The majority of marketing communications coordinators will find that their pay is directly tied to how well they do their job. It’s not a one-way street. Marketing communications coordinators are expected to be knowledgeable about the marketing communications programs that they oversee, and they are expected to be an integral part of the marketing team.
To be a marketing communications coordinator, you must have skills and education at the same time. You must be knowledgeable about the company and industry you are responsible for, and you must also be extremely organized and meticulous. Those two things go hand-in-hand. Being organized is a good thing, because it requires a great deal of time and effort, and those things don’t come free.
I know, its a bit hard to believe, but there are quite a few companies out there that are really good at marketing. And for a lot of them, their marketing department is actually the very very last department that they have. If you are in this category, you need to be ready to put in a lot of hours and be superorganized, which translates into a lot of money. And you also need to be able to work with people who are not your own manager.
Sure, you might be paid like an assistant or a junior marketing coordinator, but that’s not a job I would want. It’s not like anyone I know would hire me as a full-time marketing coordinator. However, if you’re willing to do the work and keep your sanity, you might be able to work as a part-time marketing coordinator.
I don’t know how many people actually make their living as a marketing communications coordinator, but here is a suggestion. If you like your job, why not apply for a part-time marketing coordinator position? And if you don’t like your job, why not find another one? This is a great idea, and a good one at that.
Marketing communications coordinators are mostly employed by agencies and publishers. They supervise the day-to-day activities of their clients. They make sure they are following company policies, are doing a good job, and doing it in a timely manner. In other words, they are usually employed to make their clients look good. While most of them arent going to get rich off of their day job, they love their job and are willing to work at it.
If you are a marketing communications coordinator, you can expect to earn $40,000 to $60,000 a year. The average salary for an agency, publisher, or a client is closer to $12,000 a year.
That’s a lot of money to pay a full-time marketing communications coordinator, but the pay is what you make it. I know that you will be doing a lot of work with the clients, but I have to wonder how well your clients will be able to pay you for the work you are doing.
Marketing communication can include anything from writing press releases, to writing blog posts, to writing email newsletters. Marketing can mean different things to different people. For example, while I am not an expert on the topic, I have made it my practice to keep in touch with my friends and colleagues by email, Facebook, and Twitter. If you are a marketing communication coordinator, I can see how you could find yourself spending more time with your clients than you are working for them.
A marketing communications coordinator is usually someone in a marketing position who has a degree in communications. You most certainly aren’t the only one in this mold. When I was in grad school I worked as a marketing communications intern. I know exactly how you feel.
