There’s no doubt that the Internet is a major resource for nearly everything, and online marketing is a necessity for spreading awareness of your business and building your clientele. However, how you market yourself makes all the difference between success and failure, and a well-qualified marketing company will have all of the tools to help you reach your goals.
There are many things to consider when looking for the right company to market your business. Just like with any hiring decision, you wouldn’t just randomly choose someone without looking into their background, experience, and track record. When considering whether to hire a particular Internet marketing company, be sure to ask the following questions before making a decision so that you can get a solid understanding of what they can offer your business.
How long has the company been in business?
Companies that are new to marketing may not have the knowledge and experience necessary to develop a marketing plan that will have the highest degree of success, and you don’t want a company with little to no experience using you as a guinea pig for developing their marketing strategies. A company with many years of experience is more likely to successfully market your company how you want it to be marketed and achieve your specific goals.
Do they provide multiple marketing services?
Not only is communicating with one company much more convenient than dealing with multiple service providers, but a company that offers a comprehensive marketing program can ensure that your online presence is a positive reflection of your business and that it reaches your target audience.
All of your marketing efforts should work together to consistently convey your unique brand and message to your audience, and if you have services through multiple companies, this becomes more difficult. Inconsistencies in your business image may cause potential clients to doubt how genuine and trustworthy your business is.
In addition, companies that solely focus on SEO (search engine optimization) are concerned with rankings and backlinks rather than keeping up with the ever-evolving search engine algorithms and the needs of the consumers. If Google decides to update their search algorithms and SEO is your only marketing effort, you may lose your search engine presence and be back at square one. SEO is just one online channel in your marketing efforts, and other services that aid with local search, social media, and content marketing are also important to the success of your business.
How transparent is the company?
A legitimate marketing company will be willing and able to share all information about their marketing efforts. A company that refuses to give you information about their practices may be cutting corners that will dig you into a hole that will end up costing you more money.
Can you measure your return?
In addition to being open about their practices, the right marketing company should also be able to give you insight about the performance of your marketing program. Access to analytics and reporting will allow you to measure the return on your investment.
