Immediately hiring awesome AE's who are looking for great pay, less hours, flexibility, always get paid for vacation, maternity and family leave, and want to work from home!
Enjoy doing what you love and do best with less hours, less meetings, less reporting and the flexibility of working from home. Kill Your Competition (r) is continuing to grow with clients from California, Colorado, Florida and Pennsylvania. We are looking for an experienced AE, Account Executive, Account Manager, Media Consultant or media sales person who excels in relationship building, communication and has an understanding of multiple types of media with a strong focus on on-air and online marketing. This position removes all fulfillment, ad ops, AR, etc. from your desk and lets you do your actual job.
If you wanted to consider working for us, below you will find our more about our company culture, the job, compensations, benefits and how we will equip you.
You are the face of the relationship with clients. Your job as a sales person is literally to be focused on sales, building relationships and giving monthly reports to clients. You will never have to produce reports, sales collateral, input orders, handle makegoods, collect payments, etc. You will be asked to prospect with lists we give you and your own efforts as well as respond to leads we receive. If there is an issue or an opportunity, communicate it with the Marketing Director so we can address it quickly. You'll meet with clients locally or via phone and screen share if out of market once a month, and be required to respond to clients within one business day.
Equipped for Success:
You'll be equipped with a phone extension, laptop, business cards, email, reasonable training in sales, digital, TV and research as needed and at your request, training by Comscore on TV, access to Comscore, training by Waze and Google, presentation collateral, written contracts for all your clients, and even AR support - we do all your collections, invoicing and billing.
Vacation, Sick Days, Maternity and Family Medical Leave
You will always be paid your full commission and are never penalized for taking time for vacation, being sick or having sick kids, growing your family or needing special leave to heal or take care of a loved one for up to 6 months. Those who need extra grace such as caring for a terminally ill family member, will still receive 75% of your normal commission for an additional 18 months. You can take up to 1 full week of vacation per month! That is 12 weeks of paid vacation a year!
When with a client you are with a client, you can be as dressed up or down as you want, so long as you look reasonably professional or at the level of profession they are expecting. Jeans with a nice business shirt are fine, but keep in mind the type of person you are meeting with.
You can set your own schedule. We do not have set hours or days. We do ask that you don't send clients an email from 5pm to 9am. Draft it all you want, but use the tools to schedule it for your client's normal business hours. If you are going on vacation, we ask that you kindly give us a 1-2 week notice.
We believe in thanking clients with appropriate gifts. The larger their spend, the larger we accrue for in gifts. If you have an advertising client who spends $50,000 or more a month, they automatically qualify for incentive travel including out of country. We want to always make sure our clients feel as valued as our team!
We Do Not Impose a Non-Compete
Everyone should have the right to work in any place of their choosing, but the clients belong to Kill Your Competition (r). We do ask for 2 weeks notice and allow us to inform the clients that this may impact. We do not believe in threatening great employees with a Non Compete.
We Do Not Make You Keep Crappy Clients
As service providers, we do not discriminate offering our services to any person based on race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status such as disability, age, marital and family status, sexual orientation and gender identity, health status, place of residence, economic and social situation.
However... if your client pays consistently late or not as agreed, has industry ties to local, regional, federal and or internationally illegal services and/or trafficking and/or endangerment to the safety and welfare of children or women, is threatening or sexually inappropriate with you, we will ALWAYS stand by our Right of Refusal and Termination of Service.
This is not a media outlet where we beg clients to pay us at 120 days, reward bad client behavior and take advantage of our AE's. We want mutually respectful and fruitful relationships between us and our clients.
We are Drug Free
If you do illegal drugs or cannot be sober on the job, this is not the job for you. We do drug testing before hiring and we do random drug tests.
Paychecks are processed on the 1st and 15th of each month. Commissions are processed for pay periods 7 days before the pay period of the 1st and the 15th. You will get a clear explanation of all commissions, and will be paid on the following pay period after the payment has cleared.
There is a $500 Bonus for Every New Advertising Client You Close Who Starts Advertising with Us and Spends at least $10,000/mo on TV or Digital.
Commissions range from 10% to 20% for advertising and web development.
Agencies who subcontract us may have a reduced commission rate of 4%.
If you currently have accounts that you can bring on at your hiring period, have the legal right to work in the US and can pass a drug test, you may be eligible for immediate hire.
