Community Seeds Is Opening the Doors to Interns!

Community Seeds Eco Magazine is now accpting interns!! We are offering commission only compensation and a lot of experience in sales and marketing.

Community Seeds Eco Magazine (the eco-friendly community e-zine) in the Chico, CA area, is looking for a dynamic, energetic person to add to their sales/marketing team. Prior sales experience is not required, but helpful. Must be out-going, independent, have a desire to sell ads and be able to represent the magazine in a respectful, confident manner. Salespeople will work as independent contractors (with Independent Contractor Contract), or Interns, reporting weekly via internet. Work your own hours 5, 20, 25… and some can be from home. Must have some computer (internet/e-mail/attachment) experience and be dependable. Intern pay will be 20% commission, which can increases to 25% with successful ad sales.

Interns will work with the magazine team to market the magazine and sell ad space. Interns will contact (via visiting and calling) businesses, share the media kit and recruit advertisers. Interns will be part of the sales team and report to the Editor-in-Chief via email or telephone. They will be required to update a database of contacts, which we have in a Yahoo! Group on line. They may have to email advertising contracts and media kits to clients. Interns will have the option to attend local events we are sponsoring, such as the Threshing Bee and The Green baby Expo to help promote the magazine and support the community. Interns may also write for the magazine and design ads if they choose, but is not required.
