Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Chris asks…

i’ve looked for a job all over the internet, but i have a bachelors and all the jobs are useless, now what?

hi, i’ve been to monster, careerbuilder, hotjobs, and craigslist and no luck pertaining to me having a bachelors, specifically a bachelors in business, specializing in marketing IMC. i’ve been looking about two to three times a week and none of the jobs are good — they’re all implicitly shady, i just feel it. what can i do to find a job without looking at these sites? thank you 🙂
sorry for my brief and unclear explanation of my experience. by shady, i mean, just about all of the company profiles seem to primarily utilize cold calling, door to door, or dirty sales techniques to exist. i got a degree so i don’t have to do that. i have 2 years experience in customer service, but that’s all. i’m 23 and just graduated a month ago. thanks all 🙂

Get off the internet.

Most people do not find jobs through the job web sites like monster etc.

I work as an adjuster. I have marketing reps with vendors (restoration companies, rental companies etc) that we use visit me often. There job is to try to get me to use them – instead of the other guy.

Sure, they post ads on the internet and in industry publications.

But they get my business, because they come into my office an meet me. They bring managment to my office to meet me. So that if I have a problem – I know the manager and can call them to get the problem solved. They get my business, not because of the internet ads, but because of the interpersonal relationship they take the time to develop with me.

All job hunting is …..is marketing. But instead of selling a service you are selling yourself.

So, if you are selling yourself… Why would you hang everything on the internet – moster.com, careerbuilder.com. I don’t have marketing degree….but I doubt a sucessful marketing strategy relies only on 1 soure.

So, keep searching the internet and the sunday paper. Also search state and federal goverment web sites. Many communities have their own career finder website for local companies- search those.

Go meet and register with every employment agency you can. You can get some temp work – so the money will help. And many companies do not post job openings– but use temp agencies to screen potential employees.

Join the local Jaycees. Get to know people. Let them know you are looking for a job. Many people find jobs b/c they knew someone at the company. Develop a network.

Get involved in volunteer work. You may meet someone at that volunteer fundraiser that is a potential job connection. And, since you are not working – you have the time and it helps to build your resume. Pick something you are interested in and get involved. The only thing it will cost you is time– and you have that.

Let every friend and family member know you are looking for a job and are open to anything.

Don’t restrict yourself. There are way more marketing majors than marketing jobs. So, be willing to look at any job you qualify for. You may find that you end up in an industry that you never thought you would be in – but love.

Start sending out resumes and cover letters. Make sure there are no mistakes in either. They must be perfect or they get tossed.

Make sure to have a resume that applies to the job you are looking for. Don’t send a resume to an insurance company to apply for an adjusters position with an objective that says you are looking for a job in the marketing field.

Be sure that your resume stresses the experience/education that applies to that job.
An insurance company will want to see a 4 year college degree and good customer service skills, time management, organization. So, make sure your resume reflects those values. But this may not be what a marketing position wants — they may be more interested in your education.

If you don’t have experience in a specific field, you usually need a contact in the company. So really “network”. If the company has an opening, the fact that an employee recommended you will greatly increase your chance of getting an interview. It won’t get you the job (you still have to do that in the interview) but it will go a long way to getting you the interview.

I have a history degree. When I got out of college, I went to work as an assistant manager in a retail store. I had a family connection. I did that for a year and got some good customer service experince and a good dose of “grow up”. I then got on with a major insurance company. (Again, I had another family member that worked with that company in a different state). I was hired to work as an insurance adjuster.

I have been working as an adjuster for 12 years now. I’m in a profession where I can take care of myself and support a family. When I was in college – could I have told you this would be the profession I’d be in? No.

So, be open to any opportunity that presents itself and start developing and working your network. A company is not going to just show up at your door begging you to work for them…..you have to work hard and find that job.

Good Luck.

Positions In Marketing?

Okay I’m currently working on my AA Degree in Business. But what I really want to get into is Marketing/Advertising. So far all I know about positions in Marketing is a Marketing Executive. Can anyone please tell me what are the positions in Marketing/Advertising starting from the bottom all the way to the top!!

US Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook:
Advertising, Marketing, Promotions, Public Relations, and Sales Managers
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos020.htm

Advertising managers. Advertising managers direct a firm’s or group’s advertising and promotional campaign. They can be found in advertising agencies that put together advertising campaigns for clients, in media firms that sell advertising space or time, and in companies that advertise heavily. They work with sales staff and others to generate ideas for the campaign, oversee a creative staff that develops the advertising, and work with the finance department to prepare a budget and cost estimates for the campaign.

Marketing managers. Marketing managers work with advertising and promotion managers to promote the firm’s or organization’s products and services. With the help of lower level managers, including product development managers and market research managers, marketing managers estimate the demand for products and services offered by the firm and its competitors and identify potential markets for the firm’s products. .

