How Has WebStrategies Fared During Covid?
We get asked this question a lot, and understandably so. Changing jobs during uncertain times takes some courage, but rest assured you are making a safe bet choosing to join WebStrategies. Here's why...
- We still managed to grow in 2020. In fact, our client retention IMPROVED during Covid-19
- We never laid off a single employee due to the impact of Covid-19 on our business
- We are experiencing record growth in 2021, largely due to the extraordinary efforts of our team members in 2020 to retain customers, build trust, and grow our reputation in the marketplace.
Why Is This Job Open?
Because we want to keep growing, and to achieve those long-term growth goals, we need more talented and driven sales people to make it a reality. You'll work within a sophisticated and contemporary sales organization and be taught by the best.
What's The WebStrategies Culture Like?
As a 'people first' organization, culture is extremely important to us. We recognize how a toxic culture can create a miserable experience for an employee, so we protect it at all costs.
Our culture is steeped in our core values of GEEAR: Growth, Essentialism, Empathy, Accountability, and Right. Our people are focused on personal and professional growth, they focus on the essentials, they are empathetic towards others, they take accountability and ownership, and they do what's right and in the best interest of our clients.
Our culture is compassionate and team-oriented. We don't tolerate any "throat stomping" or other negative behavior that impacts someone's experience here.
That's why our employees rave about our culture 👇👇👇
- At least 2 years of success advising and selling into the B2B space. Those with experience in professional services selling succeed far faster than those with experience in a transactional sales environment. We provide long-term, strategic business solutions, not one-time products and services.
- Experience in a marketing agency or other professional services type firm is desired but not necessarily required.
- Success at prospecting into a target market to fill your sales pipeline
- Creative, forward-thinking self-starter with an attention to detail and drive to produce consistent and quality work
- Superior written and verbal communications skills, coupled with highly developed interpersonal skills
- High EQ (emotional intelligence)
- Highly organized with excellent time management skills
How to stand out
We want to know what types of influencers or publications you follow to improve yourself as a professional, marketer, or person. If you submit your application and don't include examples or acknowledge a lack of them, we'll just assume you didn't read this far into the job description (p.s. this is a great way not to stand out).
We are proud to offer a very competitive compensation and benefits package, which we'll share with you during the interview process.

We were voted one of the Top Places to Work in Virginia and one of the Fastest Growing Companies in Richmond each of the last four years.
