How to ask your employer to fund your membership

The best businesses and managers see professional training as an investment rather than a cost. By investing time and money into their teams development, businesses can increase employee capability, satisfaction and productivity.

However, although many marketers understand the benefits that professional development can have for their employers, it can sometimes be difficult to ask them to fund the training that you want to undertake.

Asking for employer funding can feel like a daunting task with the risk of them saying no being a common deterrent for many employees.

When approaching your employer about professional development funding, focus on the benefits that the training will bring to both you and your company.

If possible, identify how your training will directly and positively impact the company’s marketing goals.

You should also try to anticipate any questions that your manager may have and prepare answers in advance so that you can progress the conversation in a positive way.

Investing in employee development shows a positive company culture so be sure to let your employer know that you would appreciate their support in helping you develop both personally and professionally.

Understanding how to demonstrate the benefits of professional marketing training is key to helping your employer understand exactly why they should invest in your development.
