We are looking to hire a part-time, long-term Account Coordinator (and general marketing rockstar). Our Account Coordinators play a vital role here. They’re the connection between us and our clients; they’re in charge of keeping those clients happy; they’re the makers of amazing monthly email campaigns.
This job is a permanent contractor role within our company. You’ll have plenty of flexibility to get your work done, but that comes with accountability. You should be generally available from 10 to 4, Monday through Thursday (yes, you read that right – we take Friday’s off). This is when client meetings, team meetings, communication, and collaboration happen. If you have other commitments during this time, this isn’t a good fit.
As an Account Coordinator, you’re going to be responsible for a handful of diverse clients (i.e., your accounts could include a high-end dermatology office or a remote fishing lodge). You’ll work on creating a monthly email campaign for them from start to send. This includes coming up with creative concepts, writing compelling copy, coordinating graphic requirements with our designer, A/B testing, requesting and tracking client approval, scheduling, reporting, and everything else in between.
You’ll also attend weekly team meetings and occasional client calls, where you’ll share your ideas and contribute to discussions.
To be successful, you need a blend of some specific skills:
Whether you’re getting buy-in on a content idea or tracking someone down for an approval; you should be a perfect balance of persuasive, professional, persistent, and personable.
I.e., Can you juggle? More importantly: Can you focus? You’ll be working on several email campaigns for different clients all at the same time. You have to be able to transition from one project to the next without dropping the ball but disciplined enough to focus on each task and ensure high-quality completion.
You have experience and know-how to hook an audience with a headline, dazzle them with compelling copy, and persuade them to click, buy, sign up, stay tuned, or whatever else your campaign calls for!
Still interested? See if the following describes you:
WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR
12-20 hours per week of work. That’s about how much you’ll be working with a typical client load. Want more? Once you prove your marketing prowess, there’s plenty of internal projects we can add you to that will increase your hours. This job can grow into what you make it, but those 12-20 hours will be your primary priority. If what you really need is a full-time job to pay the bills, that’s cool, but this isn’t the right role for you.
A long-term role. To be clear: This isn’t a freelance opportunity. If you’re used to piecing together one-off projects and short-term gigs, we’re not a good fit. The Account Coordinator is a permanent contractor role within our company.
To be part of a team. Yes, you’ll do a lot of work on your own. But lone wolves need not apply. Each month you’ll be working with me, her, him, and them.
Get Paid More for Being Efficient. Your hourly rate will be $20-$25. There is also a year-end bonus.
YOUR SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
2+ years of hands-on marketing experience (email marketing is a huge plus!)
You write good. (Or is it “write well”? You should know the difference.)
Proven ability to meet and beat deadlines.
YOU’LL GET BONUS POINTS FOR
Graphic design skills
Knowledge of email marketing best practices
Familiarity with email platforms (MailChimp, Constant Contact, etc.)
Experience with Basecamp, Highrise, and Google Docs
So, how does that sound?

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO WORK FOR EMAIL BROADCAST?
Working for Email Broadcast as an independent contractor—yes, work from my home—score!
So I had this need… typical stay-at-home-mom that needed to make some additional money to pay for the extras that come with kids: shoes, toys, never-ending school fundraisers, and maybe even braces at some point. My husband works full time, but with the high cost of living it just wasn’t quite enough to cover those “extras.” It was simple: I wanted a part-time job, wielding my copywriting and client wrangling skills, and yet I didn’t want to shell out for daycare while I toiled away in some corporate office.
Enter Email Broadcast… the perfect solution that met these very exact needs. I seriously love my job with an amazing set of badass peeps, great clients, and I can even work in my pj’s if I so wish while I suck down as much coffee as I can take in.
