Marketing is like show business: you’re putting your brand on display, so it better look good. And you’d hope for some applause at the end, too. But what meets the eye on stage is only half of what gets put in when it comes to making your show successful: there’s so much going on behind the curtains. That’s why, when you’re looking for help with your marketing, it’s so crucial to look for not only a creative marketeer, but also an analytical one: you’ll be needing them both if you want to fuel your company growth properly.
Plus, the collaboration is immaculate. You have two unique tools, tuned to their own strengths, working together to build one amazing thing: your company’s branding. For example, consider the following every time a visual goes out on your social media channel(s): that visual needs to look great and convey a strong message-- the creative side-- but it also needs to be tested and measured to see if it’s performing well-- the analytical side. One without the other wouldn’t make sense, like a headless chicken helplessly running around not knowing which direction to head. Still, the collaboration should remain between two separate organs entirely.
Your creative marketeer is the High-Flyer holding the paintbrush, putting a vision to action. They make your business come alive with intriguing content and give your brand a soul.
Two of any individual’s most important means of expression. But the head and the heart are entirely different mechanisms, and if you tried to make them into one thing, it wouldn’t end so great. We’d like to make the same point with the mistake many businesses make, in hiring a creative and analytical marketeer all in one person: these make up two entirely different personalities, and to seek them out in a single individual is often to overwhelm your High-Flyer and therefore reduce the efficiency and help you were expecting from them.
When, however, you separate the two because they are, in essence, separate tasks, you’ll cultivate a better focus for your company, allowing individual concentration on either the creative or analytical and collective collaboration when necessary. Sometimes, the head will help the heart, and sometimes, the heart will help the head, but when it comes down to it, creative and analytical marketing should belong to one High-Flyer each.
