Existing accounts – The Associate Digital Strategist will be tasked with injecting digital insight, data and a holistic view into our current book of business. This may span things as simple as one-off tactics that the account folks may not be considering to entire digital ecosystem evaluations that take into account the competitive landscape, audience consumption habits/persona development and recommendations based on brand business needs.


New business – Patients & Purpose is frequently involved in new business pitches, most of which require digital strategy involvement. The Associate Digital Strategist will be asked to join these efforts by pulling relevant data (social listening) to back both tactical and overarching campaign recommendations and then present these ideas internally to our pitch team. This will help inform your colleagues in order to inspire ideas and persona creation that can be included in our client facing presentation.
