As a Get Ahead VA Franchisee, you need to recruit a Marketing Specialist who has the confidence and experience to work with clients who know they need a marketing strategy but have no idea where to start. A Marketing Specialist can work up a strategy and then delegate the areas of the strategy to various team members to implement. Alternatively, clients wish to use the virtual Marketing Specialist as an alternative to having an in-house Marketing Manager, which means the role can be quite a generalist too.
You need to look for an enthusiastic Marketing Specialist to help your clients with their overall marketing efforts. They will play an integral part in the development and execution of marketing plans to reach targets that can relate to anything from brand awareness, to product promotion.
Marketing Specialists should be competent professionals, who are able to grasp consumer behaviour trends and generate creative ideas. They should also be comfortable with delivering more specialised marketing concepts, principles and tactics.
The goal is to deliver effective marketing programmes that will help our clients improve their reputation and boost their growth.
