Why E-Commerce Retail Brands Should Consider Hiring a Digital Agency

You may think hiring an ecommerce marketing agency is an expense your business just can't afford—when, in fact, the cost of an experienced agency can easily be offset by the improved campaign performance and growth that they will deliver.

You already know the importance of sharing relevant content, having an active social network, and staying in touch with your customers via email. But most small businesses lack the resources, time, and expertise to launch and maintain all the moving pieces of a successful, multi-channel advertising campaign, while at the same time focusing on their core business and delivering value for their customers. When the cost of working with an ecommerce marketing agency can be covered by the increase in revenue from previously untapped or neglected sources, the decision becomes clear.

Some businesses opt to divide their marketing efforts in an attempt to make the most of their investment. Afterall, you want to be sure that each element of your overall advertising plan is managed by the most experienced team. But, if you’re a small- to mid-sized business, you can’t afford (both in terms of time and money) to fragment your marketing efforts. Managing multiple vendors, across multiple marketing channels isn’t a viable strategy for most small businesses.

Wield partners closely with clients, taking the time to understand your business at a deep level. Any business owner can signup for a Facebook or Google AdWords account and start advertising. But in order to build and maintain campaigns that deliver sales at a positive ROI, and at scale, intentional planning and strategy are necessary.

It is this level of transparency that fosters deeper client relationships and the necessary trust for risk taking…moving your brand towards becoming a market leader, rather than a mid-market survivor.
