Meet the Steve Jobs of the Digital Marketing Industry
Digital marketing has evolved a lot in recent years. With the advent of new technologies and an increasingly crowded marketplace, marketers need to stay on top of their game. Fortunately, there are plenty of companies and individuals who have been able to master the art of digital marketing. In this article, we’ll take an inside look at one such individual: Steve Jobs. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to handle your own digital marketing challenges—whether as part of a startup or established company—this blog post will give you insight into how one of the world’s greatest entrepreneurs handled similar situations
The Birth of Digital Marketing.
Digital marketing is the use of digital advertising, particularly on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
The first step in any good digital marketing campaign is making sure you are talking to your target audience. After that, you need to make sure that your message resonates with them. Once you have done these two things, it’s time for actionable work: the creation of content and campaigns designed to reach out directly to customers without being intrusive or pushy about it.
From the Beginning.
Steve Jobs was born in San Francisco, California on February 24th 1955 to Paul and Clara Jobs. His biological parents were Abdulfattah Jandali and Joanne Simpson. He is an American entrepreneur, inventor and industrial designer who co-founded Apple Inc with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne.
Jobs dropped out of Reed College after one semester to travel through India looking for spiritual enlightenment. In 1974 he returned to Silicon Valley where he worked as a technician at Atari Incorporated before founding Apple Computer corporation along with Steve Wozniak. During this time he became increasingly interested in eastern religions such as Zen Buddhism along with their emphasis on intuition rather than reason which influenced Apple’s product design efforts into what they call “emotional aesthetics”.
How He Found His Path.
Steve Jobs was born in San Francisco, California. At the age of 17 months old he was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs. They later moved to Los Altos, California where they raised him as a Methodist Christian.
He attended Homestead High School in Cupertino, California where he took classes such as wood shop and industrial arts. He also became interested in music at this point because his father taught him how to play the drums and piano. In 1972 when Steve was 15 years old he dropped out of high school to pursue his career as an entrepreneur and musician with his band “The Blue Men”
Lessons in Entrepreneurship.
If you’re looking for a crash course in entrepreneurship, I’ve got a few tips for you. The first thing to do is to read this post from my friend and colleague David Erickson:
- Be a visionary.
- Be a good leader (to your team).
- Be a good listener (to your customers).
- Be a communicator (with your team and customers).
- Negotiate effectively with vendors and partners on behalf of your business.
- Strategize about how to grow the business by using data as an input into product development/marketing initiatives rather than just focusing on gut instincts or anecdotal evidence.
Digital Marketing Strategies for Startups.
For startups and small businesses, the first step is to define the digital marketing strategy. The first thing that you should do is create a plan for your business and how it will be implemented. Your plan will include where you want to focus, how much time you want to spend on digital marketing activities, which channels are most important for your business and what kind of ROI (Return On Investment) you expect from them.
Once this strategy has been created, start implementing it immediately while making sure not to lose sight of key performance indicators (KPIs). KPIs are like mile markers on the highway – they allow you to measure if your efforts are working or not by tracking key metrics such as website traffic or conversions from an email campaign. You can also use technology tools like Google Analytics with heatmaps so that when someone lands on one page within your website they see an ad banner directing them back into another part of your site without having any knowledge that there was ever an advertisement at all! This creates a better user experience by giving users what they want instead of overwhelming them with irrelevant information.”
The main takeaway from this article is that digital marketing is a very broad field, and there are many talented professionals who have made it their life’s work. As the industry grows, the need for such individuals will only increase.

Next time you’re trying to find a solution to a technical digital marketing problem, think about how Steve Jobs would have done it.
If you’re looking for a way to improve your digital marketing strategy, consider adopting the philosophy of Steve Jobs.
Jobs was a known perfectionist who wanted to create products that were incredibly user-friendly and beautiful. He saw himself as an artist, rather than an engineer or designer. This meant that he could think about his work from different perspectives than most people working in technology today: what would users want from this product? How can I make this easier for them? How can I make it better than anything else out there? By thinking about his products in this way, Jobs was able to create things like the iPhone and Macintosh computers, which created entirely new categories in their respective markets.
The same approach can be applied to digital marketing problems too! If you’re having trouble with something technical like SEO or A/B testing software, ask yourself how Steve Jobs might approach solving it—and try thinking outside of the box (or even better…the black box).
Our digital marketing industry has come a long way since its inception, and Steve Jobs is considered one of the most innovative minds in the world. It might be tempting to think that we’ve reached the pinnacle of what’s possible with digital marketing, but I think there’s still plenty of room for innovation ahead. If you look at how Steve Jobs approached this industry from a technical perspective, I think you’ll find plenty of inspiration on how to get your next marketing campaign off the ground.
