The ongoing covid-19 pandemic has changed our daily lives – perhaps forever. Companies in all industries have been forced to respond and adapt, with many moving towards work-from-home, which requires them to hire remote workers to follow social distancing rules. One career path that offers the ability to work remotely is the digital marketing world. With tech companies advocating for virtual work environments, remote work is finding more applications here.
So, if you are thinking about taking your marketing career out of the office workspace, we have compiled a list of the most sought after remote jobs in this field:
Social Media Manager
Suppose your social network profiles are successful and you are active on social media. In that case, you would be engaging with your relatives, friends, and even strangers that are wandering the social media realm.
Most businesses and companies understand the important role of their brand’s social presence, and are willing to pay well for someone to help them manage their business online, work with their customers and increase their subscribers through social media platforms. If you like social media networking, then this could be your dream job.
A brand strategists job requires you to have some experience in the marketing world, formal education in this discipline, and a strategic mindset. If you pass all of these requirements, you can easily find a remote position for a marketing consultant company or freelance brand strategist.
Many companies are willing to handsomely reward experts and specialists in this field who will tell them the type of content they need based on their goals – then work with them to develop the strategy through projects, campaigns, and editorial calendars.
Digital Marketing Consultant
If you have digital marketing experience spanning several years and proven success in the field, this position would be ideal for you. Consultants are usually well-paid as businesses rely heavily on their expertise to take their company to the next level.
You can work for digital marketing firms that are looking to hire someone to analyze their current digital marketing processes and policies, provide leadership, and strategize with teams on improved performance.
Some virtual marketing firms will allow you to choose exactly what types of work and clients you want to work with. This arrangement can be a great fit if you are looking to carve out a niche for yourself in this industry – such as social media beauty and fashion clients, etc.
You must have heard the term ‘Copywriting’ a lot through the years, but you probably don’t know what it is, like most people. The first thing you need to know is that it has nothing to do with the legalities of ‘copyrighting’ documents or books. It creates a persuasive copy for promotional projects, for example, scripts for radio advertisements and television commercials, website pages, magazine articles, white papers, newsletters, and various other written promotional pieces.
For most copywriting positions, you get to work from a remote location, so all you need is amazing writing skills and a basic understanding of SEO.
Digital and Email Marketer
Digital and email marketing positions require you to use your marketing skills to create, design, and write emails and digital marketing content to reach your target audience and generate leads. Digital marketers tend to focus on stats: open and click-through rates, impressions, and sales.
A digital or email marketer knows how to create eye-catching content that gets clicked, read, and even shared. If you have marketing experience and a firm grasp of marketing terms and analytics, digital marketing may be ideal for you.
The marketing industry is continuously growing, and with growing evolutions in technology and online communication, the working dynamic is changing. With a marketing background, you can find plenty of jobs that will allow you to work from home.
