My first two months at RGM have definitely been an eye opener for me; showing me what a sales job is really like, but from the other side… proactively making contact with national brands.
I went from an inbound call centre selling insurance, to phoning big-name brands to help promote themselves through the competitions, promotions and offers that we organise. Joining the RGM team was such a great decision. Like every new role, I came across a couple of bumps in the road at the beginning as there is so much to learn and absorb but who doesn’t find a new job challenging to begin with? With two months now completed, I can safely say it has been everything and more than I expected; it’s a lovely relaxed but professional working environment and the team are great! We are a team of 10 including the sales, production and digital teams. I love being part of a small team as everyone helps everyone; we can all share ideas and you get the support that you need.
RGM is a great place to work; it’s target-driven which to some people might be daunting, but when you have a great commission structure to earn, it is definitely rewarding and makes you determined to want to hit your target each month.
As a Sales Account Manager, I am responsible for building up my own fresh client base, making the first point of contact to a new brand in order to introduce RGM, and start educating that brand on what we can do for them. The feeling of making your first sale is great, and it’s then such a drive to want to make more. One of the most important things in this role is to have a positive attitude at all times. Inevitability, there will be some days, weeks or even months were you might not necessarily make a sale or hit your target, but you have to be able to pick yourself back up and start fresh. Every no is one step closer to a yes.
I hope to progress my job role within RGM and eventually become a Senior Account Manager. I know that with my positivity and drive for making sales, I will get there. I feel positive and comfortable within the job I am in and I really do see a big future for myself within RGM.
