  • Translating client objectives into digital advertising strategy, choosing the appropriate media and message for each goal
  • Keyword & bid research and management
  • Ensuring ads are targeted to the most relevant search queries, topics, and people
  • Thinking of tests that have the potential to move the needle, and implementing, tracking, and reporting on those tests

  • Ability to build ad campaigns in various user interfaces and editing tools
  • Ability to find the story within the data. Not just the “what,” but the “why”
