Look around you, information today is delivered in more ways than we imagined a decade ago. Have you ever wonder if you could turn off your smartphones or computer tablets, now that they have become part of your daily routine for information gathering, entertainment and communication? If you did, will you be lost?
Has the advent of social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Blogs changed how we “speak” to one another? Face-to-face interaction – has that been reduced?
New media is changing the world as consumers see and feel it. More importantly, it has generated a new level of commerce and sophistication of communication that companies can now tap on to reach out to customers. It is estimated that within this decade, the media industry will see a more than three-fold increase in spending in the digital space. The media industry thus anticipates a dramatic surge in the need for skilled new media professionals.
In particular, this trend will see an even stronger need for sales and marketing professionals to help the new media industry reach out to organisations in their journey to tap all possible opportunities to further their businesses. As the first point of contact by the new media industry to reach out to potential customers, new media sales professionals will enjoy exciting careers that ride on new media trends. Furthermore, they will enjoy derive satisfaction from being involved in translating new media campaigns and brand management that impact the world we live in.
