Develop an influencer strategy and own day-to-day management of all aspects of public relations
Optimize Later’s existing social media strategy, manage social engagement, and grow social channels (bonus points if you’re an expert at using Pinterest for business!)
Lead the generation of corporate, educational, product, and trends news coverage that displays the thought leadership of the brand
Report on KPIs for daily/weekly/monthly program monitoring and tracking
Build and maintain relationships with key influencers and media contacts
