How to Choose A Digital Partner

Your digital partner should help you authentically connect with customers and support a continuous brand evolution.

2023 promises to be an exciting yet challenging year for many organizations. As the economy is changing, it requires a new form of marketing. 

So how do you choose a digital marketing partner who can help you authentically connect with customers and support a continuous brand evolution?

Here, we will highlight key aspects to consider before you take the plunge and hire a digital marketing company.

1) Define your organization's needs and develop a marketing budget.

The more specifically you can describe your business needs in terms of the website, SEO, social media, etc., the more effective your conversations will be with prospective digital agencies. You should be clear about how much you are willing to spend – and as long as your budget is reasonable – a good marketer should be able to deliver on your expectations.

2) Look for transparency within the organization. 

A reputable digital marketing agency has nothing to hide. Full transparency about pricing, client lists, agency capabilities, and strategy (vs. guaranteed results) should be the first criterion when choosing the right digital agency for your organization.

3) Look at the agency’s experience and social proof. 

For example, check out the agency’s portfolio and client testimonials and do your due diligence by speaking with their former and existing clients. It is important to learn about what an agency has done in the past- to be able to see what they can do for your future. 

4) Learn about the tech the agency uses. 

Every digital marketing agency uses some marketing tech tools for streamlining processes, measuring the effectiveness of their efforts, and making data-driven decisions. Your potential partner should be able to explain how those tools can bring value to your business.

5) Consider the scope of services the company provides. 

Your ideal partner should be able to demonstrate that they can help you establish a strong social media presence across the dominating platforms and cover such areas as website design, effective content & SEO strategies, and email marketing. What’s more, the firm should create a detailed roadmap that includes objectives, timelines, and activities they’ll be using to help your business reach its targets.

6) Look for a partner willing to customize their work for you. 

A good marketing agency asks questions about your organization, the overall competitive environment, value proposition, strengths, and weaknesses in order to craft a tailored strategy. Steer clear of companies that provide standard packages and don’t ask questions about your organization specifics, ideal persona, etc.

When looking for a digital marketing agency, it’s equally important that you and your potential business partner ask each other the right questions.
