Determining Whether a Digital Recruiter Is Right for Your Growth Marketing Company
September 22, 2022
It can be really difficult to find good help these days. If your company is considering working with a digital recruiter to help find highly qualified members of your team, that’s just one more challenge that needs to be met before you can grow and meet your goals.
But how do you know if a digital recruiter is a good fit for your growth marketing company?
Here are a few things to consider when contemplating working with a digital recruiter:
- They have a deep understanding of growth marketing. Marketing is one thing; growth marketing takes it to the next level. A good digital recruiter will understand the need to be nimble and creative; they’ll embrace all the possible tools at their disposal to help you find new clients, new campaigns and new ideas. They’ll understand the importance of A/B testing, targeted advertising and traceable links, value-added blogs and sponsorship opportunities or boosted posts on social media. Growth is not just reaching more people or companies but creating and fostering new relationships.
- They understand the nuances of digital marketing. It’s so much more than banner ads and pay-per-click advertising. What’s your social media strategy and how do they think you can improve it? Do they eat, sleep and breathe SEO strategy and keywords? Can they identify people with those skills, who use them correctly and effectively? And are they ready to roll with the changes that happen on a regular basis?
- They ask the right questions. A good digital recruiter will focus, first and foremost, on their relationship with you. They’ll want to know where you’re coming from and where you want to go, not just this month, but in six months, a year, five years. They have ideas on how to get you there but they want to know how you feel about things. They ask about your comfort levels trying new things but also want to know what’s been done previously. They’ll want to know about your team, what skills are present and who’s thriving.
- They’re excited to work with you. When you meet with a possible digital recruiter, it shouldn’t feel like a chore. It shouldn’t feel like an obligation, one of countless meetings they have in a day or week. They should come to you with energy and enthusiasm, eager to learn. They should also have some concepts and ideas in hand, ready to customize to meet your needs in your specific industry. Maybe they even have some concepts drafted up, because they’ve done their homework and a working understanding of your current standing in your field and what your competitors are doing. They’re eager to prove themselves by helping you succeed.
A digital recruiter who can meet all these challenges and is committed, from the start, to helping your company grow and build new relationships through good storytelling, the ability and willingness to adapt a campaign midstream in order to try something new, while also nurturing your existing relationships — that’s someone you want to partner with. That’s a relationship you want to build.
