Captiveyes Advertising Sales Intern Program
The Captiveyes Advertising Sales Intern Program is a great way to practice and drive home the skills you have already learned, and to add to your knowledge under the guidance of an experienced sales team. You’ll learn the ins and outs of the advertising business – a global industry that provides services that are fundamental to the success of just about every other business.
You will participate in daily sales meetings, get weekly training about products and sales techniques, and be able to get all of your questions answered as things arise that you need help to understand.To help you get a better idea about the advertising opportunities Captiveyes offers, here are impact videos for two of our most popular products:

- Indoor Digital Billboards: https://vimeo.com/164718996
Another Captiveyes advertising product is our network of WiFi hotspots that are strategically located throughout Tallahassee. While the WiFi service itself is now offered by our subsidiary, Bloom Intelligence, Captiveyes offers advertisers the opportunity to reach people when they are logging in to use the Bloom Intelligence WiFi system at local businesses.
Here is a short impact video about WiFi Hotspots. Although the focus of this video is on how the businesses who have our WiFi systems use their data and analytics, rather than on the advertising, this will give you a good idea about how our WiFi product works: https://vimeo.com/164718996
