Choose Your Leader
Choose your leader wisely. Find someone with experience in various settings who can spearhead any project and lead a team. This person will be the one to take the blame for marketing strategies that don't quite go viral, so make sure they can handle the pressure.
Find yourself a wordsmith - someone who can write a blog in their sleep and write content for and eBook like it's nothing. This person can write in any style that you ask for or that your clients request. They are like a chameleon with words, transforming to any style.
