Austin Area Job Opening – PPC Guru Needed

OK, the company I work for, Frames Direct, is expanding their online department and has this opening for Austin area residents (sorry, no telecommuting at this time. Only Austin residents will be considered). Posted 6/7/2007

Pay Per Click Guru

FramesDirect.com, the online leader in eyewear, seeks a successful individual to join our Search Services team as the Pay Per Click Marketing (PPC) guru for our new south Austin location. This is a challenging and exciting opportunity for a self-starter with a great attention to detail. This is NOT an SEO position.

The PPC Guru will be responsible for developing and implementing Pay Per Click efforts with the objective of bringing qualified visitors to and driving conversions on our optical websites – eyewear, binoculars and goggles.

A qualified candidate will have the ability to create, monitor and grow multiple PPC campaigns across multiple PPC properties while also possessing the ability to pursue other limited amounts of online advertising opportunities and site traffic initiatives. You must have a passion for PPC marketing and possess a creative marketing personality with the ability to create incremental sales. A talented individual is needed to expand our online PPC efforts while increasing ROI. This position is responsible for managing our PPC campaigns 24/7/365.


• Manage all PPC campaigns across all PPC platforms (Google, Yahoo!, MSN, shopping sites, etc.)

• Achieve a targeted ROI for all ad spends on a daily basis

• Detail-oriented organizational skills and above-average written and communication skills

• Work out of our south Austin location (near Driftwood)

This is a Pay-Per-Click specialist position, not SEO.
