Vital is looking for an organized and energetic digital marketing specialist who is eager to jump in and learn all the ins and outs of working at a fun, fast-paced creative and digital marketing agency.

As a digital marketing specialist, you will be scoping out digital marketing projects, conducting keyword research, competitor research, and assisting with digital marketing strategy for our clients. Our specialists work directly with coordinators, account managers, account strategists, and project managers to scope and plan projects that will help our clients meet their goals. This could be anything from:

  • Scoping blog posts, articles, web pages, eBooks, and other content
  • Conducting keyword research
  • Conducting competitor research
  • Increasing the number of external links to a client’s website (link building)
  • Learn and conduct strategy for SEO, CRO, email, link building and paid ads
  • Learning and gaining experience to become a digital marketing strategist
  • Earning certifications and specializations in SEO, CRO, email, link building, and paid ads

While the account managers and strategists help lay out high-level strategies to help clients succeed, you’ll assist in creating these strategies as well as helping execute in some scenarios. You’ll be taking high level ideas, and turning them into actionable and well scoped projects. Your work will directly affect our client’s success.
