ZippityNews is an exciting four year old Portland publication.

We are a truly unique neighborhood paper with a loyal following. We're free, and you can find us at over 120 restaurants, coffee shops, and other locations. There's NOTHING like ZippityNews!

Our first edition (Southeast Portland), began in June, 2012, and we opened up our second edition (Northeast) on November 2013. We're expanding quickly now, with an exciting new concept, and are launching Beaverton as our next area. Come along and join the fun and be part of this new, exciting concept!

We're also hiring qualified Ad Sales Representatives for both Northeast and Southeast Portland. This position is perfect for someone who likes talking with people, knows how to get the job done, is a hard worker and self-starter, and wishes independence and a casual "no pressure" atmosphere.

A minimum of one year of successful sales experience is required, but if you are also retired or semi-retired, and you know how to "close," let's hear from you!

You'll be calling on small businesses and offering them advertising opportunities. You can set your own schedule during the 9-5 work week.

There is lots of room to grow, lots of fun to be had, and lots of money to be made.

We encourage and provide a cordial, respectful atmosphere.

Eligibility Requirements:

* Excellent verbal and "people" skills
* An understanding of small business owner needs
* Some basic computer knowledge
* A passion and drive for success
* Your own transportation
* Integrity (a must)
* A hard worker


* Work your own hours -- no office hours ever
* The more you sell, the more you make
* Potential base salary for the right candidate
* Earn a generous 20% commission on ad space you sell
* Generous bonus potential for good producers


Do you prefer to stay at home and talk to people on the phone?

We also have an ** Appointment Setter ** position, which offers independence and convenience.

Here's our base compensation package. Performance bonuses are available for your excellent results!
You'll be paid $30 for every appointment with qualified decision-maker(s) you schedule for our salespeople, that is kept. PLUS, when a sale is made, you'll receive an additional 5% bonus on the total advertising amount.

Like our outside sales positions, you can set your own hours during the work week.
Who will I be working for?

ZippityNews strives to create a supportive environment. We view people as working "with us," rather than working "for us".
