Online Optimism is seeking an Atlanta-based digital marketing strategist to join our growing team. We are a creative, digital marketing agency, with offices in New Orleans, and Atlanta, dedicated to our vision: to be the agency that companies want to work with, and people aspire to work for.

This position will work on our Growth team, working to build up our inbound marketing strategies, and assisting their conversion from lead to client. While you will start remotely due to COVID-19, you will be expected to meet with businesses in the Atlanta area, so you must be based there.

Your position will revolve around the following tasks:

  • 30% working on our business development proposals. This will include assessing an organization’s digital marketing strategies, auditing analytics, creating mock-ups, and crafting campaign strategies. 
  • 30% working on business development strategies, utilizing inbound methods to generate brand awareness within Atlanta. This includes creating valuable resources such as whitepapers, guides, how-tos, webinars, and more.
  • 25% Pitching proposals face-to-face with potential leads in Atlanta. This does not mean cold calls, and you will never do cold calls. You will only be speaking to potential clients that are interested and qualified. We are, after all, pretty good at this whole digital marketing thing, and you’ll arrive with leads interested in speaking with you.
  • 15% digital marketing client work. You may step in at times to complement our other marketing strategists, in various departments (SEO, content, social media, Google Ads).

If you’re looking for a place to grow where your work (and you) will be appreciated and rewarded, you’ll find a home at Online Optimism.

This position was posted on Thursday, March 4th, 2021. Applications are being considered on a rolling basis so apply today.

In order to be considered, you’re required to have:
  • 1 – 3 years of digital marketing experience, preferably at an agency in the Atlanta area, but open to in-house positions or other geographic markets.
  • At least some tactile experience with social media, paid search, SEO, and email marketing for businesses. We understand you won’t be an expert in all of these areas, but you should have at least created assets for each of these at some point in your career.
  • Passion for digital marketing, and helping businesses grow.
  • Strong knowledge of Atlanta, and a love for helping businesses grow there.
While not 100% required, we would love to see these elements in your background.
  • Work creating pitch proposals for marketing agencies.
  • Proven case studies showing results with ROI numbers.
  • Paid social media experience.
  • Google Analytics Individual Qualifications
  • Google Ads Certifications
  • Facebook Blueprint Certifications
In addition, we don’t expect applicants to have this on their resume, but they would be bonuses if you do:
  • Graphic Design experience
  • Creative background (particularly any photography work previously done)
  • Previous strategy/insights work
  • Basic HTML/CSS knowledge, or previous work on WordPress websites.
  • Experience with Moz, Sprout Social, SEMrush, Acquisio, or Optymzr
