 "An apprenticeship is a system of training a new generation of practitioners of a trade or profession with on-the-job training and often some accompanying study (classroom work and reading)." - Wikipedia

"Apprenticeship is an arrangement that includes a paid-work component and an educational or instructional component, wherein an individual obtains workplace-relevant knowledge and skills." - United States Department of Labor

 

Message from the CEO:

Congratulations! You’ve found what I’m very proud to call the best, paid marketing fast track apprenticeship in the U.S.A. This is a 100% paid employee remote working position.

An apprenticeship gives you a paycheck from day one that is guaranteed to increase over time as you learn new skills, hands-on career training, an education with the potential to earn college credit, and most importantly a career once you complete your apprenticeship with a competitive income, and little or no educational debt.

We do have a strict residency requirement. You must currently, or plan to reside, in one of the following states for at least the first six months of your apprenticeship:

  • Georgia
  • Idaho
  • Arkansas
  • Indiana
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Tennessee
  • Pennsylvania
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Oklahoma
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Wisconsin
  • Wyoming 
  • New Hampshire
  • Alabama
  • California

This is due to favorable business climates in these states so we can train you.

You enjoy the comfort, convenience, and no-hassle commute of working where you like. But make no mistake, this is a professional role.

Working from home, at a coffee shop, library, or other locations are the trend. As of last year, 43% of the US workforce worked from home.

You’ll need a quiet, distraction-free work space with a door you can shut, a desk for a blazing fast laptop workstation we’ll provide (and headset), and your own internet connection.

Working from home isn’t for everyone, but if you’re self-motivated and disciplined, this apprenticeship will give you the autonomy and hands-on training you need to be a highly paid marketing professional.

We believe know the timeless apprenticeship model is best way to train exceptional marketing professionals in the 21st century.

Our government thinks so, too. And get this...

Marketing and advertising is one of the highest paying jobs that does not require a professional degree/license (doctor, attorney, etc). The median pay for a marketing, advertising and promotions professional is $127,560 a year ($61.33 an hour).

It's also a profession that gives you a lot of freedom and work-life balance if you manage your time right. The need for your skills is growing and in extremely high demand, too.

The learning will never stop for you to get and keep a career in the 21st century.

At the completion of your training, you will be able to:

  1. Secure an appointment with any business owner
  2. Research their service so you understand them
  3. Write a sales message for direct response to an offer
  4. Create a landing page to generate a sales lead
  5. Write and send an email to drive people to the page
  6. Run a Facebook ad to drive people to the page
  7. Run a YouTube ad to drive people to the page
  8. Run a Banner ad to drive people to the page
  9. Host and promote a webinar to build awareness
  10. Book your client on industry podcasts for awareness
  11. Run online advertising to a cold audience for awareness

Here is an overview of the marketing plan you'll implement with your new skills: 

Upon your hire, you'll fly to our office in downtown San Diego - at our expense - to meet your team before you start training.

As a Vyral Marketing Apprentice, you'll start a very in-depth coaching and training plan to make sure you receive a full time job offer to earn $50,000 a year within 1 year.

You'll also get fully reimbursed travel to attend partner seminars, conferences, and events worldwide. We pay for all your expenses (hotel, flight, food, taxi, etc).

You'll learn the business of your clients, and while you're there, help them capture content for the marketing you'll do for them such as promotional sizzle reels, livestreaming, or audio/video recording for post-event product sales, blog videos, newsletter content and more.

These are examples of typical events you would attend. We attend 20-30 events a year.

Here's an example of a mention we get on stage when we do great work for our strategic partners. Everyone in their audience is a potential client of our firm. 

This position is designed for someone who is not happy with their current career path and who will do the work to become a highly paid marketing professional.

You’ll train daily via Skype every morning from 8am-9am PST with Peter and Sandy, and then with myself and our team for marketing training every Thursday from 7am-2pm PST to get the skills and mindset necessary to help professional service providers get customers and clients.

You must be available at these set times for training, which is done as a small group over a video conference. The rest of your hours are flexible.

You'll also get a weekly one-on-one meeting for personal goal setting and feedback to be scheduled when you like.

You get 12 hours a week of hands on marketing training

We are a Results Only Work Environment (ROWE) so you get to chose how you work.

Please only apply if you can make these training times short of any vacation time, which we can record the training for you if you can't make it.

Meet your sales instructors Sandy North and Peter McDonald

Meet your marketing instructor Adela Dover

We hire only the best at Vyral Marketing.

Don't worry - no marketing experience is necessary. This is an entry level position. We can teach you the skills.

You must be able to work a minimum of 25 hours a week as you'll start part time. You will work with us over Skype as an integral team member.

