Casting Outreach Specialist

New York, United States

Seeking an experienced sales/branding/marketing-minded professional to join Backstage as a Casting Outreach Specialist, focused on lead generation, partnership outreach, client relations, and user onboarding.

The Outreach Specialist will be responsible for conducting research to identify hundreds of organizations and individuals every week that would benefit from Backstage's online system for casting talent in films, plays, musicals, commercials, product demo videos, music videos, web series, etc.

The Outreach Specialist would then contact these prospects and conduct brand-awareness campaigns (cold-calling, email outreach, social-networking, growth-hacking, etc.) to explain the benefits of Backstage's state-of-the-art casting services; broker partnerships with relevant organizations (such as film schools and film festivals); and onboard individuals (such as filmmakers, film students, corporate video creators, commercial producers, etc.) onto, so they can utilize Backstage's casting system for finding great actors and performers for their productions.

Your success will be gauged based on the quantity and quality of new users that you bring onto the site's casting system, and the number and quality of projects they end up casting.
