Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

Want to know how I built this life with no formal education?

What does a promotions manager do?

Promotions managers organize and manage promotions programs that combine incentives and advertising to increase the sales of their company. They manage promotions activities and staff. They ensure that promotion programs utilize all outlets of standard advertising such as direct mail, print media, radio or television broadcast advertising, newspaper inserts, exhibits, Internet advertising, on-site displays, product endorsements, and telemarketing. They also use a variety of incentives such as samples, coupons, rebates, contests, sweepstakes, and free gifts. Promotions managers are often involved in supporting new products and services. They establish direct contact with distributors, merchants, and clients through their advertising techniques. Promotions managers often coordinate special events that are on-site or take place in other live venues. They often work with other professionals such as sales managers and advertising managers to create effective promotion programs.

What kind of training does a promotions manager need?

Promotions managers typically need at least a bachelor degree in marketing, business administration, or related field. Some employers prefer applicants with a master degree. Many promotions managers begin their career in entry-level positions and advance to management positions after acquiring the essential skills and experience. Prospective promotions managers typically complete courses in accounting, business, marketing, statistics, economics, and management. Many aspiring promotions managers complete internships to gain practical experience in the field. Promotions managers must stay up to date on the current advancements in the field and often complete continuing education courses and additional training throughout their careers.

What are the prospects for a career as a promotions manager?

Employment of promotions managers is expected to grow more slowly than average for all professions, increasing 6% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The growing economy and increased need in product and service promotions will drive job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be good with strong competition. Promotions managers with advanced education and extensive experience will have the best job opportunities. Some job openings will stem from the need to replace promotions managers that retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

As of December 2009, the middle 50% of promotions managers earn annual salaries between $72,392 and $99,729. The top 10% earn annual salaries of more than $112,646 (2).

A career as a promotions manager is a great choice for people with a strong interest in advertising and promotions programs.

High motivation, good leadership, critical thinking, and excellent problem solving skills are essential.
