How Do I Choose a Digital Marketing Agency?

The total number of MSMEs in India goes beyond 63 million. It is estimated that 3 to 4 million businesses in India are operating online.
Most businesses struggle to maintain their online presence, although they genuinely offer excellent products and services.

Don’t let that be you!

A digital marketing agency can help you stay focused on your products and services while the professionals of the agency project your online presence.
But, how will you choose an agency that suits your business needs?

There are almost 35,000 digital marketing companies in India, so whom do you partner with?
Here is a guide that can help you choose the right agency for your business:

1. Define Your Goals:

The first task for you is to figure out what exactly and precisely you want to achieve with your digital marketing efforts.
Do you want to build brand awareness? You are planning to increase website traffic or improve conversion rates?
Execute a well-defined research on your goals and take note of your every research.

2. Research:

Once you have a list of your goals, it is time to research on the digital marketing agencies.
Compile a list of companies based on location, strength, services, years of experience, etc. Filter out the companies that specialize in your industry or have experience working with businesses similar to yours.
Check their websites, case studies, testimonials, and reviews to get an idea of their track record, expertise, and capabilities.

3. Evaluate Services:

Research the type of services offered by each agency. Analyze whether they have experience in the services that you want to acquire.
Explore their services, if they provide a comprehensive marketing strategy, if they offer additional maintenance services, or if they can get your graphics done at their cost or charge extra.

4. Experience and Expertise:

When you have shortlisted a few agencies, look at their proven track record of success. Verify their details such as the company’s CIN OR GST number, years of experience, client portfolio, certificates, and industry awards.
If possible, you can contact their previous customers to ask for unbiased reviews.
However, if you are reaching out to a company with high experience they will show you a portfolio or case studies before you ask for it.

5. Transparency and Proactiveness:

Evaluate the behavior of the organization you are reaching out to.
Effective communication is crucial for a partnership. Understand how responsive, transparent, and proactive the agency is. Assess how interested they are in your organization, how they respond to your inquiries, or how they close your assessment process.

Always make sure they are open to addressing your concerns, willing to listen to you, willing to understand your expectations with the project, and are transparent about their approach or ethics.

6. Budget and Pricing:

By this time, you already have assumed your budget. You must have figured out how much you want to spend on your digital marketing efforts. Now, it is time to inquire about the package charges the companies offer. Closely analyze their pricing structure. Select companies that offer transparent pricing structures and provide a neat breakdown of costs associated with your project, the costs associated with their services, and additional charges.

7. Culture Fit:

Acknowledge their culture, values, work ethics, and environment. Look how they prepared they come for the initial discussion. A good cultural fit represents a strong and productive partnership.
It is crucial to understand their ideology on your business, the growth, and the digital aspects of your business. Their words say a lot about their culture.

7. Reach Out:

Reduce the size of the list of potential agencies. Request for proposals and initial strategy plan from the top agencies on your list.

Schedule meetings, primarily office visits, with their team to discuss more details. Prepare a set of questions, some questions that are related to analyzing the company’s health, and some to assess their suitability for your business.

This 8-step procedure will help you find a digital marketing agency most appropriately. You will also be able to mark every checklist of your business.
