Marketing is one of the most underrated services at a business’ disposal and the professionals who specialise in it can be a huge asset for a company.

It’s important to find a quality marketing recruitment firm that can put you in touch with the right people.
The evolution of technology and digital marketing has completely flipped the marketing industry. With social media and an online presence being a borderline necessity for most people, the traditional means of marketing and advertising are no longer feasible. A whole new set of skills is now required in the marketing industry, whereas tv, print, radio and cinema used to be the standard, it is expected that marketing professionals are proficient online and in multiple digital tools and programs. One of the biggest differences in modern marketing is that trends can be completely online meaning marketing firms need to keep their finger on the pulse at all times.
The marketing industry in Australia is in a good place recently, there are approximately 74, 000 people working in the industry and growth is projected in terms of career opportunities. The industry actually has a lower unemployment rate compared to others. A role such as a marketing coordinator earns a salary of $53, 000 at $25/hour on average. A more senior role in the industry like a marketing manager can expect just under $78, 000 at $31/hour. The average salary for a marketing coordinator in New Zealand is just under $49, 000 at $21/hour. The average salary for a marketing manager in New Zealand is just under $76, 000 at $29.
When a marketing recruitment firm is looking to fill a role, the skills they’ll typically look for in prospects are:
- Producing creative content
In a world practically run by the internet, content produced by companies is almost as important as the product or service they produce. Since online is the easiest way to get noticed, there’s now an onus on companies to have well attended social media presences, blogs and emails just to name a few. If the content you create can stand out on a search results page, you’ve brought eyes to the company and made a difference.
- Digital Skills
Speaking of content, that’s half the battle. There’s so much content out there it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle, being able to reach your audience takes knowledge and experience in the tools relevant to the industry. Tools such as SEO, SEM, keyword research and user behaviour. Optimisation is arguably now just as important as the content, it’s important to keep up with what’s relevant.
- Being receptive to your audience
Being able to measure the effectiveness of your content and then perform changes and maintenance accordingly is how you stay on top of the game. This takes experience more than anything but being able to utilise the information at your disposal and make changes accordingly is how you get said experience. Staying on top of aging content is important too, update statistics and recognise when other details need to be attended to.
