Top Types of Jobs You Can Look Forward to in Marketing

Marketing as a career is extremely rewarding, more so in today’s world where competition is at its highest and rival companies are constantly looking for ways to put another company down. Therefore, exploring marketing as a career option can be widely rewarding for you. Essentially, as a marketer, your job is to put the products and services offered by your company in good light so that it appeals to the customers and it instils a sense of credibility in your company. Being in the marketing profession may seem like a fairly easy task, however, there are several aspects that you must consider, strong communication skills being one of them. However, when you are confident that a career in marketing is your calling, you should then look at the following options that can ensure a lucrative career in this field. While you are working this job, you could also consider signing up for part time mba courses to increase your chances at a better future in marketing.

1. Marketing researcher:

Working as a market researcher is one of the most common career options that you can consider taking up. As the name suggests, the main role of a market researcher is to research the market, mainly to help them understand the consumer behaviour. It is this consumer behaviour that will give them an understanding of how a particular product or service is fairing in the market and what changes need to be made in the corresponding advertising strategies. The most common activities involved for a market researcher include taking surveys, conducting in-depth interviews with the customers or more precisely, the target audience. Essentially, when it comes to market research, the entire job title revolves around the appropriate use of statistics and in-depth understanding on how the human behaviour works.



2. Managing a product and eventually, a brand:

When it comes to the management of a product, or a brand at large, it is very important to have definitive marketing plans in place. This is what a brand manager or product manager does. The brand or product manager is at a supervisor level and is essentially responsible to keep track of the marketing activities, statistics and also the research. Coming up with novel and innovative promotion strategies is also what this job position demands. Usually, a company producing products or services hires a brand manager within the company as opposed to taking help from an ad agency.



3. Working in an advertising agency:

If you wish to get involved in a marketing career in the form of advertising, the best thing that you can consider doing is apply at an advertising agency. Essentially, an advertising agency consists of a marketing research department, which you can form part of. Besides, if working at an ad agency is not something that you’d like, and then you can consider applying at a public relations firm as well. You can always take up part time mba in marketing so that you get a fair idea of where your interests lie.



4. A career in merchandising is pretty lucrative:

This is also a very popular career choice that you can benefit from. Essentially, you get to decide the kind of merchandise that will form part of the shelves. They are loaded with multiple responsibilities like gauging and keeping track of their competitors along with dealing with the suppliers. They are also required to research the market effectively and decide whether an advertisement mirrors the personality of the product that they are trying to sell. Therefore, you can always fall back on merchandising as a reliable and stable career option.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

A Peek at the Google Music Beta Install Process

This is a guest post by Nadia Jones.

Those of you in the United States might have noticed that Google Music Beta has started to get some buzz on the internet. Invites have gone out wave after wave, and as one of the people to get an early look at the application, I have to say that it's definitely worth your time to get in on this as soon as possible. I've used it for a few days and can say that it's greatly simplified my music experience. I no longer have to worry about which songs are on my work computer or home computer, nor do I have to carry around my iPod and my Android, as I can access my Google music on the phone as well.

Perhaps the greatest thing about Google Music Beta is that the install process hardly takes any time at all, which is what we've come to expect from the people at Google.

Once you get the invite in your email, click on the link and Google will take you through a series of installation steps: you will electronically accept some terms, install t…

Motorola Droid 4 – The RAZR with a QWERTY

This is a guest post by Simon about Motorola Droid 4. After a bit of a slump when the first iPhone was launched, Motorola managed to pull itself back from the brink by releasing the Motorola Droid (also known as the Milestone in some markets). This highly popular Android device came with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and has been one of the most popular phone brands in recent years.

Motorola has since produced 3 Droid phones, although only 2 of these made an appearance outside of the US. Now the company is set to launch its fourth Droid, which builds on earlier versions while also sharing many design characteristics with the new RAZR.

Like the RAZR, the Droid 4 is powered by a dual core 1.2GHz chip with 1GB RAM, and comes with full LTE support. The screen is a little smaller than the RAZR's, measuring just 4 inches instead of 4.3, but the phone does come with a physical QWERTY keyboard, a major factor in the popularity and success of earlier Droid phones.

The Droid 4 also sees an im…
