RELEVANT, the leading magazine and media company reaching Christian twenty- and thirty-somethings, is seeking to add a marketing and growth-minded account executive as part of our advertising team. Founded in 2000, RELEVANT has experienced extraordinary audience growth in the last couple of years, and now consistently reaches more than 5 million people a month through our platforms. Most of that growth has come through our digital platforms, and not unexpectedly, our revenue model has drastically changed too. But we're just scratching the surface of what's now possible.
The ideal candidate is a media and marketing expert that has great insight into RELEVANT's audience, mission and market. The position will focus on expanding our advertising revenue growth momentum, and help spot the right opportunities and strategies to increase partner effectiveness and take revenue to the next level. We are a mission-driven company, and the account executive is a strategic position to combine our spiritual purpose with strong business acumen.
Our ideal candidate has a proven track record of sales revenue growth, and now they want to apply that experience at a creative, independent media company that dreams big and has a truly unique voice straddling faith and culture. They are a goal-driven self-starter with a thorough knowledge of marketing, strategy, budgeting and media. The candidate should be up to date with print, multimedia, social media and web trends. The candidate should be well-rounded with good communication, presentation, leadership and writing skills.
Because RELEVANT sits at the crossroads of the Christian and mainstream marketplaces, the ideal candidate will have a working knowledge of both markets. Increasing national mainstream advertising on RELEVANT's platforms is a primary focus of this position.
Previous sales experience with proven growth is a must. Marketing agency experience or digital media sales is strongly preferred.
- Bachelor’s degree in business administration, marketing, advertising, media or related field of study
- Sales, agency, business or media experience with quantifiable success
- A strong knowledge of, and genuine passion for, RELEVANT’s audience, subject matter and purpose
- Expertise in print, multimedia and web marketing
- The ability to multi-task on numerous accounts or campaigns
- Experience analyzing market research and formulating actionable plans
- Effective time management and organizational skills
