Moreover, the interview process will require a lot of your time and energy. You must be certain that the prospective employee will fit your company’s culture and objectives.
Therefore, to help you make an informed decision, here’s a list of the top five things to look for when hiring a marketing executive.
Top sales achievers have a unique ability to cope with difficulty, negotiate obstacles, and optimize performance in the face of adversity. They take rejection as a personal challenge to succeed with the next customer.
2. Good listeners
A marketing executive must listen to the customer’s pain point before they start selling your product or service. Great salespeople sell solutions to problems, and they do that by understanding and listening to the customer.
3. Optimistic and upbeat
Top salespeople tend to be upbeat and radiate a sense of humor, fun, and general positivity. While grounded in reality, they focus on what they can control and stay on course with optimism about what they can achieve.
Almost any role in the world of marketing will involve managing or maintaining relationships with clients, and a marketer needs to be confident. If they don’t believe in the product or themselves, they aren’t going to make a customer believe in the product.
5. Easy to talk to
They are generally sociable, get energized by spending time with other people, and like to talk and start conversations. They also tend to have many interests. This allows a salesperson to be willing to meet people, enjoy the interaction, and talk about many things. The more subjects they can converse about, the better they’re able to connect with the customer.
