Advertising sales manager

City:  Pauls Valley
Newspaper:  Pauls Valley Daily Democrat
Salary:  Negotiable
Job Description & Requirements:  Are you ready to manage the advertising department of a small daily newspaper with big ideas? Then get in touch with us. We're a five-day-a-week afternoon daily — the only daily in the county. Sure, the economy is a bit stressed, but our local businesses are holding their own. There's plenty of low-hanging fruit and growth potential here for a motivated, eager advertising manager. You'll need good organizational skills, enthusiasm and sales skills. You'll manage and coach a small staff, file reports, help determine sales goals and budgets and help develop, plan and implement special sections. You'll also maintain your own call list. Some design experience would be helpful; creativity is a must. Pauls Valley sits on I-35, about 35 miles south of Norman, an hour south of Oklahoma City and 2.5 hours north of Dallas. We boast about our downtown brick streets, solid downtown and year-round festivals.
