    Job Description

    NOW HIRING 2019 FALL INTERNS! We're a 7-year-old company and we've had the pleasure of working with dozens of fantastic interns over the past 6 years. We've worked hard to develop our internships so that individuals truly learn new skills and come away with valuable experience to add to their resumes.

    Our Inside Sales Interns provide support to our full-time sales team to acquire new clients for Social High Rise. Interns are trained to understand social media philosophy, as it relates to restaurants and small businesses. Interns will also go through rigorous sales training to learn to qualify leads, overcome objections, close, and build and maintain a strong sales pipeline over the phone and through email.

    RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:

    • Spending approximately 12-15 hours per week working with our sales team on a consistent, pre-determined schedule. Punctuality and dedication are extremely important.
    • Averaging 8+ dials per hour
    • Sending appointment reminder emails to qualified leads
    • Sending email campaigns to nurture and flush-out warm leads
    • Learn and practice how to quickly overcome objections, closing techniques, and persuasive sales psychology
    • Bringing an attitude of hustle every day
    • Working to find solutions to complex problems quickly and competently.
    • Constructing detailed processes for organizing and analyzing data.
    • Shadowing the Social High Rise team to learn sales and business-related skills that can be applied to future career opportunities.
    • A bunch of other stuff that might come up, because after all, we're a startup, and things don't always follow a plan.

    DEFINITION OF SUCCESS:

    • Qualify 10 leads per month
    • Schedule solid appointments with qualified leads to speak with a Sales Executive

    COMPENSATION:

    • $25 per qualified appointment set
    • $75 per deal closed as a result of a lead you qualify
    • Other perks
    • Snacks
    • An accelerated rate of learning, since we're a start-up and we move quickly
