New year, new talent? If you’re looking to boost your company’s creative and digital services, it pays to invest in the right employees. Taking a look at the company’s initiatives for the new year, what creative and digital talent are you hiring in 2018?
1. UI and UX Designers
These two types of designers are essential for making websites, apps and other digital platforms as user-friendly as possible. UI / UX designers work hand in hand: User interface designers control the look and feel of the imagery, icons, typography and other graphic elements, while user experience designers make sure all of those pieces function effectively. Both keep usability and gratification in mind when designing new products, which improves customer interaction and loyalty. They’ll also help enhance existing products to improve customer experience, thus driving in more positive results for the company.
2. Digital Copywriters
Similar to a traditional writer, a digital copywriter has the strong written communication skills to deliver fresh, witty and engaging content that accompanies the visual elements of advertising and marketing efforts. More importantly, digital copywriters have a sharp focus on creating content for online channels, such as websites, UX interactions and social media. The right digital copywriter can elevate the copy your company delivers on its own platforms as well as for other clients. Keep in mind that these writers may also label their skills as content writing, content creation or digital copy editing.
3. Graphic Designers
With increasingly short attention spans, we often depend on visual content for quick communication. These design experts are the key to producing effective and aesthetically pleasing visual content in a timely manner. It’s always helpful to hire a graphic designer with the specific skills that cater to your company’s current needs, such as a knack for web production, illustration, infographics, logos, videos or multimedia.
4. Digital Project Managers
In a digitally driven world, it’s important to have a streamlined process to manage all projects, budgeting, goals, and results. That’s where the digital project manager comes in. They’re the tech-savvy leader who will schedule project meetings, delegate tasks, manage scope, build reports and evaluate project success. Their job is to keep in-house processes organized and timely while maintaining client satisfaction with the experience and deliverables.
5. Digital Marketing Specialists
It’s important to have employees with the right expertise to create and manage effective marketing campaigns for digital platforms. Think branded social media pages, email campaigns, search engine optimization, paid search and campaign measurement. The digital marketing specialist is the point person for all marketing and content strategy. They offer solutions to implement new trends and insights into ongoing and new campaigns. If you’re heavily focused on measuring results, consider hiring a digital analytics manager to support the digital marketing specialist efforts in collecting and analyzing data.
