Sales and Marketing Associate
Everyday Feminism is hiring a part-time Sales and Marketing Associate who will be responsible for dramatically growing sales and broadening the customer base for our online School for Social Justice. We’re looking for a superstar candidate who is hungry to build a powerhouse sales and marketing operation for one of the most popular intersectional feminist sites in the world.
This opportunity is a great match for someone who is strongly self-motivated to reach ambitious sales targets, has a background in online marketing and sales, and is deeply familiar with the intersectional feminist space and EF’s mission and role in online media. It is a starter position with a lot of potential for experimentation and significant room to grow based on performance.
Everyday Feminism launched the School for Social Justice this January and has already released a dozen webinars and trainings and sold over 1,500 seats in total. The Sales and Marketing Associate will be responsible for doubling that rate of sales in the first six months of their position through a combination of email marketing and list building, partnerships with influencers and affiliates, targeted advertising, social media, and other creative approaches. Our goal is to achieve 10x growth in rate of sales within the next two years through building out a full sales and marketing operation.
The Sales and Marketing Associate is supervised by the Interim Executive Director. Since we are a virtual organization, the Sales and Marketing Associate works from home and attends meetings via telephone and videoconferencing.
This 20 hrs/week part-time staff position is compensated at $23/hr and includes a partial health insurance reimbursement. The position will also receive a commission on sales growth. A performance review will be conducted after the first six months to negotiate a wage and hours increase if sales targets are met.
