Marketing Manager, Lead Nurturing

Job Title: Marketing Manager, Lead Nurturing

Location: 177 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts

Reporting: Reports to Director of Marketing


Job Description

We need your talented marketing mind to focus on nurturing leads and presenting our core suite of PPC software in a compelling and thoughtful way. Your goal is to qualify and convert prospects into happy customers through the use of digital marketing touch points.

As a Marketing Manager, Lead Nurturing, you will be responsible for understanding what activities increase conversion rate throughout a leads lifecycle resulting in customer generation. Leveraging leads from our database, and using online marketing tactics such as email, webinars and our website, you’ll develop stage appropriate programs to qualify and convert leads. You will engage prospects and add value through content, resources, and other calls-to-action. Your offer arsenal includes award-winning free tools like our AdWords Performance Grader, a 7-day free trial of our WordStream Advisor software, Thought-Leadership content like eBooks/Guides and blog posts, and more.

You have a unique mix of database and email marketing know-how. You – like us – see Marketing as a way to grow a company, not as overhead or a “cost center” on a balance sheet. You are not afraid of goals – success for this position will be measured in hitting specific monthly Sales Qualified Lead (SQL) targets. You are smart, creative, energetic, and love a challenge. You want to work in a fast-paced – and fast-growing – start-up environment, surrounded by hard-working and intelligent people. You want a manager that will mentor you, not micromanage you. You want to write your own ticket for success at a company that’s going somewhere.
