Your Mission; to support the Telesales Supervisor with regards to new & existing customers. To grow & increase account penetration by effectively selling Local Pages (LP) products and services.
Do you love talking to people? Are you passionate about both start-ups and established local businesses? Enjoy the thrill of helping to spread the word about valued products & services? Feel like you love to close a deal but don’t want to be branded as an atypical sales person? This might be the role for you!
We are looking for a Sales Representative to join our small but perfectly formed team based in Bristol, to manage and maintain our current customers through exceptional service, whilst also looking for new ones. You’ll work directly with our Telesales Supervisor, and learn the role through a sales training course and by getting hands-on and speaking to our customers.
This is a sales role – we want someone who is able to understand our customers businesses & advertising needs, and then build a strategy that overtime will grow the customer’s use of LP’s services. You will be tasked with managing and maintaining the current customers we have, as well as looking for new.
It is also a creative role. Our working environment provides the opportunity to implement new techniques and make changes. We are looking for someone with innovative ideas, the ability to express them clearly and feel comfortable with feedback.
And finally, you must be able to plan your time, be proactive in managing your own workload and have strong communication skills.
We are not necessarily looking for previous sales experience (although this would be an advantage), we are especially interested in your capabilities, attitude and potential to grow into the role, rather than your experience in the industry, as there will be plenty of support and training.
You must be able to;
- Have exceptional time management, organisational and interpersonal skills
- Ensure pre-call preparation is done for both new & existing customers
- Form plans & actions for each account using responses & marketing information
- Ensure our database is updated at all times
- Following customer plans, ensure we contact as when necessary
- Pass customer feed-back on, so that opportunities are discussed and maximized
- Use our marketing and creative departments effectively, along with sales aids and tools
- Keep yourself up to speed with category market conditions and trends
- Take on-board customers’ comments & requests enabling us to create the best solution
- Demonstrate a return on investment at all times
