Businesses have long recognized the value of hiring a marketing manager to run their social media marketing campaigns.
But, according to a survey from the Marketing Institute, only 25 percent of marketers in 2015 said they were satisfied with the job they were doing, which means the majority of companies still have to rely on hiring a product manager to manage their social network marketing campaigns (PMs).
The survey found that 73 percent of those surveyed said they had to make decisions about their social platforms on a daily basis, and 80 percent said they felt like they were constantly working to stay ahead of their competitors and the industry in general.
In addition, 73 percent said that the social media platform was a “big part” of their work.
Asking if you can quit your job and start your own business and make money on your own is an excellent way to make a career change, said Kristin L. Dabrowski, Marketing Director of the Marketing Practice at The Marketing Institute.
It’s important to understand that there is no magic number of hours to spend on a job, so you need to be willing to change your job, L.D.D.’s advice to marketers said.
“In general, it’s not that you can’t do it,” Dabramski said.
Rather, she said, you need a solid plan for how you’ll spend your time if you do decide to quit your current job.
L.L.D., a marketing professor at Northeastern University in Boston, told The Huffington Post that many people who quit their job, whether it’s because they had health issues or were laid off due to the recession, were looking for something else that paid better and was easier to manage.
“If you’re looking to quit something, it is a great idea to take time to think about what you want to do with your life,” she said.
Aspiring entrepreneurs have also found it helpful to figure out what kind of career path they want to pursue.
For example, Rachel C. Dutkiewicz, a professor of marketing at New York University, said the first step to finding your own path is to start by talking to people.
If you’re still undecided about what career you want, Dutkos says to start with something like a business school. “
This may mean starting small, talking to the person who knows you, or perhaps going to a networking event where you can network with other entrepreneurs,” she added.
If you’re still undecided about what career you want, Dutkos says to start with something like a business school.
“I would think a business degree would be a good first step,” she told HuffPost.
Laskowski suggested that you should think about how your goals and values align with other people’s goals and interests.
“For me personally, I’ve always had this really positive outlook on life,” Dutkowski said.
She said that if you are passionate about something and are passionate enough to work toward it, you can have success.
“But if you’re not passionate, you’re just going to burn out,” she suggested.
She also suggested taking a course to become more creative and learn more about the business side of things.
Dutskowskis advice was similar to Laskowski’s: it’s important not to get too caught up in your current position.
“The key is to make the best decisions for your career and not to settle for a low salary,” she advised.
“Start small, but really work on getting more and more involved in the company and really learn how the company works.”
Laskyks advice also came from a different perspective.
“You have to think critically about what your role is and how you fit into the company culture,” she explained.
Laskingowskis said it’s good to know how people perceive your role, but also how they perceive your job.
“Sometimes, it can be a little hard to know what your job is because the culture of the company is different,” she noted.
“And I know people who think that they are a marketing person, but they don’t really know their role,” she continued.
“They don’t know if they have to be a marketing director, and they don: What are their goals?
Are they going to be part of the sales team or a marketing consultant?
So, it takes a lot of work to be sure.”
If you want the best possible career path for your dream job, Daskowskys advice is to find a company with a team that is focused on the business of marketing.
“That means having a good team, working collaboratively, and having a vision for the business,” she recommended.
“To me, this means that you’re going to have to figure this out for yourself, and not a manager or a sales person,” she concluded.
Daskys advice was also echoed by former President and CEO
