Nearly 4 years ago we set a goal to create more connection within our community of North Ogden. We approached the city and made an arrangement to publish a city magazine for them and we named our company Connection Publishing. After being in business for a little over a year, we started getting approached by other cities who wanted the same service for their communities. Our magazines replace the fold-up newsletter that most people get with their utility bill. We make it a full-featured magazine that communicates better and gives people access to information about events and city news along with local businesses. As our name states, we create connection in the communities we serve. We are partnered with each city but are funded by advertising from local businesses. This position will spend time getting to know the community and making contacts with local businesses and selling advertising. It requires someone who loves people and businesses and wants to help them succeed.
We have tons of room to grow and we are looking for someone who has an outgoing personality and also a desire to be part of making something great. Day to day activities will include networking with local businesses, contacting business owners and following up with both clients and potential clients. Must have a self-driven personality as there will be flexibility in this position. Working mostly from home and out in the field, selling ads and helping customers come up with creative advertising ideas. We want someone who can help us grow and who will take a personal interest in the success of the magazine and its clients. This is not just a job, it is something that can bring connection and positivity into the lives of not only our readers and community members but to the lives of our employees.
