Questions & Answers
#1 Can you explain to us what your typical day looks like at iPrice?
I would say 60% of my time will be focusing on doing content marketing stuff from content ideation, creation, distribution, and evaluation.
25% more will be for meetings and since I am interested to learn about managerial, I usually also hands-on some team development plans such as peer coaching, leading team meetings, and initiate some activities to increase our team bonding.
15% more to help other team members, additional meetings, or just self-development reading time.
In iPrice it’s encouraged that we only fill 80-85% capacity every week so that we still have the capacity on doing hotfix or additional task in the middle of the week.
#2 Biggest myths and misconceptions about Content Marketing?
- The more difficult the content = the cooler it would be
- Unclear target audience
- Wanting a short-term result
#3 Your proudest professional achievement at iPrice?
I am so fortunate that I started my career journey as a digital marketer in iPrice. This company not just allows me to grow my knowledge but also my personal branding.
Nurtured by very supportive team not just makes me a better employee but also a person as a whole. I am more open to feedback and also learning a lot about giving better feedback.
From iPrice I truly believe hiring a perfect fit candidate is the most important to make your team productive and fill each other's needs.
#4 What drives you to work in your current industry?
I grew up in a civil servant family or we call it PNS in Bahasa. You know they are a great job but when I was younger I was being thought of for being one. That would be the ultimate goal in life, I didn't get much exposure to another type of industry.
So, I would say being in this industry helps me to grow much more. If you are a person who loves to squeeze your creativity, working in a fast-paced environment, always striving to learn something new. This is one of the industries that will fit your hunger.
#5 Things you wish you could have learned earlier in your career?
Switching careers is normal and working in different industries from your major is also okay. I thought in the past if we had a major as an engineer we need to work in the engineering field or any oil and gas company.
I have a master degree in public health but here I am doing my job as a content marketer!
#6 Books / Online resources you follow to remain on top of the most important industry trends and keep improving in your field (blogs, podcasts, newsletters)?
Some of my favorite inspiring book for your personal development
What I Know For Sure-Oprah
Atomic Habit- James Clear
Grit- Angela Duckworth
#7 Your tips for someone who is interested in starting his career in Content Marketing (aside from applying to RevoU :)?
You should be ready for lots of rejection, take care of your LinkedIn, create a trusted profile, start networking with people who work in a similar industry, and just do it! Jump into content creation and creating your own.
For beginners, you can always follow the content you adore and do ATM methods (Amati, Tiru, Modifikasi).
#8 The fundamental skills a Content Marketing Specialist is expected to have?
Hmm interesting… I think for me you need to have a good intuition on spotting the trends and seeing the opportunities.
Because being a content marketer you will not only create content but you need to distribute it.
Most of the metrics in content marketing require people to read/publish or engage in our content. If you don't meet those metrics means that you still need to learn to make more content marketing pieces.
#9 What distinguishes a good Content Marketer from a great one?
I think a great content marketer will always remember that this is a long-term process and it’s not just about you creating good content but also how are you gonna build a good relationship with the stakeholders for your content.
There is no denying that content marketing requires PR process.
#10 Best examples of Content Marketing campaigns (outside iPrice) in Indonesia?
Lifepal, Sociolla, RevoU, Sirclo. Read their research and blogs you will understand why I said they are great :).
