Outside Sales

We think of the hiring process as a critical first step in sustaining a straight forward, positive and performance-oriented company culture. We look forward to reviewing your application and speaking with you in person.

Account Managers manage five community sales campaigns in their first year of employment, typically within 45 minutes of their home. This is fun, dynamic, and demanding work! As an Account Manager, you will meet face to face with the owners and managers of every business located in your protected territory. Account Managers are responsible for selling traditional HomePages® Directory advertising, as well as CloseBy® Text Marketing and Optima™ services to these merchants.

While each of our 50,000 existing customers receives an in-person visit from an Account Manager to renew their participation in our community directories, we regard new business development and the ability to quickly identify and close new customers as the single most important trait of people on our field sales team. Our sales people must be smart, focused, and able to see a project through to its successful completion by implementing the proven HomePages® Sales and Marketing Program. Our successful sales reps share a number of common sales traits, chief among them a very high level of interpersonal persuasive skills, the ability to stay organized, and a willingness to work very hard.

Sales Compensation


Sales Compensation

We are proud to reward strong sales representatives exceptionally, and to provide our employees and their families with excellent benefits. In 2015, the average full year HomePages sales rep earned $79,884. While new members of our sales team usually earn less on average during their first year, many of our more tenured sales reps consistently earn in the low to mid six figures annually, as do a small number of new hires.

We’re proud of the fact that average sales compensation has gone up every year but one since 1997, our first year in business. HomePages® Sales Representatives receive a base salary which is paid bi-weekly regardless of sales performance. The base pay is a modest $25,000 per year with the opportunity to increase it to $30,000 within two months of being hired and it is matched with a very aggressive and consistent commission structure, which pays out at rates between 3% and 30% dependent on performance and position.

Commissions are paid monthly. Reps are eligible additionally for several standard monthly and quarterly bonuses based on sales achievement. Benefits: Blue Cross / Blue Shield Health Insurance Vision, Dental, & Life Insurance Company 401K Automotive Allowance, 15 Paid Time Off Days and 9 Paid Company Holidays annually Paid training and a positive, supportive sales environment.

 

Sales Interviewing Process


Sales Interviewing Process

If a resume suggests relevant experience and qualifications, the next step is a phone interview with one of our Hiring Managers. The most promising candidates are invited for an in-person interview with a District Manager or Vice President at one of our local sales offices.

Interviewing Tips

  • We will want to understand who you are and what you've accomplished. Be ready to talk about specific past experiences.
  • Assemble hard evidence of past achievements. If you have documentation that shows any of your past successes, bring it along.
  • Our objective during the interviewing process is to ensure a mutual good fit for you and for our company. What are your priorities and goals?

If the in-person interview determines a likely mutual fit, we invite candidates to spend a day with us in the sales field so that each candidate can experience our sales process and a typical day alongside an existing member of our sale team. Finally, we ask candidates to learn about our short, standard sales script before coming to our fun but intense week-long new hire training and orientation program.

The candidate review and recruiting process is coordinated from start to finish by a dedicated Hiring Manager who both makes the initial interviewing decisions and then coordinates the next steps from the in-person interview to the first day of formal classroom training.

 

Sales Training


Sales Training

Our sales training includes both formal classroom and field sales training. We believe that great sales people are constantly learning and growing to stay at the top of their game. We view our substantial investment in your initial classroom sales training as merely the beginning of that process.

A new hire begins their employment at our corporate offices in a comfortable classroom training environment, led by people who are not just great trainers, but great salespeople as well. Every classroom trainer has spent years successfully selling our product and is enthusiastic about transmitting their own experiences and the company's best practices to you. During the first week we cover company orientation, basic sales skills, product features and benefits, field organization and materials, sales process, technological resources, objections training, and attitude management.

The second week involves hands-on field training by District Managers or Assistant District Managers. You independently begin making sales calls and closing sales right away, and account prep, paperwork, and point of sales skills are demonstrated and reviewed in the field.

During the next six weeks, new team members go through a series of four field training modules that reinforce material first introduced in the classroom. The objective of these field training modules is to develop and demonstrate competency and confidence in specific aspects of our sales process.

In addition to the formal program of new and continuing employee training and orientation, all company employees are invited and encouraged to participate as learners or teachers in our monthly Leadership Development Program, which is facilitated by company founders and executives, and on morning conference calls where we share recognition, practical advice from peers in the field, and stories of success.
