Digital Marketing Consultant FAQ
A digital marketing consultant advises on driving demand and generating revenue opportunities online.
Digital marketing consultants often specialize in either organic or paid media. Eric Schwartzman has digital marketing skills in paid and unpaid channels.
In digital marketing, organic media refers to natural search optimization, sharing content on social networks that drives user engagement, and getting others to write, talk and link back to a client's website.
Paid media refers to Google Pay Per Click Ads, Facebook Ads, YouTube Ads, Native Ads, and any other digital environment where clients pay to have their content featured.
Eric Schwartzman is a digital marketing consultant.
Clients hire me to help them increase revenue online through organic growth marketing programs that leverage owned, shared, and earned media marketing to grow market share.
As a former manager of a large B2B marketing team, I am a generalist with first-hand experience overseeing the implementation and development of enterprise IT solutions.
I'm also an expert in all of these areas:
- Digital Analytics - Because you can’t improve if you can’t measure.
- Marketing Automation - Finding warm leads based on digital interactions
- Website Performance - Maximizing site load speed to elevate rankings
- Search Engine Optimization - Boosting search rankings to get found
- Copywriting - Persuasive use of language to drive conversions
- Email Marketing - Personalized communications to nurture leads
- Content Marketing - Problem-solution storytelling to get shortlisted
- Blogging - Content authorship to build thought leadership
- Podcasting - Long-form content for community development
- Online Video Production - Shorter form content for community development
- Social Media Marketing - Social proof to add credibility and visibility
- Digital PR - Implied, neutral, third-party editorial endorsements
These are the disciplines required to execute
If you're new to digital marketing, owned media marketing refers to media you create and own, like websites, blogs, podcasts, videos, email newsletters, white papers, webinars, and events, and the tools you use to measure and optimize those assets.
Shared refers to social media and influencer marketing. I wrote a best-seller B2B social marketing.
And earned refers to guest blogging, media relations, industry awards, and public speaking.
I've overseen media relations at some of the most significant events, including The Academy Awards, the Olympics, and Star Wars Celebration.
In various capacities, I've been in digital marketing for over 20 years now.
I developed a proprietary methodology for sequencing initiatives to accelerate growth that I use to help clients implement digital marketing and digital transformation initiatives.
According to 2019 research from Credo, the average worldwide rate for digital marketing consultants is $140 per hour.
For US digital marketing consultants, the average rate is $161 per hour.
But hourly rates can be tough on clients because the consultant has no incentive to work efficiently.
Rather than bill hours, I created the Outside Insourcing model to offer clients a distinct scope of work with specific deliverables on a flat-fee basis.
As a professional development seminar leader, I've led 2 and 3-day digital marketing communication programs in the classroom and the cloud for Boeing, Johnson & Johnson, UCLA and Toyota, and dozens of small and midsize businesses.
As a facilitator, I've led cross-functional teams at Fortune 500s, federal government agencies, military commands and B2Bs on enterprise software migrations and full life-cycle software-as-a-service product development.
As a coach, I've helped hundreds of startups, thought leaders and self-published authors take charge of their own digital transformation initiatives.
I've helped hundreds of individuals and SMBs increase their revenue without relying on advertising.
