Work history

Digital Marketing Executive

Liberty

Dec 2015
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I joined the Liberty e-commerce team in a new role that had many challenges to be faced. When the Digital Marketing Manager went on Maternity Leave in early June, I took ownership of all these channels and report directly into the Director. Strategy - I am in charge of the overall 360 digital marketing strategy choosing each channel in line with what I believe will be the most lucrative and either drive the most revenue, or create brand awareness. Reporting and Analysis – I report on each digital channel looking at traffic, revenue, conversion rate, and working towards improving ROI. I use Google Analytics to create these reports and also curate post-event and post-launch reports that give a full overview of all Marketing Activity. PPC – I have a thorough understanding of PPC and Shopping and manage our PPC agency constantly working towards optimising search and brand visibility. Paid Social – I manually create and run engaging paid social campaigns on Facebook and Instagram using targeted audiences by integrating our CRM data. I push content, events and sales through this channel. Affiliates – I manage our Affiliate program, working with an agency to increase sales through content sites, retargeting partners and third party sales sites. Display – Since starting at Liberty I have added Display marketing to our channels and run brand awareness and revenue driving campaigns at a strong ROI. SEO – I create SEO reports weekly that report on quick wins and work to increase our organic visibility. This includes a close relationship with our content team creating content that boosts our search engine presence. New Site Transition – In Mid-September 2016, Liberty launched a brand new e-commerce site with a new platform, design and host. I managed all integration with all our existing third parties and new ones. I also managed the SEO transitioning, from redirects to identifying issues and solving these problems with the technical team. Media and Advertising – I have also picked up on media and advertising for Liberty giving me a 360 view of campaigns. I regularly work to place press advertisements plus use these relationships to explore other opportunities, such as sponsorship, to support other areas of the team. Partnerships - I have been the point of call on various partnerships for the business from both branding and commercial points of view. I have managed these relationships and built success from them for the business. Budgets - I have been solely managing the budgets and finances for Digital Marketing and have pitched and forecasted for the FY17.
