Have you looked at the business and technology section of the news lately? More leading news, business, and technology publications are reporting that there is an increasing digital skills shortage, particularly in the area of digital marketing skills, and politicians around the world are issuing warnings that businesses are headed for a ‘digital skills crisis’ …
(The business sector is experiencing a global digital skills shortage!)
Technology-dependent countries like the US, UK, Australia, and many European countries face a significant competitive disadvantage as a result of this digital skills shortage. According to various studies like the Australian Digital Skills and Salary Survey, commissioned by the Slade Group Digital Practice and NET:101 and undertaken by Sweeney Research, many businesses are finding it difficult to source digital employees and are finding that the digital skills gap is taking a moderate or heavy toll on their business, yet they lack the strategy to address this problem.
According to Elizabeth Ebeli, Slade group’s digital practice manager …
“Organisations leave themselves wide-open to being left behind in the digital century.”
What About My Business?
According to the Digital Marketing Institute, content marketing is one of the most in-demand digital marketing skills companies and businesses are looking for.
With every new Google update announced and every new social media algorithm implemented the importance of content marketing becomes increasingly clearer. The demand for qualified content marketers has surged in the past year as digital marketing managers realize the value of providing valuable content to their customers. Quality content creation feeds into many essential elements of the digital marketing mix, including email marketing, social media, and SEO strategy.

Content is the currency of the Information Age. In today’s ultra-competitive Digital Economy, every employee should be able to create digital content to help sell or promote the business that employs them, no matter how small the business is.
One of the easiest ways to do this is through blogging.
When it comes to blogging, no other platform is as powerful or as effective at helping you get content published and promoted online as WordPress.

Build A WordPress Site For Your Business … Or Many!
Let’s say that you want to expand your business presence online and add an e-commerce store, or a membership site, or a staff directory, or a customer helpdesk, or any other kind of digital asset your business needs.
Normally, this would involve hiring expert coders and spending thousands of dollars on web development costs.
With WordPress, you can easily build almost any kind of website you can imagine, with no coding skills required and at minimal cost.
We provide a complete digital skills training curriculum for WordPress comprised of detailed tutorials that take you step-by-step through the entire process of planning, installing, configuring, using, expanding, customizing, managing, securing, and growing your website with WordPress.

Turn Everyone In Your Business Into An Expert Content Marketer …
For many small businesses, their digital presence consists of a brochure-like website where no regular content is added to it.
Imagine how much growth your business would experience and how further ahead of your competition you would be if your sales and marketing people contributed content to your website regularly that educated visitors about the benefits of using your products and services and helped turn these into new leads, prospects, and sales, and if your operations and support staff provided regular training content, tips, and information aimed at turning new customers into repeat customers for life.
Think of all of the knowledge, skills, and expertise your people bring to your business. In some cases, there can be years of specialized knowledge about your industry and an in-depth understanding of the processes that go into producing your goods and services. This is all potential content locked inside people’s heads waiting to be harnessed. How can you harness this valuable resource and turn it into great content to help grow your digital presence?
