Job Description

You will be an Account Manager that directly handles the strategy and operation of Google Ads accounts for a select number of clients with eCommerce stores.

The Work Involved

The technical side of things...

We're specialized in Google Ads for eCommerce. That's it. Ok, Microsoft Ads too, like, 3% of the time. This means we're highly proficient with much of what Google Ads can do, and a handful of useful third-party tools. You're someone who's excited about knowing what we know and learning what we're learning.

  • You'll be creating new campaigns from start to finish, setting them up according to your own strategy, which is always driven by thorough analysis of the data.
  • You'll perform meticulous audits on accounts where the client has come to us with one already running, providing digestible summaries of what you've found and what should be done going forward.
  • You'll work within processes and guides that have been set up. Rather than finding them restrictive to ‘how you do things', you'll see how effectively they cut down on errors and missed opportunities. You'll also love adding your own suggestions to improve these processes.
  • Your attention to detail will be the stuff of legend. From the resume you submit, to your every client communication, to the eventual autobiography of your rise in KeyCommerce, everything will be double-checked for spelling, grammar, and professional presentation.

The people side of things...

Our client relationships are exceptional. These store owners have come to us with a business they've heavily invested their time and money into, and they've chosen us to take them to the next level. It's an incredible responsibility, and we throw ourselves into making each one a success story.

  • You'll be the primary point of contact for each client assigned to you. You'll communicate with them frequently, either answering questions they have for you (this can range from technical stuff to soliciting simple advice), and provide them a weekly report by video — detailing what was done, any commentary you feel relevant, and what's coming up in the next week.
  • You'll be mentored by someone whose role is dedicated to your development. Once you've made it onto our team, our focus is sharpening your skill set to be the best of the best. That means both client relations and technical prowess. The learning never stops, and we support each other like a true team. Sound intense? Maybe. But if this is the field you want to make a career in, this is the environment you want.
  • Your co-workers—which work remotely from around the world—come with a full spectrum of personalities, previous work experiences, and specializations. Really, the only two common factors to everyone are the principle of putting the client first and an eagerness to develop.

The strategic side of things...

Business is hard. Otherwise, we'd all be billionaires. Sure, experienced account managers can often find some easy profit wins for their clients, but taking their business to the next level requires more than clever tweaks and a winning smile. Competitors have that too, and they usually pack a bigger budget.

  • You'll stay on top of industry trends and changes, think ahead on their implications and plan how to turn these factors to each client's advantage. Fortunately, you've got a team of brains to collaborate and geek out with.
  • You'll thoroughly review your oncoming client's account, website, competitors, and industry benchmarks before you even chat with them the first time. By then, you'll no doubt have a list of questions for them and a strong sense of the initial strategy to roll out first.
  • Speaking of rolling, you'll roll with the punches. No strategy is sacred; only the results are. You'll have plan Bs for what happens if a test doesn't work and an understanding of how to gauge that it didn't. You aren't married to methods; you only want to figure out what works for the client.

What Should You Have?

  • You need to have experience with Google Ads; no fewer than 3 years. You've worked with multiple accounts, you've reported to clients, you've set up, managed, and optimized successful sets of campaigns.
  • Communication skills. You can explain things well to clients, speak confidently about the technical and strategic aspects of what you're doing, and always frame things with empathy for the client's perspective. You alleviate confusion—not cause it.
  • Ambition to become one of the best. Sure, it's easy for us to say everything we've said about becoming an elite professional in this space, and it's easy for you to say “yeah, I mean, sure, let's do it.” For all the agencies out there that talk the talk, there's one that's simply the best. That's where we're headed. You're busting at the seams to be one of the best.
  • Humility and honesty. This is actually our first core principle. Being humble means staying open to things outside your wheelhouse, knowing there's so much to test and learn. Being honest is easy for some, not so much for others. No one fakes their way through what we do for clients.
  • Be resourceful. You can have a ton of experience, and be a master communicator, and have ambition up the wazoo, and be wonderfully honest and humble. But you need one more thing in spades: initiative. The challenge of PPC must intrigue and drive you to always be pushing for better, drawing on your team, curiously testing, and constantly mulling new, forward-thinking ideas. You focus on solutions rather than problems.
