Online Marketing Manager Resume Example

online marketing manager resume example

Effective Resume Writing

When preparing your resume make sure the skills you list are accurately conveying your experience and knowledge in each area. It is also recommended that time be spent reviewing the skills the company is looking for in order to highlight these skills in a job interview or cover letter. The cover letter should briefly outline any skills or achievements that you might have and explain why you are a suitable candidate for the position.

Make sure when creating your resume you don’t have job functions that are not related to your skills this can make the person hiring you believe that you are not qualified for the job you are applying for and cause them not to read the rest of your resume. Clearly highlight the special skills and experience you have that the hiring manager is looking for. The employer looking to fill the opening will be interested in the work experience and job skills that correspond to the position they are trying to fill.

What skills do you want to utilize. All you need are the basic skills and knowledge:. A clear understanding of what specifically you have to offer; Thorough knowledge of your market place and what is wanted; An excellent command of the English Language.

For some job opening, employers receive hundreds and even thousands of resumes. A resume makes it easier for employers to evaluate whether a person who is applying for a job is a possible candidate. When creating a resume there are key points that employers are looking for in a resume, make sure you list the most important key points and keep the other less important points off the resume. On the negative side narrow resume objectives can be used by employers to eliminate a candidate, and often objectives are over-used, generic, and state the obvious.

Because employers want to know in a few seconds what you can do. The people who have similar careers to what you want will tell you about their own personal experiences in obtaining and maintaining the job, while those in human resources will be able to discuss what the employers in that field are truly seeking.

Avoid clichés and don’t copy a resume format or wording from someone else. Your resume outline is the blueprint to success containing everything you need to fill-in-the-blanks of your resume regardless of the format (chronological, functional, or combination).

The most popular style for resumes is the Chronological Resume. Practice with a few, and then see how comfortable you are with that resume style and your own employment history. To do this, you should choose a resume style that is tailored to your educational and professional experience.

You can also access other people’s résumé’s that are posted online which will give some great ideas for style and content.

Are online college degrees the same as in school college degrees? Does it matter in the end when job searching

I am worried that if I do all of my schooling online and get my diploma online for my teaching certificate, that I wont get hired because they are looking for people who have an in school diploma… but isnt it the same?

Ten tips for effective job search

It is always important to make sure that all the bases, if you are in the middle of a job search. Sometimes we get so focused on one aspect of the work looks like the sending of applications, for example, that we forget to make sure that everything we do is professional, focused and appropriate. Review these ten tips for you to ensure that your job search is on the right track.

Ten tips for effective job search

First Impressions
Look, speaking and acting with professional help, a great first impression. Tory Johnson, Women for Hire

Find referrals rather than jobs
If you’ve got a friend that is running or working in you dreaming company, why should you find any job else? Just find him. The Free Insiders Referral Network of Jobs;_ylu=X3oDMTFmb2NqcnEwBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA3NrMQR2dGlkA0gwNjhfMTI0BGwDV1MxBHF0A2Rx/SIG=11gr6q1tt/EXP=1204212177/**http%3a//
is strongly recommended.

Do not be afraid, the follow-up. I instructed managers a customer more than a year after he first sent me back. I did not even have to apply if the position is available. In addition to me in his curriculum vitae, John had me every month or so to touch-and even more in my office (by the back door not by the receptionist), Easy to say hello.

Try more effective job sites
A good job website will save you too much time. is a good job search engine that I’d recommend.

Be on time for the interview. On time means five to ten minutes early. If necessary, take some time to attend the office ahead of time, so that you know exactly where you are going and how long it will take to get there.

Job Fairs
From time to time in these events, even if we are not necessarily looking for a job, to see what options there are, and to provide a perspective on where you are in the job market place. Tracey Miner, the advantage Mulitcultural

Keep Track
I have noticed that one of the most useful things that I started to keep track of everything I do. I use a simple spreadsheet program like Excel. And I do mean anything. I have a file where I see all the information from all the sites, which I join. Information such as the user name and password, which I created, what kind of tasks, it is – or freelance regular or specialty. Tracey Pederson, Jill of trades

Meaningful work
Discover your passion, identify a new direction, and take steps to a career that leaves and energetisiert enthusiastic. Curt Rosengren, passion catalyst

Thank you say
Try to send your thank-you note within 24-48 hours after your meeting or interview. The note is handwritten on a small, professional, thank you note card (if you have extremely clean handwriting, and only a brief message to convey), word-processed, or by e-mail.

Stay On Top of the News
Be aware of the latest business news in your town or city in which you wish to work. Read local magazines to find out who is on top in your industry. Check the business section of your local newspaper, as well. These resources will give you a sense for employers are “hot” contact information, how often to send your CV.

