Set a Plan: Determine the Type of Person You Need to Hire

1. Strategizer or Executor?

Do you need someone to help create strategy for your brand, or someone to help execute the tactics? It’s also possible you’ll need both to achieve your marketing goals.

2. Self-starter of Closely Managed Individual?
