This is done through services like article spotlights, ad space, “shout-outs”, sponsorship, and general networking. The salesperson will get to know the customer’s objectives intimately and prescribe the right services to help them reach those objectives.

We are not seeking an overbearing or pushy sales person. We want to provide a genuine service by building a relationship with the customer and assisting in their goals. By being in tune with the customers promotions, events, milestones, the rep can help in a timely fashion.

While there will be sales which will consist of visiting local businesses, making phone calls and sending e-mails, part of the day will be spent working with existing customers who may also provide leads.

Compensation: This is a part-time commission only job. Commissions are 25% for most services sold.
