Traditionally an Integrated Producer is one who manages production across all platforms for a client or clients. Is that not correct? Why do some job postings refer to integrated as if it is a PM? Why do some refer to it as a producer who manages site development and analytics? Can someone explain what exactly agencies are talking about these days when they say “Integrated Producer”?

Anybody have side hustles that are completely different from what they do on their job?

The only thing I can think of would be freelancing on the side and doing sql/excel analysis for clients on like Upwork or something.
