Why a Career in Media Sales?
Media sales is not just a great career, it's the door to a world of opportunities.
The Money's Good
It's good to get paid for your hard work. Account executives start at an above-average salary (depending on regional and personal factors) and have a vast range of growth potential over time. Colorfyl's training and post-hire coaching help you develop the technical skills and personal fortitude - the edge you need to find and grow your accounts.
Depending on your region and sales ability, most successful starting Account Executives can expect to earn at least $50k in their first year
Account Executives with a few years experience can expect to earn more than $100k annually and this number can be substantially more for go-getters
Top performers have vast earning potential, with many easily clearing $350,000 a year and some making considerably more. Not bad!
These numbers are based on national averages and real people. We are committed to your success, but cannot guarantee the same results
