I want to tell you about myself and how I got started in this business. I am a senior marketing executive for a leading internet marketing company in the United States, specializing in e-commerce and online marketing. My background is in marketing and communications and I have been at this for about four years.
I started in marketing as a sales assistant and then moved into direct marketing. I was also a product management assistant and was given the title of vice president of marketing in the company.
I have always been fascinated by marketing and I had a great time in marketing school. I started my career in marketing by working as a sales assistant, a job I love. However, after one year of sales assistant work, I decided that I wanted to be a marketing executive. I had always wanted to work in advertising, but I had a lot of experience in sales and marketing. Although I loved sales, it didn’t come easily to me.
I have to say this was a good decision. I worked in marketing for two years before I became a senior marketing executive. I was very fortunate because I could always make a lot of money in sales and marketing. However, my favorite part of marketing is being able to meet new people. Marketing is more than just selling and driving traffic, which is what I did the majority of my career. Marketing is a great way to meet new people, and to learn new things.
Sales people often come across as arrogant. You can’t argue with that, right? It’s true. We need to prove ourselves, and prove it to ourselves. It’s why I love going to networking events. To meet people who are selling the same product as you, is a great way to prove it to yourself.
I think that’s why I’m a former senior marketing executive. It’s why I’m a former senior marketing executive. I’m not just selling products, I’m selling the products I sell. I’ve been selling the same product for 20+ years now and I’m still learning and growing. I’m learning and growing because I’m making mistakes. I’m not perfect, but I’m trying to learn and grow from them.
At the same time that I’m learning and growing from the mistakes I make, I also have to keep a critical eye on the products I’m selling to get to the top of the game, because I know the bottom line of why I’m not perfect.
If you think you’re the smartest person in corporate America, you might not realize that you’re also the smartest person in corporate America. That’s because you’re not always the smartest person in the room either.
You need to be able to look at the bigger picture when making decisions, not just your own ego. As marketers, we should all learn to recognize and understand the needs, wants, and desires of our audience and then use those needs and wants to our fullest advantage. The best way to do that is to get them to tell you what they need and want.
For junior marketing pros like myself, it’s easy to think that we can just sell anything to anyone because we have the connections. However, we should never forget that we are an incredibly limited resource that we can only get so many of. What we sell us is a small subset of our entire customer base. If we don’t get the message, we won’t be able to sell it to the next person and we’ll become a dead end that nobody wants to be around.
