As we hope readers have noticed, Berkeleyside continues to grow and develop. We’re now looking for an additional advertising sales executive to join our small team, to help build Berkeleyside’s business.
Advertising is the main source of Berkeleyside’s revenues. As a sales executive for Berkeleyside, you’ll play your part in forging a future for independent, local, online news.
You’ll work directly with our ad director, Wendy Cohen, building relationships with local merchants, coming up with new revenue ideas, and collaborating as an integral member of the Berkeleyside team.
The job is ideal for someone who is outgoing and enjoys building relationships with local business owners. You will need to generate leads and expand your client base through sourcing, cold calling and closing new clients. In addition, you will be involved in ensuring the clients’ artwork is delivered on time and to the right specifications.
Experience in sales, particularly digital sales, is helpful, but not required. What is required is energy and persistence. If interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume or LinkedIn page.
