Fat Bullfrog (fatbullfrog.com) is a small digital marketing agency that manages various types of marketing campaigns for clients. The work we're best at includes:

  • Social media advertising
  • Email marketing
  • Conversion rate optimization
  • Search engine marketing (paid and organic)

We are looking to add an assistant to support those areas where our team provides services and have immediate needs to help clients that are:

  • Technology vendors to the healthcare industry
  • Manufacturers and retailers of premium children's apparel and accessories
  • Manufacturers and retailers of premium accessories for women
  • Manfactureres and retailers of premium outdoor products

Our clients range from startups to medium-sized companies preparing for IPO, but they are all positioned as premium vendors ... for example, several of the clothing and accessory vendors we work with are carried by Nordstrom and high-end boutiques.

Ultimately, we'd like to bring you on as a general assistant to support our team in various tasks and then promote you to a "specialist" role once we find out where you really shine and what sort of work you most enjoy.

As a digital marketing assitant, your daily responsibilites will likely include at least some of these types of activity:

  • Creating reports using tools like Google Analytics, Shopify, etc.
  • Gathering information and assets from clients for various types of marketing efforts
  • Building ad campaigns on major advertising platforms (Facebook, AdWords, etc.)
  • Building and managing email campaigns using major email marketing platforms (Klaviyo, MailChimp, etc.)
  • Posting and formatting content on blogs, landing pages, product pages, sales letters, etc.
  • Helping to coordinate internal workflow and keep projects on track
  • Other activities that arise from time to time

Ideally, you will have at least some prior successes with digital marketing, though you need not be experienced in all the areas listed above. Here are a few non-negotiable traits we look for in digital marketing assistants:

  • Smart
  • Hard-working
  • Humble

Over the years, we've found that we do a poor job of developing those traits in someone who does not already possess them, people either have that down before we get together, or it usually doesn't work out.

Other things that may not seem immediately relevant that typically lead people to succeed as members of our team:

  • High level of attention to detail
  • Strong writing skills, including a knack for explaining complicated things in a simple fasion through visual communication (writing, screen capture, etc.)
  • Self-managing without the need for regular supervision
  • Comfortable with spreadsheets (if you've never built a pivot table or done a vlookup in Excel this might not be a good fit)

One more thing ... this is a remote-work position as a contractor. You'll manage your own schedule, provide your own computer and software tools (aside from a few tools we use that we have an agency-level license for), and be responsible for delivering amazing results. We typically like to start people off at a low level (maybe 5 - 10 hours per week) while we're getting to know each other, but once we figure out that we like working together, there's a lot of work that needs to be done, so we can pile it on as high as you'd like.
