Project Description

Advantage Media Group is a publisher of business and self help books across many industries. Several of our authors are also speakers looking to book paid speaking engagements over the next year.

We are seeking a responsible, motivated individual who can research, cold-call and submit relevant marketing materials on behalf of our speaking clients. This person should have experience finding new ways to approach the same challenge. He/she should be able to meet pre-determined weekly milestones and debrief a project manager on the weekly progress and results. Outreach is a key component of the role and requires active calling and emailing of event planners, association members, and other corporate contacts in an effort to build a relationship and negotiate a keynote or workshop. Administrative tasks may include compiling marketing materials and filling out forms to be submitted for specific conference events. Prior experience in sales or public relations outreach a plus.

This position will require 8 - 12 hours per week for approximately three months. We are seeking a commitment from someone who is driven by results and can get started quickly with outbound calling.

In your proposal, please include any prior relevant experience. You may also wish to include examples of your prior outreach experience or submit a plan for how you would approach obtaining speaking opportunities for someone speaking about entrepreneurism, women's leadership or financial planning.
