How do I find marketing people in USA, who will work on commissions-only basis to market for IT consulting?
We are a 2 person start-up company. We have purchased a company with 10 years history, very good credit rating, and at zero employees, in NorthEast USA. Since we are tight on budget and are working as full time consultants ourselves, we are unable to market and expand the company. We were wondering if there are any websites/resources (besides posting an Ad on a jobs website) which we can explore to communicate to potential IT services marketing personnel in the NorthEast USA, to see if we can work on a commission-only basis initially. Once we start serving 2-3 clients and place a few consultants, we can afford to switch to a salary + commission option. This can be a great option for a marketing person who has contacts in the market but would like to work from home or work flex-time. Thank You!
How can I enter the marketing industry without a business degree?
I am currently in my third and final year of completing a Bachelor of Arts in English and French. For a General Education paper (at my university we have to take two papers from faculties that have nothing to do with our own degrees) I took a marketing paper... and I've decided that I would absolutely love to pursue a career in marketing. My marketing lecturer says that marketing is as much of an art as it is a science. On that basis, is it possible I would be able to enter the marketing industry with my English (and French) degree?

What is the difference between a marketing campaign and a promotion?
My belief is that promotion is more broad than a marketing campaign (think the four p's). A marketing campaign is found within promotion. I was also assuming a campaign is a strategy of speaking to a particular segment within your target. Is this the case? What if, for example, you have marketing activities you are doing specifically for Christmas. Could this be the Christmas promotion within a wider campaign?
Is masters in marketing analytics a valuable degree or should i go the traditional MBA route?
I'm looking to go into marketing but i heard marketing by itself (ex: brand management, which is where i would like to end up) is a very soft degree due to it's limited quantitative focus. I was thinking about doing marketing analytics instead, which has a lot of focus on statistics, excel, sas, multivariate testing, etc. I'm also considering an MBA but that would again just be regular marketing but an MBA is a better known degree. The school I would do marketing analytics at is NYU, the MBA would be from a slightly lower level school like Rutgers. Which is better?

How useful is a dual degree in marketing and psychology?
I am a psychology major right now and am trying to find a more practical application, so adding a marketing degree seems like a good option. When applying for a job (a more marketing-focused job) would having a degree in psychology help set me apart from other applicants who just have marketing degrees? Would a psychology minor be just as useful as the major? I don't want to waste my time getting the dual degree if it will not make me any more attractive to employers or open up any other job opportunities for me. Any advice?
