Sales and Marketing Managers do very little actual selling and focus attention developing online sales programmes in line with the agreed marketin plan.
Developing and implementing training programs and incentives that motivate salespeople will occupy much of your time whilst outlining marketing department goals.
In smaller companies, Sales and Marketing Manager Jobs create promotional incentives (such as free merchandise with a certain purchase) geared toward the consumer. In some situations, they may work with the research and development department, checking sales results against certain demographics.
In larger companies, Marketing Management involves close collaboration with the marketing team to build name recognition or to promote special offers. In both large and small companies, Sales and Marketing Managers project future sales based on information collected from the department and may assist with product research and development based on these findings.
