Getting in the game as a Marketing Coordinator
The field of marketing and communications has grown and evolved with the rapid changes in technology and it looks set to experience modest growth over the next few years with an estimated 9% projected growth by 2024.
There’s a call for all kinds of roles in marketing, from SEO Specialists to Social Media Managers but the best way to ensure longevity in the field is to be a competent, jack of all trades, Marketing Coordinator.
While trends in the industry will continue to rise and fall (I mean, Snapchat right? What a flash in a pan) the skills of a qualified Marketing Coordinator will always be useful.
What do Marketing Coordinators do?
A Marketing Coordinator is responsible for organising the marketing efforts of an organisation. This can range from writing and putting together eDMs to social media management, blog posts, SEO management for the website, designing advertising campaigns, generating leads for the business and generally assisting with the look and voice of the company.
Marketing is a challenging and rewarding industry with endless opportunities for further growth and development. This area is best suited to individuals who possess the following traits.
Communication is key for marketing professionals; their whole job is about communicating.
Not only do they deal with clients and management but they have to be able to communicate the organisation’s message and target the desired audience.
Exceptional writing and verbal communication skills are necessary skill for all Marketing Coordinators.
Marketing is not a one man show, this is the kind of job where you work in tandem with multiple different departments to achieve larger goals for the company.
Being able to work effectively in a team and collaborate will result in stronger campaigns that yield better results.
