Here at Glacier Media, our internal agency ecosystem is made up of 150+ folks.

Another week, another Team GMD Q&A. It’s kind of like Vogue’s 73 Questions. Instead, it’s in blog form and there are less than 10 questions – because you’re busy and we respect your time.


This week on Team GMD, we are featuring Matt Rosen, our Digital Coordinator for the Victoria market. Matt works to help the sales team in Victoria connect the dots on their various digital campaigns through Glacier. He helps to optimize and strategize on a continuous basis with all the digital accounts. In addition, Matt also works with various enterprise level accounts as an Account Manager. Read on to learn more about him.

How do you manage an Integrated Campaign that has multiple services, point of contacts, and different deliverables? Give us 5 key points/ process.

  1. Stay organized. Keep a separate ledger with checkpoints to ensure nothing is missed.
  2. Ensure you understand the goals and objectives that the client has per service. Understanding why the client is running a service with us will help align our optimization and recommendations with their business goals.
  3. Devote time to checking in on each services status, especially when projects become quiet.
  4. Understand how the client communicates. Whether it’s weekly calls or monthly check-ins, understanding and respecting the client’s workflow will allow you to gather information more efficiently, especially on tight deadlines.
  5. Stay organized! Things can easily slip by the wayside in a large project. Make sure you stay on top of all moving parts.
