Sales in a very competitive work environment
Account Executive/Sales (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 23 August 2016
Yelp is a great company and I am lucky to have experience working at Yelp.
The account executive role in sales is very competitive. You make a high number of sales calls per day, trying to sell advertising packages to small, local businesses. You must be able to consult and engage with, educate, and successfully sell Yelp advertising to business owners, who may be unwilling to speak to you on the phone or reply any emails or voicemails.
You must know how to quickly think on your feet, and recommend products quickly to suit client needs by handling the different objections that they will throw at you.
Good for working towards goals, talking to people all day long, and if you have a passion for small local businesses.
Fully stocked kitchen, no extra work hours
Cold calls all day, competitive within teams
