You’ve heard the old saying “you get what you pay for.” This is never truer than when talking about advertising. If you want your ads to be successful and bring in new business, then you need a professional running them. Digital Marketing agencies specialize in this type of work and are very good at it because they do it all day every day. They know what works best with different businesses, can handle any budget, and have access to the latest technology that will help increase your ROI (return on investment).
The first step to hiring an agency is determining your advertising goals. You should know what type of business you are trying to attract, how much money you’re willing to spend on ads, and the timeframe in which you want results. If you take time now to research companies that can help with these things then it will save both parties a lot of headaches later down the road. This initial discussion sets expectations for everyone involved so no one feels taken advantage of or disappointed during the process. Some ways agencies differentiate themselves from each other include price, experience level (newer agencies may not have as many case studies), industry knowledge/backgrounds (agencies might specialize in certain types of businesses), quality control procedures they follow when running campaigns, etc…
How much will it cost?
You can expect to pay anywhere from $20.00 – $150+ per hour depending on the company, industry, and services rendered (branding vs advertising).
A good agency will be transparent about how much work goes into your campaign so you know what type of ROI you should expect. If they aren’t upfront with this information then alarm bells should start ringing immediately because it means they don’t have confidence in their abilities or are trying to cut corners by not disclosing everything upfront.
How will an agency help?
Hiring an agency doesn’t mean that someone else is going to do all of the marketing for your business; it just means there’s another set of eyes helping out behind-the-scenes doing things like creating ad copy/designs, researching keywords, analyzing data, and optimizing campaigns. You should still be heavily involved in the process and have a good understanding of what’s going on so you can make decisions accordingly.
Advantages of Hiring a digital marketing agency to run your ads
- You don’t have to spend time learning the in’s and out’s of each and every platform you want to advertise on.
- They can take your business goals, target market, advertising budget and other factors into consideration when coming up with creative ad campaigns that will help you increase revenue while building brand awareness.
Disadvantages of Hiring a digital marketing agency to run ads
- It can be difficult to find the right agency for your business and they might not have experience with your industry.
- Every campaign is different so you will need an expert’s touch in order to see results. If you aren’t getting what you were promised then it may cost time and money to fire them and hire someone else, which would defeat the purpose of hiring an agency in the first place.
In conclusion, businesses should always weigh all of their options before making a decision and it’s important to understand what you’re getting into when working with an advertising agency. If done correctly, hiring an agency can be a great way to increase your bottom line while keeping your business goals top of mind.
