Job type: Commission-based
The major duties of our Marketing Coaches involve connecting quickly with people in a poised, convincing, and enthusiastic way. This is a sales position and requires prior experience in managing a business or organization’s social media feeds. Our marketing coaches work at an extremely fast pace, and require working cooperatively with and through people in order to complete tasks, and are integral in motivating others. This position requires a strong sense of urgency, initiative, and drive to complete tasks, with emphasis on working with and through people in the process. Understanding people well and using that understanding effectively in motivating and persuading others to act, is an important aspect of the Marketing Coach position. It is important in this role for goals to be set and reached, and for tasks to be completed in a timely manner. Decisions have to be made under pressure, and will generally need the ideas and advice of others. Details will need to be handled quickly and accurately, but will not be a repetitive part of the position. Many tasks as a Marketing Coach may entail selling or persuading others, and/or may entail training others in some capacity. This position involves controlling all aspects of tasks, from the initiation, through the process and through to completion.
