What Do Marketers Do?

Principles of MarketingWhat Do Marketers Do?

Check out the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) website, and scan the wealth of information available. It offers a content library, newsstand, marketing futures, blogs, and podcasts. Throughout this information, you will learn more about many aspects of current trends, future opportunities, and simply what it is that marketers are doing now. Being educated on the many associations and the information available can inspire you to look at marketing careers in a different light.

Navigate to the Content Library, then the Media Channels section. (In order to see the link to the Content Library, you need to hover over “Resources” at the top of the page.) From this section, review the various pieces of content available, and choose one to read. After reading, write a two-paragraph summary on what you learned, what you found most interesting, and why.
