Lurn, Inc.

Rockville, MD

Position:        Publisher

Department:       Marketing

Location:        Rockville, MD 

 

Summary:


Do you get excited about building funnels, optimizing them and scaling them? Oh, and getting a chance to scale your compensation as you grow your lines of business!

Well, read on…

You will build and optimize funnels that market courses from our amazing experts. You will manage the schedule, timelines, operations and build the entire funnel from scratch to finish. The Publisher works with every other department in the company and makes sure everyone in marketing is on schedule.

Think “Air Traffic Control.† You make sure your revenue goals are met and that your product lines and funnels grow month over month. 

Being organized, timely and operational is a must, you need to help get us at least 3 months ahead on our publishing schedule. 

The good news? You’ll get to directly help grow our revenue and own your own lines of business.  To keep reading, the idea of launching new funnels and products should excite you... 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We’ll start by introducing ourselves. We’re Lurn – The Transformational Home for Entrepreneurs. Our company is pioneering how Entrepreneurs learn and connect with each other (all over the World). Being an Entrepreneur can be a very lonely business – well, not for long. 

We’ve built a Publishing platform that has 100 courses on it and will soon allow for Entrepreneurs to connect, communicate and network with each other. 

In 2020, our business has grown 150%. We’ve more than doubled our team size (yes, COVID ain’t got nothing on us). Right now, we’re focused on getting the right leadership in place for the next burst of growth in 2021.

The Lurn.com platform already has 500,000 members and is rapidly growing to 10 million. In 2020, we expanded our Engineering team from six to a team of 25. Long story short, we’re on the brink of major growth in 2021, we’ve already passed our tipping point. 

The only reason Lurn is growing the way we are is because of our amazing team. You won’t find a talented, hard-working and family-oriented team culture like ours anywhere in this industry. And now, we’re looking for that “special someone†to help contribute to the revenue growth on our Publishing team.

That’s where you come in, maybe – let’s see.

Does This Sound Like You?

We need a Publisher to help scale our revenue. How? By building and growing out successful funnels and product lines.  We already have many great products and even more coming.  These products need funnels built, optimized and they need to be multiplied.

We need a go-getter Publisher who will take charge of their own products and keep them on schedule.

Low ticket. Mid ticket. High ticket. Propose a plan, organize it and then execute. The more profitable funnel we can send to our ads team, the better. 

  • You like to attack new projects & initiatives with minimal information – you prefer figuring things out yourself.
  • You have a super-power in communicating and delegating. You can keep a variety of teams informed and working together incredibly efficiently.
  • You’ve built more sales funnels than you can remember and you love it…
  • You’re hungry to grow – not just the company, but your own career.

Seriously – only keep reading if the above sounds like you. 

 

What Makes Lurn Unique & Ready To Explode in Growth?

 

To start, we’re in the EduTech industry which is one of the fastest growing industries in the World right now specialized only in Entrepreneurship Education. Actually, not just education – but our Platform allows for Entrepreneurs to connect and network with each other. 

At our CORE, we’re a digital publishing company. This means we create courses and publish top-rated experts. We’re already working with World-Renown Experts like Robert Kiyosaki, Daymond John and many more that are about to be signed. After we publish the course, we build awesome funnels and spread the courses to the world using our internal Email list and also paid advertising. 

No Corporate Mindset - We’re a Start-up…

 

Listen, if your idea of being a Publisher involves sitting back, delegating all your tasks and just being “strategic†all day, I’m sorry – this gig just isn’t for you. We’re not looking for any corporate mentality at all.

We’re a startup and always will be. 

If you’re not ready to roll up your sleeves and join in the fun, then this is not the right gig for you. 

 

So, Here’s What We ARE Looking For…

 

The following is pretty direct and non-negotiable. Our Publisher requires these:

  • Funnel Strategist – You should understand sales funnels, webinars, evergreen funnels, launches, video sales letters, emails, autoresponders and copywriting – if any of these words are not a regular part of your day then this might not be the right gig for you.
  • Funnel Optimizer – Just because a funnel doesn’t work on the first try should not discourage you but rather challenge you. We have many funnels that need to be optimized and sent to our advertising team. Let’s diversify the revenue, let’s have as many “ad buyable†funnels as possible. Tweaks. Optimization. Trying again. More important words in this job.
  • Organized and systemized – Manage everyone involved in the project and get the project a minimum of 3 months ahead.  Not just projects, but projections, revenue and new marketing initiatives. Get the project organized and running like a perfectly timed train.
  • Data Driven Decision Making – We’ll be direct, our marketing team doesn’t believe in feelings and emotions for decisions. We look at the data and only the data. You must be someone who gets a high out of doing data analysis for your decisions.
  • Copywriter At Heart – Our business thrives from good copywriting. You should have experience copywriting that if you needed to own a campaign and write it, you could readily dive right in just a little guidance.
  • Experience With Media & Ad Buying – 70% of our revenue comes from our media buying, we’re close to investing $1 Million a month in advertising. It’s imperative that you have worked with advertising teams in the past and at least understand the conversations.
  • Projector & Predictor – We need you to understand your funnels and goals and be able to predict their revenue moving forward.
  • Communicator – We move fast, sometimes too fast for the rest of the company. Our other teams like Operations, Tech and Sales need to be kept well-informed. Whoever fills this position, you must be amazing at keeping cross-department and inner-department communication pristine.

