Affiliate Marketing Strategist

Marketing Department | Omaha, NE

Join the team and help us build something incredible!

Flywheel’s on the hunt for an Affiliate Marketing Strategist to foster impactful community partnerships and dramatically expand revenue opportunities for our affiliate/referral program! This person will seek out and evaluate new partnership opportunities with like-minded organizations, awe-inspiring agencies, and powerful community leaders, all while managing and growing our current list of over 6,000+ relationships. You’ll play a pivotal role in helping us earn new revenue, drive engagement and traffic to our sites, and increase exposure and awareness for Flywheel’s brilliant brand!

You’ll be the central point of contact for our referral/affiliate program and will be managing all aspects of this massive marketing avenue, with a primary focus on curating relationships and encouraging growth for high-performing affiliates. Other work will include outreach to relevant and high-potential partners, onboarding new partners, creating resources, and strategizing creative initiatives and campaigns (whether that’s targeted tweets or custom offers). You’ll serve as a growth guide for our partners, small and large!

This role is very data-driven and requires a self-starter who can drive results quickly, and doesn’t mind rolling up their sleeves to and dialing a few dozen numbers to do so. You’ll be expected to contribute new ideas and discover opportunities to assist with our growth. You will also work closely with the rest of our marketing team, designers, developers, and account executives to further develop and scale our global referral program!
