There comes a point in time where you finally realize (this took 3+ yrs of working 18hr days for me) that you cannot be everywhere at once. With that said, I do a good job keeping up with Twitter and Facebook and all the other daily requirements, but I think it is time to bring someone on who can monitor all the bbq forums and be our eyes, ears and spokesperson in that realm. I just do not have the time to be in all the forums and be an active participant there and I think that is hurting the company a little bit.
I think we have a good reputation as a company overall from a product stand point. A lot of that has come just from our die hard fans stoking the fires for us in the forums. What I am looking for is someone who is very familiar with our entire product line (or someone who can become familiar quickly), who understands the bbq community, is an insider already and respected, this person should probably not be a bigger named blogger or even apart of a team we already sponsor. I prefer this person to have have at least competed in a couple of competitions or be a certified bbq judge. They can use our products out on the competition trail but their deal for compensation would be quite a bit different than our current sponsored teams. I would also really like for this person to be versed in various different types of bbq pits. From wood/coal fired to kamado style to pellet cookers, there needs to be the ability to go to any forum talk about the topics there and answer questions about the Draper’s BBQ line and how they work with each cooking application.
What would be required of you is daily monitoring of at least 10 different bbq and cooking related forums. Posting where and when the opportunity presents itself. Never crossing the line into spamming, that is not the intent at all. Maintaining a profile that is consistent with the values that we have built Draper’s BBQ on. You would get first access and even be involved in the testing phase of all new products. Scouting and finding more retail outlets for Draper’s BBQ products. These outlets can be local to you or on the internet. This job is marketing, testing and cooking all in one. It will be imperative that you treat this like you are working yourself into an actual job, because frankly you may well be.
I understand this is a very odd mix of attributes I am looking for. That is ok, there is someone out there who is built for this job and I cant find them until I start looking.
If you are interested please send your information, qualifications and reason’s why you should be picked to: email@example.com Your entry will be reviewed by myself and the company Director’s and we will make a decision and compensation will be discussed at that point.
