When you look at financial services firms, the first thing that comes to mind is accounting, financial planning, legal and management consulting firms. Although the breadth of professional services firms is much greater than that and includes marketing and recruitment, it’s our financial and legal counterparts that really struggle to stand out from the crowd.

How to market a technology company in 2022

Atlanta has become one of the biggest hubs for technology companies in North America - with good reason. Not only is the city a great place to do business, it also has an abundance of talent, affordable real estate and cost of living.

With so many technology company startups, the need for out-of-the-box marketing solutions that help brands stand out from the crowd is heightened. "If you always do, what you've always done..." you may not have clients moving forward. 

When you go to college you learn two things 1) There’s a deadline for everything 2) If you start something, you need to finish it.

In truth, you learn a lot more than that, but these two points are a given. They also relate to life, work and for those Instagrammers, “living your best life”.

Each day I talk to entrepreneurs and business leaders. They tend to ‘like’ their marketing managers but there is one common thread that always comes out of their mouths. “I don’t know what they do and whether it works or not.”

For business leaders and entrepreneurs, uncertainty doesn’t sit well. It nags at them like this irritating voice in their head that never shuts up especially when sales are down, or everything isn’t going to plan.

Many entrepreneurs and business leaders do not function well in uncertain situations and find them stressful and distressing.

The past 18 months has been a blur for many of us, particularly if we have been working from home. Waking up each morning, brushing our teeth and hopping on a Zoom call usually takes us up until lunch. Then after a quick Netflix show and a few more Zoom meetings, it's time to try our skills in the kitchen.

Why marketers should be afraid for their jobs

Being afraid for your job can be deliberating. It can create the wrong type of mindset where marketers are afraid to make the wrong choice or stop progress due to the fear of their job becoming redundant.

After interviewing more than 30 marketers over the past few months, it has become apparent that the biggest issue that marketers are facing is their ability to keep their jobs and remain secure, when in fact, the whole industry was built on risk.

Risky marketing tactics that paid dividends made entrepreneurs such as Richard Branson, Elon Musk and Steve Jobs. Nike didn’t hold back when they called out golf courses that had bans on certain ethnic groups playing on their courses with Tiger Woods advertising campaign, and again with BLM campaigns that cut through the clutter and while they may have offended a few, the marketing campaigns paid dividends.

Why volunteering is good for business

On Monday, I volunteered to an organization called Open Hands in Atlanta. My intention was to use the public holiday wisely and by giving back, it was a good start.

It’s kind of like making your bed each morning. If you do that, it’s one less thing you have to do in the day, and when you return in the evening, you see the fruits of your labor.

Have you ever cut of your nose in spite of your face? If you think that you haven't - ever - then perhaps you are kidding yourself. We have all done it in life and our careers. It's the lessons we learn from our mistakes that often take us to where we need to be. We've all heard this many times before, and without sounding like a broken record, it needs reinforcing. No matter what age we are or what stage we are in our careers, we will make mistakes, choose the wrong option and be afraid to the take risks that might just lead us to where we want to go.

When a marketing student graduates, there is so much uncertainty, especially in the current climate. As a company that fosters growth in young graduates, we are determined to help people that are embarking on a career in a profession that is ever-changing, dynamic and technology driven.

As a Marketing Graduate we will on-board you to Marketing Eye in a way that allows you to see the full breadth of what a career in marketing will look like.