This is a perfect position for someone who works a second job for temporary, supplemental income (or who attends school) in the evenings since required training/work hours are in the morning, to early afternoon, depending on your time zone.

You will transition to full time over the course of your apprenticeship based on performance, to ultimately earn $50,000 full time by the end of one year.

You will get a fair, in-depth, and respectful interview to share your accomplishments.

What are we looking for in a great apprentice? One word – character.

We look for these nine specific traits in a marketing professional:

  • Initiative, resilience, and teamwork
  • Discipline, trainability, and judgement
  • Leadership, maturity, and curiosity

We’ll ask you what these traits mean to you and to tell us stories of how they have showed up in your life.

You will also get a call back from my assistant within 1 business day when you apply.

Trust me, I hated it as much as you do when I applied for positions and didn't get a call back. This is not one of those interview experiences.

Qualified applicants will be invited to a group Skype meeting with myself, Scott, and Sara to explain the position and to answer your questions, which after that you'll start the formal interview process.

If you want to apply, please apply using the "Apply Now" button on this page to receive the fastest call-back.

Look forward to meeting you!

Vyral Marketing Apprentice

"Like most college graduates I turned to indeed to figure out what my next move would be. I graduated with a Marketing and Management degree, so naturally, Marketing would be in my search engine (though being a marketing student is not a requirement). I stumbled upon this work from home position with Vyral Marketing and thought it was too good to be true, but I applied anyway. Within an hour I received a phone call, that is when I stopped and decided I would really research this company. I went to the apprenticeship page and read it all, watched the videos, went to the website and started reading what they do. I instantly knew this was exactly what I’ve been wanting since I chose Marketing as my major.

For me, the process started very quickly, within 24 hours I was through the first 4 steps of this 12 step hiring process. Advice to those looking to apply don’t be afraid of the one way video interview with spark hire, you have plenty of time to record your answers and they are really looking for your personality to shine through. The conference call with Frank is when I started to believe these were real people on the other end of a computer. Then within that week, I completed steps 5 & 6, I talked with Sara who makes you feel like family already and gets you really excited for this opportunity! After this the process slowed down, I applied in early August and the Apprenticeship didn’t start until October however, in September the process picked back up and then it went really quick again and by the end of September I was flying to San Diego.

When I finally got to San Diego and met everyone it instantly felt like a family, everyone you meet will be so friendly and willing to help you. The weekend we spent in San Diego was extremely informative, when people would ask me about it I could only respond with, “It was just a brain dump of knowledge.” You will learn so much about the company this weekend, from the vision and story behind the company, you’ll meet every person in the San Diego area that works for Vyral Marketing, have an explanation of what it is you’ll be doing over the next year, and you will get to see what the apprentices before you are doing. Everyone will spend the entire day together and make you feel like you are already family, even the CEO Frank, from everyone eating together, to relaxing outside, and exploring the beach.

Today will complete my first week working with Vyral Marketing, and even though I live in Texas and work completely from home, I still feel connected to the office in San Diego. We have daily meetings, weekly 1on1’s, and everyone is welcome to you messaging them at any time. The culture at Vyral Marketing is so apparent every day, and you are constantly being pushed to dive more into everything you do, it’s not like normal job training, your curiosity will be pushed about everything! Unlike normal group work you are used to in school where everyone is just interested in themselves, Vyral Marketing is a real team everyone works together to help each other be the best they can be. It may be a new feeling to have so many people genuinely be so interested in your development as a person, it was for me. Every day it continues and it is all so optimistic and drives me to learn everything I can and just absorb everything to become the next great Marketer.

I’m so thankful for this opportunity, in Marketing everything is about experience and that is what we will be getting from Vyral Marketing."

Jeff Julia

Vyral Marketing Apprentice

Before I started the apprenticeship, I had “celebrated” my 30th birthday, started a part-time consulting business and published a book in the energy space. So naturally it made sense to commit to a digital marketing apprenticeship, right?

Turning 30 is a time of reflection for some, myself included. When I realized I had been trying to teach myself digital marketing over the past year (ad-hoc style) and my career coach nudged me to explore getting paid to learn this “skillset of the 21st century”, I begrudgingly heeded his advice.

There is a world of difference between an internship and an apprenticeship. And the Vyral team did a great job making it very transparent what the 1-year apprenticeship program was all about.

The post on Indeed was congruent with the website and both matched the video explaining the program - the curriculum is very clearly laid out.

It all really spoke to me, who I am, and what I was seeking.

Honesty, congruency, transparency, these core values were very important to me. It was clear Vyral possessed all three and practiced what they preached - which was very attractive.

