A Day in the Life of a Marketing Representative

Brian is a Marketing Representative with AgriSompo. Follow along below as he walks you through a typical day in his role.


Brian checks emails and reviews his appointments and commitments for the day.

He likes to begin the morning by making sure he has taken care of any outstanding tasks from the day before so he can concentrate fully on the present day.


During the bulk of the day, Brian answers phone calls and emails from agents in between making in-person agency visits.

The conversations he has with agents throughout the day can cover many topics. Brian may help an agent understand government regulations, field questions about AgriSompo's software and procedures, and forge relationships with brand new agents.

Wrapping up the Day

As the day winds down, Brian double-checks emails and the phone to make sure he's addressed all questions or issues. His rule for himself is that all emails and calls from agents are answered on the day they are received.

At the end of the day, the only tasks left for tomorrow are those that don’t need immediate attention and don’t involve agent questions/concerns.
