What did that mean for specific roles? Well…

📈 Paid social media marketers’ slice of the hiring pie grew after shrinking in August

📈 Email marketers saw rising demand … 

📈 … and so did content marketers, for the second month in a row. 

Paid social media marketing grew 50% MoM

Since iOS 14.5, we’ve seen brands upping their content and email marketing hires — and hitting pause on paid social. 

But in September, paid social media marketing hires spiked. Here’s why, according to our sales team: 

  • iOS workarounds: The savviest paid social media marketers have figured out how to work around iOS 14, like dropping personalized ad creative for a general-interest approach
  • Lead gen: Brands hired paid social media marketers to generate leads for email subscriptions and drive traffic to new landing pages — all in preparation for higher November/December CPMs. 

Our takeaway? 

To prepare for Q4, brands invested in a tripod strategy that includes content, email marketing, and paid social — despite its iOS-related challenges.
