About the Job

Want to earn more money and join a growing company? Our community media company seeks high achievers to sell multimedia advertising and help our clients grow their businesses. Excellent earnings potential for a motivated candidate who understands prospecting and consultative selling. Successful sales professionals will have opportunities to advance into management roles. Our product portfolio includes daily and non-daily newspapers, magazines and related digital platforms.
Successful candidates will possess the following characteristics:

1. Energetic, optimistic self-starter
2. Excellent verbal communication skills and good written communication skills
3. Technologically proficient, including in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat and browser-based applications
4. Basic knowledge of -- or the ability to quickly understand -- retail and service businesses (the ability to meet with a business owner or decision-maker, understand the business and its marketing needs, and recommend a marketing program)

Media sales experience isn't necessary. General sales experience is helpful but not essential if one meets the criteria above. The work is fast-paced and requires one to hustle for business in a very competitive marketplace.
Compensation is a mix of base, commission and bonuses. Pay range is from $35,000 annually with acceptable performance to $60,000 annually with outstanding performance. Top performers will have the potential to advance to management responsibilities and higher compensation. We offer a full benefits package, including health insurance, paid vacation, mileage reimbursement, company-funded retirement plan, 401(k), FSA and complimentary disability and life insurance.
The basic workweek is 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, though self-starters will choose to work extra to maximize their earnings through increased sales.
