Why You Should Hire An Internet Marketing Company
There are plenty of things in life that you could technically do by yourself but probably shouldn’t: tattoos, mild dental work, building a house or defending yourself in court being a few easy examples. The fact of the matter is that some things really should be left to the professionals and online marketing and e-commerce are two such things.
Firstly – and perhaps, most importantly – the full scope of marketing practice contains a far more complex skill set than it is often credited with. It is not just a matter of coming up with a tangentially relevant concept and sticking a few graphics over an image before sending out a mail to an unscrutinised list. That’s nothing short of a ticket to market indifference at best and a fully-fledged brand disaster at worst.
Getting noticed on the Net takes the co-ordinated efforts of various specialists, from copywriter, strategists and project managers to PRs and designers. These are all people who not only know the lay of the land and have the best maps, they’re also the people who can stand back from your brand with an objective eye, choosing what goes into a campaign more strategically than people too close to the business.
They know about the newest SEO keywords and changes in Google’s algorithms, they know what the latest viral trends are and they know how to use Analytics.
Divide & Conquer
Another thing that many businesses don’t consider is that outsourcing a certain level of your marketing isn’t so much a business expense as a cost-saving investment. Internal marketing teams (if you have one) are usually stretched to the absolute hilt. This results in either needing to expand teams, at the significant hit of adding full time employees to the payroll, or there is a compromise on quality. However, by outsourcing certain projects and campaigns to an outside agency, companies usually find that overall project costs come to less than that additional annual salary but it buys them the skill and expertise of a team; and that’s before you even get to the return on the investment of a committed agency focusing on a single brand.
Yes, the truth is that you could eventually get a handle on some of the skill sets on offer; but the fact of the matter is that executing them effectively as part of a cohesive campaign takes more time than you’re ever going to have. Making the investment in your marketing takes making a smart decision and the right agency is always the right answer.
