I was hired by a company to build up its brand online. I looked at what they already had done, and I noticed that the client’s daughter was in charge previously. Sales had been very, very low.
As a digital marketer, I had about 10 years of experience. I proceeded to double the sales of the business over the next few months. During this time, I was bullied by the business owner’s family members, who didn’t understand how digital marketing works.
Client: We have hired someone new who will be coming in soon to work on marketing with you.
Me: Ok, thanks for letting me know.
The next week, I get an e-mail from the client’s daughter (only a couple of years out of college, the one who had previously almost sunk the brand), stating she will be my new Director.
I quit that day.
