discuss their marketing goals and needs.

customers achieve maximum ROI.
• Ensure timely and accurate execution of marketing strategies.
• Ensure customer invoicing is accurate and assist in collecting delinquent balances as/if needed.

Successful candidates will possess the following characteristics:
• Energetic, optimistic self-starter — an individual worker.
• Excellent verbal communication skills and good written communication skills.
• Technologically proficient, including Gmail, Word, Excel, Google Applications (Google Sheets and Google Docs), Adobe Acrobat and browser-based applications.
• Basic knowledge of — or the ability to quickly understand — retail and service businesses.
Candidates must have the ability to meet with business owners or decision-makers
and understand the business and its marketing needs.

Compensation is a mix of salary, commission and bonuses. The pay range is from $32,000 annually with acceptable performance to $50,000 or more annually with outstanding performance.

Top performers will have the potential to advance to management responsibilities and higher compensation. We offer a full benefits package, including health insurance, paid vacation, paid holidays, 401(K), FSA, mileage reimbursement and complimentary disability and life insurance. The candidate should live in or within driving distance of Carter County.

The basic work week is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a family-owned company with a national footprint which is well established as the most widely read/viewed news and marketing medium in the Carter County area.
