Job Requirements Witty gift company and book publisher seeks quick-thinking Marketing Assistant to join our team. We are looking for someone who has a strong passion for social media and is creative, assertive, and prepared to assist with all facets of marketing and public relations.

A. Role Overview
The Marketing Assistant (MA) will support the day-to-day marketing operations of the Marketing and Digital Coordinator (MDC). This position will assist with PR efforts, including conducting research for media and blogger outreach, managing product mailings, and providing admin support for the marketing department. The MA will aid in generating social media content, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, and blog posts for both the Knock Knock and Plumb brands. The MA will aid in analysis of marketing efforts by compiling and summarizing information for both online and offline initiatives. The ideal MA will be obsessed with social media, unable to stay away both on and off the job, and very knowledgeable about different platforms and blogs. This is not an interest we seek to teach, but rather one that should be preexisting in the right candidate.

B. Primary Responsibilities
• Display strong passion for social media and blogging within the company, coming from a place of personal expertise and investment. As a paper and product company, Knock Knock needs support in continuing to push itself in the digital domain.
• Be a driver in social media, online promotion and communication—assisting marketing team in generating ideas for new shareable social content, contests, and promotions.
• Assist in maintaining and contributing to the growth of Knock Knock’s and Plumb’s social channels, including researching successful viral campaigns with the goal of driving traffic to our e-commerce sites.
• Assist in reading and responding to comments on our websites and on popular social networks.
• Research potential websites and blogs for which Knock Knock and Plumb product might be a good fit.
• In conjunction with the MDC, network and conduct outreach with bloggers.
• Help grow each brand’s blogger-outreach database.
• Support external PR agency, managing product mailings and keeping track of inventory as needed.
• Stay aware of viral memes that are applicable to company efforts.
• Assist with video production efforts as needed.
• Provide general admin support for marketing team.

C. Requirements
• Bachelor’s degree in marketing, English, journalism, or communications, or relevant experience and/or interest.
• Very strong writing skills, as befits a position that will be a major part of two brands’ online voices. Ability to proofread own work is a crucial part of the position.
• Extremely strong and passionate social media knowledge, usage, and interest, specifically Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and blogging, both our brands’ blogs and others’.
• Dynamic and strong personality, with the desire and ability to advocate for digital marketing within the company.
• Proficiency in Microsoft Office and facility with computers overall. Experience in Adobe Creative Suite and any video editing software is a plus.
• Experienced in posting on and interacting with different social media platforms.
• Ability to work in a collaborative environment.
• Tendency to thrive in fast-paced, dynamic environment. This is a department that needs to move quickly and expertly. The ability to multitask is critical, as is the tendency to look at the clock and think, “Is it 6:00 p.m. already?” rather than “When will it be 6:00 p.m.? Seems like forever.”
• Highly organized, with ability to keep track of own schedule and deliverables.
