Paid Advertising Manager (Remote)
Full time

Hi, we're Banzai đź‘‹!

Our mission at Banzai is to restore human connections to marketing. We are a rapidly growing marketing technology company that provides engagement marketing solutions that reach millions of users every year. Banzai helps our customers educate and build relationships with their buyers through event marketing automation, webinars, and virtual/hybrid events.

After closing our Series A, acquiring Capterra's top-rated webinar solution Demio, and not only surviving ((as a LIVE EVENT MARKETING SOLUTION)) the pandemic but thriving, Banzai is ready to put our money and marketing muscle to good use. And we need a talented person who loves building digital ad growth programs from the ground up to help us do it!

You'll start with some very fertile ground. 80%+ of our traffic and sales come from organic channels at present. Yep, that's right. We've built a business purely on great word-of-mouth, strong product and content marketing, and a little third-party agency help. We also have a super talented operations and data team to support nurture programs and reporting, so we're set up for successful lifecycle management programs.

Requirements

For this position, we'd look for you to be:

  • Able to ask the right questions upfront, gather the information you need, and charge forth on a very short timeline. We have aggressive growth targets for the next quarter, and we need someone to (cliched phrase alert) hit the ground running
  • Someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves, learn a bit about both the Banzai Demio and Banzai Reach businesses, then charge forth and conquer LinkedIn, Facebook, Google Ads, Bing Ads, YouTube, and whatever other channels allow us to connect with our ICP
  • Comfortable leveraging both direct and retargeting methodologies to lure enterprise digital marketers who need help hosting webinars, driving attendees to their virtual and live events
  • Very comfortable pulling reports to feature your successes, but also explain why certain channels, messaging, or audience targets missed the mark
  • Comfortable with both B2C and B2B marketing tactics. Our business units have different KPIs (driving free trial signups for Demio; driving MQLs and SQLs for Banzai Reach) and we need someone with the experience to handle both sides
  • Experienced with Tableau, Hubspot and Salesforce
  • Friendly, Personable, Positive, and Creative Business communication skills, written and verbal. Ability to work with our Marketing and Operations teams seamlessly.


Responsibilities would include:

  1. Devise, implement and run innovative campaigns across your client accounts in line with the clients' goals and objectives requesting any landing pages or creatives from Banzai’s marketing team.
  2. Develop a strong understanding of the products, competition, industry, marketing goals, and objectives
  3. Manage budgets in line with the strategy and ensure that Monthly Spend is on target
  4. Optimize accounts for maximum performance using a variety of PPC practices
  5. Use our Attribution and Analytics software to compile and draw insight from both company-specific sector-specific and generic industry data, in order to better understand user trends and behavior and add context to the performance of each channel
  6. Carry out regular maintenance, ensuring the efficient day-to-day management of these campaigns
  7. Ensure your knowledge of advertising is up to date and relevant by researching/reading blogs and news sources
  8. Setup and Manage Google network ads (Display, Search Network, Remarketing, etc.)
  9. Setup and Manage Bing ad campaigns
  10. Setup and Manage YouTube ad campaigns (videos will be provided by client)

Benefits

  • 401(k) plan with match
  • Health, dental & vision insurance
  • Unlimited vacation policy
  • Flexible work-from-home options
  • Monthly stipend cards to support work/life balance
  • Six weeks fully paid parental leave
  • Mentorship within our engineering organization by an experienced functional leader
  • Working with a truly mission-driven team motivated by excellence
  • Real room for growth in professional and personal development
