10 Major Benefits of Full-Service Agencies

Here’s why your company should consider working with a professional agency.

    1. Cheaper Than Hiring In-House – It’s more cost effective, and sometimes the only way for smaller companies to afford professional services. An in-house staff, facilities, systems, training, and benefits can eat up your marketing budget.

 

    1. The Latest Trends, Systems, and Software. – Agencies are always on the leading edge of trends and technology. Performance-driven agencies use analytical reports, data, and software to target the right offers, to the right customers, at the right time.

 

    1. Leverage Their Experience and Talents – Agencies have worked with various technologies, clients, and industries. They have the experience and data to prove what campaigns are most effective for your industry.

 

    1. Scalability on Demand – You can scale your efforts up or down depending on new products, seasonality, or for any reason. With an internal team, you must hire and train to scale up or layoff staff to scale down. With a firm you just pick up the phone.

 

    1. Work with the Experts – Think of them as a pool of specialists, and the pool is deep. Today’s inbound marketing requires many areas of discipline such as SEO, content, social media, branding, and paid ads. An in-house department may not have the bandwidth to handle all the channels.

 

    1. Quantifiable Results – A quality company measures all metrics to see what is working and where the ad spend does the most good.

 

    1. Fresh Perspective and Ideas – Your marketing will benefit from new ideas and perspectives that you and your team may not see when you’re so close to a project. Fresh eyes and new blood can bring a tired campaign back to life.

 

    1. Broader Skillsets – Your staff may not possess all the skills required for a comprehensive campaign such as graphic design or SEO. An outside firm is equipped with the talent and resources to bring your vision to fruition successfully.

 

    1. Continuity and Work Overflow – An agency can step in at a moment’s notice to pick up where a departed employee left off. They can help during times of peak demand and work overflow situations, providing continuity to the brand message across all channels.

 

  1. Complement Your Existing Marketing Department – Divide and conquer your promotional projects. Let your team handle the projects where they excel and outsource the other projects.  This division of labor enables your staff to be more efficient. There is no learning curve for them to use new methods or technologies.

An agency offering cohesive and effective brand strategies will place your company’s products squarely in front of your target audience. When you hire them, you save time and money paying for only the time, expertise, and involvement of each expert as required.
