Sales Experience

As a sales professional, Tamar started off as one of Mashable's first employees (#6!) who began working at the company when it was just a small start-up. She has worked on all behind-the-scenes elements, from communications requests to legal issues to customer support to sales/ad operations to business development to marketing initiatives. She wore every hat but editorial (but she did write some articles and even started freelancing again)! On the sales front, she did it all: sales development, proposals, client services, trafficking, invoicing, and even invoicing follow-ups.

 

Tamar has worked with all types of clients globally: nonprofits, charities, governmental agencies, startups, universities, insurance services, marketing software, B2B, B2C, media agencies, and Fortune 500 clients, among others. Her expertise lies in selling creative solutions, but also in client relations: she manages inbound sales, and has elected to be "on call" to screen through sales requests from morning until night, which gives clients the confidence that she is available to help at any time, and also keeps Mashable top of mind. As an amazing multitasker who is always able to put the client forward first, Tamar takes pride in how effective this real time communication has translated into customer loyalty and repeat business.

 

Publications

Before diving deep into sales, Tamar has established her online presence by writing for numerous blogs and media publications in a variety of fields, from tech to travel. These sites include:

A chunk of Tamar can be defined as "social media," and as such, Tamar is a member of just about every social network that has a name. She is an early adopter who likes to dive into social networks to explore marketing and sales opportunities, and to provide excellent customer service.
