This highly respected and widely circulated magazine has just one thing on its mind lately: growth. It’s dead-set on expanding both its digital and print presences, and it’s ready to bring in a Big Gun to inject that effort with some serious energy and savoir-faire when it comes to reaching new audiences. You being just such a Big Gun, we thought we should probably tell you about this gig, especially seeing as how it represents such a grand opportunity to do exciting and very substantial work for an outfit known for earning the loyalty of its employees. Do yourself a favor and keep reading!
The minute you get on board, you’ll take a good hard look at the existing brand. Drawing on digital analytics, consumer research and your own deep knowledge of best practices in the media space, you’ll decide what aspects of the brand could be further leveraged and what’s impeding greater growth. From that careful analysis, you’ll develop a brand marketing strategy integrated with strategies for boosting revenues and circulation.
Then it’s on to implementing said strategies. The entire product development cycle for advertising, marketing, events and web products will be yours to oversee, from concept through launch. You’ll be the one supervising and developing the business team to ensure that those revenue targets are being hit, and when it comes to audience growth, you’ll be right down in the trenches with editorial and digital as you all collaborate on new content, new formats and expansion into new channels and platforms. It’s a huge ownership role, with broad responsibilities folded up into it — again, the idea being that you come aboard with significant expertise in all the areas relevant to crushing the hell out of audacious growth goals at a big magazine.
