WANTED: Brand Sales & Marketing Associate
You love the outdoors. You ski, you ride, you run–at least a little… You work hard, you play hard. You’ll tackle anything. You don’t take no for an answer. If that’s you—and you’re looking for a dream job where you can take off on a powder day and make up for that time later. . Here it is:
Help grow two of the best-loved magazine brands in the Northeast: Vermont Ski + Ride and Vermont Sports. As our Brand Sales and Marketing Associate, you will not just sell ads but will develop collaborative marketing partnerships with clients across our print, digital and social media as well as sponsorships and events.
You’ll tell the world why these two magazines, with a combined reach of 160,000 across five states, are smart ways to reach New England’s most active, affluent and engaged audiences: skiers, hikers, cyclists, kayakers, runners, second home owners and their families.
Your clients may include outdoor retailers, ski resorts, architects and builders, restaurants, hotels, real estate businesses and more. You may also have the opportunity to call on national accounts and equipment manufacturers.
We’ll need you to spend some time in our offices in Middlebury and to represent us at events around the state. On the other days you’ll be out on the road, making calls, meeting quotas and following up.
We’re looking for someone who has:
- A proven track record in sales
- The ability to develop and sell to a new client list
- Creative marketing and event ideas
- Clear, compelling and concise communication skills
- Boundless energy, gritty persistence and joyful enthusiasm
- Passion for outdoor sports and Vermont, preferred
This is a part-time or full-time job (depending on your circumstances) with a small base salary but compensation is largely commission-based. You’ll have flexibility and freedom in your schedule, but we will expect weekly reports and sales quotas to be met.
Send your resume and cover letter to email@example.com
