Today, the working world is far more flexible than it has ever been. Business meetings now take place in much more relaxed and inspiring environments, we travel to see clients and employees have more options to work remotely. Businesses partner with each other to exchange services, benefit from each other’s knowledge and share a mutual ambition for growth.
Different businesses require different marketing and brand communications, so the level of work required varies greatly. When it comes to deciding who creates your marketing collateral, you may be torn between employing an in-house marketing individual, or outsourcing the work to an agency. As a Gold Coast digital agency, we clearly recognise the benefits to our clients of working in partnership with our creative team, but both parties have their benefits.
You hired your staff for a reason, so they obviously have a positive impact on your business, but there is only so much one individual can do. The cost of their wages is also added on top of the marketing spend, rather than one budget dedicated to your collateral. A marketing agency offers the expertise of a full team of creatives who each have their own skills to bring to the table. With each individual specialising in their field, you can take advantage of creative input from web developers, graphic designers, copywriters, SEO strategists and content marketers.
Nobody knows your business like you and your team, but it can be useful to work with an external agency to get an outside opinion on your marketing progress and communication channels. Delivering ideas on how to improve, an agency will also provide extensive reporting and results analysis to illustrate how your marketing budget and investment has had a positive impact on your bottom line.
More and more business owners, managers and directors are moving towards outsourcing particular jobs and projects to marketing, advertising, branding or digital agencies. Their services enable you to deliver improved online performance and marketing campaigns in the form of EDMs, SMS, social media and Google AdWords to capitalise on sales. Best of all, an agency is accountable for these services in their contract – your employees are not.
