Choosing the most suitable agency for your business is not such an easy case, especially in the middle of these different crises. It is a critical part to consider carefully since the stake and switching costs are high. Following tips may help you in somehow selecting the right one for your business.
- Get Referrals
If you already have a business partner or trustful friend who knows this market well already, you can ask for them to recommend a good marketing agency for you. It will be more trustworthy if your partner has already used the marketing agency’s service and knows that they can deliver great results.
- Do Your Own Research!

Even though it’s always in your favor to take it further and clarify before committing your time with an agency. You will need to do your own background check. The best way is to ask them about their happy clients and then try to check if that client is really happy with their service or not.
- Let the agency introduce their credentials and teams to you.
If you found the agency with the services or portfolio of your desire, reach out to them! Set an appointment for them to introduce their agency to you online, or in person, it’s always better to get into talking quickly.
- Sign the NDA brief and let them present their idea.
You don’t have to have a full-fledged plan to approach an agency, just your ambition, and a brief! It’s the digital marketing agency’s job to find the best strategy for your company, let them do the work!
- Send briefs to multiple agencies and compare the work between them.
If you are stuck between different choices of digital marketing agencies, test them out with your brief and see which agency delivers the most promising plan which best matches with your expectation.
- Start small then scale out upon capability.
You should let them start working on small projects first, then give them more work once they can deliver to you.
