It’s me, Dc! U@? If you’re a business owner or not-for-profit, there’ll be times where you end up in need of some effective marketing and communications. So where do you get it?
You might be thinking about hiring an internal marketing team member to save you time and money you’re scared will get swallowed up by an agency, but we’re gonna serve up a lil’ advice: an in-house marketing person can 100% rock the role … if they have the right support.
We know taking the “in-house route” might be #trending in our tighter-than-average economy right now, but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered!
Full service, baby
Think about all the pieces needed to help your company brand better. A killer website? Definitely. Social posts out the whazoo? Duhh. Radio ads? Maybe. A custom corporate character? Yes, please!
Are you gonna get all of this from a single hire? ‘Dunno about that. But with a team of strategic and creative thinkers, you get a critical and full-circle approach! We’re known for agility, so you’ll get flexible plans and creation of marketing materials that moves, grows, and adapts with your business.
Dollah dollah bills
Sure, lots of big, boomin’ brands do have their very own communications crew. But most of us are small-businesses – so why spend money hiring in-house alone when you collaborate with a support system like us? It’s important to remember that the overhead of training a new employee to help with these things is costly – so they’ll need to be supported by people in the wings.
In our experience, if these wicked lone soldiers are left on their own, they typically bounce – and you ain’t got time for that!
