What do you do for MaxExposure?

My daily tasks include sourcing and posting content for clients as well as monitoring their social media accounts.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love having the opportunity to enable our clients to have an online presence that aligns with their goals as a business owner.

Why do you feel companies should choose MaxExposure?

Having a team like us, completely focused on the marketing, enables every customer to freely pursue the dream that led them to starting their business! What we offer is a new way to connect with the users of the phenomenal products and services our clients are already providing.

Employee Feature: Alli Burns, Marketing Assistant

Hi!! My name is Alli and I’m the face behind many of the MaxExposure blog posts! I have been working with MaxExposure for a little over a year as a marketing assistant. To give you a little background on me, I am originally from Connecticut, I am a marketing major attending Bentley University, I am a big red sox fan, and on the weekends you can catch me watching Friends reruns!

What do you do for MaxExposure?

I am responsible for creating and posting social media content for customers to maximize their social media engagement and following. I am also responsible for creating and publishing content on our MaxExposure blog to give our customers, and blog viewers, social media tips and inform them of new marketing trends to help them improve their own marketing strategy!

What is your favorite part of your job?

My favorite part of my job is hearing back from my boss, Aly, that one of my clients is loving the content I am posting for them. To know that I am not only helping a company increase their online following and sales, but that I’ve actually excited them about their social media account, and their business in general, is extremely rewarding.

I’ve also greatly enjoyed writing and publishing our MaxExposure blogs and learning about new marketing topics, tips, and trends that not only can help our customers, but make me a better marketer as well!

Why do you feel companies should choose MaxExposure?

I think companies looking to improve their marketing tactics and company profitability should choose MaxExposure because they are a family-run business. Being a family-run business means they are extremely invested in their customer’s satisfaction with our services. In using a larger marketing company, often times your only point of contact is “customer service” calls and email. At MaxExposure, any time a customer has a concern about their products, they have the opportunity to reach out and speak directly with the employee in charge of providing their services.

Speaking with the actual person in charge of the services gives the customer an opportunity to not only consult that employee regarding their concerns, but collaborate with them and get advice from an expert on how to improve.

What is your favorite MaxExposure product?

My favorite MaxExposure product is the new Website Builder product! A lot of small businesses have outdated or nonfunctional websites so being able to see the transformation of their online company image has been amazing!

How to Make your Job More Enjoyable

In today’s day and age, people are constantly complaining about their job, whether it be the workload, their colleagues, or their over demanding boss. Even if you love what you do, there are so many other factors coming into play that skew your level of enjoyment in your day to day at work.
“My boss was being so annoying today.”
“I’ve had so much work lately, I had to stay two hours later at the office last night.”
“I can’t stand the people in my department! They’re so under-qualified.”

There is no way of knowing what challenges you are going to encounter throughout your work week. Although these challenges or conflicts add to your stress and overall, tend to lead to a less enjoyable work week, there are things you can do to prevent that stress or frustration from affecting how much you enjoy your job. Below are 5 tips on how to improve your overall enjoyment at your job..
      1. Smile every morning
cropped-cropped-cropped-adobestock_57792388.jpegThis one sounds super cliche, but smiling every morning when you wake up, when you get in your car to go to work, and when you walk into the office, makes a huge difference in your work attitude. Smiling is a natural way of making you feel more relaxed and calm, and lowers your stress levels. You will generally feel much happier throughout the day and have a more positive outlook on your job by starting every morning with a smile.
2. Maintain a healthy lifestyle
We all know work can get pretty demanding and exhausting. We all have those days when we tell ourselves all day that we’re going to go to the gym after work, no matter how tired we are, no matter how much we want to crack open the leftover lasagna from last night, and then, when it comes time, you put those gym clothes on, and drive straight home to the lasagna (gym clothes are definitely more accommodating to the post-work binge eat). Although you feel tired at the end of the day, the more and more you skip the gym, and the more you choose lasagna as opposed to some healthy greens, the more tired you are going to feel. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle; eating healthy, working out, and staying hydrated, will not only make you feel better both physically and mentally, but will make you view your work as part of your lifestyle as opposed to something that interferes with your lifestyle. This will allow you to enjoy your work more, rather than resent working.
3. Decorate your workstation
Woman Working. Work space Concept, Woman Working Home Office Start up Ideas ConceptEveryone has a different office setup depending on how the company organizes its employees and what type of office space is used. Decorating your office or desk can make such a big difference in the overall atmosphere of your work space. Put up pictures of people or things that make you happy and make you smile. I was recently struggling to keep up a positive attitude with work, so I changed my phone background to a picture of my cousin’s new baby laughing. Although I received multiple accusations of having a child and not telling anyone (my boyfriend begged me to change my background), the picture made me smile and improved my overall attitude throughout the day.
4. Strengthen office network
The people you work with can vastly affect your overall happiness at your job. Although there are the occasional employee conflicts or disagreements, getting to know your coworkers outside of the office will improve your communication and lessen the conflict in the office. Going on employee outings on the weekends such as, going out to lunch, going to see a movie, getting coffee, holding an employee dinner, or even going out to a bar together, can greatly improve your relationship with your coworkers and strengthen communication both in and out of work. These experiences will also give you something to talk and laugh about with your employees, lessening the boring small talk and improving your connections with people, overall making work more appealing and enjoyable.

   5. Bring Yourself to your Job Everyday
This probably makes zero sense to you as of right now but let me explain. We go to work everyday, but would you say that you bring not only your work talents, but your personality to work everyday? Do you often find that you act extremely different, maybe rather boring, at work compared to how you act outside of work? I am sure you are great at what you do, and having the talents required for your specific job is extremely important. However, bringing your personality into the workplace cannot only increase your own personal happiness, but the happiness of your coworkers as well, and can even improve job performance. Bringing your personality with you to work allows you to feel more comfortable with your colleagues, and improves your relationship and connections with employees, and even clients. Job talent and personality combined leads to improved work ethic and performance, and can even lead to job promotions as well.
