What You Do at Podbean
Your style is to listen and learn from prospects, using a consultative sales approach to create and cultivate relationships, build and maintain customers for life. You should respond quickly and effectively to inbound leads, create a solution to meet the client’s needs, generate competitive proposals, negotiate the contract and close the deal. Besides handling the leads that comes to you, you should think through the opportunity within specific verticals, and create an approach to growing Podbean within these verticals. This includes working with a Sales Development Representative (SDR) on targeted outreach including email, phone, and events, working with our Marketing Team to align our messaging and ads to the right people and places.
You pride yourself in establishing long-term relationships and doing what’s best for the customer. You enjoy telling stories, doing demos, and are comfortable with everyone from executives to engineers to podcasters.
In addition, you are:
- An amazing communicator; you should be great at holding people’s attention whether via email, presenting, chatting on the phone, or meeting in person.
- Comfortable when it comes to selling, understanding how to build and manage a funnel, reach the right people, execute solutions-based selling, and close deals.
- Comfortable with negotiating terms, and reviewing contracts.
- Able to listen to the needs of clients and use that information to inform our product roadmap.
This role requires you to have a good understanding of podcasting, and to be able to communicate with clients and our internal team effectively. Moderate travel is required as well.