Entrepreneurial, fiercely independent, high character creatives is who they were calling for – me!

Choosing to apply was an easy decision.

The application process was as innovative and cutting edge as I have seen, which further cemented my interest. The entire focus is on who the applicant is as a person. Skills can be taught, values and character cannot.

I have really been blown away by the top-tier professional development foundational to the apprenticeship.

What is the mindset of a highly-paid expert? How do they leverage themselves? What’s the difference between being entrepreneurial and purposeful? Why is authenticity so critical? What are the 4 stages of learning and how do you know which stage you’re in?

With this strong foundation, the marketing skillset cannot only be taught, the apprentice can excel and apply it to truly be financially secure.

While I am still only a few weeks in, I can see the changes in my own mindset, how I can leverage myself, how I can be more purposeful, what authenticity looks like for me.

I have a clearer understanding of what attraction marketing is and is not, and what all is involved in succeeding.

Not only in the apprenticeship, but in life.

Vyral Marketing Apprentice

"As a current junior in college I did what every college kid does before their senior year...look for an internship. After all, who in the world would hire a college graduate with absolutely no work-world experience? I had worked as a nanny, lifeguard, anesthesia technician, and a swim instructor, all of which were jobs that had nothing to do with my degree in progress, which was a Bachelors of Science in Public Relations and Mass Communications. To be honest, the word “apprenticeship” was foreign to me and I wasn’t familiar with the term. When I saw the post on Indeed, the first thing I thought was SCAM. Who in their right mind would take someone with no experience and literally teach them to be a marketer?

Now, I was a nursing major my first two years of college, so the world of sales and marketing was/still is very new to me. It was scary declaring such a big career and major change, especially after being told by my parents that being a doctor or a nurse was the way to go. It took a lot of strength and initiative to dive into a field that sparked my curiosity but I did not know much about. I went ahead and clicked ‘apply’ and to be frank, I didn’t think I would get a call. Then, less than 24 hours later I received a phone call letting me know I made it to the next round. The word “scam” was still floating around in my head though. What do these people see in me? I went through a spark-hire interview, webinar chat, personality test, and these people STILL were interested in me. I took it as a sign that there was great potential for me in the marketing world and Vyral Marketing was the first to see it. Just with talking to my fellow apprentices and marketers here at Vyral, I have learned more about the marketing world than I have in school. The detail and clarification about the program completely eased my conscious about accepting the position. It wasn’t a scam, it was a gift to be chosen. That is why I am anxious to see where this program takes me. It will go beyond the classroom and give me the opportunity to learn and be hands-on in a field I’ve known about for less than 3 months. Bringing out my creative and sociable side is something I have looked for in a career for a very long time, and it didn’t match up for me in the healthcare world. I am very fortunate and grateful to have been chosen to be a part of the Vyral family!"

My life before Vyral has been a treacherous journey of professional discovery and personal accomplishments. To become the first in my family’s generation to receive an invitation to attend a major University without the help of athletics is huge for me. Excelling past that limitation has been the hallmark of my achievement and I will never forget it. For the past 5 years, I have taken my talents to the field of Hospitality Management in which I have tried to carve my path to success with that very same ambition that has gotten me through my university studies 

When life threw me the proverbial curveball I had to reevaluate my newly obtained career ambitions while looking towards the future. I began searching work from home opportunities that would fit my business persona and allow me to exploit my true talents to the benefit of myself and others. Upon this search, I found Vyral, a company I knew very little about but offered me the opportunity to take myself to the next level. I reluctantly went through its extensive process of selection which I wasn’t sure I could make it through. I used the belief Sara had in me to give me the strength and patience to go through each step of the Vyral screening process until the very end.

Now I am an apprentice, a part of a team, that is making a difference in the lives of business professionals who are looking to spread an educational message to their target market. I give my thanks to Frank, Scott, Sarah, Peter, Sandy, Danny, Adela, Alex, and my fellow apprentices Jeff, Hannah, Sophia, Matt, and Ernie for allowing me to be a part of this team of business professionals. This journey of a thousand miles truly began with one step in the right direction, upward.

