Our technology personalizes the content so that each reader sees the most interesting and relevant content. We have launched over 35 sites and using our highly scalable platform, we are planning to launch hundreds more.

Come join an experienced and successful group of founders – Clicker, eHarmony, etc. – and their team at this groundbreaking time. We are profitable and capitalized for growth over the next several years. Our billion dollar potential is based on a real business model, not just hope and dreams.

Job Responsibilities

Research may also include telephone and email communication with potential advertisers to have them include their content on our sites/newsletters. This includes presenting the specific site, benefits of working with the site, and details of implementing the relationship. These activities make a critical part of the business because they ultimately lead to launching sites and generating revenue.
  • Social Media Marketing – Our sites have a social media presence. Your role will be to help grow our reach by following and engaging with appropriate individuals, monitoring activity, finding new opportunities to leverage social media, and reporting on effectiveness.  
  • Content Research and Site Setup – As we launch new sites and improve existing sites, you take a central role in pulling together content sources that will make up the site.

  • Webinar Research and Setup – Some of our sites incorporate webinars, and we are looking to expand that number. Your role may include finding and contacting potential webinar presenters, evaluating their fit with the editorial theme of webinar and sponsor interests, managing/ scheduling the calendar for webinars and online events, and preparing presenters by collecting, reviewing, editing, rehearsing and disseminating webinar presentation material. May also include creating and/or editing PowerPoint presentations and acting as the webinar moderator, as well as reporting post-webinar logistics and posting the recorded webinar.
  • Advertising Setup – You will upload ad content into the system, set up ads in emails, test that they are working correctly, send out test emails, and fix any issues.
