Microsoft is advertising for Retail Marketing Managers in European countries like UK, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland,Norway, Spain,Italy,and the Netherlands with the aim of boosting Windows phone 7 sales there.
The managers would be tasked with â€œcommunicat(ing) the value of a Windows Phone through RSP advocacy, in store merchandising and online experience.â€.
The news comes on the back of Achim Berg, corporate vice president of Windows Phone Marketing saying the company was training â€œhundredsâ€ of salesmen worldwide to demonstrate the OS.
Retail is felt to be one of the weakest areas for Windows Phone 7, with sales staff turning away even customers who already express a preference for Windows Phone.
