Affiliate Marketing Manager

Metabolic Living

This is an amazing opportunity for a veteran Affiliate Marketing Manager who would love the challenge of taking over the controls of our existing 8-figure affiliate rocket ship and increasing profits by 30% this year. If you are a super-connector in the health and wellness space and you are the best-in-the-world at tapping into hungry networks of inbound affiliate traffic for big brands, while suppressing all the sleaze balls If you've done it all - negotiating new CPL, CPA and performance-based partnerships, digital marketing, direct response affiliate marketing, niche influencer marketing and ecommerce affiliate marketing - And you're ready to partner with a fully remote company that improves people's lives, then you're a perfect fit.

Hello, my name is Jeff Radich, President CCO of Metabolic Living, and I need your help. We spent over 15 years developing our affiliate network and reputation as a premier publisher in the health and wellness space. We've grown at 59% and 81% the last 2 years and on track for 90%+ growth this year. However, to continue our growth - and deliver on our goal of becoming a billion-dollar multi-channel brand by 2023 - we must take our affiliate marketing to the next level. To that end, I'm re-energizing our department with a senior leader, who is a been-there-done-that affiliate marketing executive, capable of leading our existing efforts and the expansion of our soon-to-launch new e-commerce brand. Our entire team is remote, and we all work from home (and always have), even before COVID.

Who Are We?

Metabolic Living is a self-funded, profitable, rapidly growing multi-channel DTC health and wellness company with 100+ on our team and on pace to hit $60MM in 2020. While others are struggling in this COVID environment, we are fortunate to be thriving as we create exactly what everyone wants. The overall trend towards health and wellness was already a wind in our sails, but COVID lit a match and set our growth on fire, dramatically accelerating things. So, this is your opportunity to help us make a meaningful impact, precisely at the time when the world needs it the most.

What Does Metabolic Living Do?

The most common question we get is - what the heck do you do? Because from the outside in, unless you're a customer, it can be confusing, There's a reason: We built everything organically in reverse, starting with our first nutrition program in 2012, then our first exercise program in 2014 and then launching our full ecosystem of products, including nutraceuticals, functional foods, subscriptions, memberships, 1-on-1 coaching and more. These are all marketed separately under different direct to consumer (DTC) websites and brands in a direct response (DR) manner.

And now we're centralizing everything under our new brand, Metabolic Living, with our flagship website and app launching at the end of this year, transitioning us from purely DR to a multi-channel traditional brand. The website at metabolicliving.com is rapidly evolving and will be replaced with the fully branded e-commerce-driven presence in January 2021.

Normally, companies launch with a brand and then figure out how to make money. We did that in reverse - pinpointing pain points, curating world-class products, validating product-market match, generating cash flow to self-fund our growth, creating our north star (see more below), building out our operational team along the way and then retrofitting the brand on top. Strange path, but here we are. Read our full story here: https://www.linkedin.com/company/metabolic-living/....

In a nutshell, we provide a full ecosystem of products and services that help you quickly optimize your metabolism so you can feel, look and perform your best, every day yet without the yo-yo struggle of traditional approaches. Rather than a one-sized-fits-all approach like Paleo, Vegan, Keto, etc. we empower you with a flexible framework called our Metabolic OSTM that's 100% customized to you. It allows you to get results fast and to sustain those results as you age. Without this flexible framework, those rigid approaches ultimately backfire, leaving you worse off.
