Future House Publishing is seeking marketing interns to bolster our online and in-store book sales using effective marketing methods. Future House Publishing is a publisher of young adult, middle grade, science fiction, and fantasy books with a growing list of authors and roots in Hollywood cinematic storytelling. Launched in 2014, Future House Publishing has propelled books onto the Amazon Overall Bestseller List, sold movie rights, and rapidly built a multi-state distribution model. We are seeking candidates interested in being an integral part of a rapidly expanding book publishing company.
The ideal candidate should love science fiction and fantasy novels and be able to connect with our readers. Interns should be organized and able to track and report results. Be tech savvy: comfortable with email, spreadsheets, WordPress, Dropbox, and Google Docs. Be able to perform other duties as necessary.
Marketing interns will be assigned to various tasks such as building and cultivating existing email lists using social media and proven funneling methods, improving Amazon pages, blog posts, and Facebook pages to increase conversion rates, and using social media ads and posts to inform readers about our books and where to buy them.
Internships run three times a year, for four month periods (January–April, May–August, and September–December). Internship requirements include fifteen hours of remote work each week and twice-weekly meetings during business hours with FHP employees. Our internships can be completed completely remotely. Communication is handled through phone calls, video chats, and online messaging. No in-person meetings are required.
Interns can come from any educational level. No prior experience is necessary, but priority will be given to applicants with Mailerlite, social media marketing, or WordPress experience.
If needed for assignments, Photoshop, InDesign, and other programs will be provided. Personal access to Microsoft Word is required. Interns must have a computer that can run these programs.
Applicants for the Future House Publishing internship program will be asked to list a specific internship on the application, but, if they do not meet the requirements for their first choice, they will be considered for all of our available internship positions during the hiring process unless they indicate otherwise during their interview. Please only apply once.
To apply, fill out the application below. No resume is required at this time.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Applicants will be contacted two months prior to the start of the upcoming internship period (November, March, and July) to begin the hiring process.
Our marketing internship is an unpaid learning experience. If you are already an expert on marketing, you can check our main job page for any part-time openings instead.
