A Day in the Life of a Marketer

What are your responsibilities at Softrak?
I'm responsible for Marketing at Softrak. There are many, many things that fall under Marketing's portfolio, including demand generation, communications, website, and distribution channels. We doubled the number of leads generated and distributed to our channel partners last year. We also increased traffic to our website by 25%. We are constantly clarifying our messaging and improving what we do.

Why do you enjoy working at Softrak?
I enjoy a challenge. The accounting software category is mature and crowded with big competitors. I really enjoy seeing our channel partners win deals and steal market share away from Sage and Microsoft.

What's your definition of great marketing?
Good marketing is when you connect a buyer that matches the customer profile with the product that is aligned with their specific needs. Great marketing is when you create a (sales & marketing) process that makes this repeatable, predictable and scalable.

Your favourite movie?
Hmmm. Almost Famous or Apocalypse Now.
  
Your favourite musical band?
The Beatles. For me, their music never gets old. I'm obsessed with music. I recently dusted off my turntable and started listening to my vinyl records again.
