At the core of a top-performing Marketing Manager is the ability to utilize multiple platforms for their campaigns. This includes well-developed skills in CRM management, HTML, social media platforms, web design, email development, and SEO. Using a combination of these skills is required to produce marketing campaigns that are relevant, efficient, and successful for their brand.
