We are looking for an incredible customer marketer who can put their talent for customer storytelling and relentless curiosity and testing to use on our energetic marketing team.

We’re looking for a creative, self-motivated individual with a delightful combination of the following skills: marketing, customer advocacy, and content writing, video production, and influencer marketing.

  • Work with customer success, sales, and marketing operations to manage a customer contact process and frequency to maximize participation with 15Five to avoid the pitfalls of excessive or inappropriate communication.

  • Maintain accountability for the enablement of sales, marketing and product teams in the use of customer reference materials.

  • Spearhead customer success enablement including training and information between CS and Product on new features or product changes that impact our customers.

  • Oversee the allocation of budget and other resources for the customer marketing function.

  • Exceptional organizational influence skills

  • Outstanding ability to empathize with customers, sales teams, executives and PR professionals

  • Excellent expertise in narrative storytelling, writing, and editing that is translatable across many mediums

  • Thorough understanding of sales and customer success processes

  • Proven ability and desire to work in a fast-paced, highly dynamic and collaborative environment

  • Never satisfied with the status quo – always looking for opportunities to improve

  • A strategy is not complete unless it includes metrics and clear definitions of success

  • Experience driving measurable outcomes that demonstrate the impact of your work

  • Follow up boss (US only)
    4 weeks ago

    Follow Up Boss is at a unique point in our growth stage - we’ve been able to build a robust and strong product and brand that our customers are drawn to and align with (not to mention a profitable, self funded company).  

    Our strongest performing lead generator has historically been referrals from happy customers; our customer support and success are second-to-none.  While there is both direct and indirect competition in our space, we feel like we’re well positioned as the real estate CRM leader and believe there is ample room for continued growth in the market.   

    We’ve gotten to this point largely without any real “Marketing Engine” and believe we need to now add this as a primary focus for the business.  We feel that in order to achieve the growth targets we’ve set for the company it is imperative we actively promote and create awareness of the Follow Up Boss product and brand to the right customers (i.e. agencies and teams needing a CRM solution).  

    Our focus has never been on outward promotion or brand positioning and we feel that needs to change and we need someone to own that process. 

    We’re looking for someone who can develop and execute a strategic marketing plan consisting of aggressive demand generation programs, strategic product marketing and content plans, digital campaigns, event/experience initiatives, and comprehensive sales and partner enablement initiatives designed to deliver on revenue and growth targets - while important, we’re not looking for someone to focus on drip campaigns, on-boarding experience or incremental growth ideas.  We need someone who understands and can focus on the big picture, increasing the top of the funnel; someone who can help us be noticed, be seen and be found.

     We don’t currently have a marketing team, so much of the work this role will entail is the practical day-to-day stuff.  We want someone who understands marketing analytics, can cut through the BS and help us focus on the right metrics and growth drivers.

    We’re looking for someone to completely own this side of the business and lead the strategy and execution - we’re looking for an “A Player”: someone who’s done this before in a similar stage company, in a similar industry, with a similar product offering and price point.   

    Who Is Follow Up Boss?

    • We’re a powerful, intuitive, sales-focused CRM for real estate teams (and we use our own product)

    • We’re a self funded, profitable company started back in April of 2011

    • We’re a remote company with a mostly US-based team

    • We don’t just claim to be customer-centric - we live it: https://www.facebook.com/followupboss/reviews

    • Growing and acquiring monthly free trials - successful past experience is a must!

    • Translating the marketing plan into actionable quarterly targets and initiatives, keeping the team and budget on schedule

    • Continuous analysis of competitive environment and industry trends

    Your qualifications:

    • Minimum experience of 5 years in B2B SaaS software marketing (experience in the real estate market a plus!)

    • Ability to grow and lead a small team but not just seeking a hands off management role

    • Proven track record of creating and driving a marketing strategy that delivers on brand/product promises, creates engaging customer experiences, enables the sales process, and drives revenue growth
