Job Responsibilities
Independently manage our Google Adwords display, video and search campaigns. Your goal is solid ROI and creativity to scale up quickly. This is where fitness knowledge comes in very handy!
Your main responsibility will be to generate a direct response profit from display campaigns. However, if you can manage our search campaigns as well this will be a plus.
Manage our full time copywriter and graphic designers to create any needed landing pages to run successful campaigns.
Work directly with our Google representatives and other key contacts. Google is in our office at least once per quarter with some new and exciting advertising opportunities or ideas that we need implemented quickly.
We've got a great reputation with Google. As a matter of fact unless you've worked FOR Google you probably haven't had a relationship with them like we do. Come talk to us and you'll see what we've got going on. It's pretty exciting.
Work directly with the CMO and co-owner to create a robust search advertising strategy that encompasses search and display.

Qualifications You Need
Minimum of two years successful experience managing Adwords or Yahoo/Bing direct response display advertising accounts with budgets exceeding $100,000 per month. I am not looking for someone who believes they are capable of handling a workload like this based off of their experience managing smaller accounts. We need someone who already has successful experience with direct response advertising so any branding or non-direct response advertising experience will not be considered.

You've already killed it at your current position and are looking to apply that experience on a larger scale.

Qualifications we'd like to see in a successful applicant

The Type Of Person We're Looking For

Previous (or current) marketing experience in fitness or nutraceutical marketing, or general health would be a great boon for any successful applicant. We exploit niches while growing our footprint across ALL of fitness.
Will work and produce results independently. We'll be there to help with direction but we cannot be there to teach you from the ground up.

You will work 8 hours per day in our office between 9 AM and 9 PM. We are flexible on the times you are in the office after your first thirty days on board with us.
Your first month will be a training month where you'll be meeting daily with Dan Rose (the CMO), or Mike Naydeck our COO, to learn our advertising methodologies.
