The Person we're looking for
We understand that Amazon Advertising is going to be new for most marketers. You don’t need Amazon PPC experience to apply. You do, however, need to be a T-Shaped Marketer.
We think strategically about Amazon PPC campaigns and build great relationships with our customers.
- Lives in Austin, Texas: Austin has one of the most exciting startup cultures in the world. Combine that with Amazon Advertising’s rapid growth, and you’ll be in for a thrilling ride.
- Technical Skills or PPC Skills: Knowledge of Amazon Ads, Google Ads, or Facebook Ads is a plus.
- Excel Whiz: We’re going to have you VLOOKUP during your technical interview.
- Strong Communicator: You’ll be using our Amazon PPC Software to provide 1-on-1 video walkthroughs and account insight. You’re also terrific on the phone with clients.
- Passion for Content: You’ll share Amazon PPC News with our content team to help build videos for our YouTube Channel and Blog. Both of which are growing double-digit month over month since inception.
- A Strong Self-Guided Learner: PPC education never ends. This position will monitor Amazon PPC News & Strategy to be sure all of our information is industry-leading.
- Sharing What You Learn: We are building Ad Badger to be the Ad Espresso, Moz, Ahrefs, or Wordstream of Amazon PPC. We believe in providing courses, content, webinar, and other shares to help bolster our community.
- Customer Support & Engagement: We have a growing group of Amazon Sellers, and we want to provide quick answers to their questions.
- Organized: You can balance your focus between larger accounts spending 250k/month and smaller ones with budgets at 1,000/mo, as well as incorporating customer service into the mix.
- Warmth, Friendly, and Fun: You know how to make clients feel comfortable, provide them with confidence, and assurance when things don’t go as planned.
- A Paid Traffic Champ: There are a lot of PPC managers out there that set up an account, and only check it once a month. We’re not one of those PPC-Teams. You love pushing campaigns forward regularly. You are hungry and genuinely get excited when campaigns break records.
- Ambitious: We are not okay with skipping by. We have a culture of excellence and big goals. We aim to grow our MRR 3x in 2020.
The ideal candidate
- A Lifelong Learner That Loves Paid Traffic: If you don’t get excited with a ticket to HeroConf, or don’t read PPC News, this position isn’t for you. We’re going to ask you what you read and how you learn during your interview.
- Strategic Vision: When a campaign doesn’t work out the way you wanted it to, what is your reaction? Do your emotions impact your performance? Are you comfortable building and sharing a strategic vision to map your way out of a performance slump? Can you convey confidence to your clients?
- A Great Teacher: Can you help clients understand when a dip in CTR isn’t a bad thing? Can you help them understand how an increase in ad spend can lead to a rise in profit related to their target ROAS?
- Confident & Self-Driven: A client wants to roll out an all broad match strategy. Do you have the initiative to hop on the phone with them and the confidence to explain why it’s not a good idea to go that broad? Are you comforting enough to not make them feel foolish in the process?
- Online Communication Skills: Do you know how to Control-Tab between browser tabs? Is your WPM sky-high? Can you convey a friendly, confident attitude through an email?
- Analytical Skills: Do you feel like giving someone a high-five after you create a Pivot Table? Do you know when to use VLOOKUP? When you look at account-level metrics, do you have the urge to dig deeper and find the real reasons for performance changes?
- Salesmanship: We are only as good as the client thinks we are. When things go well – can you link our work to increased performance? When things aren’t going well – can you get people on board with the vision to improve?
- Ethical & Honest: We’re proud to talk about what we do or who we work with at the dinner table with our families.
- Has an “Empty Cup“: There is no time for egos or know-it-alls. Understanding how to be knowledgeable, confident, humble, and helpful are core tenants of our culture.
- Technologically Inclined: You don’t need instructions on how to take screenshots, and you’re interested in faster ways to do so.
