What if I don't have any sales experience and what if I only have a few hours free a week?
We'd actually prefer it if you didn't have sales experience. We have no interest in the 'car salesman' mentality. If someone can only manage one or two contracts per month, that leaves more for others.
What exactly is C&P looking for and what exactly does an Agent/People Person do?
Extroverted and a people person. Every business needs something media related done so, why not bring up C&P in the conversation? Say a business wants to work with us. Note what they need, bring it back to the team and we'll work up the contract/schedule. You maintain communication between your client and C&P throughout the project. This is a make your own schedule and set your own take-in goals position.
How do I apply and what if multiple people apply?
Submit a one page resume with both a personal and work reference. The more the merrier as far as teammates go!
This seems almost to flexible, what would you require from me to be a part of the team?
In order to work effectively we require that you possess: strong communication skills; ability to stick to a deadline; internet savvy; your own smart phone; a social media presence; reliable transportation. You must be comfortable with picture and short bio up on website. This is a security feature no pic up and you aren't a C&P member. We'll train you and make sure you’re confident. C&P is a team.
What are the selling points for C&P and aren't there plenty of firms in Santa Rosa?
C&P has services which every new/established company/self employed person needs. We have low rates due to almost no overhead and a wealth of experience to do just about any media project. All mentioned points make us a forerunner for a project.
Sounds doable but what/when would I get paid and would all expenses be out of my pocket?
Everyone at C&P are 1099 freelancers so, if there is no active project that we're currently a part of we're not being paid. Agent take home is a minimum 35% of each contract brought in and managed. Project percentage is based on project involvement. Square makes deposits on the next business day and then we'll deposit it where requested. We cover email box, business cards and sales presentation materials. C&P has warm leads on hand to help you start.
