Our client needs a full-time digital native with the mind of Einstein, a silver tongue, and a personality that - well, a personality. The job description falls into that of an account manager variety, which is not sales, but it does have revenue numbers, because you're working with a client to capture more of the their marketing budget.
Also - being an inbound genius works. Or more specifically, having worked with an inbound genius before, and picking up enough to have real confidence on the job. This is a good learning position, but you have to want to learn. Yes, googling things are okay, but people don't want to even do that these days.
The job? Digital strategist. I feel like we went over this. Your client has purchased a Marketo or Hubspot or some other lead generation engine, and needs to what, when and how to write, send, and call leads. Some convert online - some convert through sales teams, but they need you to make sure that the engine works the way it's supposed to. This is a very important job, not just for the company, but for you, because this teaches you how people buy and sell, and that's a skill that will make you more employable, both inside and outside companies.
The firm works with small and medium-sized business. That's not Ford and McDonald's, but it's not Pete's Bait and Tackle shop, unless he has 114 locations. They're not large, but they do have nice offices in Irving and aren't just a guy in the back of a nail salon with a fake accent.
What does your day look like?
1) Daily contact with the client, with high energy and good coaching
2) Lots of learning from your peers, on your own, and the boss
3) Good writing and organization skills. Can't talk about what you don't track, and no one crashes and burns faster than someone trying to wing it at a client site. Everyone knows what to do. Excellence comes from actually doing it.
