Why It’s Worth Hiring a Digital Marketing Agency in Australia

April 16, 2019 No Comments

Featured article by Lyle MacLeod, Independent Technology Author

The way we shop and obtain services in Australia has changed, what used to only be on the HIgh Street has now moved online and if a company offering a product or service is going to be competitive, they are going to have to go where the customers are, and that is online. Where do you start? What do you do? Of course you can begin with a website but that website will have to have a presence online or no one is going to find you. You may already have a website and you may already have started to look at marketing strategies or you may already be having some success with them, do you go it alone or is it worth looking to hire a Digital Marketing agency such as Edge Marketing?

Advertising and marketing are complex and different strategies will be applicable for different products or services. Perhaps you are only working within your local area in Australia or perhaps you require national coverage or even worldwide coverage for your product or service.

There are two ways to organise your marketing strategy, either you do it yourself, in house, or you approach a digital marketing company. If you go down the route of doing it yourself, you will have to learn the techniques or employ more personnel to carry out the process for you, that will involve staffing costs and management of the staff, you are going to have to effectively build a team and for most businesses, that would not be a realistic option, even if you are highly skilled. In most cases, it would be more cost effective to employ the services of a Digital Marketing agency who will take the matter over for you in its entirety.

A reputable digital agency will be able to assess your product or service and / or your website and provide you with advice as to which marketing strategy would work best for you. Would you be best to consider paid advertising strategies or would you be best to consider SEO or perhaps a combination of both and should you change your strategy according to the season. It can sometimes be difficult to be objective enough to make those decisions for yourself as you can be too ‘close’ to your own product or service.

An agency can help you to think ‘outside the box’ and can bring ideas that you perhaps have not thought of to the table for your consideration. As your business grows, the agency is able to move easily with the changes and alter the strategies to suit.

Passing your marketing needs over to a digital marketing agency makes sense on many levels and it allows you the freedom to concentrate on what you are good at. Remember too, that many of the successful companies are either using agencies or have trained their own in house team over a period of time, you are competing in this market so it makes sense to use the experts to put yourself ahead of the competition.
