Are you passionate about photography? Have a knack for people and can network with ease? Let's talk!
We're hiring an Outbound Sales Specialist to join our growing Focal team. Together, we'll build out the Focal marketplace, recruit new photographers to our platform, and empower them to grow their business while providing top-notch service to our clients.
This is a full-time, contract position (35-40 hours/week). Co-op students are welcome. The role starts ASAP and continues until December 19th, 2020 (with a possibility of extension thereafter).
The goal and responsibility of the Outbound Sales Specialist is to prospect, engage, and convert photographers into paying customers on Focal's dynamic portfolio platform.
Social Media Engagement: Join photographers where they interact online (e.g. Facebook groups, Reddit communities) and engage with them. Your job will be to convey the benefits of Focal to them.
Direct Sales & Relationship Building: Create 1:1 connections with photographers and recruit them to join Focal's platform. In collaboration with Focal's team, you'll focus on key locations and cities to build out the Focal marketplace.
Prospecting: Find photographers that fit our target customer segment. Generate leads by sharing the benefits of the Focal booking system.
Audience Building: Find creative ways to provide value to photographers. Develop client familiarity and trust with the Focal brand and software.
Networking: You have a passion for social media engagement and building relationships online. You're a Facebook and Instagram whiz. You enjoy meeting new people and are comfortable introducing yourself.
Sales: You're experienced in sales/prospecting -- or if you're low on experience, you're willing and eager to learn sales processes.
Communication: You're a sharp writer. You know the difference between a run-on sentence and a sentence fragment. You're a confident speaker and can handle giving a presentation.
