There are two link building team models:

► A team of all-in-one marketers who handle every stage of the link building process.
► A team where each member is responsible for just one part of the link building process.

The first team model doesn’t seem efficient because no one is a master of all the stages in the link building process. This often leads to sloppiness and mistakes in areas where these marketers are weaker.

The second model is more efficient because each team member handles one part of the link building process. Thus, they build mastery in their areas of responsibility and learn to work as one team over time.

Here are three different roles you may want to hire people for your link building team:

► link prospector
► link vetter
► outreach manager

Watch the video to learn more about what skills, traits, and qualifications you should look for when hiring link builders as well as an overview of their roles and responsibilities.

Work Teams

The traditional approach to job design has been to focus on individual jobs, but today, work teams are the rage—or, to be more accurate, teams are redesigning members’ jobs. The purpose of team-based job design is to give the team an entire piece of work.

When we provide the team with an entire piece of work, it is a form of job enrichment; and as a result, autonomy, task identity, and task significance go up at a substantial rate. Teams develop innovative routines that get passed on to other teams. Two common types of work teams are integrated teams and self-managed teams.

Integrated work teams are assigned a number of tasks by a manager, and the team in turn gives specific assignments to members and is responsible for rotating jobs. Self-managed work teams are assigned a goal; and the team plans, organizes, leads, and controls to achieve the goal.

Teams commonly elect their own members and evaluate each other’s performance.
