Outsourced sales and marketing firm Syrac Inspirations reveal its guide to new marketers, which shows the firm's 5 top tips on how to build a successful marketing career.
Tip 1 – Never stop learning.
Sara Holt, head of brand and global campaigns at BBC Worldwide once said ‘the key to success in marketing today is to be learning constantly’. Syrac Inspirations states that it is imperative to all marketers that they must never stop learning, especially because marketing trends come and go constantly. Knowledge is power, and it will only make us stronger.
Tip 2 – Take risks.
Syrac Inspirations believes that there is no such thing as ‘success and failure’; instead the firm sees it as ‘success and learning’. People must take risks, and only see it as an opportunity to learn if the risk doesn’t work out quite as planned.
Tip 3 – Look before you leap.
It is important not to get sucked into a routine because this prevents learning and development. It is also important to give a new role time to mature.
Tip 4 – Set realistic goals.
Goals are important because they create purpose. But it is also important that goals are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, timely). Make decisions because they are right, and not just to get ahead.
Tip 5 – Do what you are good at.
It is important to develop in areas that one is good at, because this is where they will excel. If one concentrates on the task at hand, then they will get recognised for their hard work.
