This is a small IT company, and my boss put me in charge of the marketing because he has never done any marketing for his company. He has given me a lot of flexibility, I can work from home, and he has trusted my expertise in the marketing area.
The big thing that I have learned so far is that in marketing, not everything is going to work right away. The more channels you use (email, direct mail, social media, word of mouth, etc), however, the greater your chances are for success.
I think the only downside to this job right now is that I can only put in a maximum of 20 hours per week (because of the company's budget).
My favorite part of this job is the fact that I am being trusted to handle all of the marketing. I love marketing, and I love figuring out unique ways to promote this business.
only a part time job at the moment
