Why chose radio sales?
You’ll Receive Valuable Training!
If you don’t have experience in radio sales, no problem! Today’s broadcasters understand the value of properly training their employees. As a recent industry study found, two-thirds of today’s radio salespeople who have entered the profession in the past two years say that their first six months of sales training was “good” or “excellent”. But that hasn’t always been the case. Those who have sold radio for 10 years or more verified that. Almost 60 percent of the “old timers” rated their first six months of training as only “fair” or “poor”. Entering the profession in this new era of consolidation ensures that you’ll get the right training and tools to have a successful career as an account executive.
You’ll Put Your Creativity to Work!
Selling advertising for a radio station isn’t like selling copiers or cell phones. There’s a lot more creativity that goes into marketing your station and the radio “product”. You won’t simply by selling “air”. You’ll be helping create the commercial message that fills that airtime. You’ll also learn to schedule the commercials effectively, help in the creation of their content, and work with your customers to develop their entire marketing plan. A radio account executive helps turn an intangible product or service into a unique marketing campaign by using his or her own creativity.
And besides, working in the broadcasting business is hardly like working for a bank or insurance company. Radio is “show biz”. Participating in community events, helping design and execute promotions and working with the on-air personalities at our radio stations add extra spice to a job that is unique from any other industry.
