Describe your current role.
As the Product Content Marketing Specialist for Legrand | AV – Luxul, I am responsible for preparing and creating marketing content for both product and brand awareness. I also oversee all Luxul brand marketing email communications, from creation to delivery, Luxul’s presence on the Legrandav.com website, and Luxul’s social media presence. As such I am deeply involved with dealers in helping them master their networking skills and providing them with everything they need to successfully sell Luxul solutions.
What do you like best about your job?
I love being able to work with products and solutions that affect and can help make everyday life easier. The network is the foundation to every connected home, and I enjoy being able to help market and build assets that help tell the story of those products, while also deepening my understanding and confidence of networking and the technology behind the solutions.
What technology are you most excited about at the moment?
Since it hits close to home, I’m most excited to see what happens with WiFi 6. More and more homes are gaining more and more connected devices, which can cause a lot of congestion on the home network. The technology behind WiFi 6 should help alleviate those issues and provide a better experience for larger networks
What career advice would you give to people just getting started in the CE or technology industry?
My advice to anyone just being introduced or getting started within the industry is learn. Learn about the different types of technology and products within the space, and the problems that they solve. By understanding the problems products in the CE industry solve, you will be better prepared to sell, market, and develop new products and solutions. Also, learn how and what it takes to install those products — take a walk in the integrator’s shoes — so you can have an appreciation and understand the products from shelf to delivery.
What, in your opinion, is necessary for the CE/technology industry to thrive in the next five years?
I think for the industry to thrive, we need to continually look at how we can make the technology and products easier to use. While that may not be ideal for all solutions, I think there are ways to simplify products and solutions in the industry — both for the dealers and the end-user.
