This course resets the sales process to identify an advertiser’s goals and objectives and to provide media and communications solutions. Being a video media seller in the new cross-platform world requires an evolved orientation to selling. You must create value (not sell a commodity), become your client’s personal brand manager, and advocate in the process while representing your company.
Topics covered include redefining the approach to video media sales, establishing a base of product knowledge, researching what’s important to clients, and building the presentation through to the deal-making stage. Also, gain an overview of offline and online video (broadcast, cable, digital/mobile) ad sales, including all aspects of the sales process. In this class, you’ll craft, research, prep, and deliver mock sales/marketing presentations and navigate a real-world experience of developing a true cross-platform campaign. Ideas and concept selling don’t have barriers—there is no traditional media or new media, just best practices, all with the goal of doing good work. Finally, delve into a basic understanding of media metrics, examine ratings information and support research, and then apply this information to the sales process.
Current senior-level industry professionals will visit the classroom, offering you direct access to real-world experience.
