You know your business better than anyone else, so it may seem counterintuitive to hand over the marketing reins to an outside company. You already know how to use social media and you know your target audience, so marketing online should be a cinch, right?
The ugly truth is, it isn’t. Social media and consumer demands change with the drop of a hat. One day you’ve got it all figured out and then you wake up and Facebook has once again changed its algorithm and LinkedIn has a whole new design. Keeping up with the changes takes time, money and patience, precious commodities that are not always in abundance for the small business owner. Enter the marketing agency. A quality agency will help you build a strong online presence while providing the following perks.
Between running your business, managing your team and having a personal life, marketing either takes a back seat or cuts into the time delegated to other important tasks. Managing an online presence is a time-intensive job. It requires research, A/B testing and constant strategy planning. When it’s simply being “fit in,” the results are less than desirable. A marketing agency takes over that responsibility, giving you back that time.
Of course, you will need to spend money on the agency’s monthly fee, but compared to the money you save by freeing yourself from the endless strategy planning and content writing, it’s a deal. As the old adage goes, time is money.
Experts on your Team
Entrepreneurs and business owners are often jacks of all trades. They are accountant, hiring manager, owner and maintenance person. Marketing, however, is its own beast. The tools used for marketing are ever-changing. Consumers are constantly changing their minds and every day there is a new way to reach the target audience.
A marketing agency works as an extension of your team and instantly adds a group of experts to your efforts. Their job is to keep up with trends, research what works in your industry and execute a strategy that positively presents your brand to the consumer.
Hiring a marketing agency instantly crosses items off your to-do list. No more worrying about how to increase engagement on your business Facebook page. No more late nights spent trying to create content that will speak to your audience and get them to pick up the phone or visit your business. The right agency will be able to create a package that covers all your needs.
It’s hard to take a step back and see the big picture when you’re wrapped up in every aspect of your business. An outside team can look at what has worked for your company and create a strategy using fresh eyes. Sometimes all it takes is a new perspective to take a stagnant online campaign and give it new life.
