In this age of dire warnings about spending and an upcoming ’nuclear winter’, what the hell are we doing, expanding our employee base by 50%?
Good question. But, as always, we have a good answer. Because we need to.
As many of you know, we’re under contract with Career Press to author “The Ultimate Startup Guide”, which is due out in January. Consistent with that is the requests we get to take the lessons we’ve learned in launching 40+ startups and offer them in some form of workshop or class. So we’re looking for a sharp sales and marketing agent who can help us with the following:
- Workshops for accelerators (groups of startups)
- High-end workshops $4-5K for 3-day seminar on starting and succeeding in the world of startups
- MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) for universities and business schools
- Subscription-based video series based on the 20 chapters in “The Ultimate Startup Guide”
The position is commission-based, with the agent receiving 20% of any revenue she/he generates from the above activities or any other original programs. The ideal candidate has 3-5 years of sales and marketing experience, great phone skills and a desire to own and manage what could be a substantial and growing segment of the agency.
So if you know of any hard-chargers looking to join forces with two wonderful marketing gurus, please put them/us in touch.
