I am Hiro Suganuma, a Japanese student from Yokohama on the Associate Degree Program at the Hubbard College of Administration (HCA), Los Angeles, CA. I did my Marketing Apprenticeship at Fresh Aire Duct Cleaning. This was a fun apprenticeship that I enjoyed so much. I learned a lot about the subject of marketing. Now, I can promote and sell anything to the WORLD!! First, I needed to know about the product very well in order to sell it or promote it. If I didnít know the product very well I couldn’t make any promo piece for it. I couldn’t let other people know about it, I couldn’t sell it and before I started this apprenticeship, I wasn’t aware of the air duct cleaning industry at all. I needed to learn about it from the beginning, and it was very interesting. I went to an actual job site and observed the air duct cleaning service. I even went up to the attic with one of the employees and took some pictures of the employee cleaning the main air duct system using his tools. Now I know the air duct cleaning procedure very well. Marketing wise, it was such a valuable experience for me. Through this apprenticeship, I realized something very useful. With the Administrative Technology I learned in the Marketing Course, I can promote anything and everything I want! I can get the result very easily without having any problems. I can create want for any kind of product from any public! The Administrative Technology is very simple and amazing. I did a survey of the company’s public to determine the basis of my marketing efforts. I designed a promo piece based on the survey result. The owner of the company liked it very much. She printed 10,000 copies of it for the company promo campaign. One of the sales ladies started using my survey result as part of her sales presentation over the phone. After a week, she had achieved the highest ever statistics for weekly sales! I really enjoyed this apprenticeship. Although I was an apprentice, it was very heartening to see the humongous effect I created in the business, using my newly attained marketing abilities. This experience increased my confidence concerning my knowledge. If one looks at the world, one sees a lot of misunderstood technology (for example, inept promo pieces and PR campaigns). Iím sure that my products are more effective than some marketing companies. I will continue to improve my skills in the years to come!
