Specter, an online magazine of literature and art, is now accepting applications for a Social Media Editor. A senior editorial position, the Social Media Editor will be responsible for expanding Specter’s online reach and readership, evangelizing the Specter “brand”, and managing Specter’s social media presence via Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.
This is an unpaid position (Specter is an all-volunteer publication). The candidate must be able to meet the following requirements:
Specter Fan: hence, “evangelizing” the brand, whether you’ve read Specter since 2011 or recently found us online.
Social Media Fan/Expert: Demonstrated experience with Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr is required.
Loves Data: Experience with Google Analytics (site visits, unique visitors, engagement) and can interpret data to create action plans to expand readership and reach.
Strategist: How can each platform be best used for Specter? How do other literary organizations use social media? And in what ways can Specter use social media more effectively to improve readership and engage relevant conversations?
Plugged in: The ideal candidate is familiar with the indie/online literary scene as writer, editor, and/or reader. Candidate will look for advertising/cross-promotional opportunities for Specter.
Empire State of Mind: Though Specter is an online publication, we consider ourselves “Brooklyn-based”(because it’s where our editor in chief resides). So it’s not required to live in Brooklyn or NYC in general, but…it’ll definitely be a plus if you do.
Loves Video Chat: Must be able to attend our very infrequent staff meetings via Skype or Google Hangouts.
