I’ve *heard* through very reliable sources who have hopped agency to client side that VFC can be very difficult to get into. Be prepared to take a step back in pay and title as agency experience is not as valued there. It will also be very hard to get in, even if you have folks on the inside. Not getting you down, just setting the same expectations as I was provided for VFC.

Avoid the ski holding companies unless you want a huge pay cut too. Tons of smaller tech companies, start-up or otherwise, that are lookin for strong marketing minds like yours. *Biased as that’s what I did six months ago. Best decision I’ve made yet. Well, that and taking 12 off to be a ski bum a few years back ❤️ Good luck!

What would you say a reasonable amount of dials during cold calling/following up should be during an 8 hour day? Do you cold call, follow up, close the sale, and provide customer service to your clients? If so, what would you say a reasonable amount of calls and/or time on the phone should be? I am trying to get a feel on what others do. I want to change the way my team does things and want to get ideas.
