What is a Creative Director?
Within a company, a creative director is someone on the team who makes important decisions about advertising, posting, and other marketing tasks to ensure that the creativity of the business’s messaging is solid.
These individuals focus on the ideas that matter, looking toward the future of their marketing campaigns and working to strengthen them.
These employees are also writing content and ensuring that interest is captured from leads on various social media platforms.
Let’s outline how you can find these people within your industry.
How to Search For Job Title
You can search by job title through manual search or by using automation tools.
Most people use manual searching techniques, but this tactic is slow and often redundant.
The usage of automation for searching helps you save time, energy, and money through automatic search results and prospecting.
You create a template, and plug it into your automation.
Your tool then finds all of the profiles that match your keywords, and you can begin your outreach.
Best Practices for Communicating with Creative Talent
When you connect with anyone on LinkedIn, there are several items you should keep in mind for your messaging and outreach.
The first, and most important, is the fact that you must remain personal and authentic in your messaging.
Each person you talk to has ideas and thoughts that you can learn from, but you also want to build a relationship with this person.
With that in mind, be intentional and thoughtful in your messaging.
You should also consider how your brand and company appears to them before you reach out.
As creatives, these individuals will be looking at your profile and brand before they respond to your message.
Your profile will serve as a resume of sorts, so be sure that your profile portrays your brand persona and company well.
How to Message an Art Director
Before you message an art director or anyone business professional on the LinkedIn platform, consider where you want the future of the conversation to go.
You don’t want to waste their time or yours, so go into the conversation with a purpose.
Open with a compliment to their style or company, and state your intentions for the connection in a friendly and authentic way.
Be direct, but also be open to building a relationship with this individual outside of what they can provide for you.
When you approach your connections in this manner, you’ll be better prepared to forge relationships and learn from those you have connected with.
