Using a cheap digital marketing agency can be a great way to outsource your marketing to a cost effective professional.
I actually pride myself in offering some of the lowest priced professional cheap digital marketing services in the UK.
This doesn’t mean choosing a cheap digital marketing agency will always be a positive though.
It is important you are aware of the warning signs before choosing to go with a cheap digital marketing agency.
Some cheap digital marketing agencies can often use bad practices which will actually harm your website in the long run.
As a business owner it is important you are aware of the warning signs before contacting a cheap digital marketing agency.
Below I have listed 5 of the most common warning signs when you are about to choose a cheap digital marketing agency.
The biggest warning sign of a cheap digital marketing agency is if they offer unrealistic promises.
No one with experience in digital marketing would guarantee results.
The more unrealistic the promise. The more concerned you should be.
If you see a website advertising you can rank in 1st position or promising any SEO results you should be very wary.
Even if they do deliver on their promises the odds are high they have used some bad practises which in turn can harm your website.
Can’t contact the person doing the work
This isn’t a warning sign unique to cheap digital marketing agencies.
Some big agencies also can be guilty of this.
If you can’t contact the person who is working on your site it is a warning sign.
Either an inexperienced person is working on your site or they are outsourcing the work to someone else.
It is important you can contact the person doing the work.
They don’t offer any plan on the work they are doing
Any experienced digital marketing agency knows you get the best results from planning in advance.
If you can’t see a brief plan or even breakdown of work the agency is going to do to grow your business it is a warning sign.
Often cheap digital marketing agencies will limit administrative tasks to focus on doing the work but this doesn’t mean they can’t provide a basic breakdown.
If you ask for a breakdown of what work would be done and they don’t provide anything it is a warning sign.
If the cheap digital marketing agency you have found has a bad website it is a warning sign.
It shows they don’t invest into their own business so it is unlikely they will spend much time on yours.
Some websites also have a spammy feel and look this is a bad sign.
Find a cheap digital marketing agency that has a professional looking website.
They don’t give you different pricing options
The way I can offer cheap digital marketing services is by offering a range of pricing options for small & local businesses.
This ensures everyone has the budget for some form of digital marketing.
If a cheap digital marketing agency has a one set price it is a bad sign.
As your business grows it will require more digital marketing and in turn price will slightly increase, this is a positive as it means you are now investing more to get more customers.
If a cheap digital marketing agency is not flexible with pricing options offering you a range of services and different prices it is a warning sign.
