Strict Schedule, Great Training, Brutal Cold Calling

Digital Media Consultant (Former Employee) Raleigh, NC

ProsGreat 4 week training course. Great for those who don't have any online marketing experience, but if you majored in it prepare to be bored.
Pay was ok, but you needed to be making at least 1-2 sales per week.

ConsStrict schedule. Have to come in to cold call from 8:00am-9:30am and also from 4:00pm-5:00pm. When you are not in the office, expected to be dropping in on prospective clients. Also, when you make a sale, the paperwork is VERY low-tech. You have to mail in the paperwork to the home office where they set up the website (which is VERY unattractive and hard for the client to update). Overall: Bad product that I felt guilty selling.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet the product to be something we can be proud of selling. Expedite the sign-up process by making it online and/or provide iPads to set up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been here for 4 months, and have had 4 different managers

    Digital Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Buffalo, NY

    I have been working at LocalEdge for less than a year


    Pros: The Hearst Media name still carries a shred of respect.… Cons: I have been in a professional sales environment for the last 12 years, and was recruited heavily to join LocalEdge. I can honestly say… Advice to Senior Management: You honestly need a complete overhaul. Top to bottom. In this highly competitive digital age, your products alone don't cut it.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
