Media Sales Consultant Cover Letter Example
« on: February 14, 2014, 10:44:57 AM »

Writing a cover letter for the job role of a Media Sales Consultant.

If you are interested in getting into Media Sales then usually the route into the Media world is through a Marketing or Media Degree so that you have some knowledge of the Media and what working in this environment involves.

To be in Media Sales you will need to have the correct personality to work in a sales environment and be motivated and thrive off making sales and not deterred by the people who say no.  The sales world is a highly pressurised environment and even more so in the media world when you are trying to sell media space including magazine or newspaper spaces, radio slots for advertising.

If you have done a degree related to Media then you could have already done a work placement or had some relevant experience through your degree which any company would think as advantageous but if this is not the case then there will be an opportunity to join in a Trainee capacity and learn the media business through the various roles and channels depending on your skill set.

Typically entry level roles in Media Sales can start at around £18,000 per annum but increasing due to experience and hitting those all important targets you could have the potential to earn £40,000 per annum. Please bear in mind these figures are only a guide and it is dependent on the role and the location of the role.

Within this role of Media sales, you can expect to do tasks such as:
  • Calling companies to sell various advertising slots, this can include cold calling as well as regular users of advertising spaces
  • Finding new companies to contact through business development and referrals and building relationships with these clients/companies
  • Being on top of the media world and keeping up to date on this ever changing environment
  • Discussing prices with clients and agreeing a figure that everyone is happy with
  • Monitoring your audience and targeting the appropriate clients for slots or sections
  • You will need to be comfortable with working to targets and working on a bonus structure depending on how much you sell and business develop.
Media Sales Consultant Cover Letter

Dear HR / Recruitment Manger,

With regards to your current vacancy of a Media Sales Consultant within your organisation, please find my CV attached.

As you can see, I have gained  two years working experience as a key account seller for my previous company, and I am now in the job market due to a restructuring which eliminated the inside sales department.

From my experience, I have gained extensive sales experience with both traditional and non-traditional media, both with experienced and start-up companies. I would be happy to discuss my sales targets and achievements with you in more detail, should you require.

I would like the opportunity to talk with you about potential opportunities that you may be aware of, and will call you next week to set a time.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.


Good luck.
