Is Marketing an entrepreneurs career?
Im super interested in internet marketing and I plan on getting a degree in it. I love Marketing, PR, and Advertising so I want to go into marketing but I also want to be an entrepreneur. So I would like to know is marketing truly an entrepreneurs degree? What can I do with marketing? Id love to open an online mass marketing company so I can live where ever I want. Please give advice, insight and ideas. No links to anything, that’s just spam. Would super love insight from those who work in Marketing and Internet Marketing. Thanks!
The best way to take advantage of marketing as an entrepreneur is to join a Network Marketing company. Let me tell you why? When you join a company who has a global presence, you can build your business in any of the countries their doing business in. You can live in those countries or just make money in them. As an independent distributor, which is the title they give you until you become a ranking distributor, you don’t have to have or carry any inventory. You won’t have employees or need a store front. You won’t have to have employees. The company you represent will take care of all the shipping and receiving, do all the accounting and pay you a commission based off of the customers you acquire. I happen to represent a healthy coffee company and have found it to be the easiest to help people make quick and strong long term income because there is very little selling involved. 80% of the populous already consumes coffee and so when I give them a free sample, they get hooked on the product. This creates a residual income stream for the life of the customer. I wish you the best on your quest.
2002 Marketing degree. Never had a marketing job would like to use my degree.?
I got my marketing degree in 2002. I am working as an Administrative Assistant/ Coordinator since I got my degree but now I am thinking about looking for a job in the marketing field. My degree is 5years old, should I go back to school and update some of my marketing classes or should I get certificated in different marketing subjects.
If certificated is the way to go what programs should I look for.
The only thing that has changed in marketing since 2002 is the overwhelming use of on-line advertising… Otherwise everything is the same. If you want to take some courses it would be better if it is something related to ‘Internet marketing’ – both for refreshment and learning something new.
Other than that i would recommend going for project management PMP certification – you already have administrative coordinator experience and one PMP will place you as qualified in management
Ah. I forgot graphic design – it is interesting and cool – if you like it of course – especially computer aided graphic design.
Good luck with your career choice.
