🎙 Welcome to the next edition of the #EmployeeSpotlight blog series 🎙
In today’s instalment we’re interviewing our Account & Product Marketing Manager, Becca Barrett.
1. How long have you worked at Exact Editions?
I’ve just celebrated my two year anniversary with Exact Editions! I initially came on board as a Marketing Assistant before taking on an account management role with our magazine publishing partners. Two years later, I now also manage the development of the Reading Rooms for Books platform as the Account & Product Marketing Manager.
2. Could you describe a day in the life of an Account & Product Marketing Manager?
My main responsibilities include in-house marketing and PR, managing magazine and book publisher accounts, and developing a marketing strategy roadmap for the book marketing platform Exact Editions launched last year, Reading Rooms for Books.
I’m involved in writing copy across all our marketing channels including website, social media, blog posts, email marketing, and company documents. As well as writing and organising press campaigns.
As the main point of contact for publishing partner and lead accounts, my week is filled with meetings. For magazine publishers, I present sales statistics and how they can use the marketing tools we offer to boost digital subscriptions. For book publishers, I demo the Reading Rooms for Books tech and showcase how it can be used to benefit the promotion and publicity of their print books.
3. What is your favourite part of your job?
I enjoy how versatile my job is, there’s lots of competing deadlines across a variety of projects which keeps the role fast-paced and interesting.
I also love working with all of the Exact Editions team. Across all departments we’re encouraged to bounce ideas off each other.
4. What is a fun fact about you that most people don’t know?
Not sure this is a fun fact but I’m left handed — alongside only 10–15% of the world’s population.
5. What is one thing you can’t live without?
6. What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy seeing my friends, especially when trying out new restaurants, and cooking. I also enjoy adding lots of clothes to my shopping basket on websites and never buying them!
Baja fish tacos with nachos (with all the toppings!).
- Holiday destination?
Mexico — for the reason above.
Thanks so much for taking part, Becca. It’s great to hear about the favourite bits of your role!
