Position Summary
Hours: 8:00-3:00 pm
Are you early in your career and someone who thrives on having probing conversations with prospective customers?  Would you like to see how Marketing and Sales work together to ensure acquisition optimization?  Do you want to work to be the first point of contact for new prospects at Staples Business Advantage?  We’re looking for a Part-Time Marketing Lead Development Specialist responsible to: 
1.  Phone qualify new Leads from the “Become A Customer” and other queues as needed to define new business opportunities
2.  Understand potential pain points of the prospective clients
3.  Determine if Staples Business Advantage can meet their needs
4.  Pass qualified, curated leads to a B2B business development manager in the sales group to open and onboard the account
As a Staples Business Advantage Marketing Lead Development Specialist, you are a master of building a pipeline of prospective customers. You love customer conversations and are passionate about helping to address the needs of our B2B buyers. A fundamental part of your job would be to speak with prospective customers over the phone and determine which prospects are ready to engage with a B2B business development rep immediately; if they would benefit from a participating in a nurture program a little longer; or are truly not a valid prospect for the B2B division rep supported programs. 
To do this will require you research accounts, weed out fraud potential, identify key players, generate interest, and successfully navigate and answer the prospects initial questions and possible obstacles.
While you will work closely with net new prospects and the hand-off process to both inside and outside sales professionals, this is a marketing role and you will not be travelling to meet prospects in person.
