How to choose a Traffic Manager?

It is essential to choose a good Traffic Manager. In effect, you entrust him with the management of your digital marketing budget, which requires great rigour on his part. Furthermore, a Traffic Manager is required to work with a certain number of other employees (developers, web marketers, referencers, community managers, marketing managers, etc.). A good team spirit is a real plus.

A Traffic Manager's interpersonal and commercial skills are therefore human qualities (or soft skills) which are just as important as his technical knowledge.
