Marketing Assistant

Wallpapered Watts CO

Mar 2015
  • A diverse role taking on a range of marketing duties for a start up Wallpaper company, with a focus on digital and e-commerce. Blogger outreach, SEO, CMS, multi channel retailing (Amazon, Ebay) CRM, email design, artworking and customer service. Achievement : working for a small family business means that the role is exceptionally diverse covering everything from image sourcing to customer service. Initially my remit was to work for one business, Wallpapered, but my role has now extended to cover 3 of the other businesses owned by Watts & Co. Through this I have extended my skill set, particularly in sales and blogger outreach. Achievement : developing a strong working relationship with the employees at Zoey (our e-commerce platform) through weekly sessions flagging up any issues our team have encountered with the platform, before reporting back to my manager. This has really developed my understanding of how sites work in terms of format and SEO.
