Digital marketing today is no easy task. While it may be manageable if you’re lucky enough to have a large in-house team, for many organisations there simply isn’t the time to devote to acquiring the necessary expertise to generate better ROI. Plus, even for those businesses with the most extensive resources, in-house efforts are often simply not cost effective in terms of return on investment. But could partnering with a leading digital marketing agency actually increase your ROI?
The advantages of working with a digital marketing agency
Specialist advice and a wealth of experience
Digital marketing is a fast paced world and it’s often difficult to identify the most effective solutions without the right experience. For a leading digital marketing agency, being at the cutting edge of developments in the industry comes as standard, along with a wealth of proven experience in how to achieve results. With an agency partner you’ll have access to extensive marketing resources, industry specialists and a team up to date with the latest insights, from content trends to algorithm changes.
The cost of a full time marketing team in-house is usually far in excess of what you might pay to work with a partner agency. Economies of scale mean that you can pay less for more specialist advice because you’re not engaging with it every hour of every working day. So, not only are you likely to get a better quality of marketing service by partnering with an agency – and one that delivers increased ROI – but you’ll pay less for it too.
Clarity and perspective
Being inside the business often means that you have little perspective on it when it comes to marketing. You may be very wedded to concepts and techniques that are not working - but unable to see where the solution lies. An objective third party with depth of experience is the ideal way to break through that tunnel vision in order to make your marketing efforts more efficient and make your marketing spend go further.
When you’re handling all the marketing in-house then every tiny task falls to you – and many simply get pushed further and further down the list. The reality may be that it’s simply not efficient for you to handle every single task, only those you’re actually good at. With the help of a leading digital marketing agency you can streamline workflows, funneling off the tasks that would be optimally completed by the agency and focusing your available time where you can really add value.
Giving you the tools to do more
A partnership with a marketing agency isn’t about taking all your marketing efforts off-site and leaving you dependent on an external team. Instead, it can empower your business to do more with whatever resources you have, whether that’s with extensive agency support or just a little.
