The risk of fashion marketing careers

Making a career change is a huge decision for just about everyone that has been in a career for any length of time and has gotten themselves established. Starting over from scratch is a very scary thing because nothing is certain to work out to be better than what your currently doing. As a rule of thumb if your not being fulfilled in your current career it’s better to find something else to do that will make living worth it.

Society tells us that were to old to change career the things we want to do now is something we should have gotten into when you were younger. If that were true we would want to be in the career choice we made that we are in now. It would be nice to have gotten in what is now our fantasy career then but we didn’t and shouldn’t let anything stop you from starting now. Even if you have to start doing it part time in the beginning.

One of the many career choice changes most people will frown upon is fashion marketing careers. Advertising and marketing is one of the most feared professions out there today all because it is about sales. Sales and working on commissions seems to scares people half to death. They tend to think that this type of work it’s not steady income because commissions aren’t guaranteed. If you take a look at who or whatever company they work for the root of their pay check comes from something being sold and if enough sales aren’t being made there are layoffs. The funny thing about that is that the sales people are one of the last people to start to get layed off.

In advertising and marketing there is a pretty predictable way of determining how much money your going to make and it has everything to do with leaning your metrics. Once you know that you basically know how much your going to make of whatever your selling. In order to make more money all you have to do is tweak what is working so you get a better conversion.

The most riskiest  part of being in advertising and marketing is when your first starting out and you don’t know your metrics or  your targeted audience. Once you satisfy those two thing making money is like asking a child if they want a lollipop. Your able to basically print money do more of what is working and your marketing campaign will do better.
