ONLINE SALES & MARKETING INTERN
Urban Gardens, | Other - Virtual Job
Reports To: Publisher/Creative Director
Urban Gardens, an award-winning and Webby-nominated green lifestyle and design blog with over 30K readers and 7K Twitter followers, is offering internships to self-motivated and outgoing individuals with marketing, business development, and social media skills to research and identify blog sponsorship and advertising leads and develop and manage a sales and marketing strategy/plan.
This is a unique hands-on experience working directly with the blog’s publisher and creative director. Together we will set goals, define strategies, and measure your successes. Interns will work virtually, with two weekly calls to discuss progress and next steps as well as daily communication as needed via email.
We offer a rich learning experience working for a successful design blog. Guidance will be provided, but the self-motivated candidate should be up for the challenge of taking responsibility for and running an online sales and marketing program.
We are looking for an outgoing, articulate, organized, and enthusiastic individual who wants to take the initiative and doesn’t mind making cold calls and following up on sales leads. An interest in green lifestyle and interior/exterior and product design a big plus.
Sales and marketing skills/interest, strong writing & communication skills a must, good knowledge of social media, and some knowledge of email marketing is also helpful.
This is an unpaid internship but we will reward those with an entrepreneurial spirit by offering a percentage of each acquired sponsorship or ad account. We will consider a paid internship for those with qualified experience.
