Digital Marketing for Arts Marketers by Arts Marketers

Capacity Interactive (CI), a digital marketing consulting firm serving arts and culture organizations, is seeking interns to support and learn from our Search Team for Summer 2018.

We believe that the arts are an essential part of society and are vital to the strength of our communities. As the premier digital marketing consulting firm for culture and the arts, CI helps the arts flourish by partnering with the country’s leading cultural institutions to help them build audiences, engage community and market smarter. Our client portfolio includes such organizations as New York City Ballet, Goodman Theatre, The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall and MFA, Houston. Annually, we host Digital Marketing Boot Camp for the Arts, the country’s leading digital marketing conference for the arts.

CI has a robust internship program that introduces students and early career professionals to the foundations of digital marketing for the arts. Search interns will support our search team in both search engine marketing and search engine optimization. Interns will receive substantial training in the Google AdWords platform and will gain experience in paid search, Google grant accounts, and SEO. Search Engine Marketing and Search Engine Optimization are in-demand skills that can lead to a wide variety of job opportunities in the future.
