Why should you join L2TMedia?  

Let’s start with the basics! L2TMedia is a premiere Digital Marketing Company focused on the automotive industry. We love car dealers and know how to help them succeed through our line of products that include Social Media Impact, Display Advertising, Video Advertising, Reputation Management, SEO and most importantly for this role, Paid Search (commonly called SEM or PPC).  

Not only are we partnered with the cream of the crop as Google Premier Partners as well as Bing Select Partners, these partnerships give us a great edge and access to extensive product training!

Our awesome office in Evanston is centrally located within walking distance from the Metra and CTA and loads of restaurants. We dig deep to provide our clients with the best service possible and when you’re not learning the ins and outs of Google AdWords campaigns, Google Analytics and Bing Advertising, you’ll be challenging your coworkers to the never ending Jenga game happening in the office.

We offer an environment of growth from within, constant collaboration and ongoing training to bring you to the next level. Your team is filled with smart problem solvers with a little bit of quiet nerdiness sprinkled in (we may or may not have several Sonic Screwdrivers around the office… and possibly a TARDIS).
