FIRST 2 WEEKS AT PUNCH TV STUDIOS
I never knew much about the television industry when I was first hired at Punch and honestly I did not need much experience since I was going to be apart of their sales team. I have done sales for over 10 years so I knew I couldn’t go wrong by applying for that position.
I worked with about 5 or 6 other sales agents and also worked closely with the marketing team to learn what the focus was for the week. A usual day would consist of making phone calls, sending emails, and drinking coffee. I needed a lot of coffee.
I loved the content Punch TV offered to its viewers so I would always pick a show I loved that week to shop to advertisers. It was a bit of a struggle my first few days because advertisers are very selective to where they send their money but I loved the the team at Punch TV always motivated me to keep going.
It was like something I have never seen before in the sales world. If you were ever involved in sales you know it’s a pretty self centered industry and you will do whatever it takes to get that sale over the next guy. Not at Punch TV.
The upper management always spoke to us in groups and told us that we are a team when we are trying to sell advertisement or anything that can be sold. I was most shocked by the fact that if I could not close a potential client, one of the guys from my team will close it with no problem, even if they did not receive any commission.
I would recommend Punch TV to anyone who is looking to increase their skills in sales as well as work in a fun and comfortable team setting.
