Successful Local Broadcast Sales

New AMACOM Book Gives Media Professionals the Power to Boost Sales and Woo Clients

Every year, thousands of marketing and communications students graduate from school in pursuit of a career in television or radio. For many of them, a job in broadcast sales can offer them more glamour and money than they ever imagined. Those who succeed have access to the best parties, the hottest sporting events, and may even have the opportunity to travel or live abroad. But a career in broadcast sales can be challenging without the right guidance. Turnover in radio and television sales departments is high and getting higher all the time. In addition, the influx of new media like iPods, satellite radio, and interactive cell phones has made closing sales even more difficult. For the right person, however, there is still a tremendous opportunity to build a rock solid career.

Author Paul Weyland has decades of experience working with local direct clients. Now, in SUCCESSFUL LOCAL BROADCAST SALES (AMACOM 2007) he shares his hard-won wisdom, showing television, radio, and cable salespeople how to get more sales. Written for the novice and veteran salesperson alike the book includes valuable information on how to prospect for clients, how to create genius creative without being a creative genius, how to sell against other media, how to calculate ROI for the client’s advertising dollar and how to close long-term contracts with local businesses.

• Write powerful proposals

• Explain broadcast marketing to their customers
