A typical day at work is to call on existing advertisers that have been assigned to you, and selling/managing their accounts. We have daily/monthly/quarterly goals for dollar amount sold, as well as attempted phone calls. In the midst of all this we are also responsible for calling on prospects and selling new products.
I've learned a lot about how online advertising works and the importance it has for a business to succeed. I've learned how to interact with people that I will most likely never meet face to face, and putting myself in a position to have them listen to me, and buy products from me.
My personal Manager is great! She has been a lot of fun and an absolute joy to work with.
My co-workers are fun loving and willing to help out whenever they can. We can usually rely on each other to help with sales, and making customers happy.
The hardest part of our job would definitely be working with customers that are upset or want to cancel. When customers cancel or reduce the amount they spend, the loss in revenue is charged to the Sales Rep, and then we must fill that gap with new product sales. Some times the loss comes out in great quantities and pulling yourself out of that hole is difficult.
I love our schedule, and I love making a sale. I love working with customers that are willing to listen and feel confident enough in my product knowledge to buy from me.