Sandy North

Vyral Marketing Apprentice

"As an upcoming college graduate, I did what most do when the reality of graduation sets in. I began my career search. With a background in psychology I wanted to be able to use my knowledge of how we think and how things make us feel. My first thought was human resources. Then I dug a little deeper. I have always loved the idea of expressing creativity in my work. So, I narrowed my search to Marketing. After an exhaustive search, and finding very little that appealed to me that was local, I realized I was due for a change. After living in the New England area for most of my life I knew I wanted to be somewhere warm. California was always on my radar but never thought it would become a reality. When I stumbled upon Vyral, the job ad was an absolute dream. It was well thought out, clear, and concise. Unlike most internships it left very little to question. When I think of an internship, I think busy work, and having little organization. But Vyral was just the opposite, it had everything I was looking for; structure, flexibility, and growth. The ad gave a detailed syllabus as to what a new hire was to expect. I immediately applied. I was astonished when I received a reply within three hours of my submission. I then began the great excursion of the interview process. Much like the job ad this was anything but typical. Vyral used a variety of mediums. Such as, personality tests, a one-way video interview, one-on-one video chats, and finally an in-person dinner. Having a fair share of interview experience, I foolishly believed I would go through the same wave of nerves and be given little feedback on how the process was going. But it was quite the contrary. I was given feedback throughout the process and felt very comfortable talking to the team. One of the final steps was dinner with the CEO, VP of Business Development, a current intern, and a handful of applicants. I left feeling welcomed, and confident in my decision to make the trip. Given the extensive process I could tell they weren’t just looking for someone to fill a position, they were looking for a teammate and an addition to the San Diego family. After a little less than a month I was presented with an offer. Elated, I quickly accepted. I was flown out to meet the rest of the team and other hires that will be joining me on the adventure to self-growth and becoming a full time hire at Vyral Marketing on my third week of the program. While there I felt at home. Frank and Scott are enthusiastic, passionate and committed to helping their employees succeed. They are some of the most genuine people I have ever come across. I currently work remotely from home in Rhode Island. Although not a requirement for this program, I plan to move to San Diego as soon as possible. For anyone seeking growth, value, and autonomy in their everyday work, Vyral is the place for you." 

Peter McDonald

Vyral Marketing Apprentice

"I learned about the apprenticeship with Vyral Marketing at one of SDSU’s many career fairs and I was immediately intrigued. After a short conversation about day to day activities I knew Vyral had exactly the position I had been looking for. I applied later that day and true to Vyral’s claim got a call the very next day. After the initial screening, I was invited to dinner at Frank’s home along with other applicants and though I thought the process was rather odd I quickly learned why Frank wanted to meet with us. Frank is an incredibly smart and honest person and that became clear within minutes of sitting down to dinner with him. Over the course of our meal he explained the ins and outs of the position with precise clarity and as he outlined the duties of the position I began to realize how much I could learn from him. I could tell that he had nothing but good intentions for his apprentices and that he wanted us to learn and grow within the company. Needless to say, when I was offered the position I was ecstatic and could not wait to start learning about using video, photography, and writing to market the excellent services and products of Vyral’s clients. It has been one week since I started at Vyral and I have already learned more from the amazing people that work here than I did from many of my classes. Moreover, Frank held a meeting for all the apprentices and explained his plan for us over the next year and beyond. He left nothing out, he explained how we made money, how the company made money, his vision for the company, his expectations for us, and how we would achieve Vyral’s goals together. By the time the meeting was over I could barely contain my excitement and I called my mom right away to tell her everything that was happening. If the past week is any indication of what’s to come, I expect I will be with Vyral Marketing for a long time. In the coming months, I hope to learn everything I haven’t throughout my college career and I have no doubt in my mind that I will be able to market products and services with brilliance by the time this apprenticeship is over."

"The goal is to provide a solution to business owners and give them a peace of mind. I firmly believe that you must align your goals with the company’s goals to excel. Therefore, I have become passionate about working at Vyral Marketing because we genuinely help people solve their pains in the workforce.

There are mandatory meetings with the sales and marketing teams to insure optimum productivity every week. Communication between employees is very open and transparent. We use Google Chat or Slack if we have any questions within the company. My current role is focused on inbound sales. Anyone who is interested in using our service must have a consultation call with our President, Sara.

While scheduling consultation calls for Sara, I am also reading books and drafting sales messages to be prepare for the upcoming marketing role. Essentially, we are getting paid to learn and very soon use the tools to help industry professionals grow their business and stay top of mind.

We manage our own clients. This entails periodic communication (either face to face or digitally), copywriting, Facebook Ads, producing video reels, promoting events, and much more depending on client needs.

In addition, I am working with three different clients in three different industries and it has been a fantastic experience. Furthermore, a face to face meeting took place to gather research about the companies along with crafting a well-developed marketing strategy that will help grow their business. Going into my first meeting I was nervous yet confident because of the techniques I learned through Vyral and my marketing background from San Diego State University.

Before I knew it, I found myself giving advice on things that I’ve never dealt with in the industry and it felt surreal because the owners were taking notes. At that moment, I realized that asking the right questions with conviction opens a path of information that if understood correctly, can be the key to one’s success in the sales and marketing field within any business.

