What skills do you need to become a marketing manager?
Strong communication training and skills are vital, as well as a knowledge of how to best use each marketing channel—whether it’s online or offline advertising, email or social media.
As a marketing manager, you won’t just look after the marketing team, but manage communications strategy too. You’ll need to coordinate with a variety of stakeholders, from PRs to account managers.
Marketing managers will be required to plan marketing campaigns, from budget to delivery, analysing the results and reporting them back to the rest of the company.
A strong imagination is key when it comes to persuasive marketing content. A marketing professional works closely with creatives including designers, content makers and events coordinators.
