As an Account Executive my day begins with providing the Amazon customers in my region with local selection from the highest quality local businesses. My task is to connect all of the Amazon customers who actively shop on Amazon with the best local merchants to provide them with a local shopping experience that goes beyond retail products on Amazon.com. From local restaurants to beauty salons to indoor skydiving, the greater the selection and variety I can provide to my Amazon shoppers the better experience they will have. My day is spent prospecting on sites like Yelp, Facebook, Google and local newspapers where I seek out the top quality merchants to call upon.
Once I’ve targeted local businesses that have passed our quality bar, I then engage with them about the opportunity to be introduced to some of the best customers who live around their businesses via a local offer on Amazon Local. This is the only form of marketing where there is no upfront cost with very minimal risk to these local businesses. It is a form of marketing where the worst case scenario is to have thousands of emails sent out and to have exposure on Amazon.com and our affiliate websites.
My days are never the same as a conversation with an auto salon is much different than a beauty salon. This is a role where you can come straight out of college and help hundreds of local merchants incrementally grow their customer base while increasing engagement on Amazon.com. I’ve been out of school for less than a year and have already exceeded all the personal goals that I have set for myself and have become a regular contributor on our sales team. If you are interested in sales in the small and medium business space the Account Executive role is one that will jumpstart your career in sales.
