Amanda Meade joined Marketing RELEVANCE in October 2016 as an Account Coordinator working on Senior Account Manager Courtney Rogers’ team.

Amanda also spends time researching communities and neighborhoods so she can craft stories that make her clients’ communities stand out to potential buyers. Read on to follow Amanda for a Day in the Life of an Account Coordinator.
Q: What do you do first thing in the morning?
A: On a given day, during the early hour of 5 a.m. you’ll find me preparing for the day ahead. Whether it’s showering for work, rushing out the door to make it to the gym on time or vacuuming the floors because I actually have time to spare, the early mornings are when I can accomplish more than most people do all day.
Q: What do you do when you first arrive at work?
A: When I get to work at 8 a.m., the first thing I do is open my email and organize my notes from the previous work day in order to start my ‘to-do list’ for the day. My role as an account coordinator involves extensive social media and content management responsibilities for several clients; therefore staying organized is an essential requirement.
Q: How do you manage your time?
A: The next order of business changes from day to day, which I love. Some days are spent writing numerous blogs for various clients, other days consist of creating and scheduling social media calendars, tracking monthly social media and content for reports and listening to conference calls with clients to take notes on current and future content. I spend a good portion of my day researching areas in which clients build and preparing creative content that will capture interested buyers’ attention.
Q: What is the most rewarding part of your job?
A: The most rewarding part of my job is that every day is unique and I can let my innovative ideas shine. As an account coordinator, I’m here to assist the account managers and facilitate projects in any way necessary. The most challenging aspect of my job is writing about areas about which I am unfamiliar. Google can only assist with so many details; it’s up to me to find an original spin on content.
As it nears 5 p.m., I’m confident there are no lose ends left to tie up for the day. I leave work knowing that tomorrow will be just as interesting. Depending on the day, I pack up and go to the gym or I head home to cook dinner and spend much needed quality time with my girls.
