We are currently recruiting for a Media Sales Executive on our classified advertising team working with a range of media titles that include EDP, Evening News, Norfolk Magazine, LS24, Let’s Talk and our Advertiser & Times series – just some of the 13 strong local brands that you have the opportunity to promote in this fantastic opening.
We have an opportunity for a telephone-based sales role that will see you selling print and digital advertising campaigns and solutions to local businesses. As well as managing existing customers you will also win new clients, inspiring them with genuine cost effective ideas and solutions tailor-made for them.
You will have great listening and questioning skills to fully understanding your clients’ needs and offer the right multi-platform campaigns; print, digital display advertising, programmatic advertising, mobile websites, apps, content marketing, e-newsletters and social media.
You will need good attention to detail to upload adverts onto our system, chase copy and approvals from your clients and ensure that the advert is perfect in terms of date, time, content, size, colour and publication. There are several special publications produced throughout the year which give advertisers added opportunity to reach their target audience and you will also sell these into your designated area.
We are looking for a dynamic individual who is determined to achieve, learn and grow their client base. Through this approach you will win clients and customers, build them great campaigns and ensure that Archant becomes an integral part of their advertising and marketing solutions.
