So I can officially announce that as of October 1st, I will be P&G’s new Global Marketing Digital Brand Strategist.
So what exactly is a Digital Brand Strategist? Well frankly a lot of that is going to be figured out on the job since this is a completely new position for P&G Marketing. At the highest levels, the job will be helping drive P&G’s capability in digital marketing, branded content, social media, mobile and a host of other “digital areas”. My job will be helping guide and equip my fellow Procter & Gamble Brand Managers / Marketers across the company with the tools to develop their digital marketing strategy. Here is part of the job description:
Accelerating the company’s Digitial Marketing expertise and efforts across the globe is one of the current top priorities. Our commitment is to equip our brand building community with the knowledge and capabilities to create and execute a Digital Marketing Strategy. Specific responsibilities will include:
- building & running the global digital marketing network
- leading digital marketing training program (content & delivery)
- ‘collect & connect’ of best practices & inspirational case studies
- demonstrating use new digital capabilities for internal communications
This role will involve strong external networking and communication to bring the outside in and keep us in close touch with leading edge capabilities and expertise.
I am super excited about this new role because it allows me to dive headfirst into two areas that I love: Digital Marketing and Brand Building. It will also allow me to meet and work with many of the people in the online community who I have grown to respect and admire while writing Hard Knox Life. And with our changes at the top of our marketing leadership, the job will be even more interesting.
As part of the job I will be relocating back to Cincinnati so I’ll be getting ready for that move over the coming 2 months while finishing up some major projects on the Walmart Team. If anyone is looking/wanting to buy a house in Fayetteville, Arkansas, I can get you a great deal on mine!