Promotions managers. Promotions managers direct promotions programs that combine advertising with purchasing incentives to increase sales. Often, the programs are executed through the use of direct mail, inserts in newspapers, Internet advertisements, in-store displays, product endorsements, or other special events.

Public relations managers. Public relations managers plan and direct public relations programs designed to create and maintain a favorable public image for the employer or client. For example, they might write press releases or sponsor corporate events to help maintain and improve the image and identity of the company or client.

In large organizations, public relations managers may supervise a staff of public relations specialists. (See the Handbook statement on public relations specialists.) They also work with advertising and marketing staffs to make sure that the advertising campaigns are compatible with the image the company or client is trying to portray. In addition, public relations managers may handle internal company communications, such as company newsletters, and may help financial managers produce company reports. They may assist company executives in drafting speeches, arranging interviews, and maintaining other forms of public contact; oversee company archives; and respond to requests for information. Some of these managers handle special events as well, such as the sponsorship of races, parties introducing new products, or other activities that the firm supports in order to gain public attention through the press without advertising directly.

Sales managers. Sales managers direct the distribution of the product or service to the customer. They assign sales territories, set sales goals, and establish training programs for the organization’s sales representatives. (See the Handbook statement on sales representatives, wholesale and manufacturing).

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Strategies

Sharon asks…

I have entrusted to take a class on general marketing, What are the techniques of general marketing?

I wish to know about the tricks, techniques, ideas and methods to promot the small scale products in to market?

barry0912 answers:

For a marketing plan to be successful, the mix of Product, Price, Promotion, and Placement must reflect the wants and desires of the consumers in the target market. Trying to convince a market segment to buy something they don’t want is extremely expensive and seldom successful. Marketers depend on marketing research, both formal and informal, to determine what consumers want and what they are willing to pay for. Marketers hope that this process will give them a sustainable competitive advantage. Marketing management is the practical application of this process.

Most companies today have a customer orientation (also called customer focus). This implies that the company focuses its activities and products on customer needs. Generally there are two ways of doing this: the customer-driven approach and the product innovation approach.

In the consumer-driven approach, consumer wants are the drivers of all strategic marketing decisions. No strategy is pursued until it passes the test of consumer research. Every aspect of a market offering, including the nature of the product itself, is driven by the needs of potential consumers. The starting point is always the consumer. The rationale for this approach is that there is no point spending R&D funds developing products that people will not buy. History attests to many products that were commercial failures in spite of being technological breakthroughs.

The next big thing is a concept in marketing that refers to a product or idea that will allow for a high amount of sales for that product and related products. Marketers believe that by finding or creating the next big thing they will spark a cultural revolution that results in this sales increase.

In a product innovation approach, the company pursues product innovation, then tries to develop a market for the product. Product innovation drives the process and marketing research is conducted primarily to ensure that a profitable market segment(s) exists for the innovation. The rationale is that customers may not know what options will be available to them in the future so we should not expect them to tell us what they will buy in the future. It is claimed that if Thomas Edison depended on marketing research he would have produced larger candles rather than inventing light bulbs. Many firms, such as research and development focused companies, successfully focus on product innovation. Many purists doubt whether this is really a form of marketing orientation at all, because of the ex post status of consumer research. Some even question whether it is marketing.

Diffusion of innovations research explores how and why people adopt new products, services and ideas.

A relatively new form of marketing uses the Internet and is called internet marketing or more generally e-marketing, affiliate marketing or online marketing. It typically tries to perfect the segmentation strategy used in traditional marketing. It targets its audience more precisely, and is sometimes called personalized marketing or one-to-one marketing.

Marketing is an ongoing process of planning and executing of the marketing mix (Product, Price, Place, Promotion) of products, services or ideas to create exchange between individuals and organizations.

Marketing tends to be seen as a creative industry, which includes advertising, distribution and selling. It is also concerned with anticipating the customers’ future needs and wants, which are often discovered through market research.

Essentially, marketing is the process of creating or directing an organization to be successful in selling a product or service that people not only desire, but are willing to buy.

Therefore good marketing must be able to create a “proposition” or set of benefits for the end customer that delivers value through products or services.

Its specialist areas include:

advertising and branding
communications
database marketing
direct marketing
event organization
global marketing
international marketing
internet marketing
industrial marketing
market research
public relations
retailing
search engine marketing
marketing strategy
marketing plan

barry0912 answers:

To make serious money self employed you have to become famous in your market

Learn how to write press releases Then do a bit of charity work helping someone fix their computer Then write a press release and send it to the local paper
Remember this item should be news worthy and have an interesting photo

I once had a two page spread in our local paper worth thousands in advertising
and a 2 minute feature on regional BBC TV news hitting millions of potential customers

You may also try a marketing network These are usually breakfast meetings where local traders promote you to their customers and you do likewise to yours

Remember that relying only on word of mouth is a dangerous marketing tactic as in a few months your customers will find someone else to talk about Your work will dry up and you will then blame the economy or something…