Frank, the CEO of Vyral Marketing, takes the time to meet with us and answer any questions we have. In fact, he is consistently sharing examples and stories that relate to challenges we face and my confidence continues to grow the more I listen and understand. In addition, not many companies out there give you the opportunity to work face to face with the CEO, let alone travel with them to events, but I could be wrong.

Other than seeing us succeed, Frank continues to devote time to teach us his successful methods and take them to the next level. First month at Vyral, I was invited to the KW MAPS Coaching Mastermind in LA. That experience allowed me to see how the Frank presents himself as well as how clients / potential clients perceived him and Vyral.

To be honest, I was very skeptical in the beginning but as I interacted with the company on a daily basis my mind became at ease. Like all things in life, have an open mind coming in and allow yourself to experience the culture first hand before making any judgements.

Every company has core values. Vyral’s core values resonate because they align with my values which give me the strength to better myself every day. More importantly, staying humble no matter how fortunate or unfortunate I may be. Every individual is fighting their own battle, who am I to make it any harder?  

At Vyral Marketing there are mentors, friends, and a professional environment filled with beautiful intellectual minds ready to crush."

"When I left Romania and moved to US, I had to start everything from ground zero…I had no friends, no family, no job, or career. Even though I had a Master's degree in Marketing from a Romanian University, I couldn’t do anything with it here.

I was working in sales previously, so I started to apply for different sales jobs. Day after day I would wake up in the morning, go on different job sites and apply for different positions.  I would submit 5 resumes a day…that was my goal…but I didn’t get any real feedback! 

You can imagine how disappointed I was…until one day. I remember I got another one of those canned email from one company telling me I was not a fit for them. Instead of giving up, the very next moment I went on indeed.com and applied for another job. It was an inside sales position, but what caught my eye was the fact that they were looking for a future leader, entrepreneur, someone who was willing to learn and was interested in self-development! So, I applied!

In the next 5 minutes I got 2 emails, both from Frank Klesitz, CEO of Vyral Marketing. One was a “Thank you” email and the other one was a video with Scott Sillari…the guy who supposedly would call me the next day. I don’t know about you, but I thought it was a complete scam!

Luckily, it wasn’t! Scott indeed called me the following day and after a series of interviews, an assessment test, and an audition, I got the job!

I started as an outbound propector. My responsibilities included:  reaching out to potential clients and prospects, listening and speaking with them on the phone about how we may be able to help them; going to industry related events and masterminds; doing quick demos over the phone; setting appointments for our senior consultant and so on.  I learned how to communicate with business professionals and how to handle rejection, how to continuously stay positive and make sure that with every conversation I have I can deliver some helpful information to the person on the other line.

Now, I am about 2 months away from celebrating my 1 year anniversary at Vyral and if I would have to share with you ONE thing about working here that would be: GET READY TO LEARN A LOT!

Both Frank, the CEO and Scott, the VP of New Business are genuinely interested in teaching you everything they know and make sure you become very successful.

We meet with Frank every week for 3 hours and we learn about marketing, sales, communication, latest technology, online marketing, Facebook ads, Youtube ads, everyday business practices. Every time I meet with him I have an “a-ha” moment, I learn something new. He shares with us a lot of training material and he also puts together an internal library full of great books that you can check out and read. How awesome is that!?

Everyone here is very warm and welcoming and immediately you will feel like you are part of a big family!

Now, don’t think that everything is just milk and honey! If you live in reality, you know that's never going to happen. I had moments of frustration lots of times: sometimes maybe because  one prospect promised that he will sign up tomorrow and he ended-up signing up after 2 months, or maybe because no one would answer the phone that day, or someone would be rude and hung up on me. With that, I learned to stay positive, move on and concentrate on what matters.

Vyral is a fast paced environment and sometimes there are a lot changes going on. We work in the digital marketing area and we need to keep up with all the updates in the industry.  One week you may be told to implement one strategy, the next week you may be told to change your approach. At first, in this type of situations, I would be like “What the heck is going on now?” but in time I understood that change is good and every uncomfortable situation that you find yourself in, will help you grow!

So here are a few things to keep in mind if you want to succeed at Vyral, and not only here, but generally in life…

  • be open minded
  • embrace change
  • always stay positive and have a smile on your face
  • get ready to learn, ask questions and be curious
  • seize the opportunities
  • don’t take things personally
  • ask for feedback and be proactive

I am very excited for what’s coming next. Soon I will fully transition into the Marketing Program where I will work with partners from different industries. I will have the chance to apply everything I learned so far and more importantly, help these partners grow their business.

I am very grateful for this opportunity and for being surrounded with smart  people...you know what they say...you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with, so make it count!"

