7083 Hollywood Blvd
DescriptionThe Digital Marketing Strategy intern is a member of our R&D team. Not only will you learn the ins/outs of Digital Marketing at the most cutting edge level - you will be part of the team that demystifies the Google Algorithm and helps to establish the true metrics that will influence Search Results over the next 18 months.
As you may know - the Google Algorithm changes several times a day (800x a year). When a company is faced with decisions on spending money on online brand campaigns, online advertisements, Social Media Marketing, Website development, Public Relations, and Brand Anchoring Google matters more than anything else in this country.
As an R&D intern, you will be trained to be a liaison with clients, public relations agencies and media outlets for the company to help determine the factors that will enforce brand and SEO guidelines in marketing publications, and will be creating reports that measure the success of various programs.
Forrester's Interactive Marketing Forecast for 2011-2016 predicts that 26 percent of all advertising spend will come from interactive marketing reaching a grand total of $77 billion by 2016, with $33 billion of that coming through search.
Although the report states that search will lose some share from 55 percent today to 44 percent of all interactive spend in 2016, it also states that “Marketers refocus their search marketing strategies on 'getting found' by users through any medium — not just search engines” making non-advertising strategy the goal.

We recently launched our Google Partnership initiative and as part of this internship you will become Google Adword Certified. This is about 100 hours of training (and it isn’t easy).
Once you are Google Adword Certified, you will have the opportunity to sell Google Adword Management. We pay approximately $150 per account to sales staff and part of your time could be focused on this.
