Fund Your World Travels Starting Today – 2 New Job Opportunities post image

Between working on our October DC event, planning for our October Tropical MBA, and working directly with the attendees of the August TMBA (which is wrapping up today), I haven’t made much time to write.

Things have been pretty crazy, which is why we are hiring. If you know anybody who’d like to work for our company, please forward this post to them!

Job Opportunity #1 : “Online Marketing Manager For a 7 Figure e-Commerce Business” 

You might have gathered from pervious job opportunities we’ve posted on this site — we don’t pay a lot and the work ain’t pretty, but you sure as hell will learn a lot.

You’ll have as much responsibility as you’d like to take on. You’ll be in charge of sites like ThePortableBarCompany.com. Eventually, you’ll know how every product works, understand the environment in which it’s used, and know more about these industries and products than any other online marketer. Great marketing isn’t just about keyword research.

To be an effective marketer on our team you’ll be:

  • Developing relationships with online publishers
  • Building strategic linking partners
  • Monitoring our Google rankings on a weekly basis
  • Developing and testing on-site optimizations
  • Working with our California sales team to craft and execute marketing strategies and
  • Interacting directly with my business partner @AnythingIan to get it all done.

Let’s call a spade a spade– this is a job. Our business has more than doubled every year since it’s founding, and we want to keep it that way. We don’t have a lot of time or tolerance for people who aren’t passionate about results.

I am all about entrepreneurship, but if you sign up for this role I’d like you to be able to emotionally commit to spending a few years working for our company. I want you to express your best ideas through the context of our organization and help us to get to our goal of a $4M run rate business by the end of 2013.  If you can be a major player in our success, the opportunities for you will be explosive. It isn’t for everyone, but it’s been our particular experience that the best way to become an entrepreneur is to work for one.

When you are ready to start your own thing, after helping us double or even triple our efforts, you’ll get our 100% support.

When you join our team, you’ll be trained on a broad range of skills including: SEO, PPC, email marketing, WordPress development, and copywriting. You’ll be creating weekly reports about our organization’s online footprint (and it’s performance) every Friday. It will be challenging. 

We prefer that you are Asia based, since we’ll be here for much of 2013 and we want to work directly with you. We’d like you to make it to the October 1st Tropical MBA in Puerto Galera, Philippines. We’d also love to have you at the DC BKK meet-up on October 19th directly after.  We have no required hours, no required locations, but we’d like somebody focused on the work 100% — so if you need some help securing a sweet place somewhere in South East Asia, we’ll do our best to tour you around and help you find the spot.

Here’s how to apply:

  1. We will only accept applications via Youtube video. The quality of your video is not important. You will not get extra points for fancy editing.
  2. Please keep your video under 3 minutes – talk about yourself and why you are uniquely qualified to join us.  Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
  3. In the description of the video, link to other projects you’ve been working on, your personal website, blog, or resume.
  4. Let us know the date you are available to start.
  5. Send us a link to the video– your preferences should be “unlisted and can only be viewed by those with a link”– to “Dan@TropicalMBA.com and copy Ian@TropicalMBA.com” with the subject line format: “[First and Last Name] TMBA Application [Job Opportunity I’m Applying For].”
  6. Application deadline is August 21st, 2012.

Job Opportunity #2 : “Live at a Resort in the Philippines For 4 Months for Free”

So far my good friend Sean has graciously hosted 3 online marketers at his resort— the last guy, John McIntyre, has been here almost a year, has made some insane progress, and has started his own freelancing copywriting business. John also does some of the work here at the Tropical MBA, inlcuding our Tropical MBA Crash Course, and some work for our Tropical MBA in-person events.

This model has been proven, is a great time, and works for a certain kind of individual— namely— one who’s dead set on not having a job. That means you might have a little something going already, perhaps you’ve got a big nut saved up, or maybe you just want to chill out on a Tropical island for a few months. There’s no question— you’ll be treated like a king (or queen!) Included in the deal is a free room at Badladz resort, 3 full meals a day, free laundry service, and free use of the Badladz motor scooters. It’s a good time!

So what’s the catch? Well it’s not all fun and games— you’ll be expected to spend one whole working day serving as the resort’s marketing director per week. You’ll also be expected to help out as the resident ‘expert’ on a day to day basis. This isn’t for people who are counting hours. We are looking for helpful team players willing to be part of the Badladz crew, plus put in a rock solid 8 hours every week doing online marketing for the resort.  Everyone in Puerto Galera will get to know you and you’ll become part of the family here at Badladz.

When Tropical MBA events roll into town, you’ll be expected to notch it up and help out with the event planning and execution. We might even toss you a few bucks for your help— but don’t expect it. Like I said, we are cheap bastards! But here’s the catch— in our little econsphere there are tons of opportunities— including the immediate ones to help market the resort as an event location. In fact, my buddy Sean is such an entrepreneurial lad he’d be more than willing to cut a commission deal with you if you can bring any big groups to his resort.

That’s all going to depend on what kind of entrepreneur you are, but what you can count on is 8 hours, once a week, focused on the basic marketing tasks of the resort:

  • Sales oriented
  • Working with online booking websites and online merchant services
  • General tech support around the resort.
  • Event Marketing, Event Manager
  • Super WordPress literate
  • Functional SEO for websites and YouTube videos (Sean’s videos have over 350,000 views!!!)
  • Willing to help out in a big way for Tropical MBA events (that might even require traveling to Manila to help meet and greet students + help organize workshops and events etc…)

If you apply for this position, you’ll get bonus points if you are availalbe to be here in Puerto Galera by the time our next in-person Tropical MBA event starts— October 1st, 2012. You’ll get trained directly from John McIntyre himself! 

Here’s how to apply:

  1. We will only accept applications via Youtube video. The quality of your video is not important. You will not get extra points for fancy editing.
  2. Please keep your video under 3 minutes.
  3. In the description of the video, link to other projects you’ve been working on, your personal website, blog, or resume.
  4. Let us know the date you are available to start.
  5. Send the video– your preferences should be “unlisted and can only be viewed by those with a link”– to “Dan@TropicalMBA.com” with the subject line format: “[First and Last Name] TMBA Application [Job Opportunity I’m Applying For].”
  6. Application deadline is August 21st, 2012.
