How to Teach Workplace Soft Skills to Marketing Students

 Marketing is constantly evolving, but some things remain the same. Employers expect employees who communicate effectively, meet deadlines, and behave professionally. But while educators sometimes take these skills as a given, these challenging-to-teach skills can seem unimportant to students. How can educators develop well-rounded graduates who not only “know their stuff,” but who also have the workplace skills necessary for success?

ABM: The Personal Side of Marketing

There was a time when marketers used a “one size fits all” strategy, but we’re slowly moving towards a more personal approach. Account-based marketing is a result of what we’ve learned throughout the years, identifying the RIGHT accounts, building relationships, creating compelling content, and aligning sales and marketing teams is what creates a successful enterprise organization.
