Idealog's vision is to equip New Zealanders with the inspiration and knowledge to help make New Zealand a more prosperous place. And we're looking for a commercial manager to make Idealog a more prosperous place and continue the momentum the award-winning title has built up over its 11-year history.
Covering technology, innovation, design, marketing, exporting and start-ups – and where these things intersect with culture – Idealog is published in print form three times a year in themed editions (technology, innovation and design) and delivers daily news and commentary through our website, EDMs and social channels. It also runs a number of live events.
Named Business Magazine of the Year for eight years in a row between 2005 and 2013, Idealog is one of the largest circulating business titles in New Zealand.
You will be engaging with audiences and advertisers across print, digital, social and events media. You need to bring to the table an understanding of modern media, the ability to multi-task and good ol' fashioned elbow grease.
Dealing with agencies as well as direct clients will be part of your day-to-day requirements and you will need to be able to deliver big deals across traditional advertising, creative sponsorship and branded content. The ability to think creatively with regard to finding new funding sources would also be valuable.
You will work closely with the publisher, the editorial staff, video production team, marketing and events managers, and commercial managers from other Tangible Media titles. You will report to the publisher.
This is a challenging but rewarding role. Tangible Media offers a stimulating, challenging and creative environment.
If you are interested in joining an innovative, dynamic and independent media company, please send your CV and covering letter to the publisher/editorial director Ben Fahy.
It's interesting how printed newspapers aren't dead either, fill your boots. The thing I wonder about is the measure of marketing effectiveness and I guess that depends on who you're targeting. For example, generally a company share price reflects a ...
A fuck's a fuck
I thought I was reasonably well informed..... sadly not. Great story. Just show that we should rely on the data rather than assumption, intuition, personal habits or fashion as a jumping off point when planning

Who's it for: Fly Buys by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: While Fly Buys points are often a self-gratifying reward, this spot flips that idea on its head to celebrate the feeling you get when giving a gift. New Zealanders (and their dogs apparently) are a pretty generous bunch, which is why Fly Buys has launched the campaign to demonstrate how it can play a part in that giving.
Who's it for: Men's Health Trust by Men's Health Trust
Why we like it: It's often said men struggle to talk about their physical and emotional wellbeing, but Men's Health Trust has managed to get 12 of them to sit down in front of the camera and open up. With the aim of getting men talking in order to reduce the statistic of one Kiwi man dying every three hours from a preventable cause, prominent New Zealanders (including Te Radar, Jack Tame and Selio Solomon) share their health related stories and talk about what it means to be a Kiwi bloke.
Who's it for: McDonald's by DDB
Why we like it: To announce that it's achieved 100 percent free-range egg use across its New Zealand restaurants, McDonald's has called-in the help of comedian Rhys Mathewson and a Robo Chicken. By sending the remote-controlled chicken into one of the farms supplying it with eggs, the spot is able to push McDonald's commitment to free range produce, as well as explain to viewers what the term actually means.
Who's it for: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword by Roadshow Films and Undertow Media
Why we like it: Promoting an international blockbuster by changing up the trailer with a local twist isn't an approach we've seen before, but the use of WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker and UFC fighter Dan Hooker (in a second trailer) is sure to get some attention. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is about Arthur's journey to becoming a legendary fighter and leader, so who better to incorporate into that than Parker, a professional fighter, who speaks about how he overcame his own trials and pain.
