Marketing agencies: Probably more affordable than you think!

By March 28, 2017Design, Marketing2 min read

There’s a problem with the term ‘ marketing agency ‘ – it sounds expensive! Too often, we assume agencies are simply the privilege of high-end firms with unlimited budgets, passing the option by without a second glance.

But here’s a question: have you actually ever researched how much a marketing agency costs?

Now, in an ideal world, we’d all have infinite funds for marketing, knowing we could spend endlessly yet still have some new strategy to try. However, as far as we’re aware, no business is quite this lucky (and if they are, we want to know their secret!).  

So, when budgets are limited, you’ve got to fund the strategy that will add the most value to your business. Many businesses try to get there on their own, thinking an agency may be an unnecessary expense when resources are tight.

But really, this is exactly when you do need a marketing agency on your side:

  • Agencies have the expertise to assess your goals and recommend the best strategies for you
  • Agencies bring a multi-skilled team with them, meaning all aspects of your marketing can be covered
  • By getting an agency on board, you don’t need to pay a full-time employee to manage your marketing
  • Agencies see your business from the outside in, rather than the inside out.

However, we’re not coming at this with rose-tinted specs. We know there’s a vast number of marketing agencies out there with sky-high fees beyond the scope of many businesses. Others will only take you on if you’re prepared to make a certain minimum spend, while others tie you into lengthy contracts (and hefty bills in the long run).

However, not all agencies are like that – and at Garda, we’re proud of the fact we’re different.

As many of our clients will tell you, you don’t have to spend the earth to get results. We offer a range of cost-effective strategies that will not only turn your clients’

heads, but also add genuine value to your business. And, most importantly, they’re probably cheaper than you think! How about:

  • A logo redesign from £600
  • A website refresh from £1,200
  • A website audit from £750

Ultimately, we’re not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ agency. We’ll take the time to really get to know you and your objectives. We’ll take your budget into consideration – and we’ll only recommend the best options for you.

So when it comes to getting the very best value for your marketing, maybe you can have us on your side?
