Digital Marketing Specialist


Now located in Milwaukee's historic Walker's Point, 800-CEO-READ evolved from the Harry W. Schwartz Bookshops and is now a bulk book e-commerce retailer of books focused on custom sales, distribution and logistical services. Simply put, we are experts on books—whether it's knowledge of the history and current trends in business literature, helping nonfiction authors of every ilk navigate book sales and the speaking circuit, customizing books for a specific audience or client, or sharing our intimate and hard-earned knowledge of how to physically move books around the country and around the world on a specific deadline.

Position Details

Digital Marketing Specialist
Southeast Wisconsin
Milwaukee, WI

800-CEO-READ, a bulk book e-commerce retailer in Milwaukee, WI, seeks an entry-level, full-time Digital Marketing Specialist to join our marketing team. This person will work predominantly online to get the word out about our company, the books we sell, and the activities of the larger publishing world.

We are currently building a new website with an outside firm, and are looking for someone to get in on the ground floor of that project so that we’re not only launching it together, but thinking holistically and strategically about its long-term maximization and support. This position will add to our digital marketing skill set and we are willing to mold duties and responsibilities for the right candidate who wants to work in a highly collaborative, self-driven culture.

Some of the specific skills or experience we’d prefer for you to have include: SEO, analytics and reporting, A/B testing, PPC advertising, social media and newsletter, CRM maintenance and lead generation, content creation, and copyediting. 

Though we do much of our work online, we remain a people-focused company, and do much of our best work in the tactile, analog world—talking to authors, publishers, and customers, and mining the depths of books. We hope to find someone as comfortable working in a book as they are working in the cloud—as comfortable turning pages as pressing buttons. So, if you have worked in marketing, have a drive to learn more, a willingness to try, and a good sense of humor, we want to hear from you.


  • Digital and/or social media marketing work experience. 
  • Proficiency with G Suite and Microsoft Office. 
  • Great storytelling and written communication skills. 
  • Love of books!


  • Additional software proficiency: Adobe Creative Suite, Episerver, Copper, Mailchimp, Buffer, or related.

Salary (range $34,000 to $36,000) is commensurate with experience.

Benefits include: 80% of healthcare policy coverage, disability coverage, 401k, and a generous time off policy.

Hours are 8:30-5:00, M-F.

800-CEO-READ values curious, innovative thinkers who thrive in a relaxed yet high-performing work environment, and is a proud and enthusiastic equal opportunity employer.
