Choosing the right sort of agency is important, if you are a startup business, working with a freelancer or small marketing agency may be best since their monthly rates will be smaller. If you are a well established business like Jaguar Land Rover, then working with a larger well established agency is wise.
Another thing to consider is the agencies industry experience. Do they know your market, your competitors, your sector jargon?
If you are a business like Jaguar Land Rover, would you feel comfortable using an agency that has a strong background in fashion marketing or pet care companies? Possibly not.
Having a look at the agencies client list on their website is good, but what we do recommend is meeting them to really ensure that the campaign runs smoothly.
Before meeting an agency, we have a few questions that you may want to consider asking them, to ensure that you choose the ‘right’ marketing agency in Birmingham for you:
Sadly there are no guarantees when it comes to marketing, however you do not want to throw money into the wind. Asking is there are any performance measures, or absolutes is good. Again, you do not want to work with them for 6 or 12 months to find that you have not got anything to show for it.
How much marketing experience do they have? Have they worked with companies like yours in the past (similar size, similar industry)? How long have they been trading, are they new or well established?
How are they different to other marketing companies in Birmingham? Can they offer something extra to stand out, or are they just the same as everyone else?
Do they offer 24hr support, since many companies operate outside of the 9-5 working day.
