Why Marketing Consultants Make Absolute Sense

  • Social media provides immediate measurable ROI. Businesses will happily invest in marketing services if it results in leads and new sales.
  • Available budget. Most business have already allocated money to their advertising budget and most also have money evaporate on services they believe are doing a good job for them. They know spending on traditional advertising is dead money (just like sitting by the telephone waiting for someone like to call).
  • Outsourcing makes sense. Hiring a full-time Social Media Manager can be a huge cost to a small to medium business. Marketing services ease staff pressure;
    open the business to new strategic partnerships and networks; and bring transparency to return on investment
