Creative Director

Posted last month

We’re looking for a creative director to join our ambitious growth-oriented eCOMM DTC brand building gummy supplement team!

About Us:
Crushvertise is an agency that works ONLY on our own internal ecommerce brands. We aren’t afraid to spend advertising on concepts that work, and we have capital to test and build momentum.

We’re a lean but fast-growing team and we need a technical creative director to help us achieve our CTR, ROAS goals on paid traffic channels for new customer acquisition and existing continuity.

About the Role:
In this role, you will start by helping to create new marketing angles and frameworks top of funnel (ToF) largely for Facebook, Instagram and TikTok for our newest exciting brands. We also run paid campaigns on X, Google and Klayvio, but your initial focus will be on new customer top of funnel (ToF) acquisition on Facebook and Instagram.

You will be our 1st official creative director (CD). But you will not be alone. You will be supported and working closely with the CEO, a sharp mediabuyer, 2 talented full-time video editors, motions and statics designer, all in-house.

You will also be given and trained on our tools to spy on competitive creatives, trends, PipiAds, TikTok and Meta ads libraries, app.foreplay boards. Though we assume you have your own methods for keeping up with trends.

Due to the youth of our brands and nature of being self-funded we are in a traction phase looking to get profitable quickly. As a result we are focused on high ROI converting creative concepts. You will have insights and logins to see 3rd party attribution (Adbeacon) and MotionApp to pull detailed creative reports and metrics. You will have insights into AOVs and landing page EPCs, ad CTRs, scroll-stop, video view durations, ROAS, and conversion strength etc.

In addition you will have access to full-time devs, with CRO support and the technical help to implement, create and modify new landing pages, carts, checkouts, and create new angles.

We have 2 brands, they are both young and fighting to find market fit. One started out strong with very strong metrics, the other is creeping into stability in terms of breaking even with recurring customer purchases.

We are teetering between growth and traction with both brands, meaning we are aiming to hit aggressive ROAS targets that allow us to make back our advertising budgets and earn profits to cover and grow our internal teams.
