If you’ve ever been a part of a contractor digital marketing campaign, you know that it’s a labor of love. You spend the day on the phone with a contractor, asking them to update your website, create a new landing page, or help you with a particular project. It may seem like the work is worth it, but we still have to pay for it (if you’re a contractor, you know that).
While the work may seem like it’s worth it, there is often a hidden cost. For instance, if you’re doing a project for a company that only gives you a 10% cut, then they usually pay you only $10. This means that they have to pay $10 extra for the project, and they do, so instead of earning $50.00 that day, you’ve earned just $10.
Companies that only give 10-percent-off deals can be a little tough on their contractors. However, this is actually what it looks like. Youll see a list of jobs that you can do for a company, and the jobs that youre qualified for. Then the company will tell you which jobs are in your area. They will typically pay you a fixed rate, so their website says theyll pay you a fixed fee, then they pay you whatever the fixed fee is.
What I love about this is that it’s easy to see if youre qualified for a job youre applying for. It’s all online. And if you have a chance to do the company a favor, theyll be glad to do so. Ive found this really helpful with many companies that want me to do more than what I should.
I know a lot of people who are out of work, and they want to get their foot in the door and start a new career. Thats why I love digital marketing, because it is so easy to see if you have the skills they want. It is one more way to prove youre a valuable asset to your company.
Thats also why I love tech support and customer service. I love the feeling that youre learning from your customers and improving what you have to offer to them. It drives me crazy when I get someone who is complaining about how their computer is acting up and that they dont have a good idea of what theyre doing, and I can’t help them. I think that is the most fulfilling feeling that Ive ever had.
I used to work as a computer tech for a large corporation. The guy who started my job was a total geek who did everything with a computer. You just knew he knew what he was doing, because he was in the field, and that made me want to be like him.
That’s the type of person you need to be. The kind of person who does things the old fashion way. That is, you know where things are, and you try things that work and know if they work, and if they dont, you just go back to the way it was and do them the old way.
Of course, most of us don’t want to work for a company, but that’s exactly the type of person who can help you. I mean, who wants to do that? It’s not like you’re going to make a ton of money. But you’re going to be in the trenches for a long time, and doing something that makes a real impact on people even if it’s not for money.
As someone who has worked as an online marketer for several years, I can tell you that almost all the time, you have to be in a sales role. And that sales role means sales, not marketing, right? Marketing is all about selling, marketing, sales, marketing. Its really tough to sell something that isnt selling. But it is easier to sell something that isnt selling. So if you are in a sales role, you have to be in a sales role.
