As agencies, brands, tech and eCommerce companies work to achieve measurable results on digital campaigns, the competition for exceptional talent has become fierce. Companies looking to attract top digital marketers need a strategy for identifying, attracting and securing the best.

Based on our extensive work on these searches, here are 6 measures that have proven to deliver results:

  2. Lay out a clear path for growthClearly articulate the expectations of the role within the first 6 month, year and 3 years. Define the criteria for success and promotion.
  3. Demonstrate that you take digital seriously – Describe the role that digital plays in your organization. Articulate what digital initiatives are operational, in the works and planned for the future.
  4. Strengthen your candidate pipeline – Digital candidates are picky and hard to find. Companies should use every resource available to have a strong selection of qualified candidates from which you can choose.
  5. Prepare to move quicklySet aside blocks of time for decision makers to interview and lay out a clear decision making process. You don’t want to lose candidates due to slow process.
  6. Offer performance-based compensation – Digital marketing results are often highly measurable and directly attributed to revenue. Compensation should be structured to allow candidates to participate in the success of their efforts.
