The latest blog post from London School of Marketing asks a simple question: ‘Are introverts an asset to marketing?’ It explores some of the stereotypes and misconceptions in the industry, such as the view that you have to be loud and gregarious to be successful. While it may be an advantage to be outgoing when it comes to pitches and presentations, the post argues, many marketing roles involve a great deal of solitude.
Anton Dominique, the school’s chief marketing officer, said: “Our CIM diploma is ideal for students who want to explore a variety of areas in marketing, and consider which one might be best suited to their skills and personality.
“There are a number of areas of marketing in which introverts often excel, including market research, strategy, social media management and analysis.”
The post concludes that the diverse world of marketing calls for introverts, extroverts and those who are somewhere on the middle of the spectrum. Readers are asked to reconsider any preconceptions they may have about the industry and explore which roles are best suited to their own personality.
