Data is the key to unlocking your marketing mysteries. Making data-driven decisions is such a useful skill because of what the data can unlock for your company. Data tells you what works and, more importantly, what doesn’t work. Finding team members that enjoy sifting through the data is a considerable hiring win because they can prove the success of your marketing efforts with the information they collect. The Researcher is a vital part of any organization, as they are the unseen heroes that spend their time digging into our processes. If there is something that doesn’t work in your company, The Researcher will reveal it.
The Mad Scientist
You need people who are willing and ready to change the rules of your marketing game. The Mad Scientist will take the results of the data provided by The Researcher and concoct new experiments for your marketing campaigns. You want people who aren’t afraid to take risks and try a couple of different approaches that separate them from the norm. It may take some time before they figure out a method that is successful but finding the successful path will be worth the wait. Someone who can continually change the formula of their approach is an incredibly valuable skill that can be hard to come by.
