Savvy Media Sales Specialist

Savvy Media Sales Specialist – Social Media Content platform... create your own job title!
This video-based Youth News Brand start-up requires a dynamic content and social media sales, go-getter. This is a great opportunity for a young and dynamic sales person to develop this commercial opportunity from the ground up.

You will have 3+ years’ experience ideally in media sales under your belt and looking for the flexibility and freedom of a social media start-up aimed at the youth market. You will be digitally-savvy and if you are currently working in sales in a digital or social media environment, even better.
Whilst age is not a precursor for this role, the ability to empathise and relate to this niche video content-led medium is essential. But above all, you need to have media sales or related youth sales experience, as you will need to be able to develop business opportunities with direct advertisers as well as representing the brand to media agencies.

This recent start-up is an independent part of a major media organisation, creating and distributing dynamic content across social platforms. Launched a year ago, the brand has built a strong following and has a high level of engagement. Staffed by a group of young and passionate social media experts, the organisation is such that you can design your own job title!
The role is to take the existing content-led approach and monetise this exciting youth brand, so a strong sales presence is a mandate for the role.

This is your chance to be a part of an exciting, young, innovative team and make your mark at the grass-roots of a dynamic and growing digital media brand.

Who's it for: ASB by With Collective and Curious Films

Why we like it: The True Rewarden sheriff is back – and she’s here to teach us a lesson at the True Rewarden Academy training camp. The spot is simple and effective, with the sheriff explaining what True Rewards can be used for. We like Rachel House as the ‘True Rewarden’ as she brings great humour to the ad and hope ASB continues using the sheriff for further campaigns. 

Who's it for: LifeDirect by Trade Me by Y&R and Flying Fish

Why we like it: We all know unfortunate events happen to everyone at some time and we should be prepared. While most of us probably won’t end up in a shark's mouth, this is the premise of the hilarious new spot from LifeDirect by TradeMe. While the Jaws-esque ad is a change from Simon the Sloth (RIP), it's nice to see a bit of humour and fun injected into what can be a sometimes boring (but necessary) industry. 

Who's it for: Phloe from Douglas Pharmaceuticals by YoungShand and Reel Factory 

Why we like it: We can't go past ads that feature cute dogs and this one is no exception. Using a parade of misbehaving pooches to bring up the issue of bowel health is a clever move from Phloe. It's not clinical or scary and will ensure the audience is watching. Will be interesting to see how this campaign develops further or if another direction is taken.
