    I worked at N2 Publishing

    Pros

    If you are a salesman then this company is a great opportunity for you to control your own schedule and make as much money as you can. The leaders are good, Christian men who are honest and will help you to succeed. Their product is a great way for businesses to advertise to elite homeowners. They have a national network of successful area directors who can testify to the great opportunity N2 can provide. The best reason to work is the flexibility in your schedule. You work whenever you want. You can take vacation whenever you want and work only the amount of hours that you need in order to make the money that you need for that month.

    Cons

    The company is rather new in the advertising business and they are still refining their operations. At my time of employment, there were no benefits offered to employees as you basically operated independent of corporate. You must have a background in sales, preferably in advertising or marketing, to succeed with this company. Another tough thing about working at N2 is that your peers are spread around the country and it is tough for some people to work completely by themselves. The training at the time of my employment was well intended, but not nearly in depth enough for a new salesman to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would focus on hiring sales people to start opening territories and I would invest more resources into the ongoing training of employees. I would try to streamline processes that take up a lot of time for the area directors such as editing, phone calls, etc. and make use of a central phone center.

    Former Employee - Area Director

    I worked at N2 Publishing as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The main thing to realize here is that you are working a business. You are not trying to become some glorified committed employee. No one is going to micro-manage you and you in all senses of the word have to be a self-starter.

    Once you develop your business, you hire your own staff and you have as much control as you would want.

    The income opportunity can be ridiculous.

    The top guys are making 400k+ and they are working 35-40 hour weeks. This is not an exaggeration or overstatement. This is also not some crazy abnormality.

    People take vacations when they want, and do whatever they want, so long as their business doesn't fall apart.

    Anyone that builds their business and doesn't take 4-6 months off after they hit the six figure mark should be making 200k+ in 2-3 years. One guy hit 12k/month after 3 months and was at 25k/month by the 9 month mark. Who knows what he's making now. He had an average closing percentage and an average sale amount. He was just consistent.

    The average 1 year Area Director is approaching or surpassing 100k/year, and it's contracted revenue with ad clients, so in a sense it's residual.

    There are many practices in place that are evolving, making it easier to to make even more income.

    Cons

    The only downside is figuring it out for 3-4 months while you develop your first publication. Once that's done, there shouldn't be that many complaints.

    Usually anyone that leaves just doesn't want to be in business for themselves that much or doesn't like the world of advertising.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You got to get the mid managers (Executive Sales Directors) to have more time to help new Area Directors. It's the most crucial element to market growth, bar none.

    No other one thing comes close to this one needed thing.
