How do you find the right creative team for you?

Expert, Specialist, Consultant, Freelancer, Guru or Agency – How do you know where to start?

Buying creative and marketing services can be daunting and seem to be a complicated process but it doesn’t have to be.

Whether you are working with an individual or an agency, your project needs to be a success and align with your business plan.

7 pointers to consider before you start your search and help you get started on your road to finding the right creative team to deliver your project:

1. Work out your goals and what out comes your want from your project.

2. Consider your timeline / project plan - your milestones and deadlines. You don’t need a comprehensive plan - good creative teams will help you create a detailed plan.

3. Define your budget - the creative team will ensure you get value for money.

4. Scope of the project – agree what deliverables should be included.

5. Define roles and responsibilities – who will manage your project and be the point of contact for the creative team.

7. Introduction meeting, before you send your brief, set-up a meeting - it’s an opportunity for you meet the people who will be working with you, discuss your goals and answer any questions they might have. You will know after a face to face meeting whether you want to progress to the next stage and discuss the brief.
