BookNet Canada is a non-profit organization that develops technology, standards, and education to serve the Canadian book industry. BNC services and research help companies promote and sell books, streamline workflows, and analyze and adapt to a rapidly changing market.

Marketing Associate Position Description:

Your main role is to communicate BookNet’s offerings and events to current and potential clients, and to enhance BookNet’s authority as a thought leader in the Canadian book industry. You’ll be responsible for maintaining the company social media strategy and managing all social media accounts and external communication channels. This includes Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, our blog, and BookNet’s weekly eNews newsletter. You’ll refine content strategies for all of these channels, and write or solicit content as needed.

Action is meaningless without analytics, so you’ll also be responsible for tracking and reporting on various metrics, both for your own efforts (social media channels) and for the Marketing department (website stats, event-related metrics, etc.).

Finally, you’ll be reporting to the Marketing & Communications Manager and assisting with a variety of general duties as needed (editing, light design work, proofreading, creating video tutorials, some administrative tasks, preparing for and working at our annual Tech Forum conference, etc.).
