As a young marketer, working at an advertising agency in Lahore is quite exciting. You get to interact with a lot of creative people, get to know how they work and acquire the business, and so on. Working in an Advertising agency in Pakistan can also be challenging sometimes but it is worth the hassle. At least for people like me!
For me, working on a variety of clients, from different, opposing even, fields is pretty exciting. It gives one quite some room to learn something new with each passing day. When you work in just one brand, you don’t get to learn about other fields and your knowledge might not be as diverse as it is while working at an advertising agency anywhere in the world.
Now, I am not saying that working on just one brand is not beneficial. It is but it does not give a lot of learning opportunities to the creatives. Whereas, working on a variety of clients opens up the minds of all the team members and makes them think fresh which is very important because of the workflow at an advertising agency in Lahore.
Size of the agency
Now, most advertising agencies also provide printing services in Pakistan and our company does too. This is another plus point for a marketer when he or she joins a new agency; seeing what kind of work and which technologies or services they offer to their clients. This ensures growth and a certain exposure which you would not be able to get at a small-scale agency that outsources most of its work.
Finding the right team
So, it is important to be a part of a team that has great potential to grow in the field of marketing and advertising agency in Lahore because this way, you get to grow. And if you are stuck at a dead-end job, you’d never be able to make your way into the advertising field. This field is quite competitive, sometimes cutthroat even because of the nature of the job but I guess this is what makes it exciting too.
It’s all about teamwork
Whenever a new account comes in, everyone wants to get involved, learn about it, and play with it. This exercise is fruitful too because it lets everyone share their raw ideas and the creative team can then take those forward and use them if and when required.
Advertising requires teamwork and it is absolutely necessary that every person that is on a particular account, understands the clients inside and out. If the people working on a certain account are not familiar with the work, it can cause problems with the day-to-day working because it becomes difficult to brief everyone again and again, especially when there is a lot of work at hand.
Management has a crucial role to play
Managers play a vital role in making sure that everyone is assigned their tasks. In due time and also that they are performing their duties as expected. And if the management fails to keep a check on the employees. It can create problems within the team which could eventually affect the client’s work and that is never an option.
Because in the end, it is the client we are working for or with and we cannot risk affecting their work. So, it is very important that the team understands the importance of their roles. And timely completion of their respective tasks. This way, they get to work peacefully with each other and also get everything done in time.
Opportunities to learn and grow
It is also important to provide new learning opportunities to the team members. Make their work on new and exciting projects, get them involved in something which requires learning or perfecting a new skill, this way they get to enhance their skill set and also help the agency.
An advertising agency in Lahore is a pretty exciting place to work, no doubt about that but it might just be one of the most hectic jobs there are in the corporate world. There are good days and there are bad days but both bring opportunities to learn something new that benefits everyone in this field.
