Congratulations to Mel Jackson on her promotion to District Manager of Northwest Florida!
Mel joined AMP in October of 2022. Before joining our ranks, she worked as a Regional Field Operations Manager for WaitrApp. In this role, she covered Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and South Carolina territories helping restaurants increase profits through the app. She brought a ton of sales and sales leadership experience to AMP, and with her proven history of building out new markets, we knew that success was in her future!
Two days after her first day of GSV training, she was on a plane heading to her first project of Lake Geneva, WI. She spent two weeks training alongside a number of amazing leaders. Leaving home and staying in a hotel for twelve days of training is not an easy ask, and yet, she did it was a smile, a great attitude, a ton of determination, and commitment to mastering our sales process and the disciplines necessary within. In November, Mel was back in Florida working her first market of Pensacola, FL.
Since joining AMP, she’s averaged $17,389 in total monthly sales with $7,785 in OPTIMA™ and $9,605 in GSV. Mel moves quickly, averaging 16 digital accounts per month. She was honored as the Rep of the Region in December 2022, with a personal record breaking month of sales closing just under $25,000, including a high water mark day of $9,247 and 4 separate DNA. January was a culmination month! Mel reached 50 DNA accounts and tallied her best OPTIMA™ month since joining AMP. She finished the month with $18,768 – $12,423 of that being OPTIMA™ sales, and $6,345 in GSV sales. Mel puts in total effort to achieve her goals, often working Golden Hours and even closing a big sale on a Sunday. In fact, on a Sunday in February, she beat her previous record breaking single day of sales by selling $12,531 with 1 GSV sale along with 6 OPTIMA™ sales!
In addition to achieving her own personal sales objectives, Mel’s been spending time transitioning to help prepare for her leadership role. She’s spent time in the classroom connecting to product knowledge and sales tactics. Following classroom involvement, she’s been leading and building the digital expansion of her markets by conducting mentorship days and training days with her newest team members. Mel’s got big evolution goals for the market and has her sights set on building the top digital market in the company in 2023!
Mel grew up in Lake Charles, LA, and you can hear her Cajun dialect the instant you speak with her or hear her on our morning calls! From Louisiana, she made her way to Nashville and Charlotte before settling in her “happy place” in Florida, where she’s lived since 2021. Mel lives with her 8 ½ year old beloved dog Levi Jackson, a blue heeler that she “spoils rotten” with love and the occasional frosty paw ice cream treat. They enjoy daily walks and golf cart rides around her neighborhood. Mel’s daughter, Laiken, lives in Los Angeles, CA. She’s a fashion photographer working with LA JZ Record Label – Rock Nation, Saweetie, PJ Morton, and Harper Baazar Magazine. They love going to concerts together, and Mel will be visiting Laiken in May for the Shania Twain “Queen of Me” tour. In her free time, she enjoys attending church, reading, walks on the beach, hiking, and most of all, relaxing on her porch with Levi.
Congratulations, Mel, on this well-deserved promotion!
