So, you want to know more about digital marketing for a startup. A major reason why startups fail is a lack of marketing expertise. Understandably, when you’re starting a business, you’ll have more experience in your product/service than marketing it. No one can be an expert in everything, besides, it’s better to excel in a few things than being average in many.
One of the best tips you will ever get as a startup is this: outsource your digital marketing. Here are our 3 top reasons why outsourcing is necessary when considering digital marketing for a startup:
Outsourcing is the way to go if you want to obtain great results so that you can focus on growing your business.
1. There’s Less Risk
You’re an entrepreneur. It is perfectly normal if your digital marketing efforts are not providing the results you had hoped to achieve. Digital marketing is not just about posting every now and then. There are more intricate aspects and finer details of digital marketing to learn (and constantly relearn).
A digital marketing studio knows what size each image should be for each platform, how to tweak the backend of your website, and even when the best times to post content are. There’s less risk in outsourcing your digital marketing to an agency that specializes in the field.
2. You’ll See Better Results & Conversions
While an in-house editor can create beautiful copy, articles, and storytelling, these methods do not necessarily convert into sales. If what you’re after is more traffic and conversions, you’ll want a full digital marketing team, and that’s exactly what an agency is there for.
An agency has experience and expertise in inbound marketing and they constantly stay up to date with ever-evolving digital trends and algorithms. Outsourcing your digital marketing provides a proven content strategy and the implementation thereof.
Digital agencies are adept at finding the right people, your target audience, and turning them into customers. It’s their job!
3. You Can Save Time & Focus on Your Company
As an entrepreneur, it’s safe to say you have your hands full. Perfecting your product/service, getting investors, shipping, and the logistics of orders…there’s a lot of work involved in a startup. It’s easy to lose track of your digital marketing which is a whole other field of its own. That’s why people study it!
As a startup, you’re probably not thinking of which tools, platforms, and apps are the right ones for your company. A digital agency already has all of that, along with the knowledge and expertise on how to utilize them to benefit your business and reach your goal. An agency also has more hands-on deck. Each member specializes in a specific field, so you can get your SEO, newsletter, social media, and more done all at the same time.
Training employees, researching SEO and metatags, analyzing keywords, and having the correct image sizes and designs for the right platforms is energy and labour-intensive. Once you outsource your digital marketing, you can focus on your business and growth becomes achievable.
Agencies are very results-oriented. When outsourcing digital marketing, you don’t have to go through the trials and errors of what works and what doesn’t. When you work with a professional digital agency with experience, the results are guaranteed. All you have to do is relax and focus on your startup!
