    Hey guys,

    Over the last 2 years, my company has been growing quickly. We currently have around 15 staff, but I'm looking to expand.

    Your job will be selling a software product to affiliate networks (both established and new). The product has been around for a year and we've recently starting selling it directly to networks. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to push it, so I'm looking for a dedicated salesman/woman to join our team.

    Some details and requirements:

    - Proven product. We're not a fly-by-night start up.
    - Must have excellent English skills. I prefer native US/Can/Aus/UK, but it's not essential
    - Work from home and your own hours. For those who are UK based, there's a possiblity to work in our office after 6 months
    - Commission only. Tiered payments. More you sell, more you make. Some of the best people in my team will make 6 figures this year
    - Past sales experience is preferred
    - Affiliate marketing experience is essential and basic knowledge of software would be helpful. Existing contacts with affiliate networks is a big plus
    - Equity options in the company available after a year
    - Join a young and exciting company that is growing quickly
    - I am not looking to hand hold someone, so people with existing experience will be prioritised
    - Start immediately
    - Report directly to me

    If the above appeals to you, please write a short paragraph in this thread as to why you think you would be suitable and a little about your past experience.

    I will contact you DIRECTLY so please no PM's about this.

    Thanks
    Thomas

    Why should I be hired?

    I have real sales experience with both B2B and B2C. I have sales experience working for a billion dollar corporation and on my own. I have been involved with Affiliate Marketing for the past 2 years and am knowledgeable in that arena. I also have a knowledge of the products in the Affiliate Marketing world. I am also someone who understands that anything worthwhile in life takes effort. I communicate quickly and clearly with co-workers, bosses, and customers.

    Look forward to hearing back from you.

    Had a few questions and PMs (!!), so some extra clarification:

    - I'd expect at least 15 hours a week commitment
    - I'll be hiring at least 2 people to start so it would help if you can work as a team so we all make more money :)

    I would love to join the team!

    A bit about me: I worked for 3+ years mainly in offline sales and did some IM part time.
    I can go into details in private if you wish to.
    Currently i'm working with 3 fulltime employees and some freelancers.

    looking forward to work with you.

    Cheers!

    I don't have any sales experience other than the affiliate marketing that I do. However I am post graduate in marketing and management, and have good convincing skills. I m keen because of the equity option that you spoke about. I live in the US, but not a native american (I am from India), but I strongly believe that I can find a way to get anything done. I would also like to know more about the company and the job profile.

    Thanks

    Seems as though I have waited a bit too long to edit.

    Anyways, I would once again thank you for answering my questions Thomas.

    Now, a little bit about myself:

    I have worked as a part-time salesman for various companies in the past, and recently (~1.5 years ago) discovered IM as the love of my life. I have had plenty of time to learn since I tore my rotator cuff, and I excelled with CPA. I was frequently in contact with owners of such affiliate networks like CPA Beyond, Ploose, and more. Having over 25+ accounts on various networks I can say that I've been around the block. Knowing a bit more about the product I can say I know of at least 15 networks at this point who could seriously profit off of it. I additionally recognize the more we sell, the more we all make, and I have the ambition to make more than anybody. We all know that ambition is what defines a man and what he will achieve.

    You want fifteen hours. I'll give you thirty.
    You want success. I want it more.

    Let's make this work.

    Hello Thomas,

    I would love to work as part of your team as I know that your product will definitely live to your reputation. For the past 5 years I have worked on various aspects of the internet including marketing various products, working with several affiliate companies, SEO, flipping sites and running a hosting company. Over this period I have learnt many things such as how important it is to communicate well with clients and potential clients in order to have good long-term business relationships. I can provide at least 15 hours of commitment a week, and much more if needed. I am a native English speaker, and can be available to work in your office when required. I also have a few contacts to get started with, that I'm sure would love your product when more information is given. I am driven to make money, and realise the potential here that more sales is more money for both of us and will always go that extra mile to make sales happen.

    Feel free to get in contact with me, if you think I am a suitable candidate.

    Thanks

    J

    Hi Thomas.

    Although I'm fairly new to Internet Marketing as whole, prior to my current employment I spent 8 years as a Sales Manager for a company which employed over 100 people at its most busy times. For the past 3 years I have worked in Marketing for a Renewable Energy company, mainly dealing with media, local and National events, web and social marketing.

    My daytime job is spent in front of a computer, and as a trusted employee I have a lot of time to myself to do my own thing.
    I got interested in IM for the thrill of the chase, which is something I miss from my previous job and is lacking in my current role.

    I live and have always lived in the UK. Welsh by Nationality, fluent in Welsh and English.

    As an independent self-starter I feel I'd be a strong fit for this position.

    Prior to my current position working professionally in Marketing (where I design, manage and execute marketing initiatives both online and offline to meet client needs and am the primary liaison to these clients in both selling them on the plans, addressing their concerns and reporting results) I was a freelance marketing specialist and responsible for my own sales.

    I'm a Scot living in Canada, fluent in English, comfortable working in written German and Swedish, and have ready access to individuals with far better French language skills than I, should a multi-lingual push of this software be advantageous.

    While my previous experience is primarily in B2B sales in a face-to-face environment, I do have some experience in CPA and product launches and feel that with my experience in various business fields and settings (including: Marketing, Independent Sales, and Customer Support) and my educational background in Psychology (and Philosophy, critical thinking analysis and linguistic focus) that I have a wide set of adaptive skills that will allow me to flourish in any situation presented.

    At the end of the day you want to grow your company and make more sales, while my skill set may not wield as much experience in the specific method as others I am confident that I can deliver results as there is not a single client I have worked with whom has not see a solid growth in sales from my work. Allow me to bring my unique set of skills to the table and take an innovative approach to pushing your product to untapped demographics and reach its fullest potential.

    Thanks for all applications so far.

    I'm going to give it another 24 hours, and then move onto round 2.

    I'll contact all of those who are successful. You'll then have to complete a short sales exercise to see how well suited you will be for the role. From there, I'll pick 2 people to go forward.

    Thanks!
