I have an enjoyable day when I have had several appointments and it looks as if they will lead to something.

A day is less enjoyable when you receive complaints from clients or need to do a lot of administration.

Firsthand experience

You attended a network event, which resulted in a lead. What do you do next?

You call them and try to schedule an appointment. This is to meet each other and can also be useful even if no immediate assignment is available. If an assignment is available, you gather as much information as possible about the project during the meeting. Then, you start preparing a proposal on the basis of this gathered information. You incorporate the project website and marketing in this proposal. You complete the proposal and submit it. The client could want a demo. In that case, you either visit them again or take a Client Success Manager with you during the first meeting.

Following the proposal, you will hear whether they want the assignment. If this is the case, you hand over the client to a Client Success Manager, but they will remain your client. You oversee whether everything is running smoothly and ensure contact with the client goes well.

Growth

Within Realmark it is possible to develop in different directions – possibilities are even considered from outside your current field. This depends on how you develop yourself and what possibilities are available at that point.
