A Day in the Life

No two days are ever the same in the life of a Field Marketing Manager. One day you could be focusing on organizing industry events or trade shows and all the vital logistics, and the next you are looking to optimize our digital campaigns for specific segments or leading the communication of key announcements. In the morning, you spend the first hour or so checking emails and actioning anything that's necessary for the day and week. Working with different internal and external partners means you have contact with a number of different people at all levels, therefore your day will for sure include various meetings, to get updates about the various projects and make sure everyone is running to schedule.

Usually one or two of those meetings are with your key partners and distributors to discuss their ongoing activities and schedule new one’s. You spend time in the day to supervise and report on the success of the campaigns you are working on.
