Marketing Director Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Marketing Director in Toronto:
"Lack of Respect for Operations in Professional Services."
Ask for what you need. It is a cliché, but the squeaky wheel usually gets what they need.

Marketing Director in Blainville:
"Be Available More Than 40 Hours A Week."
Do not let your job take all the place in your life.

Marketing Director in Vancouver:
"Don't Count On The Bonus."
It's a great carrot held out by employers to lure top talent at basement pay - look, we're giving you a huge bonus. Payable when the company meets its target. If we meet our target. Man, we set aggressive targets. Anyway, your base pay is almost enough to live on provided you have several credit cards that you don't mind loading up in case you also want to have a life. Find out how often the bonus has been paid in past years and at what rate. Get really clear on how the company is performing this year. Accept the bonus if it is part of the company culture. But make sure the base pay is livable or even a great job at a great company will turn sour.

Marketing Director in Toronto:
"Make Marketing Efforts Measurable."
Make sure you can measure marketing's impact in the organization so that it is easier to defend your budget and resources. When a company is not doing well, the marketing budget is one of the first things to go. But if you can measure it, then you can defend it.

Marketing Director in Toronto:
"Do Not Lose Sight Of Career Priorities."
Make sure you are able to build a team around you (hire a support staff), or keep your expectations manageable. You are now a north american department of one, and as the company grows, more management levels are being added. Your role needs to grow alongside, or you will end up being the sole support for too many people, and becoming the primary executional support, instead of moving forward as a business leader on par with new leaders.

Marketing Director in Toronto:
"Foundational Marketing in a Digital Age"
Keep up with new marketing trends but never forget foundational principles.
