You may be the ideal Sales Director if...
You have an entrepreneurial spirit.
Do you thrive in a fast-paced and deadline driven environment? Do you want to work for a small but fast-growing company? Do you want to get in on the ground floor of a business that’s doing big things? Yes, of course you do.
You are creative and ambitious. You get up to speed quickly and begin to generate revenue with minimal direction. You don’t need to be closely managed because no boss has higher expectations than you do for yourself.
You are powered by a “win-win” attitude and a hunger to exceed your goals.
You can sell.
It doesn’t matter what your product is, you are able to motivate people to not just want it but pay for it. And pay big, too.
You are exceptional at developing and maintaining client relationships through your communication skills and campaign management in order to successfully negotiate, structure, and close complex six figure deals.
You know digital sales. Like really know digital sales. You have experience selling display advertising, sponsorships, and custom branded solutions. And you have a history of successfully identifying and closing business deals across a variety of categories.
When your friends describe you they say you know everybody. When your business associates describe you, they say you have a deep network of advertiser relationships with strong prospecting and cold-calling skills and impressive relationship-building abilities.
You understand millennials...women, in particular.
To you, the task of making an audience of 25- to 35-year-old women seem attractive to an advertiser doesn’t even sound like a challenge. You could make that happen before breakfast.
Compensation and Location
We prefer candidates in the NYC, Chicago or LA area so you can easily meet with clients in person. But we’ll also consider remote candidates depending on previous performance.
