What does a Media Coordinator do?
Media coordinators are responsible for a broad range of duties related to the planning, execution, and deployment of media campaigns. They may be involved in the content development phase, and in areas such as writing and producing, but their primary functions tend to be in the actual logistics of arranging for the campaign to be deployed. They work with media buyers and sales representatives to coordinate the buying of airtime, create and process media buy orders and other documents, monitor live campaigns, and evaluate metrics to determine campaign performance.
Media coordinators typically have at least an associate degree, although some employers seek a bachelor’s degree or additional training. They must be extremely detail oriented, with excellent project management skills, and must be proficient using common office software programs such as Excel.
