• Advertising Sales Rep - Commission-Based

    River Journal North
    Job Description
    Possible Equity Stake/Staff Position for Right Person in 2020

    Must live in Croton-on-Hudson, Cortlandt or Peekskill (or near by)

    Are you a current or former print sales rep looking for a job that doesn’t involve commuting, dealing with media planners or worrying about the next round of layoffs? Do you want a part-time job selling ad space for a publication group that grew over 30% in print ad revenue this year? 

    River Towns Media, publisher of the River Journal, is launching a new publication called River Journal North in March 2020. In the first year since acquiring the River Journal, we’ve grown print advertising revenue by more than 30%! We plan to keep growing and the new publication is poised to deliver a monthly, local news publication to additional River Towns that have been underserved for years.
    River Journal and www.riverjournalonline.com have a very loyal readership throughout the most affluent River Towns of Westchester County. The River Journal is delivered to EVERY household and business in Irvington, Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow and Briarcliff Manor plus high-income households in Ossining (21,700 copies). The new publication will serve all the River Towns from Croton-on-Hudson to Peekskill (28,500 copies).
    We have an equally loyal advertiser base but are looking to expand. Most run at least six times per year - and as small businesses, they wouldn't keep spending if the ads weren't working!
    Our two current sales reps work on commission only and earn up to $4000 per month working less than 25 hours per week. Our two new reps will focus on River Journal North.
    Unlike national print, local print publications are thriving – we are the only game in town!
    There is a strong, existing book-of-business but the majority of time will be spent on developing new advertisers from among the 50,000 businesses in Westchester County. 
    This position is remote so you must be self-motivated and eager to grow with us. The publisher and marketing team are eager to help and will support you 100%!
