CMB Regional Account Manager

History

CMB is providing an alternative to setting up your own company by a work–life balance, which is the balance that an individual needs between time allocated for work and other aspects of life. Many small companies find it very stressful, working long hours, little holiday, cashflow problems and almost impossible to grow. Never mind the accounts, VAT returns and endless forms to fill in.

How it Works

You spend your time building up prospects, creating sales and then servicing those accounts. No different to an Account Manager working for a marketing company. The main difference is you're working for yourself on a self employed basis, so hours and holiday to suit you. So you'll receive payment on all new and repeat orders at the same rate, which means your monthly sales will be a balance of new business and repeat orders.

Partnership

Even though this is a self employed position, CMB sees this as a 50/50 Partnership, as both parties will reply on each other to succeed. This means all items sold including services will receive 50% of the profit. So honesty is the most important aspect of this relationship, as we reply on you going through us for all services and goods and we'll provide you truthful information on the costs.

Support

The CMB support team will help you be successful by allowing you to carry on with customer relationship building and selling as we'll do the rest.
1.) Zoho CRM - we use this platform to management your prospects and customers. This also forms part of CMB marketing strategy.
2.) Marketing Strategy - Before a customer becomes a client there has to be an average 7 forms of contacts, either by telephone, meeting, email, mailshots, etc. CMB marketing team will use your prospects and customer details from Zoho CRM during this process.
3.) You'll be allocated an assistant, who will provide your quotes, process your orders just the same as you worked within an organisation.
4.) Provide a VOIP phone system that you can call the prospects from, link to the office together with a headset. It will link with your Zoho CRM system, click on the phone number and your phone will dial.
5.) Often said it's better to create your own database, but if required CMB will supply a database for your area to help you get started.

What Money I'm I Likely to Earn?

The obvious answer would be it depends how good you're at selling, together with the hours and hard work you put in. Whatever you sell it will be 50% of the profit, this is also the same amount for repeat orders so it's important to build up your clients.
Most orders are marked-up by 55% therefore retaining 35%, so every £1000 the profit will be £350 so you earn £175. A full time Account Manager over time would be expected to sell between £5,000 -£7,000 gross profit a month.
