Starting your own business is a daunting venture, but it’s so rewarding. No matter how stressed out you are one year in, take a moment to appreciate how far you’ve come in a relatively short span. But you also need to look ahead to your company’s future, and who you’re going to need beside you to make it a success. To take your business to the next level and establish a sustainable organization, you need to have the right team to help you.

Even if you think you’ve done fine on your own up until now, having a team of intelligent, passionate people behind you can give your a fresh perspective, new strengths to drive the business forward, and capable hands to take the reigns if you need some time off. Of course, this will only be possible if you hire the right people; getting the wrong people on your team can hinder your business at best, or bring it crumbling down at worst.

A strong team of professionals will be able to confidently take over some aspects of your company, leaving you more time to focus on the part of the business that matters most to you. Make sure to get a punch clock software to record the timings of all your employees as this is one of the ways by which you can make your office more efficient. 

Payroll Administrator

If you’re going to expand your company to include a lot of employees, you should know that they will all expect to get paid. You may have the best intentions, but when you’re overseeing a growing business you won’t have time to calculate monthly pay for each working, even if you don’t factor in overtime.

The best option is to contact Payroll recruitment agencies to get a payroll administrator assigned to your company. Administrators will be confident with numbers, will have their own organisational and time management skills, and will pay close attention to details to make sure everyone is paid what they are owed. Once you have a payroll administrator in place, you can start hiring people with the assurance that they will be paid soon after joining your team.

Project manager

As a business owner, your focus needs to be on the bigger picture. It’s virtually impossible to keep an eye on the smaller issues such as schedules and deadlines at the same time, no matter how organised you are. A project manager can help you oversee the day to day operations, make sure employees are meeting their deadlines, and generally ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

Your project manager must be an excellent leader, in the sense that people will look up to them and be willing to follow their direction. They need to make confident decisions in your absence, solve dilemmas, and take charge during meetings. They must also be a good communicator, so that there is no confusion about the company’s goals and expectations.

To do their job effectively, your project manager must also be a good listener. It’s not only important that they understand and can effectively communicate your business aims, they must also listen to concerns and issues that other employees are facing within their jobs.

Finally, a good project manager does not micro-manage every employee. They should trust that each employee can do their own job effectively, so they only step in when there is something that needs their attention.

Campaign Strategist

You have probably done a good job of strategizing your own campaign up to this point, but a professional strategist will have fresh ideas, experience, and the knowledge necessary to take your business to the next level. Since growing your company quickly will involve increasing your marketing presence significantly, you need a campaign strategist who will tell you where to invest. This person must be able to balance competing priorities and should be given the authority to say “no” for the greater good of the company.

Ideally, your campaign strategist will have many years of marketing experience, and an in-depth understanding of the industry you’re trying to break into. Even if you’re working on an idea that’s completely new, they will be invaluable in helping you come up with a strategy that will resonate with your target audience.

Website Designer

These days, one of the easiest ways to introduce your business to the world is by having a well-designed website. A website designer is the expert you need to make a professional site that accurately represents your business and promotes your services. Ideally, they will have some coding knowledge, but they will be in charge of keeping your website up to date, and work with your campaign strategist landing pages and email marketing. This ongoing customization will help your company stand out and give your prospects a reason to take notice of your marketing, driving further growth.

Content Writer

It may seem redundant to hire a content writer when you already have a website designer and campaign strategist, but only a true wordsmith is capable of organizing thoughts into word form and capturing your intended audience. Wordsmiths include authors, bloggers, public speakers, and communicators of all types, so don’t judge if the applicants don’t necessarily have experience as a content writer.

Social Media Manager

Don’t be fooled into thinking that keeping your company’s social media platforms up to date is easy or not as important as all the other aspects. Social media is one of the easiest ways for the public to keep updated to your business developments, so it should not be left in the care of just anyone. Your social media manager an important part of monitoring and controlling the online conversation surrounding your brand, so they should be responsible, levelheaded and able to think outside the box when it comes to social media promotions.


While not a specific job title, you need to surround yourself with eternal optimists if you want to keep yourself motivated. Optimists can stay calm under pressure and see the brighter side of things even in the darkest of moments. They have belief and conviction in the abilities of your team and know that every obstacle is only a stepping stone for greater success.
