Always be marketing.Marketers are always marketing. Period. Even when business is slow you will not see them tire of marketing because they know that’s how they get leads. Marketers understand that although it may look like slim pickings for some time, eyes are always watching. In the case of your job search, keeping consistent with your marketing may mean making sure you are periodically sharing accomplishments or related industry articles on LinkedIn. Furthermore, you have to remain consistent even if you don’t seem to be getting any leads. Truth be told, marketing is not a one-time deal. It’s a marathon you never stop running.
Stay one step ahead of the game.Marketers are also always one step ahead of their prospects. They tend to know how prospects may behave before they even do anything. As such they make sure to cover all of their bases. For instance, let’s say you meet a great contact at a networking event that could lead to a new position. You add them on LinkedIn through your phone app and they promise you they’ll set up a meeting some time down the road. Rather than waiting for them to contact you to set up a meeting go the extra mile and send them a follow up “Nice to meet you” email within 24 hours of meeting them. At this stage a true marketer is thinking two things. First, your new contact may get busy with work and life and completely forget to set up a meeting at a later date like they promised. In fact, they may even forget who you are. That’s why a marketer also thinks that emailing your new contact within a 24 hour period will keep you top of mind. It’s simply a nice touchstone in building a relationship, which is essentially what marketing is all about.
