Sales Representative(s) Wanted

Sources, the directory of contacts for the news media has openings for commission-based sales representatives.

You will be contacting decision-makers in non-profit associations, business, and government, representing the leading directory service forganizations seeking publicity and media coverage.

This is not a ‘hard sell’. You will be talking to people who want to increase public awareness of their cause, their organization, or their business, to encourage them to consider using Sources to help them earn more media attention. Media coverage is probably the most valuable kind of publicity there is. Your job will be to explain how Sources can lead the media to call them, thereby complementing and magnifying their other efforts to publicize themselves. You will be helped in this by being able to point to a long list of existing satisfied clients who already use Sources to do exactly that.

This job does not require glib sales technique. It requires individuals who are prepared to work hard and make calls, who have a good working knowledge of current events, and who are good communicators. Good communication skills in this context mean listening as much as persuading: a successful call is typically one in which you spend more time listening than talking.

The most successful individuals in representing Sources have often been people who do not have a sales background. Experience in working with advocacy organizations, in political campaigns, in public relations, or in research, can be just as valuable.
