One area of management skill that is not talked about at the level of importance it deserves is “managing-up.” What is this concept about and why is it so important to career development?For the vast majority of managers and executives, there is at least one or more management levels above their current position. A new manager will have multiple levels above them, and even the CEO has a Board of Directors to answer to let alone powerful shareholders. So, building your credibility by managing your reputation, credibility, visibility and influence with your direct manager and key people several layers above is managing up. It is a career advancement, must have, skill set.Any manager who aspires to move up in their company, or even in their industry, must take charge of their career development. Managing up is one of the most important keys to affect a managers career. It needs to be purposeful, credible and skill based. You need a regular and consistent plan. You can move in and out of it. You must manage-up as a regular part of who you are within your organization.It is important not to confuse blatant self promotion with managing up. When effectively managing-up, you will very often get others above your level to do the promoting for you. This result is almost a natural outcome of managing-up correctly. It can be compared to positioning yourself successfully. Managing how you are looked. It is about managing and controlling how you are perceived by people in positions of importance at management levels above yours. This positioning is at the center of managing your advancement.When promotions are available, when another division or line of business needs a manager, you want to be among the first considered. The higher the level of management, say executive vice presidents for example, the fewer the number of managers exist at that level. These managers know each other to varying degrees. They likely see each other at senior manager meetings or company functions. It is almost like a “club” in a positive sense. If you are at that level, you have peers that are known to you at the same level.When positions come available in one area, other managers will know about. The may even be consulted about the opening. Who do you want them to talk about when they are thinking about potential candidates? That won’t happen unless you have managed up with people at that level. Most aspiring managers do not take absolute charge of their own career development. They miss the advancement boat often times, not because they are not qualified, but because they are not known as “someone of interest.”There are a number of techniques for managing up. For the purpose of this article there are three to consider.1. Build a Career Development Plan. Think about where you want to be within your company and industry. where are your best opportunities? What are the trends and strategic directions of your organization? Read everything you can written and communicated by senior management that will shed light on the future direction. Ask questions of those at higher levels.2. Pinpoint your Skill Set. What skills do you possess that could be value added to those above you. this is not about what you do now, necessarily. This skill assessment should be broader. Every manager has things that they bring to the table whether they use them now or not. We are looking for things that you could offer to do/share with senior people above you when the opportunity arises.3. Net work, net work, net work. You have to identify senior people above you that could be approached to build a sincere relationship with as part of your development. Perhaps there are senior people that you could visit with to discuss ‘how best to develop your career.’ You can usually spot those that are open and approachable. In other situations, you can find someone to be a “mentor.” Perhaps you career development plan calls for a certain skill set to be expanded. Find a senior person known for that skill and meet about mentoring. You will often be surprised how open they may be to the idea.In the end, your career depends greatly on managing-up. Every manager needs to build a plan and pro-actively pursue it.

Do you want to know the secrets of successful internet marketers? Successful internet marketers are like professional athletes. They are the “crème de la crème” of the internet marketing world. Even though they may not seem famous and highly acclaimed as you think they should, they’re still the best of what they do. If you ever hear of someone making $2,000 per month online, and you look at them as if they are amateurs – you’re besides yourself.Do you know how hard it is to make $2,000 per month online? Some people would sacrifice their left pinky toe to have $2,000 per month automatically coming in. That’s why the failure rate of businesses online is so high. But successful internet marketers know that there is massive work involved, and you can’t look at internet marketing as if it’s a lottery drawing.Most people online who have been trying to make money for years believe that if they can get the best copywriter… the best product… or the best marketing consultant, that they can make $10,000 in month instantly. That’s just not true. For 98% of the people selling online, their chances of making $10,000 in one month will indeed come from the lottery. But successful internet marketers know that success online is not a “hit or miss” kind of thing.As a successful internet marketer myself, I can tell you that true success comes from planning. You have to know your numbers, you have to be diligent and persistent with your marketing, and your paid advertising has to make sense – and also bring in high quality traffic. I want to share with you why this is important, and why successful internet marketers have all of these things in common. Take a look at this:1) Successful internet marketers take their work seriouslyNow I just mentioned above that successful people online know their numbers, are persistent, and know that their marketing makes sense. Because of this, they plan ahead with a daily marketing agenda that will help them to reach all 3 of these goals all at the same time. Let me ask you: Before you invested a dime into paid advertising, have you ever took a look at your competition and investigated the nuts and bolts of their operation?Sometimes to be a successful internet marketer, you have to play customer. You have to buy your competitors’ product, see how good the product is, and take notice at how they market to you over and over again to get more sales from you. If you want to copy your competitors’ and have the successful business that they have, you can’t just do some of the things that they are doing… you have to do ALL of the things that they are doing.If they have a online help desk system, you need that. If they have a phone support team, you need that. If they’re selling online as well as offline to prospects and customers, you need to do that also. Don’t think that these people just woke up one day, threw up an ad an somewhere and instantly became successful. It doesn’t work that way. Most people who try to copy their competitors have no idea what they’re doing. So plan ahead and have all of these things ready to go the next time you want to copy a rival in your niche to make money.2) Successful internet marketers have a routineDo you have a daily marketing routine, or do you wake up everyday browsing other peoples’ websites and reading their site? You will never get anywhere by operating like this. A lot of people do this simply because they have no idea of what to do! They’ve read countless books, courses, emails, articles and still have no clue as of what to do NEXT. What you need to do is develop an internet marketing routine that can be executed daily like clockwork.This means that you should go and create yourself a daily marketing plan on a simply text file on your computer. And every single day when you wake up – or when you normally do your marketing – follow each step exactly daily. This is essential because you’re more likely to make money and see results of your business if you write a plan out first, and then visually follow it everyday.So yes, the internet marketer that’s making $2,000 per month online has a daily marketing routine. If you were to take a look at the inside of their operations, you would see tons of content being produced, ads tracked and analyzed, free marketing being implemented, and a time span of when all of this is supposed to be done. You don’t want to spend 12 hours per day in front of your computer trying to do every trick in the world.A lot people enjoy buying “bulk submitters” because they think it will simplify their marketing and bring them massive instant results. And more than likely, I’m pretty sure you’ve tried your hand at these bulk submitters also. But these bulk submitters won’t do anything for you, plus… they’re not 100% automatic! Even though they advertise that they are!Don’t rely on products like these to do your marketing. It won’t get you anywhere and it won’t give you the results that you’re looking for. And it won’t get you the results because websites and companies are constantly cracking down on these idiotic products, and banning people from their platform who get caught using them. If you’re submitting low quality work and information everyday, how will that benefit your targeted prospect? Why should they view you as an obvious expert in your niche if you’re putting out low quality information? Does that make sense to you? It sure doesn’t to me.If you want to be a successful internet marketer, you need to take these words to heart. Change the way that you are doing things and start implementing all of the CORRECT advice that you read. Don’t do it half-way. Do it exactly as shown online with what is said, shown, and read. This way you will know that you did each technique 100% correctly, and you did the best that you could.
