Is there such a thing as a marketing secret? Does your suspicious antenna goes up when you hear the word secrets as a part of the pitch or presentation?

Mine does.

9-marketing-secrets-ensuring-smooth-career-change-with-kingsley-grantI immediately wonder, why is it a secret. The picture that comes to mind is of someone hiding or keeping something from view or being heard.

Why would someone want to hide a marketing secret?

I can imagine they want to keep it to themselves, being afraid of sharing and being ridiculed or simply afraid that someone might steal it.

There might be a plethora of reasons why someone would keep a marketing secret hidden. However, I can see why adding the word secret creates curiosity and hopefully allow for the dispensing of information to the right people.

That is what is being intended here.

In this episode you'll hear what is no longer a secret, the nine marketing strategies that will expedite and ensure a smooth career change for you.

Here are the 9 Marketing Secrets discussed:

  1. Attend networking events
  2. Join groups on FB and LinkedIn
  3. Give value to those groups
  4. Build relationships
  5. Post content related to what it is you do
  6. Share other people's content
  7. Attend workshop / conferences to connect with key people .. A few.
  8. Follow key people on SM. Share their work and interact with them
  9. Tell your friends and family

Each of the tips are expanded on within the show. Please share with others and show some love by leaving a Rating & Review on iTunes. See below for how to do so.

QUESTION & ANSWER OF THE WEEK

Question:Get-your-questions-answered-with-kingsley-grant

I have been underemployed for 4 years now. What is the best post graduate degree I can take?I do?

I didn't want to go back for the sake of a job. I am working as a call center agent and switched to working at home because I feel embarrassed and ashamed. I am afraid to run into someone from my school. I have always excelled in any job I take but hard to shine underneath paperwork.

Answer:   

Karline, if you were to ask around and people would be honest, you’d find that a great number of people who’ve graduated from college with degrees are working jobs that “they would be ashamed of” as you state.

The market is not as concerned as it once was about your degree. It is more outcome-centric meaning, what are you able to produce or do for it. What value do you bring to the table?

It is more about your skills and ability than your academics.

Granted, there are some jobs / careers that still require and will always require that degree because of the specialty of those careers. For example a doctor or lawyer etc.

You might be surprised to run into someone from your school who would love to have had your job.

What if you were to think about the skills you’ve acquired or had working in the call center? What would those skills be?

  • listening skills?
  • communication skills?
  • conflict resolution skills?

These are just some of the skills that you could use as your strength to position yourself for leveling up to another career. Use them to your advantage.

If you had always wanted to go back to college and get a post graduate degree, then do so to satisfy that desire. But if it is just to “not feel ashamed” then don’t. You’re going to waste precious time and money.
