In the field of marketing, or business for a more common term, there are tons of myths that people believe in. Whether pertaining to fresh workers or COO of huge companies, every individual will have an answer to the question “what do you believe in when it comes to marketing and business?”.
Although there is nothing wrong with this, you should always keep yourself on the right track. Avoid believing all the fabrications you bump into. Instead, read along this article and discover the most common yet unreliable fable.
1. Promotion is always the best
All employees are after a promotion. This is one of the many reasons why they’re working hard. But the question is, “is it really good for them?”. Try asking this to yourself before accepting that promotion, because it’s not all the time that it is the best. Keep in mind that it’s the other half of bigger responsibilities. Can you handle it? Are you ready to deal with bigger company problems?
2. Employers say “I want you all to be yourself here” when what they really meant was “I’m just playing safe, my dear employees”
Most employers would surely say this to every newcomer. If you think he is the best employer, then better think again. Not because he said it means he or she is an angel. This is a common tactic that employers, especially business owners, do to keep their workers. But they don’t really mean it.
3. Organization problem is not always to blame
Have you experienced that instance when you’re working for a private sector and later on you just saw yourself working for the government? If this is the case, then this myth is for you. The main reason why people move from private to government (and vise versa) is because everything seems to be so slow for them. However, it is not always the case. Try to assess yourself. Perhaps you’re making the same mistakes over and over again and it’s not the organization to blame.
4. Stock price is not always cheap
If there’s a sale at the mall, most people assume it’s cheap and they would hurry to purchase it. When it comes to stock prices in general, price fluctuation is also there. However, this doesn’t mean it’s already cheap. You should also check the quality and all other vital aspects. If everything remains the same, except the price, then that’s good. But if the product quality is also at the lowest then that’s a different story.
5. Be patient, wait for the right timing
Most companies have a time-table for everything like when to sell a certain product, when to launch another batch or when to publicize a new teaser. But the bottom line of all these would be patience. Most business owners believe that there’s always a right time for everything. Yes there is, but not when it comes to selling. Keep in mind that the likelihood of the share price status only depends on the performance of the business.
Business myths will always be there, thus, you should know which is close to reality and which will ruin your career. There’s nothing wrong in believing such certainty, belief or whatever you want to call it. You should just be sure you’re still on the right track.
