Information about Event Marketing Jobs

Event marketing jobs require a lot of patience and understanding of proper advertising. When a charity holds an event or a large for profit business wants to roll out their new product to the public how do they make this happen? Do you plan to host an event or attend a trade show at some point in your business career? This is the information for you! Expect to receive many potent seeds of wisdom regarding strategy and keys to successful implementation of your event.

You are an event marketer! You get paid to promote your company via planned events. When promoting at an event, be sure that you only single out your target group. If you will be a part of a trade show that someone else is hosting, make sure that you receive a list of leads pertaining to your individual company prior to paying any participation or "booth" fees. It is imperative that you do in depth research of the types of people who will be attending. Remember this key to success: better to work an event where you will have 500 serious leads rather than 10,000 unqualified leads. The best Event Marketers understand the power of prizes and give aways. The best of the best however, understand the power of creating a prize that only attracts and creates pre-qualified leads. For example, if you are promoting your sales and marketing training company the prize can be a free 15 hour sales training DVD. All who sign up for this prize are obviously interested in the company.

Salary is performance based in such a career field as this. One can make anywhere from $50,000-$500,000. Millionaires are not uncommon either. It is not as difficult as one may think to claim your spot amongst the top performers. As with all things in life, little hinges swing big doors. The $50,000 a year event marketer may accept the last booth at every event he attends. He doesn't realize the importance of location yet has the same knowledge and product as the $500,000 man. The only difference is the $500,000 man/woman is willing to invest more money towards a greater more visible location. This simple change can be the difference between an extra $65,000 raised for the company.

When your budget is tight, have no fear! If you would like to participate or create your own event on a low budget simply share booth space and split the cost. When promoting your event, buying fliers and hiring a team to flier the whole town rather than buying a short television commercial makes all the difference! Take advantage of social networks like facebook during tough times. Only fools spend the company budget unwisely. Never pay full price for anything. It will always be much easier to negotiate for your business than yourself. Remember to always ask for the company discount...always!

Congratulations on being the one your company greatly depends on. No need to seek a promotion, the only one higher than you is usually the vice president or owner himself.
