    • Magnify our efforts by coaching clients to be most effective with their internal marketing efforts.
  • Generate opportunities.
    • Understand the multiple channels working together for each client and the best ways to integrate them.
    • Collaborate and CRO everything – test, prove, and improve it all, from landing pages to third party profiles to site pages and so much more.
  • Grow at your pace.
    • Discover something that doesn’t make sense? Ask questions & dig in. Increase your understanding or resolve a problem.
    • Have an idea for a product that would fulfill a need? Pitch it and sell the product team on it so you can bring it to life.
    • Do you value title and role growth? Work with your leaders to develop your skills and request a promotion when you’re ready.

Ideally, a new Marketing Specialist will have a solid foundation of digital marketing knowledge and experience. They know what SEO is, why it’s important, and how to affect it. The most successful Etnans stay curious and like solving the many challenges and puzzles that come our way.

Marketing Specialists work both independently and collaboratively on the execution of the marketing. They provide recommendations and strategic input while primarily staying focused on project completion to achieve and exceed our clients’ marketing goals.

  • More than you ever imagined about the plastic surgery world.
  • Collaboration, resourcefulness, and expertise.
  • Cross-training on a range of tactics, including link building, local SEO, social media, paid search, and communication — with the goal of developing into a “T-shaped marketer” (Google it).

We embrace change as opportunity to learn and develop our skills, products, and services.

    • Have a healthy obsession with details and processes, with an understanding of and appreciation for the law of diminishing returns.
  • Be a marketer.
    • While a degree in marketing is great, relevant work experience is even better.
