Jira For Marketing Teams: How To Use Jira Work Management For Marketing

This article was written in partnership with Twybee - Atlassian Solution Partner
If you are a marketing manager, content manager, web marketer, or even community manager (all professions in the marketing sector to be honest) and you want to improve your project management by focusing on transparency, then you are in the right place. Jira is the software that aims to facilitate team collaboration. In this article, we'll see how Jira Work Management can help the marketing departments get organized: in budget planning, organizing content planning, and more.

So, how do marketing teams use Jira?

Actions and analytics are the keywords of any marketing team. It becomes an infinite loop: once the actions are in place, the analysis phase always should come next. Then, once the analysis phase has been completed, new actions are put in place. In order to master this whole process, we recommend using Jira Work Management. This tool allows you to plan, communicate transparently, monitor your projects, and carry out your reports in order to continuously improve your actions. Let's take a look at how Jira helps marketing teams on a daily basis.

Budget creation

It is designed to ensure that every team member meets deadlines and goals. Due to the different views offered, in particular the Calendar and Chronology view, you can see actions to be carried out over time.

Event planning

Plan your events on Jira: Timeline view
Organizing an event may seem simple even though there is a lot of work to do! Supplier management, visuals, communication, public relations, and so on ... These are often stressful times because we are afraid of not finishing on time. By planning the tasks allocated to this event, you will be able to organize yourself with your team over time: each task has a person in charge, a rendering date, a description to understand what is there at-a-glance, and custom fields (for example, to manage costs).
