First of all thank you for taking the time to look at this job posting. I sincerely hope that we are a good fit for each other. This position will be ongoing as long as you are able to prove yourself and your abilities in the field.
Secondly, let me give you a brief breakdown of my business so that you can get a grasp of the business model and whether it will work with your experience and skills. I own and operate an ad network that offers a platform for both website publishers as well as advertisers. We are very much like Google AdWords and AdSense in the sense that we offer PPC bidding for advertisers, but we are also much more, because we offer the option of adding CPA bids seamlessly into the bidding model.
The control panel is extremely user friendly and integrates advertising and publishing into one back end. We are currently in the process of testing the network, but we are well on our way to a timely launch in mid-May. The only medium we offer for advertising and publishing is currently banner ads, but we will be implementing text and mobile ads very soon. We are averaging over 2,000,000 views per day network-wide and that is growing daily.
After reading the quick overview of the business and seeing yourself as a part of our team, then I'll go ahead and tell you exactly what I'm looking for.
I am in search of an experienced sales person, preferably someone who has worked with a CPA or PPC advertising network in the past.
You must have a proven track record of driving quality leads and sales.
You must be able to speak and type in English clearly and without error. On that note, if you are bi-lingual that is a huge plus, because we offer world-wide traffic to our advertisers and we want advertisers and publishers from all over.
You must have more than 40 hours of billed time on oDesk, or the contractual equivalent.
You must have a feedback rating of 4.5 or better.
If you have any other skills or experience that you believe would make you a better fit than the other applicants please let me know in your response to this post. In order to be considered for the position please include your favorite color, and the happiest moment in your life in your response. Optional request: please give me a brief overview of your sales plan when approaching advertisers, as well as a separate sales plan for approaching publishers. If you feel inclined to include this in your response it will help me gauge your experience and whether you would be a good fit for the position.
All leads will be screened for quality. I am offering an incentive to drive more quality leads by paying $0.50 per lead, with the chance to earn more per lead after proving yourself and your abilities.
Thank you for taking the time to read this entire job post, and I look forward to speaking with you further!
