What is the role of marketing in the success of a company?
A company has great challenges ahead from the beginning of its creation, and offering a product or service interesting to the public, is one of them.
This challenge involves having a value proposition studied and analyzed, that will fit in the market and be purchased by customers
How to get it? The marketing department works on it, detects the needs of potential customers with analysis tools such as market research, competition or design thinking.
In addition, the marketing department studies what is the best price to sell and by which channels.
Last but not least, marketing communicates the value proposition to its audience, so they can buy it, because if the customer doesn’t know you, they can never buy you.
Is a career in marketing and advertising made only for people with an artistic and creative profile or can it be a good choice for people with a more analytical profile, for example?
This department is dynamic and adaptable to changes, so it requires young people who have the flexibility and perception of new consumption habits, and technological knowledge, to bring freshness and new ideas.
Both analytical and artistic profiles are required in these environments because of their versatility of functions.
What is your opinion of the importance of gaining practical experience through internships during professional training in marketing and how can internships influence long-term professional success?
For a person who has concerns in marketing and advertising studies, I recommend internships in companies to take their studies to the practical field and acquire technical, strengthened and professional skills, and I recommend that you ask as many questions as you can to your employees, as they are experienced professionals, and their knowledge and experience will exponentially grow the professionalism of any student cycle.
Specialized approach is an advantage
The marketing and advertising market faces significant challenges with the arrival of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence.
However, professionals who have gone through vocational training programs are well positioned to address these challenges and take advantage of emerging opportunities.
The combination of practical skills, up-to-date knowledge and specialized approach gives them a competitive advantage in this constantly evolving scenario.
