Looper Insights is a scale up in the Video on Demand (VoD) industry and we are growing fast. In the last 12 months our B2B cloud-based analytics software has been taken by some of the biggest names in the VoD sector. We have just scratched the surface of a huge untapped market.

Our product is an innovative and unique SaaS analytics solution, presenting data captured by our own hardware and software. We analyse product positioning for any app, content and streaming service shown in the digital User Interface (UI) of connected devices. Our product fulfils the needs of content marketeers for data on their products’ positioning and performance on each connected device.

Clients need visibility of their products to create promotions that drive their sales, views, customer acquisition and help reduce customer churn in the hyper competitive world of streaming services. We are currently the only service, globally, that provides this data.

We are the first mover in this new category and are enjoying a momentum of sales and interest from the biggest players in content and streaming services.

We have established data labs in London and Los Angeles to collect data and analyse insights on Film and TV placement for VoD stores across territories. Our software service provides data for marketeers to get full visibility on the correlation between promotions, sales spikes, ROI on promotions and insights they can use to plan strategies and tactics which improve their overall ROI. Our clients include VoD stores, Film/TV Studios and Broadcasters.

The Role

We’re seeking an experienced and hungry sales executive who has ambitions to master a virgin market from the ground level. This is initially a clearly focussed role: take qualified leads created by our Marketing or Business Development units, and convert them into long-term customer relationships, to a tightly defined timescale. The successful candidate must be a closer. Over a short time, we expect that the sales executive will also generate their own new leads.

We are first to the market with a new product, so a significant part of the job is an education piece. We need someone with proven experience in the sales process for B2B enterprise solutions where influencing key stakeholders has been a key challenge; our sales executive will bring learnings from that experience to help our prospective customers.

This is a huge opportunity to take advantage of our first-to-market position and we have an ambitious timetable for growth.

The key aspects of this role are:

  • Confidently presenting our solutions to prospective clients via online meeting and conducting live demos to qualified leads, expertly fielding questions from the audience
  • Managing multiple prospective customer relationships through all stages of the sales process
  • Mapping out prospective customers organisations identifying all key stakeholders and influencers
  • Identifying and navigating barriers and objections to sale
  • Applying an intelligent and adaptive sales approach for prospective customer types
  • Meeting and exceeding monthly sales targets in line with the company sales plan
  • Demonstrating the highest levels of professionalism and excellence at all touch points throughout the sales process
  • Managing the pipeline of multiple prospect customer relationships
  • Supporting the CEO in preparing, scheduling and hosting sales presentations and demonstrations as required
  • Prepare and participate in weekly sales meetings, articulating market feedback to management
  • Continuously learning and developing new, creative sales techniques and strategies
  • Work closely with the Marketing team to help establish tools and collateral for both prospects and existing clients
  • Successfully manage the handover of new clients to the Customer Success team
  • Record all activities in our CRM package, Pipedrive
