Operations manager are a must in any Web / IT company for successful execution of projects. They take care of all the core operations in a company. We at Clicks Bazaar were looking for some good people for the same. We interviewed many Experienced candidates for the same. People with years of experience came but we didn’t get the desired candidate.
So finally we decided to interview some bloggers. Personally Bloggers were my choice as before starting Clicks Bazaar I have been a blogger as well.
The role of Operations manager is to Interact with the clients, get the clients requirements, get the wireframes ready, bridge the communication gap between the Designing , Development and the Marketing teams. So we required one person who has a good knowledge of all the 3 domains so that he can bring all the departments well connected and speed up the execution of work. We were able to find people who were proficient in a domain or two but no one who was proficient in all 3 and understood the work well.
Then we moved to shortlisting some part time / full time bloggers for the same and our search came to an end.
Here are a few reasons why bloggers quality the best for the same:
a) Knowledge of all the 3 domains
Bloggers excel in / have good understanding of all the 3 domains – Designing, Development, Marketing.
Bloggers always strive to make their blogs beautiful and most bloggers I know always try to learn it themselves. It no only helps to save them money but also get an insight of the designing domain well. They work with all the tools and languages like CSS 2, CSS 3, HTML 5, Photoshop and many more. So they do fulfil the designing requirements of the organisation. They might not excel in it but its not even required as well. The idea is to have a great understanding of the domain so that they can get it executed from the team and support them where ever their input is required.
Then comes the marketing domain. Almost all serious bloggers want to promote their blog and get the maximum out o it. For this they are always learning new marketing strategies and tactics to promote their blog. They have knowledge about SEO, if they are promoting any service then they also get into PPC (not in depth but a fair knowledge is enough).
Then comes the development domain. Bloggers might not be as good developers because most of them use WordPress platform and it more or less solves all their needs. But during their learning process their overall thought process is developed and they know what is required and how to get the requirements from the client. And that’s what is required. For the development developers are there.
So Bloggers are good enough to bridge the gap between all the three domains and get the operations of the Web company run smoothly.
b) Self Learners
Another good aspect about the bloggers is their self learning approach. They start at an early age and learn as much as they can. They develop the habit of self learning and it is a must for any organisation. If the person is a self learner, he can anytime evolve as a better manager and improve the operations in the ten as well.
c) Thought Process
The Bloggers have a mindset of Entrepreneurs and they take ownership in any work they do. They are highly motivated people and if given the right direction they can keep the team highly motivated and improve the efficiency of the team. Even if they lack some knowledge, we can always train them to become the better operations manager.
There is much more to add to this but these three core points are enough to explain why Bloggers are the best Operations manager in a Web Company.
