Let’s face it. You’re a cold, calculating ad revenue machine. When the sky was in the red, you threw a harpoon at a cloud and made it rain money. Of course, there are ignorant people out there who say that your ways are pugilistic, even swash-buckling. Those around you, however, know that there’s a heart of solid gold to go with that harpoon of yours. As Chief Revenue Officer for this international disease and disability awareness brand, you’ll get to use both.
Our client is a privately-held, internationally supported media company with a clear mission: to provide a social and learning platform for caregivers of those facing serious health conditions. They have a ton of content from a huge roster of editorial contributors, who share their real life experience with a readership of over five million. While they have to this point run on private and public funding, they are ready to become a self-sustaining machine. That’s where you come in.
Our client is looking to partner with the big players of the health and wellness space, and source revenue through native ads. As Chief Revenue Officer, it will be up to you to build a team to cover strategic partnership planning and ad operations. As you and your team write a roadmap to monetization, you personally will focus on creating strategic processes and reeling in the big fish, top-tier ad partners.
Hired Gun Profile
As the Hired Gun for this role, you should be ready to become a partner in the business, not just a new hire. We need an executive-level ad sales pro who can whip up a strategy and really get things done. Maybe you’ve worked on the agency side of things, or in-house at a health/medical brand. You’ll be in even better shape if you’ve had experience building a team from scratch.
This is the chance to get in on the ground floor of what will become a huge ad sales program. Putting in the work early on will pay good dividends.
If you’re ready to go to bat for a company that cares about people, and you’re ready to start from scratch, this is the job for you.
