Business in an investment. To run a smooth business, you must invest in the right people as much as in anything else. Hiring the wrong people can slow you down, and choosing a wrong digital marketing agency to promote your business online can squash your growth, leaving you really, really drained. It is more like entering a bad marriage; one that will swiftly and inevitably culminate into to a painful divorce.
Want to save yourself a heartbreak? Make sure you do these following things before you hire a digital marketing agency to enhance your brand.
Hereare 3 things that you can do before signing up a new digital agency:
- Do your homework– Sounds a bit obvious but, you’d be surprised to know that many brands and business goof up at this stage. Before you choose the right digital marketing agency, look through their clientele. Look at the industries that they cater to. Are they a pro in the industry you hail from? Have they tended to other clients in the same space? If yes, then take a look at the kind of work that they have done. Ask for references and testimonials. And, while you are doing your research, take your time to go through the agency’s website. It will give you a good idea about the agency. Quick tip: Not impressed by the agency’s website?Don’t go for them. What can they possibly offer you that’s going to be any different?
- Have clearly defined goals– If it’s the first time you are going to approach a digital marketing agency, don’t be in a rush. And, don’t take quick, impulsive decisions about who you should partner with. Sit down with your in-house marketing team, and make a list of your marketing requirements. Decide what you want to outsource and what you want to keep in-house. Plan the details: like if you plan to keep SEO in-house and outsource content writing, then how should the two teams coordinate? Decide on a budget, and then go looking for a digital marketing agency within your budget who offers the services that you are looking for, and are best at what they do.
- Decide on the kind of agency you want– Depending on their area of expertise, there are different kinds of digital marketing agency. There could be traditional marketing agencies which will tell you that they have a digital marketing segment. Then, there are agencies that specialize in particular services. That would be the content writing companies, the social media agencies and website designing companies. But, if you want advanced digital marketing solutions for your business, you should be hiring a 360 degree digital marketing agency that provides end to end solutions.
To bifurcate it further, a 360 degree digital marketing agency could either be creative or performance based. Some of these agencies will give you award winning campaigns while others will focus on maximizing your ROI. Lucky for you, IMZ Media Solutions is a bit of both.
IMZ started off in 2009 as a hardcore performance based agency. Over the years, several brands and businesses have benefitted from its hard-hitting, ROI centric approach. But, as the years went by, IMZ released the importance of creative story-telling to enhance brands and acquire brand evangelists, and ventured into it.
