But you can’t hire just anyone. If they’re not true A-players, difference-makers, go-getters… they’ll bring more problems than solutions.
You can’t afford to hire even average people. You need the best. But can you attract them?
Nowhere is “garbage in, garbage out” more true than in recrutment. You simply can’t get top-notch hires without quality candidates.
You may be running job ads, leveraging your network, or even reaching out to promising candidated cold…
But you can’t attract the truly good ones with any consistency.
Because they don’t have prior digital marketing experience, a typical recruiter will need at least 3 months to fill a role.
That’s assuming they’re willing and able to learn the position inside out through trial and error.
Most recruiters aren’t as dedicated and instead keep draining your time with subpar options.
On average, only 70% of hires make it past 12 months. Is there another area of your business where you’d accept a 30% failure rate?
Mis-hires are very costly (estimated at 3.5x their yearly salary) and sap your and your team’s energy.
There’s no silver bullet to finding the best people. It’s about putting in disciplined, focused work backed by years of experience.
Digital marketing as an industry is still brand new. 15-20 years is nothing compared to traditional advertising (as old as time), publishing (a few centuries), or even software development (50+ years).
Dedicated recruiters for digital marketing are something even newer. We’re in a category of one. And we get results.
Our founder’s, Ugis’, previous business was built on FB ads, SEO, and email marketing. It now does 8 figures thanks to a team of A-players.
That team took 5 years to build. Since 2020, Ugis has been obsessed with bringing the best recruitment practices to the digital marketing community.
“Recruiter Mill went the extra mile and found some really talented people for us.”
"We were never able to find great project managers. So the fact that Ugis found so many was incredible."
“Before working with Recruited Mill, we couldn't even imagine how large of a talent pool we'll get access to.”
If you reach out to the wrong people, nothing else will work.
We use LinkedIn Recruiter – by far the superior sourcing tool – to reach out to 40 candidates a week, 120-200 candidates in total.
We get a 52% response rate to our outreach. The industry average is 30-35%.
How? We target well and give the candidates all the information they need to decide if they’re interested. And they love us for it.
When hiring, we know what to look at to make a sure-shot decision. We ensure we don’t miss anything.
This includes a 20-30 min screening interview (conducted by us), a test assignment, and an interview with the hiring manager. We do more if it’s needed.
There's nobody that offers better results and value than we do for digital marketing recruitment
90% retention rate may sound great but what if you’re among the unlucky 10%?
All of our hires come with a 12-month guarantee. If they’re not on your team in a year’s time, we repeat the search.
Alternatively, you can credit half of the total fee paid towards a new search with us.
This is not for every business but you can get even more value by hiring from outside of the US and Western Europe.
For senior and leadership positions, typical savings are 30%-50%.
The candidates have comparable skills to US talent, great English, and they’ll be a perfect fit with your company culture.
If you’re interested in hiring from Eastern Europe, Latin America, or the Philippines, let us know when you reach out.

We’ll help any teams that are interested in running world-class digital marketing campaigns. Your company’s revenue should be 7 figures at the very least (with rare exceptions).

Most other recruitment agencies offer a 3-6 month guarantee. That’s simply not enough.
As a business owner, you’d be very disappointed if an employee – you paid to be found no less – didn’t last a full year in your company.
Our 12-month guarantee keeps us accountable and signals to the candidates that we have long-term intentions.
Our typical fees are comparable to regular recruiters – with much better results in digital marketing.
If you want us to work even faster, get twice as long of a guarantee, or work with a large group of decision-makers, our fees are comparable to reasonably-priced executive search firms.
We don’t work for free – why would we? – so we take a deposit. It will have a fair refund policy.
