Inside Sales Consultant (Design Consultant)
What The Role Entails:
Do you love the experience of pairing customers with a product that turns their home into a work of art – and get paid handsomely as if you’ve sold a Picasso? If so, then you’ve come to the right gallery.
61% of our business comes from repeat or referred customers, so this is an inside sales role. You will be the friendly voice to help them find a creative solution. Customers will keep calling you back because they love seeking your advice to decorate and design every room in their homes. Reach for new heights while seeking to continuously improve all phases of your inside sales approach to “WOW” every single person you interact with.
Don’t worry if you don’t know much about blinds. We’ll develop you through an extensive paid training program and pair you up with a specialist (sales coach) who will mentor you and grow you further.
Best of all? You’re in control of your Performance-Based Compensation potential. Top Inside Sales Consultants (Design Consultants) have earned $100,000+ in their first year.