Your Resume
Write until it is correct. Think, write, think some more, rewrite, correction, you will get feedback and rewriting. Joyce Lain Kennedy, author Career

Do not Give Up
Last, but not least, do not give up. Job search is not easy and it is even harder when the job market is difficult. Keep plugging away in your job search, and finally, when there is more time consuming that you expect is the correct position.

Online Marketing Tools Free

5 Reasons Why Blogging is the New online Marketing Tool

Blogging is a concept that started in late 90s.  It used to be a way to comment an existing webpage, an opportunity for visitors and readers to react or voice out one’s opinion on the said page.  What started as a single-sentence commentary has evolved into pages of personal take on just about anything and everything under the sun.  As it continues to move forward, online advertising has tapped into the blog’s potential.  Here are 5 reasons why you should use blogging as an Internet marketing tool. 

1.Blogging is simple.  The simplest way to get your piece on the net is through blogging.  No skills are necessary… an average adult can read and type, or at least click a mouse.  It’s like having a virtual piece of paper and you just write your ideas, experiences, new products, and hope that the truth behind your articles comes out and entice your reader to also try your product.  If you have a PC and an Internet connection (who doesn’t?) then you can blog and advertise.

2. Blogging is authentic.  In this day and age where advertising saturate our lives, we question the credibility of promoters’ claims.  However, in blogs, real people share their real-life experiences, unscathed by paid advertising.  Reading blogs about first-hand product use is like talking to people about their first-hand experience.  You definitely want to buy a tried and tested product.

3. Blogging is free.  Because blogging is yet to be proven as a mainstream online advertising media, most sites see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free.   Any opportunity for free webtime is definitely a bonus especially to businesses that are starting up.  Needless to say, paid blog pages can generate more income for your seriously growing business.

4. Blogging builds credibility.  As you get more and more into writing your experiences on a particular product or industry, your readers come to realize that they can depend on your posts for their own information needs.  As such, you become an expert on it; as a consequence, more readers visit your site and more bloggers link to your blogs.  As companies and professional organizations notice the growth of your readership base, they may soon get in touch with you for advertising on your blog page, or make you an affiliate, which pays for every referral generated from your blog site.

5. Blogging builds your market.  Unless you are a Hollywood star, chances are, only your Mom reads your posts.  Mom has a lot of friends, so she lets her friends know how interesting your blog site is.  But you need not depend on Mom to increase your readership base.  Look into the following ways to build your market through blogging:

-By using your e-mail.  Today, blogging is overcoming the e-mail’s popularity in quickly and effectively reaching and expanding a market.  In this age of speed and quick access, logging in and downloading e-mail is simply taking longer than clicking into a blog site.  Let them explore your site by using a short e-mail message as teaser to your blog site.  If your e-mail is on an entirely different subject, use your e-mail signature to give a link to the site.

-By using subscription.  An easy way to get your readers e-mail is to give them an opportunity to subscribe to your blogsite.  Keep some exclusive information for your subscribers to entice readers to subscribe and give their e-mail address.  Just be responsible in using their e-mail address, as the last thing you want is a comment on your blog that you are a spammer.

-By understanding your readers.  Conduct a simple survey for your readers to understand their profile and advertising preferences.  Ask consumers to give you feedback on a post, an ad link, or a trial that you shared.  In this way, it is like interviewing your readers without the commitment and intrusion of a face-to-face interview.

-By joining a blog network –A network of blogs maybe a collection of blog sites that share the same industry, interest, readership base, payment mode, etc.  Consumers find credibility and convenience in clicking one link to several real bloggers about a single subject.  Clearly, more bloggers are better than one.

-By using RSS. RSS is the fastest growing technology on the Internet today.  As such, having RSS feeds to your blog is definitely another means of generating awareness for your readership base.  Having a variety of feeds can add interest to your blog site. 

Give your business a boost by effectively using blogging as an Internet marketing tool.

Solutions for joint problems – any ideas please?

I’m looking for alternative remedies for joint problems. I can’t find any non biased reliable information so I thought I’d ask you guys whats worked for you – I’ve heard about glucosamine, evening primrose and omega 3. I’m vegetarian.
Background – I’m not quite sure what I have. I’m 20, when I was a kid, about 11 I had bad joints in my legs. Went through all the rounds of consultants etc. I don’t think they came up with a definitive diagnosis, but I think someone mentioned arthritis. I was on vioxx, but that was taken off the market. but i seemed to grow out of it. in the last couple of years it came back, and got LOADS worse this winter. I was taking sodium diclophenac, but it didn’t seem to work, and when I did take it regularly, it really upset my stomach. The problem is really bad in my hands, but also knees and everywhere in the cold (changeable weather isnt helping) anyway, i have a phobia of doctors now so can’t go back and discuss it. (sorry for the length!)

