Makrwatch’s vision is to create financial opportunities for hundreds of thousands of content creators around the world, regardless of their location.
Makrwatch’s mission is to evolve influencer marketing to become more transparent, sustainable, and focused on improving people’s lives. We provide a full-service solution to help brands collaborate with YouTube creators to create exciting influencer marketing campaigns.
Account Managers at Makrwatch develop strong professional relationships with creators and clients, continuously striving to achieve exceptional campaign results by keeping a sharp focus on performance metrics. Account Managers guide both clients and creators through the entire process of creating sponsored content; from selecting the best creators to work with, to negotiating the best deals and ensuring content is creative, engaging and, ultimately, converts well.
Effective, clear and concise communication is essential for this role. The ideal candidate should have exceptional interpersonal skills, a high level of empathy, and also be adept at nonverbal communication in order to build strong professional relationships with creators, clients, peers and the wider team. Account Managers are expert listeners and negotiators and are able to balance the perspectives and interests of clients and creators at the same time in order to get the best results for all stakeholders.
Account managers are focused on being a source of deep knowledge and trusted consultation for their clients, always seeking to identify areas for improvement and optimization to ensure the best results from campaigns. In addition to working closely with clients, you will also need to develop strong relationships with YouTube content creators, striving to become a source of education and guidance for them as you help advise and mentor them on the best practices and ethics of developing mutually beneficial collaborations with brands in a new and growing industry. This role also requires you to work with other members of the Makrwatch team, to enhance the customer service experience, grow the company, and improve the product with client feedback.
You will work as part of a small team and challenge yourself to deliver results quickly, solve issues, identify opportunities for growth and optimization, and leverage data insights to help clients grow their business in a fast-paced, accelerating and exciting industry.
Account Managers should be communicative, resourceful, responsible, flexible, adaptable, self-starters, creative problem-solvers, and enthusiastic about taking on big responsibilities. The ideal candidate will have industry experience working in an advertising agency, or in a marketing role with a heavy focus on customer service.
