Waypoint Films

Sales Associate

Type of work: Freelance
Location: Boulder / Denver
Date Posted: March 17th, 2013
Description:

Local production company Waypoint Films is looking for disciplined, self motivated, organized, high energy sales associate to work part time from home helping generate new business. Waypoint Films was founded in 2009. Over the past four years, we have created high quality video for major clients such as Nike, Whole Foods, American Express, Hyatt Hotels, and others, as well as for agencies, both local and costal.
I have been lucky to be too busy to focus on sales, but I do want to grow the company further. Plus I suck at sales – which is why I need you!

My work in the agency space is in good shape, so I'm looking for someone to focus more on the direct-to-client corporate video side. Ideally someone to focus on (and with experience in) the healthcare world – med tech, medical devices, pharma, etc. (much of our work is in this space)

I do want someone local – Boulder or Denver area

The ideal candidate will have the following qualifications:
Previous B2B sales experience and the ability to qualify and close
3+ years sales and marketing experience
4 Year degree a plus
Outgoing, energetic personality
Competitive desire to succeed
Detail oriented
Internet and new media savvy
Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
Networking skills
Have integrity and be of quality character
Ability to work independently without direct supervision
Organized with a "can do" attitude
Possess a strong desire to be successful
Willing to work as an independent contractor (1099)

Duties:
Research companies (focusing on local, but out of town companies ok too) that can benefit from using video as a marketing tool, AND have the marketing budget to support high quality video
Cold calling to these companies to determine the need for video
Set up (and attend when possible) meetings
Create sales goals and communicate progress

Once deals have been made:
Maintain client relationships - Stay in touch with past clients to determine need for additional video work
Conduct follow up calls to make sure clients are satisfied with the work.
Continue to reach out to new clients

Hours of work: The majority of this work can be done from home via phone and email. Hours are completely flexible, but this would be a freelance / 1099 position on commission only. Hours are totally up to you, but I would like someone who can commit to at least of 5-10 hours per week (more is fine).

Pay:
Independent contractor, commission based. Will discuss specifics during interview process, but based on past years’ sales figures a very reasonable wage is possible.
