When looking to partner with a digital marketing agency in Baton Rouge, there are many things that you must take into consideration. What makes this process difficult is that there are tens of thousands of internet marketing firms that all look great and promise great things. So, how do you go about narrowing down your options and making the best choice? It can be helpful to identify the qualities that are most important to you.
Below are some of the qualities that we feel matter to most businesses and where to find them.
An ability to deliver information in a clear and concise manner.
Great digital agencies make it easy for people to learn about them. They have compelling websites that are current and up-to-date. You should have no problem finding the website, and it should contain valuable content that you enjoy reading. If the website is difficult to find, or the content is dry and boring, how can you be sure that the agency will do any better for you?
As you browse the company’s website, you should also notice a responsive design, intuitive navigation and effective calls to action. These assets will translate to your own website and ensure that you clearly convey the right message to the right audience.
A diverse team of talents and expertise.
A strong digital marketing firm has a team of experts they rely on. They may have a dedicated SEO expert, content writer, social media marketing manager, web developer and web designer. If you can’t find the team featured on the agency’s website, reach out and ask them who handles their services. Another good indication of a strong team is having an owner or founder of the company be easy to reach.
Knowledge and experience using various marketing tools.
Good marketing firms have a wide range of tools that are used for SEO, inbound marketing, social media analytics, email marketing, CRM and more. Their team should know how to use these tools to improve productivity, efficiency and results. The best part is that you don’t have to worry about learning these platforms or paying for their memberships!
A culture that you’ll enjoy working with.
Of course, everything can look good on paper and the agency still won’t be the right fit for you. That’s why it’s important to look at the company’s culture. Is this an agency that you feel comfortable doing business with? Are their meetings and phone calls with you fun and energizing? Does the agency have other businesses like yours that they’ve done great things with? In the end, you have to feel good about working with your marketing agency.
