The Business Development Representative consults with business owners, helping them build their online marketing presence to stay competitive in the marketplace, while demonstrating a reputation of trust, credibility and high-quality service. Success in the Business Development Representative role requires a results-driven mentality with significant time on the phone. Requirements include adhering to all company presentation guidelines and policies; delivering presentations via telephone in a pleasant, professional and confident manner; accomplishing targeted performance objectives on a consistent basis; honesty, integrity and ethics; high energy with a strong desire to achieve top results; being a self-starter and ability to work independently; and self-motivation and dependability.
The key to this position is an outgoing, friendly, genial interaction with a wide range of people. In this job, it is very important to connect with other people, to quickly form relationships, and to use those relationships to get work done. This job requires great attentiveness to other people; the ability to read other people, to listen to them, and to empathize with them. Communication is almost always a "selling" rather than a "telling" nature. Personal interactions will generally be upbeat and cheerful, requiring someone who is warm, helpful, and friendly. A faster-than-average pace will be the norm for this position. There will be several "pots on the fire" at once, therefore the job requires one to shift from task to task quickly and maintain a strong sense of urgency to keep everything going smoothly. The same easy-going, informal manner that is required of personal interactions carries over into any work products.
