Remote Economist College Ambassador (Spring 2021)

Campus Rep
  • Responsibilities

    As an Economist Ambassador, you will be tasked with marketing the brand and educating your peers about the unique global perspective The Economist offers to its readers. By utilizing your personal network and executing targeted outreach to various groups at your university, you will be the primary source of The Economist content within the student body.

    Your primary goal will be to utilize sales and marketing tactics to generate subscription sales of the 12 week discounted subscription - which costs $19-24 for students and $24-29 for adults (depending on the package they select). You have the Spring semester/quarter to complete this, with the possibility to future extension.

    Recent grads and international students are welcome to apply!

    About the Economist:

    The Economist is the leading source of analysis on international business and world affairs. We deliver our information through a range of formats, from newspapers and magazines to conferences and electronic services. What ties us together is the objectivity of our opinion, the originality of our insight and our advocacy of economic and political freedom around the world.

    With everything going on right now from Covid-19 to the social justice movement to the aftermath of the presidential election, we believe the Economist can truly serve as a one stop shop for so many students to become more informed as they navigate these trying times.

    Your Responsibilities:

    • Generate subscription sales using your unique tracking link. There is no cap on the number of sales you can generate.
    • Host classroom and organization presentations to drive subscriptions to The Economist. Update: In the wake of Covid-19's impact on college campuses, the program will be worked mostly via digital avenues - both communicating with individuals, as well as groups.
    • Maintain a weekly goal for subscription sales and come up with creative approaches for doing so.
    • Communicate in a timely manner with the Evolvez team during the duration of the program.

    NOTE: If you know any professors/clubs that EITHER make the Economist/similar publication mandatory OR if you believe you can have certain clubs/professors make the Economist subscription mandatory, apply to this position and then email us letting us know! Really look into this if you aren't sure. In our 8+ semesters working with the Economist, this has been rather successful in the past with students driving 30+ subscriptions.

  • Qualifications
    • Flexible working hours: there is no minimum or maximum number of subscriptions one can generate. There are no set working hours. Ambassadors control their schedule and plan of action each week.
    • Interest in marketing, politics, economics, and sales

    • Greek Life members are preferred, but not required
    • Preferred club memberships/classes (not required): finance, economics, poly sci, business

  • Compensation
    - $12 per subscription sale + $60 bonus for every 5 sales. - There is no cap to the number of sales you can drive - we've consistently had Ambassadors in past semesters who have been able to sell 50+ subscriptions during a semester (which equates to $1,000+ earned.) - Free digital subscription to the Economist magazine during the duration of the program - Highest-performing Ambassadors will be given a personal reference for internships. - Valuable entrepreneurial experience focused on marketing, sales, and communication.