Getting Paid to Learn.

My experience at Vyral Marketing

I can’t believe it’s already been 6 months at Vyral Marketing and the Apprenticeship is about to be over. I’m days away from transitioning into my 50k Salary and just thinking about all the learning, knowledge and training that was retained in such a short amount of time is astonishing.

I remember being handed our syllabus and feeling so overwhelmed that I wasn’t going to make it through – fueled with self-doubt, hesitation and the feeling of not having what it took to reach that finish line.

I’d be lying if I said there weren’t some days I thought about walking away and throwing in the towel because of the stress, amount of work and the constant battle with communication and learning how pivotal it really is to not only create that relationship with your client, but to keep that relationship strong each and every day.

We work remote – so people automatically assume that there is no company culture within Vyral. However, I’ve never felt so close to my piers to the point of which I consider them family.

My CEO, Frank Klesitz and my VP, Scott Sillari, are my mentors, family and the voice of reason when I need advice, guidance or just that extra push of ambition on days where I’m lost within my own headspace.

My co-workers are my teammates, my friends and the people I get to constantly have conversations with about new ideas, concepts and examples when I need a fresh new perspective on projects and marketing.

We meet every morning and have Team Masterminds every few months to go over how we can improve, progress and expand not just as individuals but also, as a team personally and professionally.

Truthfully, I thought after college I was never going to get the chance to learn again. I thought I would have to attend grad school and be forced into debt just to be able to continue to progress as a person and challenge myself as a student.

A lot of the time people ask the most intriguing question,

“What is the last book you read and what are you currently reading?”

As an English Major, my whole life has been reading and writing and after I graduated I strayed away from my passion and found myself at a complete loss as to what my next move was in terms of life, self growth and a career path.

Vyral Marketing gave me the opportunity to learn while getting paid.

Over the last 6 months I have read cover to cover,

  1. “The Ultimate Marketing Plan” – Dan Kennedy
  2. “The Ultimate Sales Letter” – Dan Kennedy
  3. “The Adweek Copywriting Handbook” –Joseph Sugarman
  4. “Facebook Advertising” – Perry Marshalll

and now I am currently reading, “Thank You for Being Late” – Thomas L. Friedman

and have two more books up next that I’m beyond eager to get started.

My Netflix time has been significantly cut in half not because I’m being forced to pick up these books but because I genuinely enjoy what I’m gaining from this content.

We have a communal library full of a limitless amount of books and training material that our team has access to 24/7. Every day, I find myself falling head over heels with literature, learning and now, falling in love with my career.

I thought after completing this apprenticeship I would reach the finish line knowing absolutely everything there is to possibly understand about the marketing world, communication and consulting.

The truth is,

I’m just getting started.

Frank said it from day one. The learning never stops and 80% of this is communication and the other 20% is marketing. It’s always important to keep an open mind when you’re stepping out of your comfort zone – but if I’ve gained anything from this experience – it’s that you should never question the process.

The more I questioned the process and the material – the more I struggled with enjoying the journey and I realized, the harder I worked, the more time and energy I chose to put in day in and day out…

I suddenly found myself loving the struggle because it allowed me to appreciate the success.

Just like Facebook, YouTube and all aspects of technology, it’s going to be constantly evolving and I’ve learned that you can go one of two ways. You can fall behind or learn the material to conquer the field. With confidence and excitement, I can now say I’m on the path of learning how to master each and every social platform to the best of my ability while being surrounded by a team who shares the same passion, drive and motivation as me.

We all want to constantly learn and become the best versions of ourselves while improving the life of others. Getting the opportunity to work within a company that wants to grow as much as I do – is honestly a blessing and I hope that any other 24-year-old who feels as lost as I did after graduating – gets a chance to experience something like this.

I know I have a long journey ahead of me and there are still going to be moments where I want to give up, give in and get out – but if I’ve learned anything within these 6 months is that I can confidently say that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be on the path leading to where I want to go.

From Me to You:

Don’t take anything personally.

If someone gives you constructive criticism take that as a compliment. Someone else is taking time out their day and thoughts out of their mind to help YOU improve.

Recognize that.

There are going to be moments where you want to give up because you’re tired, you’ve had too much and you’re aggravated because for the last 60+ hours you worked on a project that you either had to gut or change entirely because the client you created it for wasn’t pleased or they had something else envisioned.

Those hours weren’t a waste of time. It was a learning experience that will make you better.

Recognize that.

There are going to be emails upon emails you write to either a client or a prospect and often, you may not get the response you we’re looking for or sometimes, you wont get a response at all.

It doesn’t mean they don’t like you as a person or you’re not good enough. That person may have something going on personally or professionally or maybe they just don’t need the marketing service you’re offering to supply.

