How do you structure a digital team?
This all depends on whether you are building a team from scratch within an existing business that falls within digital transformation or whether you have some existing staff in an existing digital environment. In our experience you should ensure that you have a senior staff member installed as part of that team who will help with the process of recruiting the team. Some business can make the mistake of hiring junior staff members first, in order to get digital activity underway, only to recruit a senior hire who wants to build their own team and create their structure.
There are many different facets to building a team, from brand to direct response, from creative to technical or analytics to PR. In the first instance its essential to ensure the digital assets you create are fit for purpose, then they can be marketed effectively to deliver the service you intend. Having an all-rounder to build smaller teams might be better than hiring specialists who have been siloed into one role. As organisations grow, they can then hire specialists that focus on particular areas and help scale the organisation. The key is to plan it effectively and consider a consultant to help get the plan right from the offset.
