PR Daily, which delivers news, advice, and opinions on the public relations, marketing, social media, and media worlds, published today an article that The Fairmount Group’s Tim Marshall originally created for our What We Say blog last month. However, he got the idea for this content years ago.
In 2008 I was hired in a marketing communications leadership role. It was a great position, but there was a nine-month gap between my predecessor’s departure and my start date, which meant I had to piece together my role, the department and our budget like puzzles.
The advice Tim offers in “6 Key Tasks for a Marketing Manager’s First Month,” were the actual steps he took to lead that former employer to success — insights that he has shared with friends and contacts who were in between jobs.
Whenever a friend was about to start a new job, I noticed how daunted she or he seemed — there’s always just so much to do at first. So I emailed my thoughts to one contact, and then would update them and forward it to another. Like any good piece of content, it addressed someone’s ‘pain points,’ so it was natural to blog about it for The Fairmount Group.
