SITE NEWS: FO Seeks Part-Time Business Manager

Football Outsiders is seeking a Business Manager. This will be a part-time position, starting at roughly 10 hours per week. Responsibilities are likely to include the following:

  • Managing advertisements on FootballOutsiders.com. You will need to be fluent in the language of Internet advertising so that you can determine the best advertising partnerships for our website and then manage those relationships.
  • Managing social media campaigns, including building and maintaining our (currently close-to-nonexistent) Facebook page. Applicants should have visible experience using primary social media channels and will understand social media metrics.
  • Promotion of Football Outsiders merchandise, including each year's Football Outsiders Almanac and KUBIAK fantasy football projections, including outreach to media contacts.
  • Planning advertisements to promote Football Outsiders elsewhere.
  • Monitoring readership metrics.
  • Knowledge of copyright and trademark laws a plus.

There may be writing opportunities for the Business Manager, including contributions both to our website and to our book, but this is not a writing position. We're looking for someone who can handle business first and foremost.

Interested? Please send your resume to us at info-at-footballoutsiders.com. If you have questions about the position, please send those via e-mail, not Twitter.

UPDATE: Surprisingly few applications for this, so I wanted to post the job again for those who are interested. Perfect opportunity to get involved with Football Outsiders!
