So, you want to be a digital marketer, huh?

That’s great!

You’re going to be an ace in no time. What’s more, 2020 is the perfect year to start.

Digital marketing, as an industry, has seen significant periods of growth over the last few years and it has been projected that there will be an estimated industry-wide spend of close to $121 billion by 2021.

As someone who didn’t start out as a digital marketer, I can tell you that while you may have a lot to learn, there are a lot of resources out there to accelerate your growth and development.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of content out there.

If you take one thing at a time and keep current with the latest trends, you’ll be on your way to being a digital marketing expert in no time.

To get you started, we put together a list of 20 infographics anyone who is starting inbound marketing in 2020 needs to see.

Inbound marketing infographics

1. Inbound Marketing Basics

Maybe you’re coming from a traditional marketing background, or maybe you’re just completely new to marketing altogether.

Either way, if you’re entering the digital marketing world, you’re going to need to have a strong understanding of the inbound marketing methodology.

While digital marketing tends to be an umbrella term to refer to any kind of marketing tactic on a digital platform, inbound marketing is what is taking center stage.

Here’s a simple infographic on the basics of the inbound marketing methodology from the InfoGraphic Design Team:

2. The idiot’s guide to inbound marketing

Now that you’re familiar with the basics of inbound marketing as a methodology, it’s time to get into some of the nitty gritty of what the practical implementation of inbound looks like.

In the idiot’s guide to inbound marketing infographic, SevonAtoms takes us through common inbound marketing tactics that produce great results.

From pay-per-click to calls-to-action, these tactics will give you a great idea of the day-to-day life of a digital marketer.

3. How effective is inbound marketing?

Still not convinced that the inbound marketing methodology really works? (Our free guide, "Proving the ROI of Inbound Marketing" may change your mind!)

Did you know that inbound leads cost 61% less on average than outbound leads?

Did you know that 79% of companies that have a blog report a positive return on investment for inbound marketing?

This infographic from Invesp is chock full of statistics and trends that make it impossible to deny that inbound is a worthy investment.

4. Inbound marketing process: How to get started in 3 months

Now that you know all about the inbound marketing methodology and are convinced you need to start using it, you’re probably looking for some practical steps to actually start DOING inbound marketing, right?

We know the feeling. That’s why we put together this infographic to explain the basic process of implementing inbound into an organization.

There are 10 simple steps, plus tips on tools that will help get you going:

Content marketing infographics

5. A well-balanced blog

Creating remarkable and compelling content is at the core of the inbound marketing methodology, but it’s not always easy to figure out how to do that. Consistent and strategic blogging is a great way to start.

Column Five and LinkedIn partnered together to put together this creative infographic that uses the food pyramid as an analogy for creating a well-balanced blog.

digital-marketing-infographics-5-balanced-blog.png

 

6. The 3 types of content people love to share

Once you’ve started creating great content, the next step is to figure out how to get your content into the hands (or onto the screens) of the people you made it for.

That’s where this infographic from Uberflip and BuzzSumo comes in.

There are three major types of content that data has proven get shared the most. Reference this when you feel like your content is top-notch, but not enough people are seeing it.

Video marketing infographics

7. Video marketing statistics for 2020

If you follow digital marketing, or even just have a social media profile, you know that video is a content force to be reckoned with.

Videos are a great way for companies to tell their story and communicate their value clearly and effectively. In fact, statistics show that videos increase engagement and conversion rates, and brands are taking notice.

With social media platforms moving more and more towards video content with features like Instagram and Facebook Stories, Facebook Live, and TikTok, 2019 was certainly the year for video marketing, and 2020 looks to continue the trend.

Social Media Today put together an awesome infographic of video marketing statistics that might just blow your mind:

8. 20 video marketing stats to know for 2020

Now that you know how effective video marketing is in the digital space, you need to make sure you are keeping current with the latest trends.

Get familiar with how people are consuming videos and how businesses can use video, and you’ll be able to utilize the platform to its fullest potential.

Influencer marketing infographics

9. Influencer marketing's evolution in 2020

Influencer marketing has been a growing trend over the last few years, and 2020 could be a year of "explosive growth."

According to Tapinfluence, “influencer marketing is a type of marketing that focuses on using key leaders to drive your brand’s message to the larger market.”

This concept can be implemented in many ways, but it is most often done through social media channels.

A simple share of your content by an influencer on their social media accounts could pay off exponentially with shares, visits to your website and ultimately leads for your business.

In this influencer infographic, Influencer Marketing Hub gives some compelling facts that show that influencer marketing is here to stay.

The answer is, according to this infographic from Single Grain, absolutely! Once you see these statistics, it will be hard to say no to using influencer marketing as part of your overall digital marketing strategy.

13. Why a website redesign doesn’t always work

When conversions and sales on your site aren’t where they’re supposed to be, a website redesign is often at the top of the list of ways to fix it.  

A complete website overhaul is tempting because it has the illusion of being a fix-all for all of your digital problems.  

Well that’s not always the case. VWO’s infographic on why a website redesign doesn’t always solve your digital marketing problems explains it all. Great marketing is about much more than great design.

17. How to become a creative genius in 5 days

Creativity isn’t something that’s reserved just for the designers and artists of the world. In order to be a successful digital marketer, you need to keep your creative juices flowing as often as possible. 

Becoming a creative genius will help you do things like create compelling content that connects with your audience, or think of new ways to reach out to those influencers you started campaigning to earlier.  

Not sure how to become a creative genius? No worries - Zippi put together a step-by-step guide for becoming one in just 5 days. See the full infographic in our article here 

18. What you need to know to be productive at work

Productivity is a huge buzzword these days. Everyone wants to figure out how they can be as productive as possible while they’re working. Like the old saying goes, “Work smarter, not harder.”

But how often do you think about your actual work space when you consider your own productivity? What if you could increase productivity by making a few small adjustments not to how you’re working but the environment you are working in? 

This infographic by Davitt Corporate Psychology gives super practical tips for making your workspace more productive.

digital-marketing-infographics-17-be-more-productive.jpg 

19. Why, how, and where time gets lost at work

Once you’ve gotten your physical workspace optimized for productivity, it’s time to look at what else is slowing you down.

There’s only so much time in the day, and you want to make the most of it. Scoro’s infographic on why, how and where time gets lost at work shows top time-wasting activities, as well as do's and don'ts of a productive work day. 

Reference this if you are feeling like your weeks are flying by without getting much done. 

digital-marketing-infographics-18-where-time.png

20. Vacations are a must

I saved my favorite for last. I mean, who doesn’t love vacation? But the interesting thing is that large percentages of Americans say that they take zero vacation days in a year. Zero.

It may seem as though these people are more dedicated to work than the rest of us, but the data shows that taking time off improves health and productivity.

This infographic from quill demonstrates just how little vacation most people take, and how we can all benefit from taking a break.  

 

In conclusion

In case you're feeling overwhelmed by all there is to learn, don't be! Take one thing at a time - one strategy, one methodology, one tactic at a time and you'll be on your way to digital marketing mastery in no time.
