|Advertising Manager for Parish Matters
Our magazine is now a year old and has been well received by
readers and advertisers alike, with the available advertising pages well filled
and many further expressions of interest from local businesses.
Our Advertising Manager’s commitments to his ‘day job’ mean
that he unfortunately has to relinquish the role with effect from the Spring
2018 issue. We therefore need to appoint a new Advertising Manager to
take responsibility for all incoming revenues, with effect from the New Year.
The success we have seen in building new advertising
business over the last 12 months has changed the focus of the role.
Whereas it previously involved mainly ‘cold calling’ on local businesses to
introduce them to the magazine, it now focuses on the Customer Services element
of the job. This includes:
- Ensuring all advertisers
receive copies of the magazine
- Collecting and reacting
to their feedback, especially in the swift resolution of any problems
- Keeping them informed of
new initiatives which might lead to further opportunities for them
- Maintaining the sales
ledger and selling renewals at the end of each series of ads
- Keeping in touch with
future prospects who have not yet advertised with us
The role requires strong customer facing skills and would
particularly suit someone with a good knowledge of local businesses and some
previous experience of sales, account management or client servicing.
Previous experience in magazine publishing – including knowledge of advertising
sales and print production processes – would be advantageous but is by no means
This will attract a modest quarterly fee.
