needs. Along with building your website, we also work hard to digitally advertise for your business and increase your SEO.

Here are a few tips on how to stay up to date with the rapidly changing digital advertising industry:

  1. Stay curious. We learn more effectively when we’re interested in the subject matter, but we’re also more receptive to new information when our curiosity is inspired. Work to find parts of projects that pique your interest and encourage you to dig deeper. We can also cultivate curiosity as a habit; ask follow-up questions, and try to think of problems from several perspectives.
  2. Emulate work that inspires you. Whether you see a beautiful ad or an innovative workflow, take something that works and turn it into your own. Every project is unique, of course, so don’t rely on others’ processes as your own. But ask how others who are successful have overcome their hardships, and emulate their work ethic.
  3. Learn from the mistakes of others. We are wired to learn from others and the decisions they make, especially when they’ve made some wrong choices. Learn from others’ mistakes and be open-minded to fix them.
  4. Stay informed. Keep up with developments every day, if possible. Don’t ever think that you’ve learned enough!
  5. Be attentive. If you take time to look at your competitors and their impacts on products, you can learn more about your own industry. If you notice interesting ads or banners online, pay close attention to them and why they are working or not working.
  6. Be innovative. Learn to experiment and push boundaries. Adding your own spin on your workflow may help improve your creativity or your ideas.
  7. Plan time to keep learning. This is important, especially because many people in the industry do not set aside time to keep learning. Spend just a few minutes every day reading on developments or meeting up with coworkers to brainstorm.
  8. Be proactive. If you have a question at work, make sure you ask. Do not think that your question is dumb – there are likely other people with the same question as well. Asking questions can not only benefit you, but your entire team.
  9. Find a mentor in the field. This can help you develop a broader view of the industry which can help you find your place within it. Lean on the wisdom of others who have found success in this field.
  10. Know yourself and your work. Think critically about projects that have been successful or not so much, and figure out how to take that experience and build upon it.
