Business Development Associate

Localist Business Development Associates identify compelling opportunities in our target enterprise markets.

As a Localist Business Development Associate, you will identify target customers through a variety of online research tools and perform an analysis of the prospect's current online calendar, and online marketing goals and efforts. You would then engage the prospect to identify potential pain points Localist could resolve, and set up introductory calls for the prospect to discuss further with a Account Executive.

In order to do this job well, you must be confident, creative, and have a natural sales personality. Experience in cold calling, sales pitches, prospect research, general business development, and SaaS is a major plus, but not required. You will be given sales and product training so you are able to work with our prospects to clearly understand their requirements and if Localist can potentially help them.

  • Kick-starting the beginning of the sales process by cold calling and prospecting potential Localist clients
  • Scheduling introductory calls for Account Executives
  • Making an average of 250-300 touches per week to prospects
  • Developing creative tactics and strategies to build your prospecting pipeline
  • Generating momentum with a prospect to keep the process moving forward even after the introductory call
  • Recording and tracking all activity in Salesforce
  • Collaborating with the sales team to fine tune the sales process

The ideal candidate has
