POSITION: Account Executive
DUTIES: It’s not just another sales job. We offer unusually higher commission-driven opportunities – significant local and regional reach, uncapped earning potential. As we continue to build our on-air and online brands, we need more experienced and hungry people. You’ll be selling local advertising for our innovative radio stations and digital platforms, working with area businesses to help them grow using our six local radio brands through eight great local radio signals and hyperlocal news website. Using modern sales support systems, you’ll be responsible for sales order entry, coordination of ad production, accurate sales forecasting, timely reporting, and achievement of sales goals.
QUALIFICATIONS: The ideal candidate should have a competitive personality and a winning attitude; be a quick learner and a natural problem-solver; enjoy relationship-building and a fast pace; have excellent prospecting skills; project a professional appearance and demeanor; be an organized self-starter able to work effectively without direct supervision; and be excited about an opportunity to work for a company that’s investing big time in making a difference. Strong written and verbal communications skills are critical, and a college degree is preferred but not mandatory. Sales or customer service experience is required; media ad sales experience is a plus.
LOCATIONS: Key positions are based in the Sylacauga-Childersburg and Lake Martin-Alexander City areas with responsibilities extending into Birmingham, Auburn, and Montgomery.