Print out those emails.

Study those emails.

Rewrite those emails and find ways to improve your communication by finding a persons need through research, communication and empathy.

The people who never answered you, untimely made you better.

Recognize that.

As long as you choose to embrace this experience and have the need, want desire and passion to learn something new every single day that you’re here…

you will succeed at Vyral Marketing.

-Alexandra Smith

What's it like to be a Vyral Marketing Apprentice?

1 Year Paid Digital Marketing Apprenticeship

Vyral Marketing is offering a paid one year hourly entry level marketing apprenticeship opportunity that guarantees you learn key, real-world internet marketing and client building skills with a $50,000 full time income plus bonus job offer upon successful completion.

This is a part-time, hourly paid W2 employee plus bonus entry level position. This is not a contract, on-demand, or commission-only based position.

Learn more at: http://www.getvyral.com/apprenticeship

Your training includes a daily group meeting every morning with a senior partner to review your past day's work, a weekly one-on-one meeting for goal setting, and seven hours of classroom time once a week for training directly lead by the CEO.

You will also be assigned about two books per month to complete so you build a solid foundation of marketing knowledge. 

You will be paid for all training. Successful trainees will join our team on all-expense-paid trips including flights, hotels, and meals so you too can attend industry events and conferences to meet and network with clients. This is a one-year, very intense, learning-based paid hourly apprenticeship to fast track you as a highly paid internet marketing professional. 

At the completion of your training, you will be able to:

  1. Secure an appointment with any business owner
  2. Research their service so you understand them
  3. Write a sales message for direct response to an offer
  4. Create a landing page to generate a sales lead
  5. Write and send an email to drive people to the page
  6. Run a Facebook ad to drive people to the page
  7. Run a YouTube ad to drive people to the page
  8. Run a Banner ad to drive people to the page
  9. Host and promote a webinar to build awareness
  10. Book your client on industry podcasts for awareness
  11. Run online advertising to a cold audience for awareness

Upon your hire, you will first speak with prospective clients and past clients on the phone for the first six months to build communication skills, then graduate to doing the marketing for eight of our most valuable strategic clients to help them get new customers with Facebook, YouTube, email marketing, landing pages, and more. 

Upon successful completion of your 1 year apprenticeship you'll be offered a $50,000 base plus bonus. Includes health insurance at this point.

You can work anywhere you like. You’ll need a quiet, distraction-free work space with a door you can shut, a desk for a laptop computer we’ll provide (and headset), and your own internet connection. 

You also must be available Monday - Friday from 8am - 9am PST for daily training and every Thursday from 7am - 2pm PST for marketing training with our CEO. This is all done over a Zoom video conference. 

Working where you please is not for everyone, but if you’re self-motivated and disciplined, this position will give you the autonomy and training you need to earn a great living as a marketing professional. 

Upon your hire, you'll come to our office - at our expense - in downtown San Diego to meet our team personally before you start training. 

Responsibilities

  • Speak with prospective and past clients on the phone to listen and explain how we may be able to help them
  • Work with our strategic clients to create messaging and offers their prospective customers want
  • Design landing pages with features, benefits, testimonials, and an offer to make sales or generate leads
  • Drive traffic to the landing page with Facebook, YouTube, and Google Display advertising
  • Write compelling email messages to get people in the client's database to visit the landing page
  • Update the client daily on the status of their marketing with your proactive advice
  • Research and update potential future clients on your work to bring new business to the firm

Requirements

  • Must be a U.S. Citizen
  • Currently, or plan to reside, in a qualified state
  • Available 8am-9am PST M-F for daily one hour training (by video conference)
  • Available 7am-2pm PST Thursdays for classroom time (by video conference)
  • 5 year outlook for the position upon hire
  • Ability to work at least 25 hours a week
  • Quiet, distraction free workplace 
  • Your own high-speed internet connection

Who We are Looking For 

We hire only academic achievers and people passionate about internet marketing, who are also “intrapreneurs”, meaning you ultimately want to build a big career and a big business inside Vyral Marketing. Ideal candidates have a grand vision for their career, high income goals, and know what they want to do professionally. Ideally you see yourself as future business leader and builder, indispensable to growth. Ideal candidates have a proven record of accomplishment and personality that’s results-oriented, decisive, and take-charge. You’re a fit for the job when you have the knowledge, skills, track-record, and personality to get the job done and you’re a cultural fit within our organization. You find solutions, share goals, know what you want (or are actively searching to know what you want), push those around you to do better, are continually raising the bar, demand to be associated with talent, and talk the language of action and results. During your interview, we are probing for patterns in your behavior and thinking, how you act, and how you process ideas and problems. If you are an assertive, people oriented, impatient, flexible, independent, intense, and optimistic person who takes a logical approach to problem solving, can rapidly deal with many problems at once, and can naturally hold, manipulate, and think about three dimensions in your mind (spatial visualization), you will be at home here where you can be yourself every day and thrive. Not to worry, during the interview process we go through all of this so ultimately, we get to know you and hopefully you get to know more about yourself.