I’m sorry to read your dealing with pain problems, its no fun, & there are alternative things that can help you, but I really do think you should overcome your phobia, & see a Dr, & get a proper diagnosis, there are so many things that s could be causing your joint pain, some of which, if left untreated, can get a lot worse, & disable you, & others, that may be easily treatable, so please, do yourself a favour, & do PUSH for a proper diagnosis, dont be scared to make a fuss, & DONT be fobbed off.

That said, Black cherry juice can help, but I found it expensive, but I did notice a slight improvement in my pain levels.

Paingone pen, a little gagdet that zaps your pain, sort of like a mini tens pen… I love mine, it really does help, & is drug free.

Accupunture can help a lot, depending on what your pain is.

Chiropractic can help a lot too, & will help realign your body so your joints are not undr unecessary strain & making the pain worse.

Flax seed oil, is a vegitarian version of Codliver oil, & is much more potent, it will take about 2 weeks to kick in, but will help a lot.

Magnesium will help your body regulate pain signals (amongst other things), you can take supplements, but I love Epsom salt baths, 2 cups in hot water & soak for 20minutes at least, a few times a week, this is a good way of getting Magnesium into your system.

you may be suffering from a food intolerance, such as wheat or Dairy, they can & often do, cause joint pain too….keep a food diary(google) to see when pain flare ups occur, try illiminating foods & re-introducing, & check what happens.

Spirulina is a good source of nutiments, & can help your body fight illness, I love this stuff .

Cats claw is a fantastic herb for allsorts of things, including pain problems.

Clary Sage, is an aromatherapy oil, that is an anelgesic & a euphoric, so lifts you mood too, I swear by this oil, in the bath or pillow, or sleeve, etc.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage masssage, helps clear toxins out of your system, & always amazed me that it completely cleared any pain I had that day

Good luck, but please do yourself a favour & get aproper diagnosis.

sell to small businesses?

i want to sell wholesale items to small businesses in my area and online. can anyone give me ideas on approaching them, espcially online. and are there any magazines, newspapers or websites where i can advertise to small businesses

Attending chamber of commerce meetings and getting your name out there is helpful off line.

On-line most small business owners that have money are too busy to be doing much on-line. If they are on-line they are looking for you to sell them loss leaders (products or services at a loss for you) not something most small businesses can handle.

Magazines, newspapers etc would be best directed towards something very specific due to cost.

On-line you may want to checkout for on-line business.

Online Advertising Growth 2006

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Hi! Anyone have any statistics or facts about the fall in CD sales?

I’m doing a ten minute presentation (in Spanish) in about three weeks time about the death of the CD and increases in music downloads. Any figures or general views about the topic would be much appreciated.

Rise in Downloading Fails to Boost Industry:
A Retailing Shakeout
Wall Street Journal, March 21, 2007

In a dramatic acceleration of the seven-year sales decline that has battered the music industry, compact-disc sales for the first three months of this year plunged 20% from a year earlier, the latest sign of the seismic shift in the way consumers acquire music.

The sharp slide in sales of CDs, which still account for more than 85% of music sold, has far eclipsed the growth in sales of digital downloads, which were supposed to have been the industry’s salvation.

The slide stems from the confluence of long-simmering factors that are now feeding off each other, including the demise of specialty music retailers like longtime music mecca Tower Records. About 800 music stores, including Tower’s 89 locations, closed in 2006 alone.

Apple Inc.’s sale of around 100 million iPods shows that music remains a powerful force in the lives of consumers. But because of the Internet, those consumers have more ways to obtain music now than they did a decade ago, when walking into a store and buying it was the only option.

Today, popular songs and albums — and countless lesser-known works — can be easily found online, in either legal or pirated forms. While the music industry hopes that those songs will be purchased through legal services like Apple’s iTunes Store, consumers can often listen to them on MySpace pages or download them free from other sources, such as so-called MP3 blogs.

Jeff Rabhan, who manages artists and music producers including Jermaine Dupri, Kelis and Elliott Yamin, says CDs have become little more than advertisements for more-lucrative goods like concert tickets and T-shirts. “Sales are so down and so off that, as a manager, I look at a CD as part of the marketing of an artist, more than as an income stream,” says Mr. Rabhan. “It’s the vehicle that drives the tour, the merchandise, building the brand, and that’s it. There’s no money.”

The music industry has found itself almost powerless in the face of this shift. Its struggles are hardly unique in the media world. The film, TV and publishing industries are also finding it hard to adapt to the digital age. Though consumers are exposed to more media in more ways than ever before, the challenge for media companies is finding a way to make money from all that exposure. Newspaper publishers, for example, are finding that their Internet advertising isn’t growing fast enough to replace the loss of traditional print ads.

