ERA Advertising – Why Work For Us?


We are Boutique Advertising Firm

When it comes to the best advertising firms, many people believe a boutique advertising firm is the provider of choice. Quite a few associate the word boutique with a small clothing store that sells exclusive items, yet it refers to any business that serves a specialized or sophisticated niche. This type of agency tends to be smaller than its competitors, offers more personalized service, and is more cost-effective for the client.

Remember the movie Jerry McGuire? This film is about a boutique sports agency, with Tom Cruise serving in the role as the agent. He offered personalized service, one client at a time, and that’s what an advertising firm of this type strives to do.

See Our Awesome Core Values

Brand Management
BOOM! It’s all about grabbing their attention, but the question is can you keep it? Content is EVERYTHING. We believe that our brand isn’t just important, it shows what we stand for values wise as a company.

Customer Acquisitions
Having a solid customer acquisition strategy is an essential component for any business. Without it, you're going to seriously struggle to grow your business in any kind of meaningful way.

Marketing
With today’s ever-shifting market, it is essential to stay up to date on current trends. The dialogue between companies and consumers is changing! Consumers prefer active exchanges rather than traditional, passive interactions. Consumers crave real human interaction.

Customer Service
What we do and the approach we take gives immeasurable results, marketing is more than just securing consumers for our clients, it’s about creating a relationship that lasts.

ERA’s Management Training Program
ERA provides unlimited promotional opportunities for each individual who joins our team based 100% on achievement not seniority. By pushing our candidates to step outside of their comfort zones while practicing their newly acquired skills alongside more advanced team members, they achieve fantastic goals in exceptionally short amounts of time, with many advancing into management positions within six to nine months. All management starts at entry-level with lessons in marketing, teaching, training, and developing other team members, and mastering the back-end of business operations. From there, successful team members move into either an Corporate Trainer position to oversee and manage a campaign or into a Management position where they launch a new territory and run their own office.

So, leave the corporate struggle to advancement behind you, and join a team of high-achieving, hard-working and motivated individuals now!

A large aspect of our company culture is personal development.

Personal development is the investment into improving yourself, it involves accepting responsibility for your life and taking conscious actions to improve it with the right coaching and training. We believe in promoting solely from within which allows us to work hand in hand to develop our team as opposed to bringing new managers from the outside in. This allows us as an organization to hold each other accountable, and the best part is that we never ask individuals on the team to do something we haven’t done ourselves! We provide opportunities of advancement to every individual who joins the team and we base these off of achievement and not seniority. We believe that practicing day to day operations with integrity, building long lasting relationships, and committing to always giving it our 100%; together we can create a new ERA in the marketing industry together as a family.

    I have been working at ERA Advertising full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Prior to working at Era I worked for myself so it has taken some getting used to. I didn’t exactly understand why they run a group meeting every morning or why they get together and hangout one night at week at team night, but now that I’ve been here for a while I completely understand! They do this to keep the momentum from day to day and I get so much out of each meeting and team night. There’s such a family environment here, which I love! The Era team has helped me gain so much personal development and taught me what true professionalism looks like. I’ve learned how to face adversity and problem solve. This is a fast paced business, so through trying to keep up, I’ve learned how to adapt much quicker than before. Working at Era has shown me how marketing and sales coincide.

    Cons

    It takes about 3-4 weeks of working here to really get a grasp on everything and to know if you are truly in it or not. I’m so glad I stuck it out for that amount of time because otherwise I would have quite prematurely and missed out on an amazing opportunity with a great group of people. This is the type of job where you have to take the initiative. Everyone is here to pick you up and help you along the way but nobody is going to hold your hand and do the work for you.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone understands that things move quickly here and they’re not going to get it straight out of the gate, or at least the majority won’t. I completely trust and believe in my boss here. I understand now why the schedule can change overnight, but I didn’t understand that a lot of it was due to the clients we work with and how their schedules change. I think it would be helpful to explain that a little better to new employees so they don’t think you all just makes changes to make changes. With that said, this is the first time I’ve completely trusted and believed in a boss!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ERA Advertising (Fairfield, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was brief, but very thorough. They got to the point quickly and we both benefited in a half-hour meeting. They were able to convey their vision quickly and understandably. The questions asked of my previous work experience made sense and I feel gave them a good idea of how specific and how broad my skill set is. At the end of the interview I was intrigued to continue exploring options with ERA Advertising.
