Independent Advertising Sales Representative

Posted: 01/13/2022

Work for the HOTTEST Local Media Company in Northern Westchester.

This is a commission-based position with a small base salary - our current sales reps earn between $2000-$3000 per month working part-time.

Looking for someone who lives in Peekskill, Cortlandt or Croton or close by.

Are you a current or former advertising sales rep looking for a job that doesn’t involve commuting, dealing with media planners or worrying about the next round of layoffs? Do you want a full or part-time job selling advertising for a publication group that grew over 40% in print ad revenue this year? And for a website that grew by 50% in 2021? Did I mention we also have a Podcast and are launching a Music Festival?

River Towns Media, publisher of the River Journal and the River Journal North, reaches virtually EVERY household and business in the Westchester River Towns from Irvington to Peekskill. Our two publications provide 100% local coverage about the communities we serve. The people, the schools, the businesses, the events, the arts and culture. There is nothing like it in the communities we cover. Combined we have a circulation of 50,000 - bigger than any single monthly print publication in Westchester.

This past year we grew our print advertising by 40% with myself and three part-time sales reps. We need one or two more great sales reps for the Peekskill, Cortlandt, and Croton-on-Hudson areas.

We have over 150 current advertisers and most run at least six times per year - and as small businesses, they wouldn't keep spending if the ads weren't working!

For the right person, we will provide a small base salary but the majority of your earnings with be from commission. Our current sales reps work on commission only and earn between $2000-$3000 per month working 20-25 hours per week.

In addition to print and digital advertising, we also offer our clients a full suite of digital marketing services, a podcast, access to millions of double-verified email address and new video and podcast opportunities. And in 2022 we are launching an indie music festival right here in the River Towns.

This position is remote so you must be self-motivated and eager to grow with us. The publisher, marketing team and editorial team are eager to help and will support you 100%! In fact, the Publisher will join you on calls, help you prospect and provide leads.

Ideal candidates should live somewhere in the Westchester River Towns. Preferably in the Croton-on-Hudson, Cortlandt, Peekskill or Yorktown area.

Responsibilities

  • Work with the Publisher to identify and call-on new advertisers
  • Present proposals for print, digital and multi-media opportunities
  • Make visits to existing customers to identify opportunities for growth
  • Be willing to prospect - cold calls, emails and in-person visits
