The position overview:
Founded in 2004, The N2 Company is the nation’s leader in helping small to mid-sized
businesses efficiently connect with their ideal customers through niche publications, targeted digital offerings and creative events. Our publications contain hyper-local content for specific affluent communities and are highly respected and appreciated by the readers because most of the content comes from and is written by the residents themselves.
Who we are looking for:
Our ideal candidates are professional, outgoing people who often have an entrepreneurial mindset. Though most of the day-to-day for an Area Director revolves around sales related activity, it is far from a traditional sales role. While many of our team members do have prior sales experience, our unique low-pressure sales approach combined with the other responsibilities of the role have our Area Directors operating more dynamically as owners. As a result, we find ourselves interviewing former C-Level executives, business owners and other entrepreneurial minded individuals. Though some sales and business experience is considered a plus, we do have an extensive training and support system to help all of our team members to be as successful as possible.
- Meet with local business owners to conduct a low-pressure consultative meeting to determine if a partnership with our communities is a mutual fit.
- Develop meaningful relationships within the community
- Work with other Area Directors in the market to conduct a few informal events throughout the year to help further the connection between local businesses and their ideal customers receiving our publications
What ideal candidates find most attractive:
- Control over schedule – While our team members have strong work ethics and are
motivated by a sense of purpose in their role, they can flex their hours to optimize their productivity and work-life balance.
- Uncapped Commissions – Though not every team member is looking for the earning potential, most of our Area Directors take advantage of the commission structure that allows them to grow their income year after year.
- Meaningful Work – Our ideal candidates have many options when changing careers, yet those most attracted to this role find a sense of purpose in helping small business owners to grow their businesses, especially in a time when there’s so much noise revolving around advertising, digital marketing and other new business development concepts. Our Area Directors truly help simplify things for our partners and can stand behind our product offerings with integrity.
