About Us

Position Available

Advertising Sales Person: (Western MA and surrounding areas)

We are a highly successful, well-established, online cultural and lifestyle magazine that dominates our areas of interest based in Western MA, Litchfield County in CT and in Columbia and Dutchess counties NY.

Our readers and advertisers have a deep connection with us and we continue growing the number of people who read and rely on us. We update our site with in-depth stories and articles several times a week as well as posting regularly on social media and for many people we have become a trusted part of their community. This year we launched a highly successful app for Android, iPhones and iPads—-and we are about to launch 3 more. This means that we are read by locals, second homeowners and now by visitors to our region. Advertisers needing to reach these groups really do benefit by working with us.

We are looking for a part-time sales person who can work with the many of the cultural organizations and businesses in our area who would benefit from advertising with us. We anticipate growing advertising sales rapidly over the next 12 months as our readers come from a demographic that is hard to reach using other media.

We expect that the successful candidate will have had experience with marketing and advertising sales—preferably in our area and he or she will be working closely with senior staff to develop relationships with advertisers.

The job has excellent potential and remuneration is negotiable depending on experience.

If you are interested please send a detailed resume. Please be aware that we will be replying to only those applicants we would like to interview.
•      Location: Western MA and surrounding areas
•      Compensation: based on revenue generated and experience.

Please reply with a cover letter and your resume to:

“I’m in the town of Northeast, between Pine Plains and Millerton, and on the weekend I will travel up to 45 minutes in any direction for music, good food or other interesting ‘goings on.’ I don’t know what possessed you to cover points of interest for us tri-staters….but it was a stroke of BRILLIANCE. I look forward to your e-mail every Friday to discover the few things that I haven’t been able to pick up in the Taconic papers. You’ve provided a real service! Thanks!—Madelon Sann, New York City
