    Due to ongoing growth in sales and continued development of innovative new products, an opportunity has arisen for a talented and enthusiastic individual to join our Library Sales team. The right candidate will be able to make a difference to sales and our customers, and help shape the way the sales organisation is changing and evolving. If you are dynamic with flair and enthusiasm then you will be rewarded by working for an independent, prestigious and well-respected company in the higher education and scholarly fields. The role: The role of Lean Library Inside Sales Representative will involve contacting and speaking with (predominantly) librarians, uncovering problems they face and evaluating the solutions Lean Library products can offer. This will include phone conversations, emails and product demonstrations. Most prospects will already have an existing relationship with SAGE although the contact may be new to Lean Library. The work will be carried out alongside Field Sales help to close the business. The role will require accurate record keeping and work tracking. Activities will need to be recorded in detail on the SAGE CRM system. Further verbal and written feedback may be needed to inform the product team of market intelligence. The job is office based but may require some travel (a driving license is not essential). Similar work for other SAGE products will be required from time to time. Full training will be provided in those products to allow confident and informed conversations. The candidate: Highly effective at influencing and persuading through a consultative, conversational sales style. Strong communication skills are essential, both verbally and written, and should be a natural listener, and be able to demonstrate interest in and understanding customer's issues. Many customers will be new to Lean Library products, so a confident positive approach and telephone manner is essential. Skills in European languages are an advantage but not essential. French, Spanish, and/or Italian would be preferred. The candidate must be results orientated with positive attitude. A drive to help people and meet targets combined with a resilience to being turned away is key. Good organisation, self-motivation and prioritisation skills will be important in the candidate's success in the role. Experience of working in a team is an advantage, as leads will be passed to and from marketing and field sales. A collaborative approach with colleagues, focused on the end result will be required.

Keith Weed, chief marketing officer in Unilever, recently gave a clarion call for cleaning of the world of influencer marketing. He is of the view that brands should immediately stop working with influencers who have adopted unfair means to get followers on social media platforms. Weed says there should be greater transparency from social media platforms to allow companies to measure the impact of influencer marketing.   Giant companies are supportive of this claim Big brands like Samsung, L’Oreal, and eBay are supportive of Weed’s views. They say they are aware of the problem and they have been trying to find a solution in their own ways. The challenge lies in finding out how many of the users on various social media platforms are fake. According to insiders, nearly 60 million Facebook accounts are fake whereas this number for Twitter is 15%.   Influencer marketing is very popular among big brands with experts reckoning it to be a $1 billion industry today. Companies are willing to pay as much as $100000 to a celebrity having more than a million followers if he mentions their brand in a post. Then there are micro influencers, individuals with less than 10000 followers. These people receive nearly $2000 per post mentioning a particular brand.   Not as effective as it is made out to be Close to 75% of marketers around the world work with influencers. More than 40%  advertising recruiters  say they would spend more on these influencers in the coming year. Yet, only about a third of  media recruitment agencies  felt that their efforts in influencer marketing were effective.   All this points to the fact that though cost of influencer marketing is increasing, there are no standardized methods of judging the efficacy of this kind of marketing.  This has led to a situation where unscrupulous influencers are getting lucrative amounts of money and there is no way of knowing whether these influencers are real or fake.   Out of all the important social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat, it is Instagram that is at the centre of controversy. Many big brands like Ritz Carlton, Olay, Magnum Ice Cream, and Pampers have found that increased traffic on their websites and stores attributed to influencer marketing through Instagram was fake.   This is the reason Keith Weed has appealed to tech giants to do something to achieve improved transparency for marketers so that they can analyse the performance of their advertising efforts using influencers.
The vertiginous pace of technology innovation, that is helping consumers discover new ways to interact with the world around, is almost as vertiginous for marketers, because the traditional, and once straightforward marketing funnel now looks more like a complex spider web of moments along which marketers must influence, connect and impact consumer consideration until the point of purchase. Some of the world’s leading technology, mobile and digital brands consider now the Digital Out of Home Media (OOH) the solution that gives them the reach that they need to connect with the power of those fluid consumer touch-points. Kantar data  revealed that  68 out of the top 100 OOH advertisers in 2016 had increases in Digital Out of Home Media (OOH) spend equal or greater to the industry increase of 3.1 percent , almost one-quarter of which were from the tech sector. Digital Out of Home Media (OOH), in fact, doesn’t just deliver an impactful brand message, but it also integrates well with other mediums. In fact, consumers want to experience things in the physical world.
