Responsibilities

National Fatherhood Initiative™ (NFI), a B2B non-profit organization, is looking for a self-driven, data- and customer-driven marketer to manage the marketing funnel for our organization. You will be in charge of attracting site traffic through original and existing content and offers, converting that traffic into new leads for the business, and nurturing those leads to close customers. You will also be responsible for nurturing marketing qualified leads such as those who have attended an NFI training institute. Finally, you will help manage NFI’s blog, social media accounts, direct mail campaigns, and Google ads.

Responsibilities

  • Create and manage a content library and editorial calendar that attracts a qualified audience to our properties (including blog posts, whitepapers, ebooks, reports, webinars, infographics, etc.).
  • Grow new leads, including marketing-qualified leads, by converting site traffic through calls-to-action, landing pages, and lead generation content.
  • Create original content for and optimize marketing automation and lead nurturing processes through email, workflows, blogs, and social media channels.
  • Establish closed-loop analytics to understand how our inbound and outbound marketing activity turns into customers, and continually refine our processes to convert leads into customers.

Required Education, Experience, and Skills

  • Education: Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Communications, or a similar field.
  • Experience: At least 1-2 years in a similar role using Hubspot Marketing and Sales Hubs or similar marketing automation and CRM software (e.g., Marketo, Salesforce, and Marketing Cloud) to manage marketing and sales activities.

Other Desired Experience

  • HTML/CSS, Uberflip, BigCommerce, Google AdWords, SEO, graphic or web design, and direct mail.

Finally, your views—particularly on the well-being of children, families, and communities—must be supported by research and evidence.

They must also align with the wide breadth of population-based research that shows children who grow up with their two married parents are more likely to have positive outcomes than children who grow up without their two married parents.

To Apply
Please submit the following to jobs@fatherhood.org:

Art Director/Digital Designer – Smiths Agency

MUST HAVE AGENCY EXPERIENCE

We are looking for a motivated, hands-on Art Director who is not only talented, but fast. This position is a mid-level opportunity that requires a solid understanding of marketing and creative strategy, and how to tell a rich brand story in all media — but with particular focus on digital media.

We’re looking for a real pro who’s obsessed with quality but recognizes we’re in a deadline-driven business and embraces the pressure to deliver. We’re looking for a leader-in-the-making who’s inspired to create great work and inspires others with the example they set along the way.

We would prefer a colleague who actively keeps up on current trends and technologies. To be clear: while we don’t expect you to know how to code, you actively keep up on best practices to ensure that you have an enthusiastic and strong understanding of the web – and digital – as a medium. This includes not only a good design sense but also an understanding of the impact design has on accessibility, site performance, UX, and responsive design.

The Art Director / Digital Designer we’re looking for will have both serious conceptual chops and be detail oriented. They will own their projects from concept through final execution, recognizing it’s up to them to protect the integrity of their visual ideas (and the overall aesthetic of their work) to the end. They will be expected to effectively present, and more importantly sell creative work to clients and internal stakeholders.

As a vital part of their job, our new Art Director / Digital Designer will also provide art direction and leadership to designers and project teammates. We will count heavily on them to participate in new business pitches. Finally, they will acknowledge that creating killer business-driving ideas and executing flawlessly for national and regional Food and Beverage brands can and should lead to awards, but that the single-minded pursuit of awards isn’t in the client’s, nor therefore the agency’s, interest.

Reports to: Executive Creative Director

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Function as lead designer on multiple creative projects
  • Collaborate with Copywriters to produce a very high-quality concept
  • Working with the development and creative team, deliver highly interactive web sites, banner/digital ads and social media promotions
  • Brainstorm ideas for websites, banner ads, promotions and other digital media and learn best practices for creating compelling online marketing campaigns
  • Understanding user interface design, architecture, and functionality according to usability best practices and responsive design
  • Responsible for seeing the project through from initial client kick-off to the project launch, participating in internal reviews and the QA/testing steps
  • Clearly thinks through all responsive design breakpoints to design the best possible user and device experience
  • Understands design standards for mobile and touch devices. Also a clear understanding of what “Mobile-First” actually means.
  • Supervise production work assigned to project team members
  • Monitor progress of projects through all phases of production
  • Deliver presentations to team members, senior Creative Department staff, and clients
  • Design in a variety of styles
