Local Media Company Recruits Sales Professionals

O’Rourke Media Group, a fast-growing, local media company is recruiting for sales professionals to join its team. These are essentially Account Executive positions responsible for developing new business along with account management.

“We are looking for sales professionals that have a proven track record building relationships in a B2B sales environment,” says CEO/Owner Jim O’Rourke. “We’re seeking motivated individuals with media sales experience, but we’re also open to considering those looking for a career change.”

Some attributes of successful sellers in O’Rourke Media Group – entrepreneurial, competitive, eager to learn, easy to work with, money motivated, passionate about their job, digitally focused, excellent communication skills, organized and more.

O’Rourke Media Group currently operates in six states with a full-service digital agency and 24 publications and hyperlocal websites. Their team of account executives specialize in providing customized digital marketing strategies and solutions for any size business and budget. OMG is a hyper-local community news publisher with an audience of print subscribers, digital subscribers, website pageviews, social media followers and email newsletters.

The Company has established itself as a top-performing, full-service digital agency in the communities it serves and with many customers outside of their core market areas. Their digital revenue is increasing at a rapid pace, they provide a robust offering of advertising solutions, and they post excellent customer retention as a result of their in-house fulfillment team and analytics firepower.

“I’m really excited about our current sales and support teams and the talent that we’ve been able to recruit into our company,” says O’Rourke. “We are posting industry-leading top and bottom-line results and have been for several years now, largely as a result of having excellent sales leadership, sellers and resources that support each of our markets.”

The Company has bold plans to continue its growth both organically and through additional acquisitions. On April 1, they acquired a niche advertising business in Delaware that has a strong, reputable brand and excellent group of employees.

“We’re going to keep expanding with a goal to reach 100 markets as quickly but as intelligently as we can,” says O’Rourke. “Our playbook is working – we get digital, we have strong, reputable brands, we love that hyper-local content is still in the center of what we’re doing, and most importantly, we’re focused on building a top-performing, results-driven sales company. I call that a winning strategy.”
