Field Marketing Manager Job Description (+ Template and 3 Examples)

September 21, 2018

Have you (or an executive at your company) ever received a fancy package in the mail with some personalized swag, a fancy pair of headphones, or perhaps some customized cupcakes? Was the company who sent it currently trying to sell you?

That creative marketing tactic was more than likely the work of a field marketing manager.

Field marketing, sometimes referred to as “field selling,” is the process of personally connecting with target prospects in order to best market and sell your offering. They may also work to get their product or service in front of potential customers “in the field” – think trade shows, public locations, retail locations, etc. These initiatives may include promotions, sales demonstrations, direct sales, and more.

This individual will likely work closely with your sales and sales enablement teams. They know their prospects best, so the field marketing professional will often collaborate with them to determine what strategies have the highest success rates. Often, their goal is to source leads for the sales team that are considered “marketing-qualified” – AKA, leads deemed more likely to become a customer. 

The field marketing manager will typically work as apart of your “demand generation team”. This team’s primary objective is to encourage prospects and customers to engage on a deeper level with your organization.This may include other professionals like growth marketing managers, marketing operations managers, event marketing managers, and more.
