The Hired Guns are seeking an Ad Sales Lead with category experience in fashion to land and grow clients for a major player in Retail Media – the hottest business in today’s ad game. This is an amazing opportunity to pivot from publishing ad sales into this nascent industry.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This multi-billion-dollar e-commerce powerhouse has invested big-time in the retail media business. And it is super-sizing monthly at an unprecedented rate.
They are scaling their sales team to match the pace of the business so that they can continue to monetize their success. This is a chance to land, expand, and upsell premier fashion accounts across an iconic brand, liaise with senior and executive-level clients, and carve out a slice of the apparel pie as this brand continues its supercharged digital ad revenue growth.
The amazing thing is that customers are lining up to advertise, and so they need you to focus (mostly) on grooming and growing your accounts, which could grow by a factor of 10 in a year if you have the drive and tenacity. They need your apparel account know-how and relationship-building panache to continue to turbo-charge the retailer’s network of fashion brands.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You live and breathe digital ad sales – maybe you’re working for a big platform or a major publisher, but either way, you’re comfortable in a super-fast-paced environment.
You have spent at least 3 years selling digital ads to upscale mass-market apparel brands/media agencies for publishers or digital platforms. Early experience working as an account manager or customer success manager is fantastic for this role – but you still need to have a few years of directly selling into media teams and fashion brands.
You know fashion calendars, are a trend spotter, and have a clear pathway to clients in the apparel industry looking to reach shoppers where they live. You are also a data-driven seller and know how to work with your partners in account management and media planning. You’re a whiz at working with analytics to surface insights that will propel account growth.