Yes, it’s a little intense, but that should excite you…

Listen, we’re growing incredibly fast. Our marketing team right now is very small compared to the immense potential we have. Whoever fills this Publisher position is going to be CENTRAL in our ability to grow and achieve 100% revenue growth quickly.

Of course with all this growth comes amazing growth opportunities for you as well. So, in the end, that kind of intensity and potential needs to excite you, we understand that this kind of pace isn’t ideal for everyone and that’s okay. 

Alright, let’s talk about our Marketing Department… 

Our marketing department has THREE key functions. 

  1. Copywriting & Conversion – We are constantly creating sales material whether it be Emails, sales webinars or written sales pages. Our revenue depends on the ability for these pages to convert.  And considering we launch so many products, we’re always copywriting.
  2. Lead Generation – We do a ton of advertising and lead generation. We spend $1 Million a month on advertising to get people to register for our Webinars or opt-in for our Free reports. Then, we slowly convert them using our…
  3. Funnel Building – We build a lot of funnels in this company. Webinar funnels, book funnels, free report funnels, affiliate funnels, giveaway funnels – you name it. This is where we work together with our design department, our visual team and anyone else needed. 

Our marketing team has a design team, A/V visual team, copywriting team, media buying team and soon a publishing team. 

You’ll also have weekly interface with the other departments in the company such as operations and tech. 

Alright, So, How Do You Become a Super Star In This Position?

 

You do the following and we’ll hoist you on our shoulders and parade you around…

  • Consistently launch new funnels that are successful and moved to our ad buying team for scaling.
  • Have amazing communication and management in the Marketing team and keep your projects on schedule.
  • Streamline the communication between Marketing and other departments…
  • Create at least three funnels that are scaling with the ad buying team.
  • The biggest goal:  Participate in scaling our revenue to $5 Million a month.

 

You do the above and you’re going to have HERO status at Lurn. 

Still with us? Excellent.

I’ll summarize below and if you’re still excited, please apply to speak to us right away. Time is money and we gotta move! 

In Summary – This Is Who You Need To Be:

  • Have worked at a start-up previously in a fast paced environment
  • Scrappy thought-leader with a strong sense of ownership for your projects…
  • Funnel master – you need to love building funnels, copywriting and creating campaigns…
  • Data-driven and analytical with a creative streak and a strong attention to detail (aka data-driven marketing mindset )
  • Organized & Systems driven – you need to rally people to work together and get a system in place.
  • Goal-oriented with no fear of lead commits because you WANT to win.
  • Superb communicator – You must keep all team members involved in your project working together and get the timelines at least 3 months ahead… 
  • Self-starter who understands this role requires strong execution and hands on experience. 
  • SCALE revenue – help project it, track it, make pivots if needed – but no matter what happens, contribute to the growth of revenue to $5 Million a month. 

 

Must haves: 

  • Proven background in B2C direct response marketing - digital publishing, funnels, copywriting, digital marketing, list management, data tracking, backend marketing, lead generation, etc…
  • Proven experience in a B2C direct response marketing

 

Alright, phew, you’ve made it this far and we didn’t scare you away! So, now let’s talk about what’s in it for you and what Lurn will do for you…

First of all, we have an amazing award-winning culture. We work like a family and we empower everyone to manage their jobs, tasks and teams in their own way. No micro-management here. We encourage you to take chances and grow fast. 

We are a Washington Business Journal Best Places to Work company and have won the following Comparably Workplace Awards:

The Publishing Tools team is a group of full-stack engineers whose work is used every day by reporters and editors who write and plan stories for The Washington Post. This team owns the publishing tools that produce The Post's daily report, and we'll be working this summer to add ambitious features to our homegrown content management system to give our newsroom superpowers.

We do most of our backend work in Node and Java. Our frontends are React, some Angular, and a healthy amount of vanilla JS. We deploy our applications to Amazon Web Services. If you work with tools like these, you'll likely fit in with us technologically. If you haven't worked with all of these tools yet, that's okay! None of them is a requirement for applying.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed. 

The innovation doesn’t end in the Newsroom – dozens of teams power The Washington Post.  We are now hiring the next innovator – how will you Impact Tomorrow?
