Every month we deliver consumer focused advertising programs to over 22 million U.S. households in 500 markets in 27 states.
Job Description
An Account Manager (AM) is key to maintaining the relationship between Mspark and their clients. AMs are the liaison between the client and the creative team to ensure the client's needs and goals are being met on every ad. AMs partner with their Sales Reps in securing client reservations and problem solving. The AM also manages everything from mailing profiles to order details to coordinate the delivery of our products.

Education and Training:
Account Manager’s must have a bachelor's degree and preferred two- three years of experience in the field. The ability to manage a wide variety of tasks at one time is a must with a strong emphasis on leadership. Previous advertising or print experience is a plus.

Typical Day:
Check the status of your client's reservations, place orders as necessary

Contact your sales reps at least once throughout the day to discuss current and upcoming orders and art

Initiate new ads for your clients

Review and present ad proofs to your client for approval

Communicate the client's feedback and/or problems to Sales and discuss the next steps.

The typical day is laid out above, however below are areas that are commonly misconceived regarding this position:

While AMs do partner with and support the sales team, this is not a sales position and is not directly involved in the selling process.

AMs are commonly confused as members of the Graphics team. They do provide input on layout, coupon offers and copy; however AMs do not design the materials.

Their job is to manage the client's account and act as the key contact between the client, Sales Rep and Mspark.
