Do you get excited about business, sales, and advertising?! Do products, people, and profits dance in your dreams?!?
Can you show local businesses how to increase their revenue and profits by telling their story to customers using print and digital ads and fun events like the Holiday Shopping FEST with Santa Pet Pics benefiting the Lawrence Humane Society? We want you to enjoy realizing your dreams and helping local business owners to achieve theirs!
As advertising account executive you will call, email, and visit all kinds of businesses, discover their needs, show them that their customers are our readers, and that we can help them succeed. Then you’ll submit their info to ad designers who will create vibrant digital and print ads for LJWorld.com, the Lawrence Journal-World, KUsports.com and our family of websites. And you’ll sell and get to attend things like the NCAA Selection Show Watch Party and the Fall SHE event.
If you get excited to call on customers and close a sale, and you have strong presentation and computer skills, then we want to meet you! Having a college degree and experience doing outside sales would help, and if you’ve sold multi-media, digital products, marketing, or advertising we will be surprised and delighted, but don’t let it stop you if you don’t! Reliable transportation however is a must.
On top of a salary, bonus and commissions, health insurance and a 401k, this job will send you out and about Larryville every day, with a home base that boasts 30 ft ceilings, historic balconies, wall-to-wall windows and the KUSports.com writers all in the heart of downtown Lawrence where you’ll have some very real, amazing, and happy teammates. (Grouches need not apply. Grrrr.)
