DIGITAL ADVERTISING ACCOUNT MANAGER

Do you want to be in charge of big digital accounts but still work at a smaller company where everyone knows your name? Like to travel to New York or San Francisco once in a while but live in the Washington DC area? Like flexing both sides of your brain while interacting with clients?  Are you looking for a job with room for growth?

Then InvestorPlace Media has the perfect job for you.

 Position Summary

You’ll own the advertising account management function for InvestorPlace.com, one of the leading sites on the web for finance and investing.  You’ll be expected to hit the ground running managing and building upon the relationships we have in place with big-brand agencies and finance-endemic brands to reach the 2MM unique visitors who visit our site each month.

Our advertisers rely on InvestorPlace.com to reach a premium finance audience (highest HHI, portfolio size, and investing activity of any finance site).  You’ll be in charge of making sure that their campaigns succeed.

We need you to develop and manage media and audience strategy (via display, native ads, dedicated emails, and other digital media); build innovative digital media plans; and work with our editorial and advertising operations teams to ensure delivery against our advertising clients’ commitments.

You’ll report directly to the general manager of the site.  No bureaucracy.  No layers.  You’ll have freedom to succeed….and to make sure our advertisers succeed, too.

Oh, and don’t worry if you don’t know a lot about stocks or investing yet.  We’ll teach you.

Knowledge/Skill Requirements  

We’re looking for someone who knows digital media, but more importantly someone with intellectual curiosity, the people skills to connect with clients, and the flexibility to balance our needs with our clients’ needs.  That might be demonstrated with the following background:

  • But most importantly, the strong desire to do whatever it takes to make sure that we deliver for our advertisers

Sure, it’s better if you’ve grown up in digital media.  But honestly, it’s not mandatory.  If you think you’ve got what it takes to succeed here but don’t happen to have those specific attributes….make your case in your cover letter.  We’re hiring for ability, not experience.  Convince us.

Responsibilities

  • Develop media plans to address advertiser requirements. Deliver creative and practical digital media services that address and achieve client business and marketing goals
  • Successfully launch new advertising campaigns
  • Analyze, benchmark, and report campaign performance
  • Grow existing advertising client relationships
