If you have just started your own digital marketing company, you are probably ready to go out there and begin selling your products to the world. However, before you start, form a perfect team as it is difficult to thrive alone.
Running your company is not a simple process but having a perfect team behind you will make it a whole lot simpler. Before putting together your team, though, you need to make sure your company is officially registered. It is a very simple process which you can complete online. You can register as a limited company yourself or with the help of an accountant. There’s a small price to pay for it, but it is worth it and officiates your new startup.
Assembling Your Team
Running a business in the 21st century and operating on the internet is a whole lot different than it was a couple of decades ago. Today, you need a group of people filling different roles to make your marketing agency a success.
In your digital marketing team, you should have people who cover all the following roles.
Search Engine Optimization
An SEO specialist is one of the most important members of a digital marketing agency. This individual should be highly knowledgeable and specialized in SEO content production. This will ensure that your website and other parts of your online marketing perform optimally, enabling potential clients to find you with ease. Although SEO is something you could learn, it pays to have a specialist on board who knows the ins and outs of it.
Social Media Management
Social media is a super useful—and perhaps necessary—tool for modern businesses. It is inherently linked to digital marketing and, because of this, it is wise to put somebody in charge. This person should update your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages with latest news related to your company. The job is to regularly post engaging content online for your target audience.
Social media management is such an important role that it warrants having one, two, or even a whole team of people behind it. It can make or break a startup.
Programming and Design
While it is easy to build a website on WordPress, you need a dedicated programmer and designer to optimize your website and establish some brand identity. It should not look like another run-of-the-mill WordPress job thrown together in five minutes using free themes and stock images. Your website needs to be intuitive, functional, and aesthetically appealing. A good programmer will be able to do this and more.
You need somebody on your team whose primary role is to produce regular content. We are not just talking about website content, but blog posts and email newsletters which engage with your followers and bring in new clients. This individual should be a creative thinker, an excellent writer, and be able to proactively and consistently produce new and engaging content for your website and blog. This will entice your readers to find out more about your services or return in the future to catch up on new updates.
Starting out in the digital marketing world is not easy, but with the right mix of skills in the team, you can spend more time focusing on running your company as opposed to producing a mediocre performance of all the jobs mentioned above.