In recent weeks, the music industry has posted some of the weakest sales it has ever recorded. This year has already seen the two lowest-selling No. 1 albums since Nielsen SoundScan, which tracks music sales, was launched in 1991.

One week, “American Idol” runner-up Chris Daughtry’s rock band sold just 65,000 copies of its chart-topping album; another week, the “Dreamgirls” movie soundtrack sold a mere 60,000. As recently as 2005, there were many weeks when such tallies wouldn’t have been enough to crack the top 30 sellers. In prior years, it wasn’t uncommon for a No. 1 record to sell 500,000 or 600,000 copies a week.

In general, even today’s big titles are stalling out far earlier than they did a few years ago.

The music industry has been banking on the rise of digital music to compensate for inevitable drops in sales of CDs. Apple’s 2003 launch of its iTunes Store was greeted as a new day in music retailing, one that would allow fans to conveniently and quickly snap up large amounts of music from limitless virtual shelves.

It hasn’t worked out that way — at least so far. Digital sales of individual songs this year have risen 54% from a year earlier to 173.4 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan. But that’s nowhere near enough to offset the 20% decline from a year ago in CD sales to 81.5 million units. Overall, sales of all music — digital and physical — are down 10% this year. And even including sales of ringtones, subscription services and other “ancillary” goods, sales are still down 9%, according to one estimate; some recording executives have privately questioned that figure, which was included in a recent report by Pali Research.

Meanwhile, one billion songs a month are traded on illegal file-sharing networks, according to BigChampagne LLC.

Adding to the music industry’s misery, CD prices have fallen amid pressure for cheaper prices from big-box retailers like Wal-Mart and others. That pressure is feeding through to record labels’ bottom lines. As the market has deteriorated, Warner Music Group Corp., which reported a 74% drop in profits for the fourth quarter of 2006, is expected to report little relief in the first quarter of this year.

Looking at unit sales alone “flatters the situation,” says Simon Wright, chief executive of Virgin Entertainment Group International, which runs 14 Virgin Megastores locations in North America and 250 world-wide. “In value terms, the market’s down 25%, probably.” Virgin’s music sales have increased slightly this year, he says, thanks to the demise of chief competitor Tower, and to a mix of fashion and “lifestyle” products designed to attract customers.

Perhaps the biggest factor in the latest chapter of the music industry’s struggle is the shakeout among music retailers. As recently as a decade ago, specialty stores like Tower Records were must-shop destinations for fans looking for both big hits and older catalog titles. But retailers like Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Best Buy Co. took away the hits business by undercutting the chains on price. Today such megaretailers represent about 65% of the retail market, up from 20% a decade ago, music-distribution executives estimate. And digital-music piracy, which has been rife since the rise of the original Napster file-sharing service, has allowed many would-be music buyers to fill their CD racks or digital-music players without ever venturing into a store.

Late last year, Tower Records closed its doors, after filing for bankruptcy-court protection in August. Earlier in 2006, following a bankruptcy filing, Musicland Holding Corp., which owned the Sam Goody chain, closed 500 of its 900 locations. And recently, Trans World Entertainment Corp., which operates the FYE and Coconuts chains, among others, began closing 134 of its 1,087 locations.

But even at the outlets that are still open, business has suffered. Executives at Trans World, based in Albany, N.Y., told analysts earlier this month that sales of music at its stores declined 14% in the last quarter of 2006. For the year, music represented just 44% of the company’s sales, down from 54% in 2005. For the final quarter of the year, music represented just 38% of its sales.

Joe Nardone Jr., who owns the independent 10-store Gallery of Sound chain in Pennsylvania, says he is trying to make up for declining sales of new music by emphasizing used CDs, which he calls “a more consistent business.” For now, though, he says used discs represent less than 10% of his business — not nearly enough to offset the declines.

Retailers and others say record labels have failed to deliver big sellers. And even the hits aren’t what they used to be. Norah Jones’s “Not Too Late” has sold just shy of 1.1 million copies since it was released six weeks ago. Her previous album, “Feels Like Home,” sold more than 2.2. million copies in the same period after its 2004 release.

“Even when you have a good release like Norah Jones, maybe the environment is so bad you can’t turn it around,” says Richard Greenfield, an analyst at Pali Research.

Meanwhile, with music sales sliding for the first time even at some big-box chains, Best Buy has been quietly reducing the floor space it dedicates to music, according to music-distribution executives.

Whether Wal-Mart and others will follow suit isn’t clear, but if they do it could spell more trouble for the record companies. The big-box chains already stocked far fewer titles than did the fading specialty retailers. As a result, it is harder for consumers to find and purchase older titles in stores.
