Selecting the best from Marketing Strategy Firms
There are a lot of marketing strategy firms located in Maryland. Some of them have been around for decades, while others have only been in operation for a few days. So how do you as a business owner select the best one from the growing list of marketing strategy firms in the area? It is simply by taking it slow, and going into detail with those who interview, about exactly what they will be able to accomplish.
Tips when interviewing marketing strategy firms
Below are fifteen question you should ask before hiring a marketing agency.
- Who are some of their previous clients?
- Will the agency work with me to set and achieve company goals?
- How will the agency measure the success and ROI of the marketing spend?
- What things did you like about the last client you worked with, and what did you not like about them?
- Is this agency a one stop shop for all of your marketing and web design needs, or does it specialize in a particular silo?
- How much of the work will be outsourced?
- Who will you be working with on a regular basis?
- Does the team fit with my company’s personalities?
- What project management tools do they use?
- Which marketing software do they specialize in?
- How frequently will we meet?
- What is the format for these meetings?
- How long should my contract be?
- How available will I have to be?
- What is included each month with this contract?
As you can see these list of questions pertain to a variety of subjects ranging from strategic goals, the company’s offerings and capabilities, getting to know the team, the tools they will use, their version of account management, and understanding the contract and proposal! By asking these questions, we hope that the front runners become clear for you, and that list of growing marketing strategy firms start to dwindle!
