Promotional Product Consultant

 

At SJA Promo, we really believe in building relationships with our customers to help them find the best promotional products for their needs.  With thousands of products and hundreds of suppliers, we can find the right branded product for every project!  Our showroom has thousands of samples and for those who prefer to work digitally, our searchable website, curated online showrooms and other great tools help make promo purchasing easy!

 

And just as important as our service to our customers is our service to our community.  We are a proud supporter of community events and have partnered with many non-profit organizations to run online fundraising stores and other projects.

 

About the position

 

As a Promotional Product Consultant, you work with customers to select best products to promote their brand. Whether it’s uniforms, giveaways, employee appreciation, donations or everyday business items, you name it, we can likely provide it!  You work with clients to understand their promotional needs, brand guidelines and preferences so that you can source and suggest great promotional products to meet their goals.  From there you develop quotes, create digital virtual proofs and ultimately get their products into production.  You get to follow the sales process right through to getting the perfect branded products into your customers’ hands.

 

Behind the scenes, you are continually increasing your knowledge of promotional products, trends and services through training, self learning and reaching out to our suppliers.  You work with the various supplier tools – online, email, phone - to seek out inventory, understand decoration options, research production timelines and determine the best options for your customer.  You are constantly on the lookout for products that will interest your customers.
