About Hot Dish Advertising:

Since naming ourselves after the popular Minnesota staple, hotdish, we’ve served up the right blend of savvy strategy, smart creative, and unprecedented results for our franchise brands. We would not have become authorities on franchise development marketing if we weren’t willing to take risks, be resilient, and do what we love. That’s the core of our culture. We care about the work we do, the way we do it, and who we do it for.

Our Values:

  • Passionate about our clients, our team and the work we produce.
  • Curious to learn more, improve skills, use new programs, open to change and test new creative solutions to help our clients achieve their goals.
  • Smarty Pants to challenge what has been done before and prove out a better solution that delivers results.
  • Playing to win by willing to hustle and politely persist to meet or exceed our goals.
  • Respectful of everyone. Open minded to the needs of others and work to help improve along the way. Teaching and showing without judgment.
  • Fun and thrive off partnering with other high-energy team members and clients!

Job Overview:

  • Our Account Coordinators (ACs) are real go getters and provide overall account support for marketing and media strategy, production of campaigns and the reporting of those campaigns to help meet our client objectives.
  • As needed or instructed, ACs set up all calls, meetings, and calendar invitations to support the workflow of the projects.
  • Help manage project accuracy by reviewing deliverables and comparing it to the Creative Brief to ensure all mandatories are met.
  • ACs partner with their Account lead (typically an Account Director) on all invoices and client paperwork to ensure insertion orders (IOs), media flowcharts and project estimates are completed for every project.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Support account, creative and media teams by coordinating materials and information for clients and projects by:
    • Organizing and saving all client assets and project approvals on the server in their correct client folder.
    • Writing Service Reports that detail discussion notes and next steps for all internal meetings, client status calls and client presentations.
    • Following up either via email or phone call on any outstanding client requests (project feedback, project approvals, asset requests, etc), to include:
      • Assisting project management and digital media specialist on troubleshooting any tracking issues that may occur on a client website.
      • Assist with starting creative briefs or other job tickets as needed.
      • Write social media post copy for clients as needed for the copywriter and/or Account Director to review and approve.

    • Conducting QA testing for campaign elements such as website development, emails or other digital ad projects.
  • Lead all administrative efforts on accounts by:
