Description

Philadelphia RowHome Magazine is looking for a hard working, independent student or recent grad who is ready to break into the business of sales, marketing and advertising. Philadelphia RowHome Magazine is a South Philadelphia based magazine with a devoted fan base and client list. We're looking to expand into other areas of the city. You should love the industry and want to grow with us. You'll need to work independently to build a book in key territories like East Passyunk, Center City, South Street, Manayunk and other areas of the city.

Commission will be given on any ad sales you make.

Whoever applies must be willing to help out in other areas of the magazine as well. We are a small team who help each other out and roles overlap. Be prepared to do follow up phone calls, schedule photo shoots, confirm info with our clients, post on social media, fact check stories, etc. when needed.

Responsibilities

You will be a major part of our team- always on your toes to brainstorm, network, and keep RowHome Magazine in front of our readers. As a small magazine staff, you will take on many roles and help out wherever we need it the most on any given day.

You will be responsible for contacting prospective clients and explaining what we can offer them- ad space, editorial, partnerships, etc. You can do a lot via phone or email, but it's very important that you have a car to meet face to face with clients as well.

You will spend time researching new businesses, restaurants, contacts, events, etc that would be a good fit for our magazine and reach out to them with our media kit to secure ad sales.

You must have strong writing skills. We'll need help with magazine editorial and blog posts- covering events, writing press releases, interviews, small business spotlights, etc.

You will be required (if available) to attend RowHome related events to meet with the people on our team, and our friends/neighbors who read and subscribe to the magazine.

You will help us with ongoing projects.

Managing invoices and following up with clients for payments may also be a part of this position. We all help each other out here, as we are a small staff...so roles may overlap from time to time. Be ready to jump in and help out with all aspects of the magazine if needed.
