Marketing is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace. If you’re not staying on top of the latest technology, strategies and media channels then you’re at immediate risk of falling behind the competition. Hiring the right marketers is essential to keeping up with this rapidly changing industry.
In such a volatile field, you need the best available marketing talent at the helm when it comes to making decisions and working on high-priority projects. A marketing staffing firm can provide you with those rare individuals when you need it most.
Average marketers are actually fairly easy to come by if you have a competent HR/hiring department that knows where to look. But if you want to secure a persistent edge over your competition and ensure you’re not falling behind without even noticing, you need great marketers: not good or average ones.
What’s the difference? It can be difficult to tell, at least at first glance. Often what distinguishes an exceptional marketer from an average one is an accumulation of small but significant traits that allows them to consistently outperform their counterparts.
For instance, two designers might have comparably excellent graphic design skills—but one of them meticulously creates art with a tested and proven methodology, operates under the latest industry best practices, and nimbly interacts with her colleagues to maximize the effectiveness and integration of her own efforts into the work of others. One is obviously better than the other, but discerning the difference just by comparing their pretty pictures will get you nowhere.
The other challenge of hiring great marketers is that most of them are already employed, and those that aren’t are usually snapped up quickly. In order to get them you must be able to act fast when the opportunity arises and know how to lure them away from current jobs to your company.
The best way to find and entice top marketing talent is to have someone on your side who understands marketing and recruiting with great and equal capability. People like this are hard to come by—few HR professionals or hiring managers have the thorough marketing experience necessary to really understand marketing. Fewer still are able to keep up with its changes or communicate with marketers on a level they understand.

And we ensure that only the top level of qualified candidates reach your desk, so you don’t have to waste time considering marketers that aren’t a good fit for you.
