If there is one thing that is significant to the success of your business it’s your marketing team. Whether you have one in-house or you outsource it is completely up to you, but your marketing team is tasked with absolutely everything from awareness of your brand, to promoting your service. They also work on engaging people in what your business does on public forums such as social media.
When you build your team, you have to consider every corner of marketing so that you know that you are covered. For example, if you want somebody on board who’s going to optimise your content you would have an SEO agency to hand. If you want somebody to be able to build brand awareness, you might have an ambassador of your brand who works solely as your voice on social media. Either way, you need to keep up with the evolution of modern marketing and that means you need to have the right talent on your team. Some of the most important positions that you need on your marketing team are listed for you below.
