DescriptionWe are located in Glendale, California. I have manufactured a run of very unique shoe bags and I need at least one intern who can work a minimum of 6-12 weeks, or more, locating, contacting and selling the product to independent shops throughout Los Angeles and the U.S. This product appeals to women of all ages who love shoes (i.e. brides, girlfriends, mother & grandmothers). If you have in interest in sourcing just brides and/or another niche market, you will have that option. You will be working out of a very friendly home office with two small hypo-allergetic dogs. An addition perk is that you will be able to earn a bonus for all of the sales that you lock down.
ResponsibilitiesResearch/phone calls/emails to identify potential retail outlets who would be interested in this product. One-on-one contact with shop-owners to provide detailed photos and pricing information to potential buyers. Sales of products. Some social media marketing and merchandising will also be required. A lot of this job can be done remotely, but you will need a face to face check-in once per week. Some social media advertising and blogging required. Research and sales are the largest part of the job. Help with inventory may also be required.
RequirementsMust have an excellent phone manner, comfortable presenting information, technologically savvy and willing to take risks. Must also have a car to bring sample products to potential buyers. Some experience with sales, marketing and merchandising. Must be comfortable selling and asking for the close. Social media skills helpful.
