Online Marketing and PR Jobs @ TopRank

What a year 2007 ended up to be for TopRank and 2008 has already started with a bang. We’ve been fortunate to work with small companies like Smart-Kit and Web Awards as well as some of the largest companies in the world including NWA, HP and McKesson. New clients for 2008 already include PRWeb, Radian6 and SPS Commerce.

Along with the tremendous growth we’ve experienced, TopRank has several positions open. Since Online Marketing Blog has such a talented group of readers, we’re curious if some of those readers have the right stuff or perhaps know someone with the right stuff to join our energetic, growing marketing company based in Minnesota. The open positions include:

PR Superstar [Position Filled]
Do you have what it takes to be a PR Superstar? We’re looking for a talented PR professional who can effectively sell our client’s stories to top influencers offline as well as online. Our PR Superstars thrive on picking up the phone and conducting compelling media pitching to targeted journalists as much as they excel at developing relationships with influential bloggers and social networks.

M&O-TopRank PR Superstars work hard to clearly identify newsworthy nuggets that our clients otherwise dismiss as day to day “oh well’s”. They see the diamonds in the dirt and turn them into news stories their competitors envy! Whether a tenured media relations guru or 2-4 years out of University, a M&O PR Superstar possesses a strong mix of great organizational skills along with energy, creativity and a passion for achieving results.

No stranger to acronyms like “SEO”, “SERP” and certainly “ROTFLMAO” this search engine and social networking enthusiast will navigate curiously named Web 2.0 sites like Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Del.icio.us, Digg and StumbleUpon promoting a variety of client projects.

As a instrumental part of our Online Promotions Team, the Online Marketing Specialist will creatively concept and implement web content and social media promotions as well as a variety of link building tactics for our clients. Measuring results with our social media reporting tools as well as web analytics to the Account Teams is all part of the magic provided on a daily basis by the TopRank OMS.

Online Marketing Developer
Working both with Misukanis & Odden PR as well as TopRank, the Online Marketing Developer is a creatively technical and talented individual that will help support our client web development, online lead generation and email marketing efforts. Excellent organization, process, design and development skills are required. HTML, PHP, MySQL and CSS are the languages you speak but you’ll also do quite well in office English. JavaScript and Ajax are also handy.

Experience working with WordPress and Movable Type blogging platforms along with a wide variety of plugins and customization features will speak volumes.
