END OF JOB DESCRIPTION
When Interviewing for a Roofing Marketing Manager – look for these traits:
You want your Roofing marketing manager to be great to work with, kind, and of course really driven to get more leads, and increase your companies brand awareness, and feel motivated to accomplish your companies mission of helping more people in your community get quality roofs over their head.
Here is a list of traits that may help you think about who you’re looking for:
- Hungry – you want someone who actually needs this income, and is excited to make more money – IF they drive significant business in your company. (It may seem tempting to be fine with someone who’s not very money motivated, but that might be a mistake, because then it’s harder to give them incentives to dominate.)
- Humble – You don’t want someone who can’t admit when they make mistakes. Marketing is a game of mistakes. Try 5 things, 2 work – admit it, move on, and take those learnings. The only way you lose, is if you pretend everything was a win.
- Smart – You shouldn’t have to constantly be telling this person what to do. Self-motivated, intuitive people – define their own tasks based on a really clear outcome you’ve defined, and goal-setting with the quarter and high-value lead-generating habits within each week.
Right seat – Right Company – Right Skills
You need somebody who:
A) Wants to do THIS JOB.
B) Wants to do it at THIS COMPANY.
C) You want someone who is actually CAPABLE.
Get someone who is self-motivated
You do not want someone who has to come to you every 3 days and get a whole new list of to-do’s. If nothing else, set up a weekly rhythm of tasks that are high-value with them, and re-assess that weekly rhythm on a quarterly basis based on what you see is working.
But – ideally a Roofing Marketing Manager is regularly coming up with new ideas, that you wouldn’t have thought of yourself.
Don’t make the mistake of hiring a smart person, and then micro-managing them to the point they don’t get excited to come to work every day. A great roofing marketing manager, will be creative and a little less rigid than some of your other employees.
That’s marketing. Marketers run a little bit different, so allow them the creative freedom to take on fun new initiatives, and just remind them of the north star – new business, and increased brand awareness. Within that, they should be allowed to diverge from your normal methods sometimes.
