OVERVIEW OF DEPARTMENT
The Ad Sales team job is rather simple: drive revenue from any company in the world (or least those that are legal) while maintaining an acceptable profit margin. If we go by the book, we’ll pitch, present, push and/or leverage the amazing product & services that SpinMedia offer. If we don’t go by the book (and often we don’t) we’ll pitch, present, push and/or leverage whatever the client says they want. We work with ad agencies and clients to understand who they’re targeting, the message they’re trying to sell and how they’ll determine if we’re successful for them. We take that input and share it with all of the smart teams that support us. They do the heavy lifting and then ad sales has to do whatever it possibly takes to sell it. If we have a great idea or a better brand than the next guy or simply a better relationship, our odds of winning the biz are very good. Simply said, to be successful in sales it takes a little science, lots of hard work and luck.
