OUR TEAM STRUCTURE

5 SPECIALISTS EVERY DIGITAL TEAM NEEDS

1. Content creator High-quality content is at the heart of your business. It’s likely that this is what you love working on yourself, but don’t be afraid to get support through other content creators when the situation calls for it (e.g. a photographer).

2. Sales person or accountant Your community won’t be a business without money - bring someone on board who is good with it.

3. Lawyer or paralegal The more paid projects you work on, the more contracts you’ll have to sign. Get help from a professional to keep everything under control.

4. Graphic designer The perfect team member to make sure your brand look is consistent across all platforms.

5. Copywriter or editor Great writing can make the difference between proposals that are rejected and proposals that are accepted.

Trade services with other creatives.

Buy presets of the instagram photographer you’d love to work with.

Don’t worry if you don’t have the money for all those people. Do what you can with what you have! For example:
