You may be the ideal Traffic Acquisition Manager if...
Your interest in the details borders on insane.
While other people round to the nearest penny, you want to know about thousandths of a cent. You know that when you’re dealing with transactions by the millions, no amount is too small to notice. Other people think this makes you weird, but so what? You’re right.
You’re driven by analytics.
You like opinions as much as the next person...but you know they don’t matter if there’s data you can make decisions from instead.
File folders and spreadsheets give you warm, happy feelings that your friends don’t fully understand.
There’s a lot to keep track of as you maintain relationships with traffic partners, find and negotiate new partnerships, test Facebook ads, and continually optimize existing campaigns. This kind of task management and data analysis not only comes naturally to you, it kind of thrills you in a way you’re a little bit proud of.
You’re easy to work with.
Despite your obsession with the details and your analytical predisposition, you’re somehow still personable. It’s not always easy being a genius, but you’ve found a way to get normal people to like you...usually.
You thrive under the pressure of goals that stretch the bounds of possibility.
You love work if it’s a challenge...and it’s only a challenge if it’s damn near impossible.
You are technologically adept.
You are highly familiar on at least a basic level with Wordpress, HTML, photo editing, Google Analytics, Google Drive, Microsoft Word, Excel, Gmail, and right-clicking to open a new tab over and over until your browser shuts down.
You are experienced...probably.
Ideally, you have substantial experience in social media marketing, advertising (with an emphasis on Facebook ads), and account management. If not, you can point to specific related roles you’ve held that demonstrate that you would be able to quickly and smoothly transition into this role.