[fa icon="plus-square"] Do I need to live in San Diego, CA or Omaha, NE?
No. You must live in one of the qualified states for at least the first six months of your apprenticeship. This is a 100% work at home position. While we are based and have employees in Omaha, NE and San Diego, CA - you'll be an integral part of our team with daily meetings over Skype.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Is this a sales or telemarketing position in disguise?

No. This is not a bait and switch. You will be in a new business role for the first six months talking to prospective and past clients on the phone. This is where you'll learn the needs and goals of our clients. It's also time to develop your communication, influence, listening, and persuasion skills. You’ll also strengthen your ability to handle rejection (clients may reject your ideas!) You must be a proven, strong communicator to work directly with clients. You will be doing "sales" work initially (we don’t call it “sales” since we take a consultative approach and only offer solutions to client problems) before you graduate to doing the actual internet marketing work. "Quality work is not quality service." This is your time to sharpen your communication skill to deliver great service over the phone and by email/video conferencing.

 

[fa icon="plus-square"] How many hours a day?
You must be able to work at least 25 hours a week. Everyone starts part-time. Depending on your performance, we are open to offering you 40 hours a week early in your apprenticeship. You’ll be given a top notch laptop and you can do your work when and where you please. Your goal, after six months of phone training, is to implement our marketing plan for up to 8 clients you’ll be assigned. You won’t take all 8 clients at once, you’ll work your way up to that number during the apprenticeship. You’ll meet with Scott Sillari or Sara Woodrich here for a morning “huddle” daily for about 30 mins, you'll have a weekly one-on-one meeting, and mandatory classroom hours for training for three hours every week. This is all via Skype.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Can I work more than 25 hours a week?
Maybe. You'll start with a strict limit of 25 hours a week. That's plenty of time for your required training and to reach out to prospective clients. If you do a great job, we may expand your total hours to 30-40 hours a week. Assume you'll only work 25 hours a week to start, but based on your performance in the first 4-6 weeks, we are open to expanding the total work hours available to you. You will be working 40 hours a week toward the end of your apprenticeship when you're helping eight clients.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Is the $50,000 guaranteed when I’m done with the apprenticeship?
Yes, if you are successful. This is a paid hourly apprenticeship where you are a full employee of our firm. You are not an independent contractor and this is not a sales position. You will first speak with people on the phone to build communication skills, and then serve 8 current clients to implement their marketing. If they are happy with your services at the end of 6 months, you will receive a job offer. If they are not happy with your work, your apprenticeship will end and you will not receive a job offer.
[fa icon="plus-square"] What is the pay?

You'll be paid an entry-level hourly base to start. For the first six months, you'll speak to 25 new people a week (100 a month) about our service. We expect 2-3 people per 100 to hire us within 90 days of your first conversation. After your first sign up each month, you'll earn a $1,000 bonus for each new client. You can expect to earn $2,000-3,000 a month within the first 90 days. As you transition to a marketing-only role after six months, you'll earn a $50,000 salary with 8 paying, happy clients by the end of the your apprenticeship. We secure the clients for you.

[fa icon="plus-square"] Can you give me an idea on what kind of marketing I'll be doing once I'm hired?
Absolutely – we’ll go over all this during the group meeting. You’ll first learn how to talk to clients and prospective clients on the phone for the first six months.  Then, you'll be given 8 clients to serve directly. You'll interview your clients to learn who they serve and what they sell, and then you’ll set up a landing page to sell their product or generate a sales lead for their service. After that, you’ll run Facebook, YouTube, and banner ads to drive traffic to the landing page, along with running an email campaign to your client’s current customer database. You’ll then coach your clients to create educational videos to market themselves on YouTube, following by planning and promoting Facebook and YouTube live events (i.e. webinars) for your client to market their experience. You’ll also be interviewing your client’s customers to get success stories.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Who are your clients?
You’ll be working with very successful speakers, coaches, authors, and consultants who provide training to the real estate, recruiter, chiropractic, financial advisor, mortgage, personal fitness training industries. You can visit the “Partners” page on our website to learn more about who we currently work with on our partner program. You’ll be working on the “partner” side of our firm providing implementation for a specialized marketing plan just for our strategic partners under the direct guidance of our CEO.
