What advice would you give someone going to an interview for a position in Advertising Sales?

I will interview with a successful direct mail marketing company looking for an Advertising Salesperson tomorrow...Any good words of wisdom? I think asking for tips from others is an excellent way to improve my ability to impress an interviewer I have a B.S. in Mass Communications with an emphasis in advertising. I am fresh out of college, have excellent references from my professors but no outside sales experience. I have worked at my campus' bookstore (sales associate/receiving) and at a hotel front desk. The company is very successful. I look forward to receiving their mailings because they are packed with coupons for restaurants, hotels, etc. They have expanded all over two states (starting from a small market.)
