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 digital ABM 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 your day will 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 brainstorm on co-marketing initiatives, discuss their ongoing activities or review joint initiative performance. You spend time in the day to supervise and report on the success of the campaigns you are working on.
