Advertising representatives at Eagle’s nine publications assist businesses in communities they serve to promote their offerings and increase their sales. That’s a given. But for eight hours on January 15th, they all hit the streets in their own communities with their own sales promotion: selling advertising spaces of half-or-full-page size at reduced rates.
The enthusiasm was contagious and the competition fierce! When all was said and done the final numbers looked like this – – 64 full page ads and 357 half page ads were sold company-wide.
The final tally recognized the top sales person at each publication:
Isaac Maiden, Polk County Itemizer-Observer, Dallas
Teresa Myers, The Chronicle, Omak
Megan Slenning, Hood River News
Elaine Bakke, White Salmon Enterprise
Marilyn Roth, The Dalles Chronicle
Tim Graff, Daily Sun News, Sunnyside
Wendy Kunkel, Idaho County Free Press, Grangeville
Sherree Fisher, Moneysaver, Lewiston
Jo Schechter, NW Boomer & Senior News, Salem
Cross-sells of ads into sister publications earned recognition also for Elaine, Marilyn, Jo, Sherree and for Deb Jones, Hood River; Tonya Schroeder and Ray Swift, The Dalles, and Bob Vassar, Moneysaver.
Congratulations to Sherree Fisher of the Moneysaver! She led the field of 27 Eagle sales reps who brought in ads during the 8-hour sale.
WAY TO GO!!!!
