There are over 35,000 marketing and design agencies in the UK. How do you find the right one for your business? Do you use an agency that is at the top of google? Do you ask a friend for a referral? Do you use a family member?
All marketing and design agencies are different. All have different experience. All have different ‘industry’ experience. All have different ‘age’ experience (in terms of have they just started doing marketing, or are they well established?).
The main thing for focus on is results. How is the agency doing for their clients? Are they generating results? Are all the clients happy? Are they confident they are getting value for money?
The marketing industry is broken down into different ‘disciplines’, as you will see from the menu option above. There are also marketing agencies that are ‘multi disciplined’ in that they have the resources in house to cover a variety of forms of marketing.
One thing to bear in mind is that all marketing companies are independent. There are no regulations to govern fair pricing. Therefore we do encourage you to shop around and compare quotes. All agencies set their own fees, which do vary considerably. Indeed you do want to get the best value for money, but you want to get results. Paying more for your marketing does not mean that you are going to get the best results.
Also bear in mind that all are profit making companies. They need to make a profit once they have paid their staff, their VAT, their office costs etc. So it is essential to shop around and compare quotes. Paying a lot each month for marketing does not mean you get more. However the cheapest agency is not necessarily the best.

Once you have found a few agencies that you like the look of, why not speak to some of their ‘current’ clients. Are the client happy? Are they getting value for money? Do not just leap in to marketing, choose your agency very carefully.
