Position Overview

This position’s primary focus will be to expand the reach of our business, brand, podcast, and online training programs by creating, distributing, and curating engaging content for our audience through social media.

The position requires candidates to come into our office in Carlsbad, California. Hours for this position are 9am-5pm PST, Monday-Friday, but are somewhat flexible as this position is more about accomplishing certain tasks and objectives with a high level of responsiveness.

  • Social Media Growth: Developing strategies to grow our social media platforms both in customer engagement (comments, dialogue, sharing) and numeric value (number of followers, friends).
  • Campaign Creation: Partner with our content and marketing teams to help support our product launches on the social front. You’ll do this by designing and executing results-driven, lead-generating, and high-converting social media campaigns.
  • Analytics: Constantly tracking and reporting on social analytics and metrics, making suggestions for improvement based on your findings in these reports. Measuring sentiment about our brand, products, and services on the social web and responding accordingly.
  • Research: Researching and staying up to speed on new social media marketing strategies and how we can use them to add value to our audience.
  • Community Management: Owning community engagement and responding to customers who voice their complaints on social media channels.
