As the Regional Marketing Manager, you are the business strategist and partner to our Sales team. You will serve as the marketing leader of your assigned sales territory(ies) and will create and own the Territory Marketing Plan that ensures your region(s) are achieving business goals. You will own and deliver all region-specific marketing activities in the Territory Marketing Plan, while influencing, orchestrating, and providing visibility to other areas of the overall national Marketing plan that span multiple Sales regions.
Why You’ll Love This Role:
You’ll get the chance to be a true business partner to our Sales teams and help build a Regional Marketing organization from the ground up. You will touch on nearly all aspects of Marketing; planning, data, creative, relationship building, execution. In this role you will be helping to define the next phase of Newsela’s brand in the market, and will get to spearhead the regional manifestation of that strategy. Your work will directly contribute to growing Newsela’s impact on the K-12 market, and make a meaningful contribution to transforming education.
Why We’ll Love You:
As a data-driven marketer, you possess a deep understanding of direct marketing, digital marketing, and account-based marketing. You’ve employed a diverse marketing mix (digital, tele, social, data, and strategic use of events) to successfully drive growth. You know how to marry the art and science of marketing to identify and track quantifiable business contributions, supported by qualitative measures. And you have experience with the salesforce and marketing management and tracking tools common to Sales and Marketing teams. You’re a natural relationship-builder, and have the ability to speak the language of the business, translating marketing metrics into business drivers that your Sales team values. You have a history of successfully executing account-based marketing and marketing to, with and through partners, and have a passion for coaching other team members on best practices in those areas. This is a heavily influential role, so the ability to communicate clearly, persuasively, and assertively is a must.
