I am a marketing manager.
I have been in the field for nearly 25 years.
I have spent the last 6 years as a professional digital marketing professional, where I have worked with companies like, Google, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.
As a marketer, I believe in a customer first approach.
That means that when I say, ‘I’m here to help you’, I mean it.
It is not about me.
The way I see it is, I need to understand the needs and concerns of the customers, and the brands I work with, so that I can give them the best product, service, and customer experience possible.
This is where the internet comes in.
With the internet, I can go to my own website and get a quote from an agency.
Or, I could go to Google and look for a business online that has my exact keywords.
What I have learned is that you can use the internet to reach customers, or get a business off the ground, in just a matter of days.
For example, I recently did a survey on how to do a better job of finding marketing leads.
In just over two weeks, I received nearly 300 leads, from over 250 different companies.
Many of the companies didn’t even have a name or email address.
But there was one company that had my exact keyword and I was able to send them a call to get their business.
Of course, it was a very unique and unique situation, but it’s one that I will always remember for the rest of my life.
There is so much to learn from these people that I met, and it’s what I will continue to be a great asset to as I continue to grow as a digital marketing manager and the people that work with me.
The next time you are in the market, ask yourself, ‘What would I do with my time if I had a company to work for?’.
It’s time to become more proactive and ask yourself that question.
