What are the most important skills that a marketer needs?

The following infographic by Formstack highlights seven skills that companies expect from their marketers.

The ability to understand data ranks high on the list. "Research predicts a shortfall of up to 1.5 million data-savvy managers by 2018," Formstack states.

Technical skills, such as basic coding or video production, also make a job applicant more desirable. "Two of four new marketing hires will require technical skills," according to Formstack.

Knowing how to get along with others ("soft skills") also can help a job applicant get hired. Being able to communicate well and to be flexible is crucial to being an excellent colleague.
