A former client, Cassidy Shield, who currently runs marketing at Narrative Science, recently wrote about his company’s effort to define Good vs. Bad Marketing and the twelve traits that distinguish good and bad marketers. This a thought-provoking list that is a stark reminder of what marketers need to do to drive growth. His post inspired us to identify those traits that would be most beneficial for our organization.
Our agency runs on the mantra of the Exceptional Marketing Mindset.
As marketing leaders, we need to be clear on not just the skills and experience we are looking for when recruiting and developing our teams – but also how they think, their mindset if you will. Skills are obviously essential, but marketing changes so quickly that skills can quickly become obsolete. Having the right mindset allows us as marketers to adapt, grow and evolve. As an agency, it is critical that our team finds marketers with traits so that we can deliver outstanding work for our clients.
