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.

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

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…

Twitter and Free Speech

It is a post from Jessica Wagner about Twitter and free speech. When the Internet first started taking prominence in the 1990's, a new vehicle for free speech was built. Starting in the 1980's, billion dollar multi-media companies had started accumulating large papers, television networks, and radio stations. Many people worried that big business would conglomerate and eliminate the free speech which the United States was built on. Because of the amalgamation of media, it became harder for individuals to get their voices heard through the use of mass media.

Creating a website, blog, or posting on a comment forum is now the standard by which to get your voice heard in American. With the super-advanced speed at which social media has entered our lives, it is easier than ever to take information, a thought, or an opinion and spread it throughout the entire country or world.

Recently, there has been a lot of controversy over the use of Twitter and the rights of free speech as they…
