The number of available remote jobs has been on the rise for some time, well before COVID-19. The pandemic has only forced many companies to expedite the transition of many traditional jobs to a remote setting.
Marketing jobs have always been ideal candidates for remote positions. Many of these jobs require very few resources outside of a laptop and the right software to do the job.
Even though we have moved into phase one of the Ontario government’s plan to reopen the economy, remote jobs are likely to stay. The coronavirus has only highlighted the need for and value of a remote workforce.
Whether you are a candidate seeking out a remote role or even a company trying to navigate how you should set up your company and operate in the future, here’s a list of the best work from home marketing jobs:
Office online support to customers has become a vital part of the sales and marketing process. When people have a question or an issue, they want to get an answer as soon as possible. Customer service reps, whether they are communicating online or over the phone, can easily operate out of a home office with the right equipment.
Digital content can be produced without the need to step inside your company office. It’s a reason why so many organizations outsource content development or hire freelance copywriters. Cloud software and remote access enables writers to create copy regardless of location.
Social Media Manager
All companies need a social media presence today. Social media managers can effectively help your company maintain a strong online brand presence from virtually anywhere. All social media managers need is access to your social accounts and social tools to post content and interact with your customer base. While collaboration with other marketing team members will be required, this can be done digitally.
A strong search presence is vital today. But the presence of your SEO team is less of an issue. Google Analytics, Search Console and virtually all third party SEO tools are accessible online. SEO professionals can access all the resources they need online to ensure your company website is on page one.
From vendors, to clients, software providers, writers, and the social media and SEO team, marketing coordinators work with a variety of people in multiple locations. This fact itself makes a coordinator’s actual location less important. As long as they are excellent communicators and can get the job done, it can be done from anywhere.
Web and graphic designers do the vast majority of their work online. It’s natural for a job like this to be an ideal remote position. Even though there is a lot of collaboration required, there are many great tools that can be used to share files, have virtual meetings, and collaborate on projects.
