I'm looking for an independent sales representative to sell sponsorships to events that are actually delivering an ROI!
My hosted buyer events bring together buyers and sellers for two days of meetings, networking, and fun, all a beautiful resort. Buyers love these events because they get to network with a high-quality select group of peers and vendors, at no cost to them or their organization. Vendors love the events because they get to have quality meetings with high-value prospects in a setting that facilitates new business generation. It's a format that no tradeshow could ever match.
Your role will be to sell the sponsorship opportunites to these events. Using a consultative sales process, you'll find and engage decision-makers at companies who sell to our target attendees. Through your skills and talents, you'll develop a relationship that gets a prospect to take that "leap of faith" with us the first time. Once they do, my events have historically generated more than 70% repeat business year over year.
If you'd love the opportunity to sell a product that actually delivers for your customers, and you've launched products in new markets before, this could be a great match.
I'm a 20 year publishing and events industry veteran who has worked both inside large media companies as well as on the outside. This is my third launch company, and each time, I 've found great contract talent to support the launch
and growth of my events. My next launch will occur on or before December 1.
Compensation is a monthly stipend, tiered percentatge of sales, and bonus. The ability to travel and service customers at the events is a bonus, but not necessary.
