1. Copywriting

Anyone can take a blank page to write down anything, but not everyone has the skill to write persuasive and compelling copy that will spur people to take action.

Copywriting is a professional skill that involves developing and creating advertisements across various brands; those who have this skill are called Copywriters. They possess a range of skills in addition to their writing skills that include different content types—like marketing materials, digital and print content— and communication skills, creative thinking, technical skills, research skills and more.

Copywriters may have content writing skills, but not all content writers have copywriting skills. Both skills are different from each other.

2. Digital Marketing

Digital marketing is vast, which is why there is a plethora of knowledge about electronic marketing.

Marketing skills are now an essential part of most businesses. However, to remain relevant in the field and competitive, a Digital Marketer needs to have the most important digital skills. Skills like SEO, SEM, Content Marketing, Data Analytics, Copywriting, Social Media Advertising, PPC, and Email Marketing are invaluable in marketing.

Digital marketing can be complicated if you do not have the skills and talent.


3. Web Development

Web developers are at the digital age’s front end (pun not intended). The websites we browse, the E-Commerce platform we order stuff from, and the news updates we get online are all made possible with the expertise of web developers who design and build the websites. 

Their blend of skills involves Creative Thinking, Project Management, Responsive design, HTML/CSS, Analytical skills, Responsive design skills, JavaScript skills, Interpersonal skills, Testing and debugging skills, and Back-end basics.

4. Photography

They say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, and we couldn’t agree more. Imagine some of the favourite things you’ve purchased after seeing a visual representation of them. Would you have bought them without images of the product? A book cover or a snapshot on a food delivery app. ?. Photographers tell multitudes of stories that captivate a viewer and have them begging for more.  

5. Influencer Marketing

Influencers are thought leaders in a particular field with a knack for persuading and shaping the opinions of their target audience. Influencers are essentially the face of the internet because they help drive consumers to your business or campaign. As a result, many companies count on them for success. So, what if you could swap a skill with an influencer? Well, now you can.

Content writers have become one of the most sought talents on the internet. They cut across even the unsuspecting sectors such as pharma. They help you convey your message by crafting it in a way that appeals to your audience and keeps them engaged. 


7. Graphic Designing

To start with, Graphic Designing combines art and technology to create visuals that solve problems by employing the use and composition of colours, typography, imagery, and form to communicate ideas. The best logos and flyers are often love at first sight for a significant portion of your consumers, a delicate invitation to engage with you to see where it leads you. 


8. Video Editing

Video editing can be time-consuming and requires a great deal of expertise. Yet, it’s an integral part of modern-day marketing because it links images and sounds to create an emotional feel. The outcome of your video can either make or mar the message you want to communicate. That is, using a professional for your video editing is appropriate.

So, define the moment you’re dressing for and let Swaptime do the magic of actualising your dream fit by pairing you with the right person.
