A Day in the Life of an Industrious Area Sales Lead 

A fast-paced position that requires creative problem solving and a strong attention to detail, no two days are ever the identical for an Industrious Area Sales Lead. But here are a few events that could fill up your day.

In the morning, your first meeting of the day is an in-person tour with a high-growth tech company’s CEO. She’s interested in a 10-desk office, and is particularly keen to learn more about our health and safety policy, as well as the speed and security of our WiFi. 

Lucky for her, you are able to answer all her questions on the spot and it’s a roaring success!

After lunch, you keep your eyes on the prize.

Your next meeting is with our listing brokers to review their pipelines. We’re about to open a new location next month and we still need a big push to hit our opening occupancy target.

With two hours blocked on your calendar to review your pipeline, you start by following up on last week’s tours to try and close those sales. Then it’s time to fill up your tour schedule for later in the week. Thanks to our Business Development team, you have 10 new hot leads to pursue — better make them count.

Once you’ve organized your pipeline — hopefully with a spring in your step after closing that big deal — you meet with the Community Manager at one of your locations. You’re planning an event together for local business leaders to raise awareness about Industrious and need to confirm logistics and attendance numbers. 

Finally, your day ends by meeting with your Regional Sales Manager to review your sales pipeline and forecast — and of course, to celebrate all your big wins throughout the day.

Sound like the perfect day to you? Apply now.

“That could mean doubling down on calling leads, working on follow-ups, meeting with a few brokers during in person tours, or working closely with your unit ops partners that day — all while enjoying member benefits like daily breakfast, craft coffee, and charcuterie on location.” 

And that’s just the beginning. Area Sales Leads at Industrious will also enjoy unique opportunities and benefits such as:

  • Ability to grow your skills and experience in a flexible real estate market
  • Experience with a fast growing start-up with opportunities for growth
  • Ability to network with some of the most prominent commercial real estate firms in the market (CBRE, JLL, Cushman & Wakefield — to name a few)
  • Fun company and team culture that is always welcoming, inclusive, and motivating.
  • Weekly happy hours, quarterly connection events, and team recognition to celebrate the creative solutions you bring to the table.

What are signs I’d be a good fit for this position? 

First and foremost, you are energized by selling and closing deals – this is what gets you out of bed in the morning! 

Some of Industrious’ highest performing Area Sales Lead have experience in retail and hospitality sales, working with the likes of AKA Hotels, Lululemon and BMW, which has taught them how to foster strong connections and relationships. Other high performers come from direct sales organizations such as Yelp and Doordash, and have experience managing large pipelines and high daily activity in calls and emails.

“The best ASL has a combination of the two, and uses previous experience in speaking toward products and conquering objections to find the best solutions for new members,” White says.

A few more signs you’d be a good fit for the team:

  • You are a self-starter, solution-oriented, and never shy away from a learning moment.
  • You think of creative ways on how to drive sales in your areas and know how to collaborate closely with those in your area to do so
  • You are confident in your sales skills and look to get leads through your sales pipeline swiftly and efficiently

“If you are a hungry sales individual that works well with others and loves having fun while winning, look no further,” says Industrious Head of Sales Sham Desai. “We are looking for sales people who pay close attention to detail, are creative when it comes to providing solutions and can own the sales pipeline.”

A few other key indicators that you have what it takes to be a successful Area Sales Lead are:
