Types of marketing roles

The marketing sector is vast and varied. Upon the completion of a marketing qualification from Monarch Institute, you will have the knowledge required for various types of roles and the skill set to succeed in whichever role you decide is for you. But what types of marketing jobs should you look for after you receive your marketing degree? Below we will go through the many different roles within the marketing sector, the courses best tailored for the marketing career you want, and the traits a successful marketing specialist should have.

What Type of Work is Involved in Marketing?

Marketing management involves the practical application of marketing techniques and methodologies inside companies and organisations, managing these firms and their resources to be put to events and activities. As a marketing manager, it will be your job to market or promote the business, service, or product. You will be tasked with overseeing things like launches, events, advertising, email campaigns, social media, and more.

There are also more nuanced roles in marketing that focus on singular tasks instead of being responsible for overseeing the marketing of the entire business, service, or product. Other roles in marketing include but are not limited to social media, paid ads, email, and search engine optimisation (SEO).

Different Jobs in Digital Marketing

Social Media Marketing
Social Media marketing involves using channels like Facebook and Instagram for public relations and marketing. A social media marketer’s job is to give a company a positive social media image, amass a large following, use engaging content to reach their audience, and create effective paid marketing ads. Social media marketers must stay up-to-date with marketing strategies and social media trends in the fast-growing and constantly evolving industry.

Google Ads Marketing
Google Ads marketing involves the implementation of paid ads on the Google search engine results pages (SERPs) to increase brand awareness and get more traffic to the website to generate sales. With all of the data being tracked, you will be able to demonstrate how your marketing of paid ads directly contributed to sales for the company.

Search Engine Optimisation
Search Engine Optimisation, or SEO, involves understanding the algorithm of search engines such as Google, and how they produce results. SEO specialists will know how to optimise websites through the organic and innovative usage of keywords, linking, and more.

Direct / Email Marketing
Email marketing is the art of using creatively-crafted emails and digital promotions to reach customers. The email marketer’s goal is to create emails that potential customers open and engage with, as this leads to increased revenue and sales. The email marketer will also be adept at analysing data to optimise promotions and increase engagement.

Digital Marketing Manager
A digital marketing manager is in charge of the online marketing efforts of a company. This can include social media, website design, online advertising, SEO, and online customer relationship management. It is the most hands-on of marketing roles and involves expertise in several of the aforementioned marketing roles.
